Cant seem to find a hotel.

I have a concert at Susquehanna Bank Center in a few weeks and I wanted to take the Ferry and stay the night in Philadelphia. Everything is booked! Anyone have any suggestions on where else to stay? I don't mind driving like 15 mins from the Ferry, I just don't really want to stay in Jersey.

Without dates, its very hard to help you. If you are looking at the time around 7/4, its very possible most of the city is sold out.

Loews hotel has availability. Other than that stay in NJ, maybe Cherry Hill area.

The best option I see on Kayak is the Loews for $329. The few other hotels that are available are more than $400 for that night.

That's a difficult and expensive night.

Although the PHL airport/stadium area is typically not recommended, your options are rather limited at this point.

Hotwire has a 2-star hotel in this area for $66 per night, including free parking, breakfast, and Internet.

Please ignore Rhonda's comments. She posts frequently about how dangerous Camden is without ever having set foot in it, and refuses to explain why she feels the way she does. Tens of thousands of people attend concerts there every year without incident.

The area of Camden you will be in is not near the areas mentioned in the news stories.

Yeah I am not worried about the venue. I have been there before and know it's safe. I guess I have come to the conclusion that I will have to stay in Cherry Hill. Any suggestions of a hotel?
