I attended a convention in February. This place is Huge. Be prepared to do a lot of walking. Fortunately we were provided with shuttle buses for the event. Otherwise you would have to take a taxi and it would not be cheap. The Convention center is not located by the hotels downtown. It is very close to soldier field. They have a food court but the prices are more than most of the restaurants and the food is not as good.
