hotel close to North America Bldg

We are going to Philly in Oct to visit our son who will be studying at the Philadelphia Center. It is located at 121 S. Broad St. What do they call this area? Historic? Liberty Bell area? Anyone have ideas of hotels that are reasonable in this area? Anyone try Priceline downtown? Thanks.

Depending on who or where you get your information from , it can be called either "Avenue of the Arts", "Rittenhouse Square" , "West of Broad" or just plain "Center City". Broad Street aka "14th Street" is the main north-south street in the city and features our City Hall plopped right down in the middle.

Hotels in the immediate area include Park Hyatt at the Bellevue, Ritz-Carlton, Doubletree and Holiday Inn Express. The least expensive hotels downtown include Travelodge, Hampton Inn, Comfort Inn and Best Western Center City (not BW Independence Park). Philly has a very condensed and downtown so you can likely walk, ride a bus or hail a taxi for a cheap fare to visit your son.
