*2023 Sneak Peek
Official Host Hotels Confirmed for MCACN 2023
We pride ourselves in producing a car show unlike any other. Of course, our primary focus in itself is unique, since we are devoted to hosting the absolute finest and rarest examples of factory stock American Muscle and the rarest Corvettes, with an emphasis on the 60's and 70's. Of course, we always have a wide variety of other, and often unexpected cars, like the one you see above that is joining us this year.
We are pleased to return to our home of Rosemont, Illinois and the beautiful Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. We will fill nearly 400,000 square feet of all indoor exhibit space with well over 500 cars that will join us from across the country and several provinces of Canada. We have even had the honor of having participants join us from Australia and spectators from South Africa, England, Japan and well...you get the idea! While I could go on and on, if you are thinking about joining us for the first time, please talk to those who have, as they (you!) are our best advertising. Of course, the national media also helps us get the word out! THANKS to all of you who help us spread the word and please continue to do so, as our show is dependent upon spectator attendance to be viable.
We work hard to make sure your overall MCACN experience is positive. This starts with our awesome staff. Many of our key staff members started out as participants, and nearly all are real car people. The MCACN team is made up of eight partners that all live and breathe all things on wheels. (More on that in the coming weeks). We have shown, raced, driven and worked on our cars and we love every minute of it. There is no doubt that you can feel our passion for what we do.
With that being said, one thing we work hard on is securing accommodations, not only for participants but also for our all important spectators. We have SEVEN Official Host Hotels. Each has special MCACN exclusive perks for you, each offers reduced rate parking and all offer special MCACN rates. Five of our Official Host Hotels are directly across the street, one is just a few blocks away and the 7th offers free shuttle service to and from the convention center. Now that is service! Rates start at just $121.00 per night at the Crowne Plaza and $125.00 at the Sonesta. The DoubleTree has an awesome welcome reception party Friday night and the Embassy Suites has a fantastic made to order breakfast, (with great omelets!). The Hyatt and the Hilton are connected via an overhead enclosed walkway, (the Habit-trail for humans) so those of you who join us from the warmer climates never need to go outside. The aLoft is one of the newest area hotels, and it has a super cool vibe. ALL are familiar with what we do, who we are and they are geared up and ready for us.
We now have direct booking links for all seven Official Host Hotels here: www.mcacn.com/hotels. You can read about each of them and decide which is best suited for you and your family. As an FYI, the DoubleTree and Embassy always sell out well in advance and last year we booked over 2,000 room nights, so don't hesitate to book your rooms now. There are cut-off dates, and in most cases, they do sell out before these dates. Once they are sold out, they really are sold out and with the great rates we have secured, you don't want to miss out.
Being in the middle of the action is a huge part of what makes the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show such a special event. Much like an annual "family reunion" we take over the entire community. Rosemont welcomes us with open arms and they look forward to having us join them. When you add in the Rosemont Entertainment District, with all kinds of activities, restaurants, bars, bowling, indoor skydiving and the 130+ store outlet mall all within walking distance, you can clearly see why we love this area. It really is the perfect place to do what we do, and with the close proximity to the Chicago O'Hare Airport, there is no need for out of towners to rent a car, as all of our Official Host Hotels also have free airport shuttles

While it may seem like November is a long way off, it will sneak up on us! Please plan on joining us now, book your rooms and bring your friends and family. 2023 is already coming together in a HUGE way, and we can't wait to descend upon Rosemont again, Saturday, November 18, and Sunday, November 19, 2023.
Stay Tuned, as we will be announcing new special displays, some amazing cars and features that assure another great show.
Be Safe, Be Nice and Please Help Us Spread the Word!
