Chicago Skyline

Hotel and Travel


As one of America’s biggest, most-cultured, and hardiest destinations, a stay in the Windy City won’t fail to blow you away. Creative green spaces sing with laughter and chatter - below the soaring heights of downtown’s skyscrapers - while quirky artworks, historic landmarks, and vibrant outdoor spaces all contribute to the city’s unique ambience.

Booking a Room

Planning your trip to Chicago has never been easier. Through our official housing partner, onPeak, we offer reduced hotel rates at a range of hotels, from boutique properties to global chains – giving you plenty of options and rates so you can choose the hotel that will allow your team to take advantage of Chicago’s diverse and thriving restaurants, entertainment and more.

To contact Onpeak with questions about your existing reservation or any housing assistance, please call 866-825-6085.

Note: onPeak is the only official housing company associated with United Fresh 2017, FreshTEC and FreshMKT. While other hotel resellers may contact you offering housing for your trip, they are not endorsed by or affiliated with the show and entering into financial agreements with such companies can have costly consequences.

Shuttle Bus Service to/from McCormick Place

Complimentary shuttle bus service will be provided for United Fresh 2017, FreshTEC and FreshMKT attendees from official convention hotels. Each hotel will have a shuttle schedule in the hotel lobby.
