PLAND, Taos mesa, NM

We’ve gathered together a shortlist of hotels, hostels, and B&B options for those of you traveling from out of town to attend Hand-in-Glove and needing accommodations while in Chicago. You can also check listings on the site Airbnb to find local residential offerings.

If you are interested in staying with a friend of threewalls, please see the Homestays comment thread or contact us at penny (at) for information about Chicagoans offering to host conference attendees.

Though there are very limited housing accommodations available in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood (where the conference will take place), the city has no shortage of local housing options for visitors. Downtown Chicago, which has an abundance of hotels, is very convenient to Geolofts. We’ve also included a few places in some of our favorite neighborhoods. Rates vary widely, so you might check Priceline for the best rates available during your stay.
