I wanted to add some information about this year’s Grand National Meet. The host hotel (the Hilton) sold out of rooms very quickly because of the great interest in this year’s GN. Most likely, rooms won’t be available there except in the event of cancellation.
The good news is, the GN committee has obtained a “back-up” hotel. It is the Westin Tysons Corner, in Tysons Corner, Virginia. The Westin is located one mile from the Hilton, and there will be a continuous shuttle running between the two hotels from about 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. So if you stay at the Westin, and prefer to leave your show car parked in its reserved spot at the Hilton, you will have no problem getting back and forth between the hotels.
The room rate at the Westin is $139 per night, plus tax. To reserve a room at the Westin, call 1-888-627-8970 and reserve your room using group code Cadillac and LaSalle Club Overflow Room Block.
Both hotels are located just off the Capital Beltway on the west side of Washington, D.C.
For anyone who may be undecided about attending, here’s a point to bear in mind: the next CLC Grand National on the East Coast will probably be in 2022. This may be the last opportunity for five years to attend an outstanding GN within a short driving distance. And, this year’s meet is likely to be one of the largest in the Club’s history.
