We have spent quite a bit of time traveling lately, spreading the word about the upcoming Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show, November 23-24. One thing that I have noticed is that with many larger events, it seems that some of the local hotels see an opportunity to inflate their rates to levels that can be as much as twice their normal rates. While I can understand supply and demand, I also feel that many are missing the boat, by attempting to get ALL of the pie instead of realizing that the first step is to get you into the community. With that being said, I am pleased to announce the attitude in Rosemont is very different. Rosemont is indeed community like no other, because they truly want you to come to the area to see all they have to offer, and let’s face spend some of your hard earned cash! Last year we booked well over 1,000 room nights at our Host Hotels, and we have not just one, not even two, but FOUR outstanding hotels that are all vying to earn your business, with special reduced rates and special perks offered exclusively for MCACN participants AND all of our spectators. Today I would like to explain to you the differences of these hotels, as each really has a different personality.


Primary Host Hotel; The DoubleTree-O’Hare

MCACN Primary Host Hotel Doubletree O'Hare

Since our inception in 2009, the DoubleTree O’Hare has served as our home base. The crew here “get it” and understand what we are all about. Bottom line; this becomes party central for MCACN! We kick things off here with a Welcome Reception Friday night. Of course, that is after you check in and get your warm cookies! This is also where Gibson’s Steak House is located, (right off the main lobby) and if you didn’t already know, Gibson’s is a must do while you are in town. Rub elbows with the “movers and shakers” while enjoying a 5 Star meal. Best of all is our rate; just $102 per night, and they also offer our guests $8 daily self parking in the adjoining parking structure. This hotel is literally right across the street from the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, so once you are settled in, you can enjoy the show, the hotel and the entire Rosemont Entertainment District, all within walking distance. The DoubleTree O’Hare also has a really cool Bowtie shaped swimming pool, a nice hot tub and a newly updated workout area. Here is a direct link to the DoubleTree O’Hare MCACN guest booking link;  Please note; even though we pretty much take over the entire hotel, this one sells out well in advance!

Host Hotel #2; The Embassy Suites-O’Hare

Embassy Suites Official MCACN Host Hotel Group

This one is a favorite of many of our participants. Being an all-suite hotel, it is perfect for families and those who travel together. You get a full bedroom with a King or two doubles with an adjoining living room with a fold-out couch/bed. It also has a complimentary full made to order breakfast (with great omelets!) and the daily complimentary Managers Cocktail Reception. This hotel is also located directly across the street, has a nice pool, hot tub and workout area and they offer the $8 daily self parking in the attached parking structure. The rate is $119 per night and here is the direct link to our MCACN booking page;



Host Hotel #3; The Crowne Plaza

Crowne Plaza O' Hare MCACN Host Hotel Group

The Crowne Plaza- O’Hare is on the corner of North River and Balmoral, right across from the convention center. This hotel has a great big flat parking lot right behind the hotel, so they can accommodate your rig. They will give you complimentary coffee in their “On the Fly” Café and they offer the lowest rate of the four at $92 per night. They have a beautiful pool and a fitness room for your use. Parking in their no height restriction lot is $10 daily for our participants and spectators. Here is a direct link to book your room at the Crowne Plaza at the special  MCACN rates.


Host Hotel #4; The aLoft

aLoft Hotel Official MCACN Host Hotel Group

The aLoft is a unique experience and unlike the others, (check out the pictures!). One of the newest hotels in the area, it has a neat boutique feel. Located off of Balmoral (across from our staging lot behind the Akoo Theater), they offer door to door shuttle service for our participants and spectators and complimentary internet access. Reports from our participants say this place is just plain cool! The MCACN rate here is $112 per night and they offer $10 daily parking. Here is the direct link to book your room at the aLoft; Booking Link


Last year we booked over 1,000 room nights at these four hotels, so reserve your rooms now to make sure you get exactly what you want. Any of these hotels put you right into the middle of the action and all are committed to making your stay in Rosemont an unforgettable experience.
And there’s more; Opening August 1 is the brand spankin’ new Fashion Outlet Mall. If you were at our show last year, you are going to flip when you see the MB Financial Park at Rosemont and what they have done. More things to do and more things to see, with something for every member of the family, young or old. And yes...we meant that the Fashion Outlet Mall is opening THIS August 1, meaning they will be ready for us!
So there you have it...the MCACN team and the Rosemont community are geared up and excited to host you, your family and friends for the upcoming Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show. With the brand new 150+ store Rosemont Fashion Outlet Mall, Toby Keith’s This Bar and Grill, the Muvico Theater, Zanies Comedy Club, the Hofbrauhaus and much more, all within walking distance, you can plan the entire week around our show, and never have to drive!
BIG things are coming together again for the MCACN show. No matter what brand you prefer, we will have something that quite simply will blow you away. We truly appreciate your continued support and as always, we ask you to please help us spread the word by telling your friends, associates and anyone else to plan on joining us for our 5th Anniversary show, November 23-24, 2013. We welcome your feedback and suggestions, as this show is for YOU.
With Sincere Appreciation!
