Getting Here

Airports and the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA)

Attendees can choose from O’Hare and Midway airports. Regardless of what hotel or airport you choose, Chicago has a great offering of public transportation options to get you to the CNX office for training. Traveling by train (the “L,” not the Metra) is probably the easiest and most cost effective method as there is a Pink/Green line stop (Clinton) just a block from our office building. After getting off on Clinton, walk down the set of steps facing north. From there you will go west on Lake St. (train runs parallel above Lake St.) and then take your first right on Jefferson. You will be traveling north to our office, which is at 217 N Jefferson and will be on your righthand side.

From the “L” to CNX

Walk just past Trattoria Isabella Italian Restaurant (yellow awning) and take a quick right toward the office building connected to the Italian restaurant. Use the call box to dial CNX; upon receiving your call we will buzz you into the building. Take the elevators to the fourth floor (Suite 450). Our office is on the right side of the hallway.

If you get lost, please do not hesitate to contact us at (312) 477-7451 and we will be happy to help you find your way.

Meals and Refreshments

All classes include “breakfast goodies,” coffee and other drinks, and a catered box lunch at no extra cost.

This Hampton Inn location is less than two blocks from the Grand/State Red Line “L” stop. If you choose to travel by train, this may be the best hotel for you. Simply hop on at Grand/State stop ($2.25/ride; $4.50 round-trip; yes, still cheaper than a cab), going toward 95th (south) and get off at the next stop (Lake), then transfer to the Green Line (no extra cost, but need to exit the red line station and walk across the street to the elevated green line tracks). From there take the Green line toward Harlem and get off after just two stops at Clinton. The CNX office is around the corner on Jefferson, just north of Lake St (217 N Jefferson, Ste 450). If you choose to forego the public transportation and walk, it is just over a 1/2 mile to CNX.
