Transportation from Schaumburg to downtown Chicago

I am planning to attend a seminar in Schaumburg for a week and intend to stay at the Hilton Garden Inn.

I have the whole Friday free so to see the sights quickly in Chicago before catching my flight from Ohare on Saturday noon.

I was just wondering if I should stay put in Schaumburg or stay somewhere in downtown Chicago.

Staying around Ohare seems to be also a good option.

I was just wondering what the transportation options are from Schaumburg (Hilton Garden Inn) to downtown Chicago especially if I am carrying one large suitcase.

www.metrarail.com will get you from Schaumburg to downtown. Moving from Schaumburg to O'hare for one night does not make sense. Stay downtown for your last night. There's a trip planner function at www.transitchicago.com

That hotel is close to the Woodfield Mall area. You would probably be closer to the Arlington Park Metra station (Union Pacific NW Line) than to the station in Schaumburg. If you want to stay out late at night, I would recommend staying downtown as the Metra doesn't run after midnight (12:30)
