I can't really speak to Chicago on a personal level regarding mobility accessibility, but there's a state-funded accessible travel guide, which is at least a good sign. (As we all know too well, it may be not quite as accessible as it seems.)

While public transit is reliable, the city itself is pretty spread out, even in the downtown area. If you go, I would plan to spend a bit extra for a centrally-located hotel, at the very least. However, there are loads of interesting things to see and do there, geekily speaking and non-geekily speaking, particularly the museum-y places (Art Institute, Field Museum, Museum of Science and Industry, Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium...).

While I've never been, Think Galacticon is in Chicago in July, and I've heard some good things about it. They focus on radical/leftist politics and speculative fiction and have accessibility policies, as their concept and ideals are based off WisCon. There are other more general SF cons in Chicago, but I haven't heard anything about them, I fear.
