Many thanks to our event hotel, the Congress Plaza Hotel(map) in downtown Chicago. Near the loop and many major city attractions, it is conveniently located within blocks of the start of the skate. Skate Chicago has been offered special group rates of $179 per night + tax during the event for both single and double bed rooms. Subject to availability, the hotel has offered to extend event rates 3 days prior to and 3 days after our skate weekend.
Currently we have a block of 30 rooms (10 single bedrooms, 20 double bedrooms) for the event. An initial deposit of 1 night is required, and must be made no later than 4/21. The Congress Hotel has told us that reservations can also be cancelled prior to 4/21 for a full deposit refund.
If the event fills our 30 room block The Congress Hotel will try to hold the event rate for us, again subject to availability, but please reserve your room asap to lock in the $179 rate.
