IMPORTANT - MORE ROOMS OPENING UP @ the Holiday Inn

FYI, I called Diane Fuentes, our sales rep at the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza, and she is going to arrange to have 10 more rooms added to the Chicago(ish) Tweetup block (that's the reference code for the block when you call). They will add more rooms after that as more people reserve rooms.

If you call a couple of weeks from now and reservations says the block is full, please get in touch with Diane Fuentes 312.529.1115 and ask her to open up more rooms. Read more »

Block of Rooms at the Holiday Inn Mart Plaza

We have a block of rooms reserved under Chicago(ish) Tweetup. For more information, see the 'Holiday Inn' page. Don't wait too long to reserve your rooms; the cutoff date is March 10th to reserve at the group rate!

We strongly suggest flying in or carpooling, as parking is $36/night and you won't really need a car for any of the activities and events we'll have planned. More on those as we hammer out the details, but right now we're looking at Friday night karaoke at The Blue Frog, since it was such a big hit last time, a trip to the Willis (or do you still say Sears?) Tower Skydeck, a photo walk, and maybe a museum tour. Check out the Public Transit page for deets on getting a prepaid train/bus pass. Read more »
