Anime Midwest will be held at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare and Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois, next to O'Hare airport and approximately 25 minutes from downtown Chicago. Some awesome highlights of our Midwest anime con are:
  • Hyatt hotel rooms are discounted for attendees, making staying at the convention hotel convenient and cheap. Getting a room is a great way to be part of the action early, while staying up late.
  • Our ConSweet, which includes free snacks and soda at the Embassy Suites. Attendees will have access to free ramen and soda all weekend, as part of their admission.
  • Our main events room can seat over 3,000+ people.
  • For those taking transit, the hotel is right near a train stop. We also have a discounted parking rate of $17 for those driving (only for Hyatt guests).
  • There is a one car limit per guestroom on parking at the Hyatt, please make sure your name is on your hotel room. If you are staying elsewhere there are two parking garages connected to the Convention Center and they are $15/day.
Please note. Get a room early before we run out of rooms at such a low rate. You may need to be 21 and have a credit card to get a room - consider bringing a parent. :) Rooms may sell out quickly.
