What's the best/cheapest way to get three people from a hotel in Lombard, Illinois to O'hare on a Tuesday afternoon?

We'll be at the Stay Inn
and for most of our stay, we'll be shuttled around by other family members but by the time we need to get back to the airport, they'll all have gone home with their cars. After having lived in the western suburbs for 20+ years but gone for the last 20 I have no clue what airport transportation options are out there. It'll be me, my husband and our young daughter. Our flight is at about 2pm and though we won't have huge amounts of luggage, we'll have enough that I don't want to cart it around all morning, otherwise I'd probably take the train downtown for the morning and then the blue line to O'hare.
Alternatively, if you can suggest something really awesome to do within walking distance of the hotel that would be great, too. Having spent the bulk of my formative years at Yorktown Shopping Center, I'm not sure I can stomach a whole morning at the mall. (Holy crap, when did I-88 become the Ronald Reagan Memorial Tollway?)
