Questions about The Hilton Chicago
We are pround to announce that LeakyCon will take place at the famous Chicago landmark, the Hilton Chicago, overlooking Grant Park and Lake Michigan. The Harry Potter community gathered at this hotel together in August of 2008, and we’re doing it again four years later!
Is there a discounted rate?
Yes, We have secured an excellent discounted rate for attendees of LeakyCon, which extends from August 6 through August 15. For one- or two-person occupancy, the rooms are $179/night; for three people, $199/night, and for four, $229. These rates are specially guaranteed by the hotel to be the lowest available for each occupancy that week – and they always go FAST, so be sure to make your reservation as soon as possible.

No, while many conference attendees chose to stay at the Hilton for convenience it is not required.
Do you have discounted rates at other hotels?
At this time we do not have any discounted rates at other hotels. If and when our current block of rooms fill we will look at the possibility of partnering with other hotels to offer you additional options.
