We need to take the train from the ORD to the Homewood Suites, located at 40 East Grand Avenue. From what I can tell, Grand (Red Line) is the most convenient subway station.
I've attempted to use the trip planner at CTA. The routing takes me to a subway stop, then walking 11 minutes to the hotel. Another planner directs me to the Monroe Station, then transferring from Blue Line to Red Line.
Here's what I need: Does the Monroe Station serve both Red and Blue lines? If so, what is the connection like between the two lines?
