Hotel is walking distance.
  • We recommend the Hyatt Place. Ask for a UChicago rate and they will have shuttles to the Booth School of Business and/or it is walking distance.
  • La Quinta. A bit further away.
  • AirBnB is not recommended in Hyde Park, though you could stay in other parts of Chicago.
