I-57 to I-355 to Butterfield, IMO

Yes. (However, please note that I-57 and I-355 do not directly connect. You'll need to jog across on I-80 WESTBOUND.

If you run it on Google Maps, and then pull the route to make the I-80 to I-355 loop (rather than the I-294 to I-88 loop), it'll still try to get you to get onto I-88 briefly to exit onto Highland. Don't - I-88 is under pretty heavy construction (hence the bypass suggestion on the website). 355 will have an exit onto Butterfield Rd.

Once you're on Butterfield, go East. You have two choices - Butterfield forms the southern perimeter of the mall that the hotel is on the northern outlot of. You can either go up Highland (the eastern perimeter) and across on 22nd St, or go past Highland on Butterfield, turn left into the mall, and go along the mall perimeter. Look at the zoomed-in map to figure out a) which sounds better and b) what it'll look like.

Right..I knew as I was typing it in I was missing a road....

I tend to take US-52 across from Kankakee to Joliet...I-80 is kind of just "there" to me.

For some reason, I had the notion that the hotel was a long way east of 355 (so that was a long detour). With another look at the map, that makes sense.

Oh, yes. Take I-355 if you have a choice (and you do!).
