O'Hare International Airport is located 18 miles northwest of downtown Chicago. It's core mission is to provide outstanding service and amenities to customers.
United terminal is not like the international but if you fly Lufthansa you will depart from there:(
It's improving by bringing in real Chicago culinary know-how to replace the terrible (bye Wolfgang). That being said, lack of free wifi and traveler layover options is a buzzkill.
Some craft beer (check out Berghoff Cafe), coffee (Starbucks seems to be in every terminal), and plenty of charging stations.
Long waits on Sunday ! They have three people trying to do security checks for 300 thousand people
Hate long lines for early flights!!! The worst, even when flying business
Get you TSA Pre-Check and everything changes. Special security lines with really helpful TSA staff.
Quick meal before a business flight!
Busy airport with frequent weather caused delays and cancellations.
Always expect flight delays. On time is the exception, not the rule.
Terminal 2 includes a Children's Museum exhibit and play area. Perfect for a long layover.
A security agent told me my fanny pack counted as a third carryon and made me get out of the line to put it in my bag. Then, I had to go to back of the line because I got out!
The free wifi isn't exactly free...
If you're riding Uber or Lyft, request early. Wait times are long. Like 15 mins.
Free WiFi is very slow, almost unbearable.
The international flights are at the Terminal 5 :)
I was expecting a bigger airport, but anyway, it's not small at all.
FireChat with nearby margaritas cocktail fans and new friends, no cellular data or wifi hotspot! Sweet. getFireChat.com
Be prepared to wait for ages at security. The neon-lined underground tunnel is kinda neat, though.
Spend a few bucks on a small Chicago mix popcorn from Garrett's. Oh yeah!
I waited in this airport for 7 hours at night, if you're the same as me, just go to Dunkin and have a donut or go to Starbucks, try to have fun, I know it is so boring after hour 3.. Lol
united club is nice, but to much walking in this airport.
How can they not offer free reliable wireless access? Even phone reception is poor in Terminal 2
Take the Blue line train to Union Station to avoid taking taxis.
Couldn't connect to wireless. Didn't even get phone signal :( frustrating experience
If you get stuck here, take a day to see the city. Whatever you do, don't stay in a hotel in Glenview. Stick to Rosemont hotels or something on the Blue Line.
Bring back the comfort dogs for all the stranded passengers.
O'Hare is one of the more confusing and crowded airports but at least they decorate well for the holidays.
Nothing on the McDonald's dollar menu costs a dollar...
Keep an eye out for banks of seats with built in charging stations. There aren't many and they're not labeled but in terminal 3 (K gates) they're across the aisle from the regular seating areas.
Always wear clean underwear when you're traveling.
This place seriously knows how to decorate for the holiday season.

Go - with layover of 4+hours Go for the City Predictability + price CTA BLUE LINE - 10 USD day pass. 40 min to CLARK transfer to THELOOP for shopping + Millenium Park Runs every 10 mins most times.
Best place for breakfast in Terminal 1, Concourse C is Billy Goat Tavern in foodcourt. Real eggs, bacon, etc.
Absolutely the worst major hub airport. Difficult to get to/from, 30 minute taxi to the gate, awful food/services selections. This airport needs to be demolished and rebuilt from scratch.
Concourses E and F are awful - low ceilings, greasy unappetising looking food options and feels like it was made out of spare shipping containers or something. Why are almost all US airports so bad?
Don't fly Virgin America out of this airport. If you miss you flight or get bumped, there are not many alternate flights you can take.
One of my mist favorite ! Great architecture and very friendly atmosphere and airport staff !
Nice airport. Bit dated, but a great place to transit through. The food at American Dog was pretty good!
Calm. Pretty. Artsy.
Beautiful and large airport! Definitely worth taking a few shots!
Eat at Wicker Park in Terminal 2. Fab Sushi, great saki.
What a busy airport!
Thr United terminal is nice. If you want Uber, oh well. Your only choice is the Uber Black service. Don't be fooled that Uber Taxi might be cheaper. It's just a taxi and is iverpriced from the airport
One of the best airport I've been to. I was in there a few times, sometimes it was my final destination sometimes I was only connecting, but every time I had a pleasant time there.
It's just the usual here at ORD
I like the access to wifi and the charging stations. It compensates for the construction inside the terminal.
The toilets here are AMAZING!!
Now uber is allowed to pick up at O'Hare airport! Fabulous news, October 2015
These 20 min tarmac taxi rides are ridic.. Like miles from the terminal..
