Chicago's South Loop has become one of the city's busiest business corridor. We recommend downloading the Spot Hero app to search for the best day rates within the vicinity. Street parking is available but is limited. McCormick Place parking garage offers in-door parking at a daily rate of $36.
Traveling to the Hilton Garden Inn McCormick on the CTA can be easy to the hotel and venues. The Green Line is two blocks west of the hotel and allows riders to walk less than five minutes to the venue.
