I have a long layover, about 16 hrs, I really don't want to pay for a hotel, does anybody know if you can just stay in the waiting area, along w/ a good book and an Ipod? Seattle's Amtrak station closes at night, but Chicago being a bigger city with far more trains may not. Does anybody know? Thanks.

Edit: one reason why I don't want to hotel it is because I only found one place nearby in my price range, I just don't wanna mess around with it and I have no desire to sightsee.

Try this place:

HI - Chicago :: Hostel to Reserve in the United States


In general, the place closes up at night.
