Please do not park in the lot behind the CPA's office next door, they will have you towed!
Ride-sharing is strongly suggested.

These are our FAVORITE hotels in the area and we recommend them without hesitation: They are located right next door to each other. We put up our instructors here and have never had a single complaint, only rave reviews about the friendly, helpful staff, nice, clean facility, and exceptional hot breakfast. They are located in a safe area, conveniently close to restaurants, entertainment and shopping, right off of I-72, near I-55, and they LOVE law enforcement! They are just 6 miles (15 minutes) from our training center, up S. MacArthur Blvd., to S. Grand Ave., to Spring St. Please tell them you are attending a LETAC class when you make your reservation, and remember to ask for the government rate.

For your comfort, at the LETAC Training Center, we provide coffee and cookies until lunch time each day.  We also have a soda machine, snack machine, and water fountains in the break area.  (The machines don't take anything larger than a $1 bill and we don't keep a supply of change, so please come prepared if you wish to use the machines.)  We have a refrigerator, microwave, and toaster if you would like to bring your lunch and eat on site instead of going out. 
We have Wifi you can use on site as well - just look in the break area and training room for the signs displaying SSID and password.
