Getting to Chicago on Blue Line CTA From Woodfield Mall

Jump to last reply

I have looked at this post for ideas and am still a bit confused:

http://www.fodors.com/forums/threadselect.jsp?fid=1&tid=34509841

A group of us (5 or 6 women) will be traveling from Michigan to Chicago for a 3-day weekend to kick off Christmas shopping November 5-7.

Most of the women live in a very small town far from any malls, so this type of annual trip gives them mall access to do some good Christmas shopping.

We plan to head to Woodfield Mall and arrive Friday afternoon, shopping there for the rest of that day.

Friday and Saturday nights we are staying at the Westin Michigan Ave. in Chicago.

So, I think it makes sense to drive to the blue line CTA and ride into the city, changing lines within the loop to the red line to get us near our hotel. We will be traveling with minimal luggage, though purchases made in Chicago will have to be lugged back out on Sunday morning.

In order to get to the hotel does it make sense to drive to the Cumberland stop and park there? Can anyone give specific directions from Woodfield Mall to this stop? I'd rather not drive into the city, and I'd rather not pay for two nights of parking for what may end up being two cars.

Thanks! :)
