Step 4: Tip your Driver
The Lombard Metra station is technically outside of their normal 3 mile radius. The hotel really likes us, so they are doing us a favor by (literally) going the extra distance for us. Please make sure to tip the shuttle bus driver a couple bucks to let them know we appreciate the extra effort.
How do I get home?
At any point during the weekend, stop by the concierge counter near the front of the lobby. They will let you know how far in advance you will need to reserve the shuttle to take you back to the Lombard Metra Train Station. It’s usually only 15-30 minutes ahead of time, but it may be longer on Sunday when everyone is leaving.
