Hotel Considerations

Thank you to Rob O'Brien and her logistics team for scoping out these hotels within walking distance of both the Salesforce Tower and our Nonprofit Dreamin venue at 325 N. Wells Street, Chicago, Illinois.  We don't make any guarantees on the hotels or their pricing; however, these are mid range pricing and walkable to the venue.
