If you’re a delegate to the 2016 IAM Grand Lodge Convention, you’re going to have a busy week. But you have to get to Chicago first, and once you’re there and have some free time, you’ll want to know where to find the best restaurants, attractions and more. The Grand Lodge Convention Travel Guide has you covered.

Transportation: Book now with Go Airport Express to save 15 percent on a shuttle from O’Hare or Midway airports to the Chicago Hilton. Go to or call 1-888-284-3826 to make a reservation. Use the code “IAMAW.”

Parking: If you’re driving to Chicago, we’ve arranged for a special parking rate of $30 per day, with in and out privileges, at the Chicago Hilton.

Restaurants: Chicago is world-renowned for its restaurants. The Travel Guide includes a list of nearby dining options, with some special recommendations from the Grand Lodge Convention Host Committee.

Attractions: The Windy City has one of the most beautiful downtowns in the world, and you’ll be right in the middle of it. Catch a show at the Chicago Theatre, pick up souvenirs on State Street or visit Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium or Field Museum (great for kids!)
