Travellers often find themselves stuck on a weather-related flight delay or cancellation at Chicago O’Hare Airport. If the last thing you want to do is curl up in an airport chair or lay out on the floor, you can first check if there are any cots available. The airport authority does bring out a limited supply of cots on nights when there are weather related cancellations. If none are available, or sleeping in the airport just isn’t your thing, you can head to one of several hotels near Chicago O’Hare that provide free shuttle service for guests.

Of course, if you prefer to sleep in the airport terminal, we’ve got you covered there as well! Visit our Chicago O’Hare Airport Guide to find out how to survive a layover or night inside the airport.

Cots at Chicago O’Hare Airport

When mass cancellations happen at Chicago O’Hare Airport, cots are available for stranded passengers who opt against getting a hotel room. Check with your airline to see if your flight is eligible. Cots seem to be set up around 9:30PM until 4:00AM, when staff wakes up the travellers in order to put away the cots. Old reviews mention that cots were available near Gate K1, but this is subject to change. (Note that cots are not available for travellers who simply choose to spend the night here, and they cannot be reserved in advance.)
