Experience Luxury Accommodations Near McCormick Place
As 2018 comes to a close, an exciting list of events are being unveiled at McCormick Place. Every year Chicago hosts a diverse amount of mega-conferences, and 2019 is no exception.

Boasting 2.6 million square feet of exhibition space and assembly seating for 18,000, it’s no surprise that this sprawling convention center hosts some of the most epic events in the country.
Now that streams of high-end visitors are attending conferences in Chicago, companies are scrambling to find better accommodation options. While traditional hotels work for corporations on a budget, most innovative companies choose to stay on private yachts. This trend is fueled by the many advantages of spending the night at Burnham Harbor. On top of being a breathtaking setting, this strategic location is only one mile away from McCormick Place. For companies who are tired of staying in overpriced hotels and still having to sit in traffic, private yachts are their salvation.
At Adeline’s Sea Moose, we feel obligated to give clients a much needed break from mediocrity. Visiting a conference should never be dull, which is why we offer multiple sleep aboard options. Our 68 ft. private yacht is docked in a prime position at Burnham Harbor, which provides easy access to McCormick Place.
