Plane spotting at ORD Airport

Hi im am planning a trip to ORD to do some plane spotting. I know there are websites that have good locations i was seeing if anyone had some special ones i should check out? Also i’m going to be staying overnight so looking for a hotel with good spotting if possible if anyone has anything. thank you!!.

Will you be taking your PiAware along. I have one made up just for traveling.

ok… I’m a little confused by your response.

I live about 5 miles from my local airport and in town. I like to track smaller aircraft so for best results I take a portable PiAware rig with me to the airport. I use my phone as a hotspot and get instant local tracking. It’s similar to having an ADS-B In receiver in your aircraft but FlightAware provides a lot more information.
