Driving Directions from Campus

Continue driving north on South Lake Shore Drive, and then take the Randolph St. exit toward Wacker Dr/I-290. Keep left at the fork to continue on E. Lower Wacker Drive. Turn right onto Lower Michigan Avenue. Turn left onto E. Grand Avenue. Turn right onto N. Rush Street. The hotel driveway entrance is at 541 N. Rush Street.



Alumni can request a parking voucher at check-in to cover parking expenses and are encouraged to park in the self-park lot located on Rush and Ohio. Valet parking is also provided at the hotel (driveway at 541 N. Rush Street). We expect that a large number of people will want access to their vehicles in a short time frame, so we encourage alumni to use the Self-Park Lot option in order to expedite arrival and departure.
