Which airport should I use?

There are two primary airports serving the Chesterton area.  First is Chicago Midway airport.  Midway is a smaller airport with onsite car rentals and is fairly easy to navigate.  The drive from Midway to our office is approximately 45 minutes.

The second option is Chicago O’Hare airport.  This is a larger international hub.  O’Hare sits outside of the city limits but the drive time to our office is approximately 1 ½ hours (depending on time of  day of course).  You will travel interstates around the city to the toll roads.

Once you have arrived you may take the toll road to the Chesterton office or set you GPS to not use the toll road.  There is a major highway that runs parallel to the toll road so either is easy to navigate.


Where should I stay?

The most convenient and only major branded hotel in the area is the Hilton Garden Inn.  Tell the hotel that you are visiting Starin and you should be able to get a room for $101 per night.  It is advisable to check online as well as sometime the online site provides even better rates. There are several restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.

A second option is the Best Western Indian Oak.  Their rates are usually less than $100 per night and they have plenty of restaurants close by.

Weather –  Be Prepared

Chesterton sits just off of Lake Michigan.  This means that in the winter the weather can be very unpredictable.  Snow is likely along with frigid wind chills.  During summer and spring the weather is very pleasant providing opportunities to enjoy Lake Michigan and it’s surrounding parks.  Pack accordingly and keep an eye on your flights in case of weather delays.
