For the event, we’ve blocked dorm rooms right at the venue in the Wabash Building located at 425 S. Wabash. You can use this link to reserve your room. Including taxes, the rate is $87.30 per night.
For attendees who are on a tighter budget, the Chicago Hostel is less than a block from the venue, at 24 E Congress Parkway. Check the site, but it looks like you can get a bed there for under $40 per night. Use the site or call 312/360-0300 to reserve a room. Click here for more information. There is no block at the hostel.
Roosevelt’s website offers additional lodging suggestions. Check out this link, but make sure you don’t book near the Schaumburg campus. That’s a hour from where we’ll be. You may be able to get a special Roosevelt rate, according to the website.
A few other options that aren’t listed on the Roosevelt site:
- The Congress Plaza Hotel, a block away and the site of the 2012 WDC.
- Holiday Inn, 506 W Harrison, about three-quarters of a mile from the venue.
- Crowne Plaza, 733 W Madison, about a mile from the venue.
