Make your MPIG lodging arrangements SOON!

If you are planning to come to MPIG 2010, please book your hotel room at the UIC Medical District Marriott now! The hotel is an easy walk to the meeting site, and near lots of public transportation. We have reserved a block of rooms at a very good discounted rate. THIS RATE WILL EXPIRE ON SEPTEMBER 2!

You may want to consider reserving a room at the Hosteling International Chicago, a very nice hostel in the heart of downtown. Space in a dorm room costs $29-35/night, and larger groups can get even better deals: . The hostel is near the Pink Line "L" train, which will take you directly to UIC.

You can explore your options through these Priceline searches--->
Downtown, up to $200/night
Loop/Grant Park, up to $200/night

Wherever you decide to stay, keep in mind your public transportation options. Google Maps allows you to get directions using public transit. You can also go to the CTA site to plan your routes around the city.

You have affordably priced options for traveling to Chicago from many locations in the Midwest on Amtrak and MegaBus (I highly recommend this). Please don't hesitate to email me with questions regarding your trip - I am happy to help!

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago,
