I have already booked a room using this site. Also the room was $25
less than the rate for students.
There are many hotels but maybe they just are not humongous i.e. 1200
rooms. The largest I saw was 560 rooms.
This site has several hotels available at a discount: http://www.1800hotels=
Great site. Most Center City Philadelphia hotels are pricey but this
site offers great deals.
You must pay 20% up front and the balance 6 weeks prior to check in.
They keep 20% deposit if you cancel. (Which, if you book 5 nights will
be the same one night cancelation charge as the Marriott)
They charge $20 for a guarenteed 2 beds instead of one king.
The Loew's is 1 block from the convention center and is $120 from this
Holiday Inn Historic center is 8 short blocks east for $95 from this
site, $20/night for parking
The Alexander is about 6-7 blocks away.
The Rodeway looked decent. 4 or 5 long blocks south of convention
Philly is a walking city. Nothing in the center is very far away.
North south blocks are longer than east west.
