I really wanted to check out Chinatown, as I went to Chinatown San Francisco and had a great time and food. This Chinatown was dinghy, dirty, and not worth seeing at all. Food was just ok. Don't bother going.

Chinatown in Chicago is a wonderful place from shopping and restaurants to a Buddhist temple. In the summer you can also visit the beautiful Tom Pong Park. Easy access via car or train. A must visit

Great food and shops to visit in this great area that makes up the Chicagoland landscape. Parking sometimes an issue.

My wife and I were amazed at the restaurant quality. First time for my wife to eat Dim Sum. All the favorites I remember from Houston were available. Amazing stores, architecture and atmosphere. Bought cool fans, trinkets and knickknacks.

Chinatown
Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures

Should be ok, it’s not the greatest area of town. I’d use the iPhone maps in pedestrian mode and find a hotel off one of the train routes that stops close to your conference and is in a better part of town. You’ll have... More
