Good layout, well staffed and organized to accommodate even very large conventions. Lots of parking available, though some will require a bit of a walk.

No wonder McCormick is the largest convention center in the U.S. I attended a four-day conference and left exhausted of moving from a room to the other. I wish I had rollerblades on :-)) I don’t know why, but no coffee shop over there was...More

This place is BIG! Fortunately there are sky bridges between the two main hotels and the convention center. I am told McCormick Place is the largest convention center in North America.

I recently attended a wonderful music conference at McCormick Place! The convention center is beautiful with a wide range of spaces for conferences and meetings, as well as excellent dining options. The Hyatt and Marriott hotels are directly connected via indoor sky bridges.
