There's no direct shuttles, and bus service is very limited, especially on the weekend. You can be creative (and Google Maps has all the transit services mapped out), but you know, the hotel is full of fans who are attending the same show. Ask for a ride? Split a cab?
Just time your airport trips so they coincide with other fans needing to get to the hotel and airport. It sounds like there's probably 20 people in the same predicament as you at that same hotel to split cab fare with.

I've been to the last few tapings, riding in with a friend from Nebraska. Alas, this time he is not able to attend... which I found out today. I've already secured a flight (at rates which would be considered larceny in any sane society), and am willing to man up and get robbed by cabbies in order to get to the Eagles' Club.
However, I am keen to get to the after parties as well. I usually stay at the Hillside Best Western, but this is probably a bit out of the way for convenience. So: if anybody who could squeeze me into their vehicle is staying at a hotel with vacancies remaining, I would sure like a 'heads up'. I can offer, of course, money for gas; and I do have the extra front row ticket which I bought for the friend who can't come.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Solutions? Let's have 'em!
Well, I've settled on the Write Inn in Oak Park. It seems relatively close to Berwyn (mind you, close seems to be very relative in Chicago...), so I'm surprised I've not seen it mentioned here before.
