Visitors can fly into Chicago Midway (MDW), which is 10 miles from McCormick or to Chicago O-Hare International Airport (ORD) which is 21 miles away. Both airports offer rental car options and have a Chicago Transit Authority train station with connections to McCormick Place and downtown hotels.

The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) “L” trains provide service to McCormick Place from both international airports. The Cermark-McCormick Place Station is on the Green Line and is a 2 block (0.15 miles) walk from the Trip-Plex Hilton Hotels and a 6 block (0.5 miles) walk to the entrance of McCormick Place.

From O’Hare International Airport: The CTA “Blue” line provides service to and from the airport. Take the Blue Line from O’Hare and transfer to a south-bound Green Line train at Clark and Lake. Note, in the Loop the Blue Line is a Subway Train and the Green Line is an elevated train, a free transfer is available at Clark and Lake. Our experience is this is a roughly 1 hour trip.

From Midway Airport: The CTA “Orange” line provides service to and from the airport. Take the train to the Roosevelt Street Station and transfer to the elevated Green Line Station. Continue on the southbound Green Line train for 1-stop to the Cermak-McCormick Place station. Our experience is this is a 30 minute maximum trip.
