We are putting up our hotel reservation link early because last year we ran well past the number of rooms we initially booked and blocked off. This year we've blocked a few more, but it will be a good idea to make your reservations now even if you're not completely sure you can come. Doing so also helps us get a better estimated headcount and helps us when ordering food, beverages and transportation to events.
Here's a link to the hotel's website where you can view the facilities and amenities:
Hotel rates are as follows:
King room (Single or double occupant) $119 plus tax
2 Queen Bed Room (Single or double occupant) $139 plus tax

Discounted rates are good Aug 30-Sep 8 2020 for those wishing to extend their stay.
Every room is a two-room suite with a private bedroom and separate living area. Suites by O'Hare Airport offer TVs in each room, and living areas with sofa beds, armchairs, well-lit work tables, wet bars, refrigerators, microwaves and coffeemakers.

If you wish to make reservations by phone you may do so by calling 847-928-7648. Be sure to identify yourself as attending the Marine Corps Air Transport Association Reunion to get the special rates. You will be required to guarantee your room using a credit card when you call in.
The cut-off date for hotel reservations is Monday, August 3, 2020 at 5 PM Central Time.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Any room cancelled within 48 hours prior to check in will incur a one room night's charge plus tax.
If you missed last year's reunion you really missed a great time. San Diego was fun and everyone really enjoyed themselves. Many reunited with old friends they hadn't seen in years. We're going to try to improve on that this year so mark your calendars now and plan to join us.
This is also a great opportunity to recruit some of your friends who may not be active MCATA members. Let's sign them up or bring them back. Once they attend one of these reunions I guarantee they'll be happy about it and ready to come again.
