There is a cafeteria in the hotel right across the hall from the
conference room we we were in last time.

Exit the train, walk down the stairs, walk through the turnstiles and
out the glass doors. Turn to your left and follow the sidewalk until
you hit the sidewalk along River Road. Turn left and walk south along
River Road. You will have to cross both an exit and an entrance ramp
to the expressway; be careful. When you hit Bryn Mawr you will want to
cross River Road; the Sprint building is on the corner. As you walk
south you will pass the Sofitel, Embassy Suites and the Doubletree
before coming to the Crown Plaza. Once you enter the hotel turn to
your right to access the conference rooms. Last time there was a sign
straight ahead as you entered the hall that listed which room the
Python meeting was in.

The CTA station is at 5801 N. River Rd. and the hotel is at 5440 N.
You will end up walking about 3.5 blocks south which is just under
half a mile (Chicago blocks are still accurate in Rosemont from what
I've found).
