The best transportation option from O’Hare or Midway airports to the hotel is a suburban taxi that charges a flat rate (regardless of number of passengers). Trains do not run directly from the airport to the suburbs. To get to the hotel by train, one would go by train from O’Hare to downtown and then from downtown to the suburbs, which is about a 2-hour trip.

To get these flat rates, you must call the taxi (using the numbers below) after you collect your luggage at baggage claim. Meet the taxi at the third ring of traffic pick-up places outside. (They will tell you what exit door to use to find the place once you tell them what airline you have flown on. That way they know what terminal you are in.)

You cannot get these fares by going to the line of taxis outside.

Taxis take about 20 minutes in normal traffic and charge a flat rate of approximately $30. Companies include:

The DoubleTree Chicago Oak Brook is convenient and centric to Chicago International O’Hare Airport, Midway Airport, downtown Chicago, and the business districts of Oak Brook, Oak Brook Terrace, Lombard, Burr Ridge, Westchester, Lisle, and Naperville. It  features 7 floors of guest rooms with a total of 427 guest rooms and suites.  Additionally, the centric location of the swimming pool, whirlpool, fitness center, and business centers makes access convenient to all guests (learn more).

Make your reservations for the REA Annual Meeting, Nov 7-9.
The special rate for meeting attendees is $119 per night for a single or double room (not including tax). The special rate applies to a few days before and after the meeting. Please be sure to say you are with the Religious Education Association to receive the special rate.
