Sept 12 through Sept 15
Embassy Suites Hotel O'Hare – Rosemont
Everything is now official. We were able to get a beautiful all suites hotel for $99 per night. It is located in Rosemont, IL which is approximately 15 miles northwest of Chicago, just off of I-90.
The hotel is located just 2 miles from O'Hare International Airport and is easily accessed by the Blue Line Subway System, which also goes to downtown Chicago. I have personally taken this subway between the airport, the hotel, and downtown Chicago.
There will be a $15 parking fee per day which is easily offset by the full cooked-to-order breakfast and complimentary evening manager's cocktail reception.
The Embassy Suites Chicago-O'Hare/Rosemont offers an array of services and amenities. Included in the guest room rate is our complimentary full cooked-to-order breakfast and complimentary evening manager's cocktail reception.
I am sure that I will hear about the location, the cost, and access to this or that but please trust me when I say that we put in many many hours into finding this hotel. Any hotel in downtown Chicago that could handle our reunion was a minimum of $180 per night plus $35 a day parking.
I hope that you are all as excited as I am and I ask you to please mark the dates on your calendars and plan to attend. There will be many more e-mails to follow about the Reunion, Chicago, Rosemont, and our former shipmates.
If you have any suggestions about what to do, where to go, what not to miss, or how to run a reunion, please pass them on. There is a lot to see and do in the area but we only have a few days to fit it in.
Hope to see you all there.
Eric Miller - Reunion Chairman
