A little bit about the hotel.  There are two buildings.  The tower-type building is the Hospitality Inn building.  The Roadway Inn building is located to the north (about 200 feet away).  This is where the show events will be conducted and where our block of rooms are located.  This building is three stories and has an elevator.  The show will take place on the lower level.  The building is equipped with a small pool.  A free continental breakfast is served in the Roadway Inn lobby.

The hotel has a van shuttle for airport service, about a ten minute ride.  It is also available to shuttle people to restaurants in the immediate area.

You can't book this online, but the toll free number is above.  The hotel reserved room rate is good for September 30th through October 4th.  All rooms need to be booked prior to the show to get the reduced rate.  Be sure to make your reservation as soon as possible to assure room availability.  Be sure to ask for the Hedgehog Show Block.

Driving Instructions

Driving in from the West
You'll be traveling on I-94 eastbound. Take the 894 South exit (will be a right lane ramp - will also see a sign for Chicago). (894 has a second name, Highway 45, you may see 45 signs as well). You'll be heading south. About 3-4 miles 894 will swing to the left (the 2 left lanes will make this swing - - stay in the "right" left lane, not the "left" left lane). You'll now be heading east. Exit at 27th Street (right ramp). At the top of the ramp turn left, cross over the freeway, our hotel is immediately on the right (The Roadway Inn & Suites is at 4400 S. 27th Street, Milwaukee WI 53221, 414-817-5004).

Driving in from the North
You'll be traveling on Highway 45 southbound. You'll stay on 45 (i.e., you'll just keep going straight) - - it will merge with 894 at one point. About 3-4 miles 894 will swing to the left (the 2 left lanes will make this swing - - stay in the "right" left lane, not the "left" left lane). You'll now be heading east. Exit at 27th Street. At the top of the ramp turn left, cross over the freeway, our hotel is immediately on the right (The Roadway Inn & Suites is at 4400 S. 27th Street, Milwaukee WI 53221, 414-817-5004).

Driving in from the South
Youíll be traveling on I-94 northbound. Take 894 west exit (will be a left lane exit, actually the two most left lanes swing this way, stay in the "right" left lane, not the "left" left lane). (894 here as a second name, Highway 43, you may see 43 signs as well).
You'll have to deal with some merging traffic, you need to get over to the right immediately - - 27 Street is the first exit, only 1/2 mile after merge. At the top of the ramp turn right, our hotel is right there. (The Roadway Inn & Suites is at 4400 S. 27th Street, Milwaukee WI 53221, 414-817-5004).

Driving in from the Southwest
Iowa folks, you probably will be on Highway 43 northbound, keep on this; it will merge with 894 and swing east. Exit at 27th Street. At the top of the ramp turn left, cross over the freeway, our hotel is immediately on the right (The Roadway Inn & Suites is at 4400 S. 27th Street, Milwaukee WI 53221, 414-817-5004).
