How do you get to Whinny City? Well, that depends! Where are you? Up North by Ponyville Ciderfest? Out west, beyond the Cheddar Curtain? South of here? Flyin’ into O’Mare Airport?

Well, first off, you could just throw the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg’s address into your favorite electronic gadget and map it. The address is:

1800 East Golf Road
Schaumburg, Illinois, USA, 60173

You’ll think your GPS is lying a little, and it will be slightly confusing if you don’t know the mall area, because the address is on Golf, but there are a pair of access roads (McConnor Pkwy and Walter Payton Dr) you have to use to actually get to the hotel without mowing down grass in the median. You can SEE it from Golf, but you have to turn off Golf to actually park.

If you’re from up around Ponyville Ciderfest’s neck of the woods (coming in on 94 headed south), here’s what to do:
• Take 94E (Yes, there are tolls. Be nice to the booth ponies.)
• Continue on I-94 E to Maine. (Not Manehattan, just Maine) Take the IL-58 exit from I-294 S
• Keep right at the fork to continue on I-294 S, follow signs for Indiana – O’Hare

Alternately, if you’re coming from O’Mare International Airport or points south:
• Take I-90 West to Ill. 53 South (Schaumburg).
• Exit on Woodfield Rd.
• Turn left at first traffic signal.
• At the next signal, turn left onto Frontage Rd.
• Turn left on Golf Rd.
• Hyatt Regency Schaumburg will be two blocks on right.

If you’re coming from I-90 East
• Exit Ill. 53 South (Schaumburg). Exit on Woodfield Rd. Turn left at first traffic signal.
• At the next signal, turn left onto Frontage Rd.
• Turn left on Golf Rd.
• Our hotel will be two blocks on the right.

If you’re coming in another way, you’re probably lost or on the Dan Ryan. (90/94W thru downtown) We don’t recommend the latter, that way is the path of madness and downtown traffic jams. If you ARE on the Ryan and you make it out to us, you’re still welcome, but we will likely suspect that you’re a changeling.
• Follow I-90 W,
• Take the I-290 E exit toward the suburbs
• Keep left at the fork to continue on Exit 1B-1A
• Follow signs for Woodfield Rd / Golf Rd and merge onto McConnor Pkwy .2 mi
• Turn left onto E Woodfield Rd .1 mi
• Turn left onto E Frontage Rd .6 mi.
• Turn left onto Golf Rd .1 mi
• Slight right onto McConnor Pkwy 200 ft
• Turn left onto Walter Payton Dr, Spot the Hyatt and celebrate!
