Host Hotel Reservations

The Holiday Inn Wilmington Host Hotel will open its reservations for the 2017 ACA Nationals on October 10, 2016 at 11:00 EST. Rooms are $119 plus tax.

Roberts Centre

The hotel will not allow more than two rooms per person, no exceptions! Terrie Breen will receive a weekly reservation list from the hotel. If someone has booked more than two rooms the additional rooms will be canceled. Unfortunately, The host hotel only has 100 guest rooms for ACA, so to be fair to all our members and guests attending the National we must limit the bookings to two rooms per person.
