Luckily for those in Downtown Chicago wanting to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, Reaction has partnered with a number of hotels in Rosemont with prices starting as low at $129 a night, plus free shuttle services going to and from the venue for those who book rooms there. However, if you insist on traveling from the city, we teamed up with FEST DRIVE who will have shuttles running continuously throughout the day starting at 4:30pm until 2am.  Buses will depart from Jaks Tap (901 E. Jackson), which is centrally located in the West Loop, a 6 minute walk from Union Station, and right off the Blue line at the UIC/Halsted stop.  Each shuttle pass include round trips, and seats are limited, so book your passes now before it’s too late.  For more details on hotels and travel options, click here.
