It is so easy to get around from our location – CTA bus ride to Millennium Park on #56 bus and loop is 15 min.; 4 minutes via subway; 15 minutes to the Gold Coast and North Michigan Avenue shops via the Division Street #70 bus.  If you wish to walk downtown, it is a 50 min. walk to the Art Institute of Chicago.

We highly recommend taking public transit (about 45-60 minutes) from the airports ($5 O’Hare and $2.50 Midway), but there is an Express Shuttle bus (about $22) or cab service ($45+ depending on traffic) that can get you here, too – allow approximately  1-1.5 hours door-to-door via shuttle or cab from either airport.  At any subway station you can purchase ($5) a new VENTRA card that can be used to have single rides automatically deducted for more than one person or you can validate the card for  1, 3 or 7 day transit options.  They may have an app for smartphones soon, too.  Buses  accept cash, but when you get off you pay another full fare on the next bus.  N.B., if you purchase a VENTRA card and register it on line you will get a $5 credit after the fact that you can use after the refund is applied.
