This place is Huge! Every time I go here for some show I am reminded of how out of shape I am. The parking inside is good, I only park outside if there is no choice. The only issue is leaving the one garage they...More

This is a top notch convention location. I've been to many convention centers but McCormick Place blew my mind in terms of its space and amenities. If you are having a large conference (1,000+ attendees) this is a great venue.

I have attended several conventions here. The location is perfect for this. Always clean and it is huge!

McCormick Place is probably the largest convention center in the country and building continues to expand it further. It also offers the advantage of being located in a city with plenty of hotel space, so conventions exceeding 100,000 conventioneers can be easily accommodated. The building...More

Very nice modern convention center. Plenty of Bathrooms but make sure you wear comfortable shoes as you will be walking a lot. No good food, Starbucks packed with a line of 17 people throughout the shows. Nothing healthy to eat.

Great staff. Louise at the front desk is extremely helpful and accommodating with my complex multi-room reservations. Professionalism and dedication to guest service is very high.

I have no complaint about the facility itself, it is very nice. But it is not within decent walking distance of hotels (save for the Hyatt) or good restaurants. It is not near "the action" of Chicago - that you will find is closer to...More

McCormick Place is a fantastic convention center. With spacious, well-organized, conference halls, and with restaurants in, and around the area, our conference stay was excellent. Combined with shuttle service to many hotels throughout Chicago, our entire stay was perfect.

Joined the 2017 NRA and BAR Show. Amazing and very well coordinated event. A must for all and everyone involved in Restaurants and Hospitality (F&B) Industry. The place is big enough to let more than 40k people along 3 days of show. Noce stats: 17,000...More

South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of
activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you
happen to visit during football season, you may bump
into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears
game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the
flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and
educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and
aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park

We used the bus. It was cheaper to leave the car in the parking garage there and use the bus system to get around. It was maybe $2 a person to use the bus. The pick up area is directly in front and there are maps so you can... More
