Sitter Services

For your convenience, we have collected information on a few licensed sitter agencies in Chicago, with fully background-checked sitters who will come to your hotel room to provide childcare at competitive rates. Please be aware that Monday, May 27, is Memorial Day, a U.S. holiday, which could result in increased prices. It is recommended to confirm rates before booking services.


American Childcare rates are $35 per hour, per family, with a four-hour minimum. Sitter fees are paid directly to the sitter by cash or with a credit card on file at the end of service.


Chicago Super Sitters hotel placement rates start at $50 for more than three days’ notice, $75 for less than 48 hours’ notice, and $100 for less than 24 hours’ notice, paid upon confirmation. The sitter hourly rate is separate and is paid directly to the sitter at the end of service. Rates are $16 an hour for one or two children and $18 an hour for three or four children.


Mother’s Helpers requires a one-time fee of $30, paid by credit card to the agency. The sitter rate begins at $14 per hour for one child, and goes up by $1 per hour for each additional child. Parents are expected to cover the cost of parking for the sitter as well. Sitter fees are paid directly to the sitter by cash or check at the time of service.
