While the Chicago Midway International Airport (MDW) is another airport option in Chicago, Illinois and is serviced by most major airlines, the airport is located close to 30 miles from the hotel and the drive can take an hour or more with traffic. A taxi, Uber, or Lyft would be needed from this airport and the cost of the ride may be significant.
