Chicago Loop Hotel Is Simplifying the Logistics of Sporting Event Attendance

Rooks Corner at Marriott Chicago at Medical District/UIC Now Offers Free Event Parking and Free United Center Shuttle

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Oct 13, 2015) - As the NBA and NHL seasons have nearly arrived, West Loop Chicago restaurant and lounge, Rooks Corner, is now offering free event parking and free shuttle service to and from the United Center for Chicago Bulls and Chicago Blackhawk games as well as certain special events and concerts with bar validation.

Rooks Corner and Lounge, located inside of the west loop hotel, Marriott Chicago at Medical District/UIC on the corner of Ashland and Harrison, comes equipped with 4 plasma televisions, a full bar, nightly specials, happy hour offerings, and outdoor space.

Game day travel is made easy by this hotel near Chicago's United Center. Shuttle service will begin one hour before game time and will drop off at the Michael Jordan statue. Return service will begin 30 minutes after the game starts and continue until 1 hour after game ends.

The lot at Rooks Corner is sure to be a popular meeting space for Chicago sporting events this fall and winter. "We are recommending for fans to come early to take advantage of the free parking because of the limited of spots in our lot," said Camille Garcia, Director of Sales for Marriott Chicago at Medical District/UIC. "Come in for a quick bite and a cold beer before heading to the game. It's a great way to start off the night and you really can't beat free parking. When the weather cooperates, we have outdoor space with cornhole boards, too. It's like a tailgating experience in the West Loop."

Guest of Rooks Corner will love the complete game day experience that the Chicago restaurant can provide. Convenient travel, delicious food and drink, and an outlet for the competitive spirit, guarantee the perfect start for Bulls and Blackhawks games throughout the season.
