ACM Discounts

As a member of the ACM (Associated Colleges of the Midwest), Carleton faculty, staff, students, and alums can take advantage of discounted rates at the following locations for business or pleasure:

  • Club Quarters - ACM has a membership with Club Quarters for stays at any Club Quarters (domestic and international locations). Their website has more information on rates, locations, and amenities. The password for ACM guests booking online is ACM. If booking over the phone make sure to mention Associated Colleges of the Midwest or ACM to get the correct rate.  This can be used for business or pleasure and is open to staff, faculty, alumni, and the wider ACM community. Club Quarters has some great pricing on holidays and weekends, but they don’t show that information online—it requires calling and asking for the specific holiday or weekend rate.
    2019 rates  All ACM rates at Club Quarters do not include any additional amenities. 
  • Best Western River North, Chicago  (125 W. Ohio) - ACM guests receive a breakfast voucher, hi-speed wireless internet access, access to the indoor pool, fitness center, and outdoor deck. Parking is $15/night.

    2019 rates Rates do not include 16.4% tax per night.
  • University Club of Chicago (76 E.
