Accommodation Tips

Visiting Chicago for the game? Make sure to plan accordingly. There are always multiple events happening on a given weekend. On the Sunday morning after the Penn State - Northwestern game, the Chicago Marathon will be taking place, so hotel rooms in the immediate downtown Chicago area may have limited vacancy or higher rates.
