The Crowne Plaza
Locals prefer the Chicago Transit Authority. You can pay in cash, but it's much easier (and a bit cheaper*) to purchase a transit card. You can buy one at the airport, the Dominick's Grocery Store 1/2 block north of the hotel on Halsted Street, or at any train station.
Get bus and train arrival time information from the CTA mobile site.
If you don't have a transit card, a cash trip will cost you $2.25. Exact change is required.
*As of last month, it now costs $5 to travel to and from O'Hare airport via the train. Hello, tourist tax!
Reasonably-priced for short trips around the Loop, but if you're going to the airport, the CTA is the more reliable (traffic-wise) and cheaper option.
Call or book online:
If you're staying at the Crowne Plaza and fancy a walk, it will take you about 25 minutes. The stretch of Halsted Street south of the hotel goes through the heart of Chicago's lively Greektown neighborhood.
Standard safety procedures apply: be aware of your surroundings, don't walk alone at night or if you're uncomfortable, etc.
