          I was in Chicago at this same hotel 3 weeks ago. It cost me $62 from O'Hare to Radisson Blu. No need to make taxi reservation.

          Quit smoking, so no idea. Ask the hotel about their policy.

          I'm sure the concierge will be able to help you with that. I'd call ahead and ask. FYI, there are a ton of dog parks right next to the hotel.
