The Hilton Garden Inn – Chicago O’Hare in Des Plaines, IL is conveniently located just north of both O’Hare International Airport and the bustling city of Chicago itself. It comes with a free, twenty-four-hour shuttle to and from O’Hare. An onsite restaurant makes dining in the Windy City a breeze.

The suburb of Des Plaines is full of things to do, with plenty of great restaurants and stores. From the neighboring suburb of Rosemont, it’s just an easy Metra-ride into the city to enjoy everything Chicago has to offer, from Navy Pier, to the Willis Sears Tower, and more!

We’ll also be hosting a pre-conference party on Friday, June 28, open to all conference attendees and their friends and families. This will take place from 6:00 to 7:30 PM in the hotel lobby, featuring lemonade, assorted snacks–and of course lots of nerding out about books!
