Hotel Accommodations

Additional hotel rooms: If you are not able to reserve a room at the Doubletree Hotel, we recommend that you contact the Renaissance Oak Brook Hotel at 1 (800) 468-3571 or (630) 573-2800 and ask for the LOEX rate. The Renaissance is within walking distance of the Doubletree.

LOEX 2008 will be held at the Doubletree Hotel Chicago-Oak Brook, Illinois (1909 Spring Road, Oak Brook, Illinois).

We recommend that you wait to make reservations after your conference registration is confirmed.

American Taxi offers a flat rate between Oak Brook and O'Hare/Midway airports. Passenger information for calling a cab from the airports is available online.

  • Public transportation - Public transportation is possible from the airports, but not convenient.
