First time at O'Hare. great experience and very beautiful! As i have been in the terminal 3 only. It's super beautiful!! Great experience and staff are very helpful. If you are here for connection flight and you have a time. You can go out and come back again. And yes you have to do security check again. But its nice 😊
Relatively clean and modern airport, if a bit sprawling. Plenty of quick food in terminals 1,2,&3 as well as a small amount of sit down dining. Food options are limited in but available in term. 5. Plenty of restrooms throughout the airport. Gate lounge seating is adequate. I've never had any trouble here.
being one of the busiest airports in the world has some disadvantages. I think depending upon which terminal you are flying into or out of greatly determines your satisfaction with this place. I fly United often and those terminals have been upgraded with great food and beverage options along with multiple United club locations. And you always get to walk through the groovy neon people moving sidewalk.
The newly added tram to the Rent-A-Car parking destinations lot is nice in the winter as you don’t have to go outside to catch the train.
Enjoyed my layover sat O’Hare international airport. Plenty of options for eating and drinking. Staff is friendly. Facilities are neat and tidy. Very happening place. You can get bored.
This is what they offer (as per their website):
“While you are passing through O'Hare, we offer a number of services and amenities to ease your travels. Our USO locations offer a relaxing and comfortable space for active military personnel and their families.
The Hilton O'Hare is an on-site hotel providing accommodations for travelers who require an extended stay, or are looking for a place to rest in between flights. There is also various airport art throughout the terminals.
We have worked extremely hard to ensure our airport is fully accessible to passengers with disabilities and special needs. Our Accessibility Guide will point you in all the right directions and help you navigate through our airport.
We are happy you're here!”
This airport is straight out of the 1990s. Some may see that as dated, others (like us) see that as cool!
The architecture is throughout is really interesting and unique. All of the concourses & terminals have some sort of unique architectural element to them. The airport is also very well lit throughout.
Both underground tunnels are really cool as well--very colorful.
Airport is pretty clean, staff are friendly.
O'Hara is a very busy airport but things tend to flow smoothly. There are good places to purchase gifts, good, drink, even the famous Garrett's Popcorn has a shop there. The people moving through O'Hare seem to know where they're going which makes it all work. The restrooms are clean actually, the whole airport seemed to be clean. It's a nice airport, huge so wear comfortable shoes as you may need to do a little walking. O'Hare does have transportation to get you from one location to another if needed.
Huge airport. Flight connected right away so didn't get to spend much time. Although I have passed thorough before. I would like to see more plant-based, vegan options. To much fast food which I guess is typical. It would be cool if they had a map on screens with all.the food choices. I thought the order and Go feature on American airlines was cool though.
Very few restaurants or shops open for food or drink.
