University of Chicago is hosting the LSA summer institute of linguistics during the conference period, so accommodation options are quite limited.
Subject line: Looking for a roommate
Email: email@example.com by June 15th (the earlier, the better)

Room rates are $149 PLUS a tax a night (for a double only), with free breakfast. Conference attendees can get a 25% discount from the daily rate ($189+tax night) under the name of ICKL when they make a reservation. We have 40 rooms to block. The reservations have to be made by June 19th. At the moment, the reservation with the group rate discount can be made by calling 1-773-324-3000 (toll free number: 1-800-237-4933).

Note 1: The rooms that we have reserved are newly renovated ones. There are other rooms in the same hotel that are not renovated. These rooms are cheaper, about $110+Tax, if you book through "booking.com" or "Interpark" (the Korean company).(But at the moment, the cheaper rooms appear to have been sold out.)
Note 2: See above, if you would like to share a room.
