Looking for hotel suggestions


Me and my hubby will be on holiday in USA for nearly 3 weeks and will be spending 3 nights (8th - 11th October) and don't want to spend more than around $400 total for 3 nights but would like a fairly centrally located hotel. Am currently considering the Crowne Plaza West - is this hotel any good or does anyone have any other suggestions? We won't have a car and will be flying on to Vegas after Philadelphia

Many thanks

The Crowne Plaza Philadelphia West is not in a convenient location. You want to stay in Center City (downtown), and that hotel is on the edge of the city. Check out the FAQ on where to stay for a description of the different areas. The FAQs are on the right side of the page on the desktop version (not the mobile version) of TA.

Taking a quick look on Kayak, I see the Sonesta available for your dates for $108 per night plus tax, which adds 15.2%. That's a decent option at a very good rate in Center City. To find anything else within your budget, you will probably have to try Hotwire or Priceline for a blind deal, where you pay up front before knowing the hotel and you can't cancel. Check Better Bidding for info about using Hotwire and Priceline:

Lauren1217 found you a great deal on Kayak for the Sonesta. I would strongly consider booking that hotel deal if it is still available. The same hotel is $229 on Priceline.
