5 / 5

Easy to book online at short notice, and a good price. The location was easy to find, very central and the service in the shop was lovely. Luggage was kept safe and it all felt completely secure so I’d definitely use Stasher again.

Alternative luggage storage options in Chicago

Although Stasher is the most convenient service available in Chicago, there are indeed other luggage storage options:

Chicago Union Train Station

While self-service lockers are less and less common nowadays due to safety regulations, travelers who have an Amtrak ticket are entitled to use their luggage storage facilities. Bear in mind, it’s priced at $10 for 24 hours per bag, quite steep if you ask us!

Alternatively, if you don’t hold a ticket, you might still be able to store your luggage at the station, but the price gets quite extortionate at $20 for 24 hours per bag.

Museum and Art Galleries Luggage Storage

Some museums and art galleries such as the Art Institute of Chicago, the Adler Planetarium and Astronomy Museum, the Museum of Science and Industry etc., have a checkroom service for visitors. Bear in mind that space is limited and they fill up quite quickly.
