Pampered Chef: Limo from the airport for Conference #3

    Hi Everyone--
    I just wanted to let you know that four people from my cluster have rented a limo to take us from O'Hare to the Sheraton Towers Downtown for Conference #3. We will be arriving on Wednesday morning around 11:46 on American Airlines.

    The limo that we rented seats six people. Right now the 4 of us are paying $25 each. If there are two more people out there who would like to join us, you are more than welcome, just email me and we can work something out. By doing this we can cut the cost a little more for everyone and be more comfortable and have a more enjoyable ride than the shuttles provide. (In the past we've found that this has sometimes been cheaper than the shuttle prices and it is definately more enjoyable and relaxing.)

  2. Our group is too big to join you (we have 8) but can I ask you where you rented your limo through?

    I contacted two companies that I found on line. Here are the prices that I received and their phone #s. Keep in mind, this is for a 6-person limo:

    Allied Coach & Limo 866-690-2200
    Rental of Limo $79.00
    Tax $4.00 flat fee
    15% gratuity

    American Coat 630-629-0001
    Rental of Limo $85.00 (this inlcudes the tax)
    Gratuity 20%

    We did this a couple of years ago when we went to conference and it was much better than taking the shuttles. More room and more comfort. We were able to meet up with some consultants at the airport that also joined us to split the cost, which we might be able to do this year as well.

    When will your group be arriving and leaving? What hotel are you staying at?

  4. We are arriving the 13th at 2:15 pm then leaving the 17th at 8:30 am. We had quite a bit of trouble this year securing rooms at the Conference Hotels for all of the nights we needed so we made alternate arrangements. We are staying at the Embassy Suites just down the road from the Sheraton. I am soooo excited!!! I can not wait. Wednesday can not come fast enough. :)

    Embassy Suites

    Hi Dawn
    I just got back from conference yesterday and my cluster stayed at the Embassy Suites next to the Sheraton. WOW great rooms, great service, You will enjoy it. Have Fun... :)
  6. Thanks for the imput!!! Last year we stayed at an old historic conference hotel. The Lobby was beautiful but the rooms were old and dated. It worked just fine to sleep in but it sure will be nice this year to have the extra living room just to get out from each others feet! LOL

    Did you have an amazing time??? Don't reveal any secrets but let us know how exciting it was.

    Conference was soooooo...........exciting. You are going to be loving it!! :)

  8. Limo Service that's EXCELLENT

    Hi, I'm new to this awesome site but I attended the first conference session and we found the MOST EXCELLENT limo service. The company is AIRPORT Taxi & Limo. They offer mini vans or Lincolns. My roommate & I shared a Lincoln and our driver was Sherif. He was so professional...we felt like Hollywood Stars. We each only paid $26.00 (but I believe 4 could fit comfortably) and the ride was so much more comfortable than any taxi or shuttle. He even took us back to the airport on Sunday (a day he doesn't normally work).

    Make sure you ask for SHERIF (his personal number is 773.216.5366) We are keeping his card for next year's conference.

    Hopefully, this info isn't too late!
