Parking is expensive- $15. You have to pay at in the parking ramp lobby. Please note there are machines that take cash or credit and some that take only credit cards. At the time we left, the credit-only machines had very short lines.

Rosemont's MB Financial Park is on opposite side of garage. Good restaurants to choose from. Plus they'll validate your parking.

The MB Financial Park Entertainment District is on the other side of the parking lot from the convention center. Ask at restaurants about parking validation.

If you use the transit parking on the north side of the freeway, it costs just $5. You have to walk about 3 blocks, but it is worth it.

Parking in lot is expensive unles you go eat at the nearby restaurants west of the lot--they validate the parking ticket, thus it's free.

Get better quality food, reasonably priced, at closeby restaurants (many to choose from). Food at show is mediocre and super expensive for what you get!

$13 to park in the parking garage. But you can leave your coat in the car so that is nice.
