The conference discounted rate for the hotel is $150 (including tax) per night for a room with two double beds. All rooms include a refrigerator, free wifi, and are in the same hotel the Color of Violence conference is being held in -- so there is no hectic commute around Chicago.

The Transgender Law Center is hosting their National Summit in THE SAME hotel during the SAME weekend as Color of Violence (!)-- AND so is the Black Women's Expo-- a Chicago centered conference that celebrates the lives of Black Women. So this location is going to be extra full of critical fabulousness!
The conference committee originally planned to hold the conference at the University of Illinois, Chicago, but due to the boycott of the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign, and the potential impact the boycott has over the entire U of I system as the situation unfolds, we decided to move the conference. (More details & analysis on this soon.) This hotel is currently union-approved!
The hotel is 10 miles from Midway Airport and there is a shuttle (not included in the room price) that will take you both Midway or O'Hare Airport to the hotel, and back again.
In addition to being completely accessible, the Hyatt McCormick is near Chicago Public Transit and has a Metra Stop inside the hotel that will take you to the heart of downtown in less than 10 minutes. There is a lakefront walk that takes you to museums and the planetarium.
This hotel has four eateries including a to-go counter open until midnight. Conference registrants will get a 10% discount of food sold in the hotel eateries, Shor & Forno.
