I attended a conference here. Service was great and I had the BEST vege burger of all times at the bar in the hotel. It is a few blocks from the lake with a gorgeous walking and biking trail. I highly recommend experiencing the trail....More

I’ve attended several IMTS tradeshows over the years. The 2018 layout in the North, East, South and West halls were multilevel. There were 17 miles of just isles at this event. Bring your walking shoes if you plan to attend the IMTS.

I have always had great success with any event I have had at McCormick Place. The bigger the even the better they do.

Here for a tradeshow and this place does not disappoint. Multiple hotels are within walking distance and connection through a skywalk.

I had not been to Mccormick Place for a trade show in over 15 years. I was impressed with the major expansion and renovation. It is nicely laid out, connected to multiple hotels and has its own Metra train station.

Was here for a conference and can't believe the sheer size of the place. I easily did 10000 steps on my fitbit just getting from one room to another during a day. What an amazing construction effort it must have been.

Attended a huge convention at this site. It was pretty tough to navigate at times, until you got the hang of it. There was also a shortage of bathrooms and the coffee and breakfast lines were looong. If you attend a conference here, the Hilton...More

For conference centers, McCormick Place isn't bad. Here's why: 1) Size: It's HUGE! I attended a 22,000+ conference there and it felt much smaller because of the sheer size of the place. It's massive and you'll get thousands of steps walking from room to room....More

South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of
activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you
happen to visit during football season, you may bump
into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears
game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the
flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and
educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and
aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park

Parking is solid lots of space you would get a spot not sure the price it was not too bad for the event I attended. Uber is always a good option in the city. I would get an Uber and go downtown for dinner.
