HOST HOTELS GEARED UP AND
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR MCACN V 2013
It may be hard to think about November, since it seems like we just made it
through the holidays, but....
The 5th Anniversary Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals will be upon us before
we know it! Sure...there will be some more snow and cold ahead for many of
us, then hopefully a nice long, warm and sunny summer, but you really can’t
be too early to make plans for the 5th Anniversary of the world’s largest
all indoor specialty show devoted to Muscle Cars, Dealer-built Supercars and
Corvettes! With all of the outstanding national magazine coverage we have
been getting, the response this year has been better than ever.
HOTELS ARE READY FOR US;
Last year we filled an incredible amount of rooms at four area hotels. We
pretty much took over the entire city of Rosemont, so this year, we have
worked hard and have secured some great deals for you to make sure we can
keep the party going on right in the neighborhood.
Our Official Headquarters and Host Hotel is the
DoubleTree O’Hare. Those who
have stayed there before know this is MCACN party central. We will again
have our Friday night kick-off party here, so book your room NOW if you want
to be in the middle of the action. Our rate is $102.00 per night with a
2-day minimum stay, and in addition to the party, they will also have $8.00
daily parking available for MCACN DoubleTree guests, in the attached Embassy
Suites parking garage. This hotel also has the cool bowtie-shaped pool, a
nice hot tub and newly renovated workout room. Located directly across the
street from the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. Call 847-292-9100.
Embassy Suites-O’Hare; This one is all suites and a bit quieter, and you get
cooked to order daily breakfast along with their cool Managers Reception

guests an $8 daily parking rate. Nice pool, hot tub and workout room too and
directly across the street. Call 847-678-4000.

the street. They have a nice big and flat parking lot right behind the hotel
and a MCACN guest parking rate of $10 per day. The rate here for MCACN
participants and spectators is $92.00, and again, located across the street
from the Convention Center on the corner of N. River Road and Balmoral. Call
