Just had to put my two cents in in response to John's comment that the subway is dangerous. First, Joel was right--it would be virtually impossible to get downtown and back in the time Graziella has available. However, that subway line is no more dangerous than any subway line in any big city, and it is the best way to travel between O'Hare and downtown unless traveling with a lot of luggage.
One should always be aware of one's surroundings on public transportation or anywhere else, but the only time I probably would not ride the Blue line is between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. Even then, it would depend where I was getting on and off.
