RCC and ACP have chosen a wonderful venue for their joint 2019 convention set for April 10-13 in Chicago. Enjoy the rich history and modern luxury offered by the Millennium Knickerbocker Chicago hotel.
The location is great. You’ll be close to Chicago 360, an observation deck with views of the skyline and Lake Michigan; the Magnificent Mile, offering shopping, dining, entertainment venues; and nearby Oak Street Beach where you can continue to explore Chicago.
The price is reasonable. Working together, the convention planners were able to negotiate a special group rate of $139+tax per night. That rate is good until March 10. Please make your own hotel reservations.
This 4 -star hotel has been operating in Chicago since 1927. Don’t miss the re-created, illuminated glass dance floor where famous dance acts in its early years performed. More than 300 guest rooms, the beautiful Crystal Ballroom, more than 18K square feet of meeting space are among the amenities.
Three dining options include NiX Restaurant, Martini Bar, and Library Tea Room.
Millennium Knickerbocker Hotel, 163 E Walton Place, Chicago, IL 60611. Call 800-621-8140 for hotel reservations or book online.
