List of Accommodations
The following is a list of local accommodations for speakers in Chicago by area. Before making a reservation you should call to confirm the rates as they are subject to change during the year. In addition, be sure to ask what the cancellation policy of the hotel is to avoid paying for an unused room. When reserving rooms, please confirm with the hotel if they are able to bill the Council directly as hotel policies frequently change. If a direct bill is possible please be sure that the name of the workshop is specified on the invoice. The Council will pay for two nights only; extended stays or expenses such as phone calls, movies, internet services, etc. will not be covered. If your guests wish to stay downtown please keep in mind the possibly higher cost in addition to transportation to and from Hyde Park. In most instances, your guests would pay the bill and be reimbursed after their receipts are submitted. Please note this is not a complete list of accommodations available; CAS welcomes any further suggestions of possible accommodations. The rates listed do not include tax (N.B. 11.9% city hotel tax) and are subject to change during the academic year. Please inform us if you find good rates and if have very positive or negative experiences dealing with a hotel or airline so we can pass the information to other coordinators.
The University of Chicago has arrangements with some hotels listed in the downtown section and the Ramada Inn Lakeshore (Ramada will send CAS a fax to confirm the guest’s reservation) to provide discounted rates for individual speakers. To use these rates simply mention that you are with the University of Chicago and give them the contract number listed. The Council can also assist you with making reservations at hotels. Additionally, you may want to check out websites such as hotwire.com or priceline.com for better deals.
