How do I get to the hotel room from the airport?

Chicago has two airports - O'Hare (ORD) and Midway (MDW), which are both 15-20 miles from Downtown Chicago. Taxi service is readily available from both airports and runs about $35 one way.  Depending on the time of day, a cab will take approximately 30 minutes.

The Chicago subway system, known as the 'L,' provides service directly from O'Hare to Downtown Chicago via the Blue Line and from Midway to Downtown Chicago via the Orange Line for $2.25 each way.  The 'L' will take approximately 40 minutes from the airport to Downtown Chicago.

GO Airport Express offers airport shuttle services between Chicago area locations and O'Hare and Midway Airports. Efficient, safe, and economical airport shuttles depart from O'Hare and Midway Airports every 15 minutes for Chicago downtown and many suburban locations.
