The hotel (Country Inn and Suites) and the conference center (Belvedere Banquets and Events) are located in the same building in Elk Grove Village, IL, just a short shuttle ride from O’Hare Airport. If you need to use the shuttle from the O'Hare to Country Inn, they require you to call in advance directly to the hotel at 847-534-0600 with your flight number and times. The hours that the shuttle is available is from 9 am to 9 pm. But you do have to make a reservation. Try to fly in to O’Hare if you can. Midway and Milwaukee are quite a distance away and the shuttle will not pick up from any locations other than O'Hare.
