If spaces are available, SpotHero can be used for the Ogden Plaza Garage right across the street from the Sheraton via the LOWER level of East North Water Street. The second level of that garage has a walkway leading to the Sheraton's lobby level.

The Sheraton also offers self-parking ($24/day) and valet parking ($37 for 2-6 hours). The entrance for Sheraton parking is on the upper level of East North Water Street (accessible via Columbus Drive).
Ride Sharing, Taxis, and CTA Mass Transit
Instead of using the Sheraton's actual address, map to 431 N. Columbus Dr., which will put you a few steps away from the Sheraton's main entrance on UPPER East North Water Drive. This is suggested since some mapping apps direct drivers to the lower level of that street where construction traffic and underground sidewalk access can be tricky.
