Hotel Block

(Updated January 2023)

Our host hotel for MIR27 will be The DoubleTree by Hilton in Skokie, Illinois. 
Address: 9599 Skokie Blvd, Skokie, IL 60077

While our initial blocks of rooms have sold out, there are still rooms available at the host hotel. Attendees can reserve rooms at the Doubletree by Hilton via general public reservation on the hotel website or by calling the hotel reservation line.  Prices for the remaining rooms at the hotel will vary depending on the availability, occupancy, and size of rooms remaining on the property.  When making your reservations, be sure to indicate that you are with “Mr. International Rubber” so that the hotel can count you with our group. 

Reserve at the DoubleTree by Hilton via one of the following options:
Website: Reserve via the web
Direct: +1 847-679-7000
Toll-free:  +1-855-610-8733

Our secondary hotel will be the Hampton Inn & Suites North Shore / Skokie.
Address: 5201 Old Orchard Rd, Skokie, IL 60077
(Located just 1.4 miles away from the DoubleTree by Hilton.) 

A courtesy block of rooms has been established at the Hampton Inn and Suites for an initial rate of $199/night.
While this hotel is a short distance from MIR27 events, the reduced rate may be appealing to more cost conscious attendees.

After this initial year we will have a much better idea of how many rooms we can expect to reserve, will have established an initial history of the number of rooms reserved, and can plan to make a larger availability of rooms on offer from the outset of our reservation process. We thank you for your understanding as we work through this new process for our organization.
