It so happens that this event ends up being on the same weekend as several graduations in the area. So you need to reserve your room(s) now!

 The official hotel for this event is the Hampton Inn and is a brand new hotel. The reservation code is COR which will work on their online reservations. The Corvair rate is $129.00 per night and the total for the 2 nights will be $294.12 including taxes. This is a refundable rate for cancellation by 6:00pm on the 18th.

 Hampton Inn

4855 E Evergreen CT  (this a side street off of Mt Zion Rd which is a major Hwy)

Decatur, IL 62521


Make your reservations at: use group code- COR

However, for those of you who feel this is too pricy there is a Hawthorne Suites one block further south. Their rates are $92.65 and the 2 night will cost $211.24 incl. taxes BUT this is a non refundable rate! The normal refundable rate is: $109.00 and the 2 nights would be $248.52. This is a little smaller hotel but looks to be as good or maybe better as where we stayed in Pontiac, IL last year.

 Hawthorne Suites

2370 S Mt Zion RD

Decatur, IL 62521

 Make your reservations at:

The Hawthorne Suites has a special Chevrolet Museum rate of $79.00 per night + tax!

 Note: This has nothing to do directly with the Corvair CORSA grand opening we are attending. But take advantage of this lower rate by calling the hotel front desk directly to make your reservation.

 Make your reservations by calling the hotel directly:

(217) 864-9311

 or go to offical hotel site, but you cannot get the special rate.

Be careful of the site you go to make your hotel reservations. Only use the direct hotel websites I have provided. If you don’t you will incur more fees for you reservation!

 You choose where you wish to stay. Several of us are going to the Hawthorne due to the cost. The hotels are 1 block away from each other. Both provide breakfast and free  Wi-Fi. These are the closest hotels to the Corvair Museum.
