2014 MCACN



It may seem like November 22-23 is a long way off, but it will sneak up on us in a hurry! Many of our participants are well into full restorations of some truly outstanding cars as this is being written. We have several very notable Official Unveilings confirmed and last week we announced our Invitational and Special displays. This week we want to let you know, we have once again hammered out some great deals with some great perks for you at FOUR Rosemont hotels, all conveniently located and all really nice. As someone who travels quite a bit and does a lot of events, I know the importance of offering good accommodations! I can tell you that we work very hard to make sure we have the very best accommodations for you at the very best prices, and all of these hotels are geared up and offering additional perks for our participants and spectators.

The DoubleTree Hotel in Rosemont Illinois

DoubleTree O’Hare; our Official Headquarters and conveniently located directly across the street from the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. Many of you know, this has become the major hub and we pretty much take over the whole place. Nice comfortable rooms, a recently refreshed workout room, a big pool and hot-tub and they are home to several outstanding restaurants, including the famed Gibson’s Steak House. Single or double rooms for MCACN people are $109.00 per night, and they are also offering $10.00 daily parking in the attached parking structure behind the Embassy Suites. If you plan on staying here, book now as it is sure to be the first to sell out! Here is a direct link to book your rooms now;

The Embassy Suites Hotel in Rosemont Illinois

Embassy Suites- O’Hare; If you want a bit more room and a slightly quieter atmosphere, this is the place for you. Again, they have a nice restaurant, a beautiful pool and hot tub and a nice work-out room and they are directly across the street from the convention center. Special parking in the attached parking structure is $10.00 per day and they include an excellent full cooked-to-order breakfast, (here’s a tip; order up an omelet!) Daily Managers Reception too, with complimentary wine and cocktails along with hors d-oeuvres. Daily rate for MCACN participants' and spectators here is $129.00 per night.

The Crown Plaza Hotel in Rosemont Illinois

Crowne Plaza O’Hare; This one is the most affordable and again, located right across the street. The special MCACN rate is $99.00 per night and they are also offering $10.00 daily parking in their surrounding lot, which is large enough to handle your Duallie or other larger vehicle. In addition to the excellent pricing, they are throwing in a complimentary coupon for coffee from their “On the Fly” shop and also double priority points for club members.

The aLoft Hotel in Rosemont Illinois

The aLoft; This one has a LOT of personality and is one of the newest hotels in the area. Located directly across from the new 150+ store outlet mall, behind the Crowne Plaza. It is a short walk, (a couple blocks) but if you prefer, they will gladly run you right to the convention center with their 24 hour shuttle. The rate here is $112.00 per night and they include free internet access and $10.00 daily parking. To book your rooms at The aLoft, click here;

Staying at one of these hotels makes the whole weekend easier. Everything you could possibly want is within walking distance, including several famous steak houses, a wide variety of other restaurants, the awesome Rosemont Entertainment District with some great bars, the huge Muvico Theater, an ice skating rink and bowling alley and of course, the new Rosemont Outlet Mall, featuring all kinds of great shopping for everyone in the family. This area is VERY family friendly and there is also a Casino about a 1/2 mile up North River Road! Plan on spending some time in the area and be sure to bring the whole family.
