ORD Limo recommendations?

I'm going to Chicago for a conference with a colleague at the end on April.
We need receipts for travel claims. Uber isn't an option.

I'm looking for a reliable limo service to pick us up and return us to the airport.
any recommendations?

Out of curiosity, why isn't Uber an option? Use Uber Black, you'll get "car service" level vehicles and professional drivers, and a receipt...

Moving the thread to the Chicago forum since Uber is not an option for the OP.

My parents always used Amm's Limo when I was a kid.

I have used American Coach Limo once or twice.

Both are reputable and provide nice service and nice cars.

O'Hare-Midway has also been around for years, very reliable.

Commonweath and Crown are two more reliable options.

Does Uber's different levels not fit your needs?

I've found car services in Chicago to be overpriced.

I find Uber -- at least Uberpool -- to be better value than the alternatives.

If you find car services in Chicago to be overpriced, then forget Uber Black altogether.

For airport rides, I usually use American Coach Limousine. They're not the newest of the new cars, nor are the drivers the best dressed compared to other car services you'll pay 2x the price for, but if all you want is a reliable and comfortable ride in an MKT or similar, they're typically just fine. Make sure you reserve in advance. Click the Online Deal tab to save $5. I always book one ways instead of round trips, as then you can save $5 on each.

For a trip from ORD to Highland Park, Uber Black is going to run $90-100, while American Coach Limousine is $60 flat rate.
