The Chicago in 2022 Worldcon Bid has chosen the Hyatt Regency Chicago as it’s site. More information can be found on our Facilities page.
The Hyatt Regency Chicago is located in downtown Chicago, right on the Chicago River just east of Michigan Avenue (The Magnificent Mile).
Chicago is a world class city with restaurants, museums, theatre, music venues, shopping, and so much more!
Museums – The Art Institute of Chicago, The Adler Planetarium, Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum of Natural History, Museum of Contemporary Art, and The Museum of Science and Industry to name a few.
Parks – Millennium Park and Grant Park (home to Buckingham Fountain) are both downtown. Both have several free music festivals and other events during the summer. The Chicago Jazz Festival is held in Millennium Park over Labor Day Weekend.
Arts – There are several Broadway-quality theaters in downtown, and dozens throughout the city as a whole. Orchestra Hall, home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, is downtown, as is the Lyric Opera.
Sports – during the summer, there are opportunities to see the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox (baseball) and the Chicago Fire and Chicago Red Stars (soccer).
And more! Too much to name here.
It has a very accessible public transportation system and is served by two international airports, O’Hare and Midway, as well as Amtrak and Greyhound.
