Hmm, it's not there now. There was a housing info sheet pdf with the request form. It listed the 3 hotels and the rates. Maybe they took it down b/c housing hasn't opened yet and people tried requesting rooms. I'm bummed b/c all 3 hotels only have doubles, no queens. As best I can recall, all of the rates were below $200/night. I tried finding better rates for the same hotels on other sites and couldn't.
My first year we stayed at a four star non-conference hotel because one of the gals who went with us worked at a hotel in our area that was affiliated with it and we got a good discount. It was about a 5 block walk to a conference hotel which for me isn't bad. The last 3 years we've stayed at the Sheraton. Nice hotel, within walking distance of a lot of places (Navy Pier, grocery store, shops, tour boats, etc). The first year we paid for hotel in our room until I discovered we could get wifi down in the lobby area - won't do that again!
Most our cluster has moved to the Essex Hotel which is across the street from the Chicago Hilton. The shuttle stops between the two hotels. I'm staying at the Hilton only because I'm using Hilton points to pay for the room and get good upgrades.
I've never gone to conference - I've only been in Pchef for 8 months. Would one of the totes be good to take instead of a pocketbook . Somebody said the planes count your pocketbook as a carry on ???
Thanks for any info for this newbie
PC usually gives you a tote bag when you get there. Check with your specific airline about their carry-on specs. Usually you can do a carry-on bag that will fit in the overhead bin and a personal item such as a purse, laptop bag, etc.
