Rosemont

Post by Mike Bentley »

1. They're building some giant new fashion outlet mall that opens next month. Looks like there will be more food (and, uh, fashion) options at the next NAQT event.

2. Anyone know a good place to park overnight in Rosemont without paying a ton?

If it's just one night, the Rosemont CTA station lot. Rates are here.

I am totally hoping for a Quizbowl fashion show.

On a helpful note when we stayed at Aloft (sexy, sexy times) there was available street parking by Maria's. I parked in an office lot nearby, but they caught on by Sunday morning and threatened to have my rental towed even
Though the lot was empty. Though street parking is also not ideal.

Very cool. My biggest gripe about the Hyatt Regency O'Hare was its placement in the middle of a "food desert;" if this is within walking distance, it should open up more non-delivery food options for teams. Does anyone know what the approximate walking distance will be?

Also, now there's really no more excuses for louts like Matt Bollinger and Seth Teitler to go without belts!

This was actually open during the ICT this year (I walked there and it took about 10 minutes). There's also a new casino a couple miles away.

The fashion outlets are like a 10 minute walk from the Hyatt Regency.

There's also an outdoor mall next to the movie theatre which is less than 10 minutes away. I don't know how long this has been open for--I hadn't noticed it before, but it's possible it's been around for a while. Most of the restaurants still looked a little pricy in the mall, but they're probably better than the hotels.

The theater has been there a while and has a full restaurant in its upstairs that no one else seemed to take advantage of at ICT.
