Hotel Updates: while our conference hotel block is sold out, even after negotiating for extra rooms, rooms at higher prices remain available at the Sheraton Society Hill.
But here are some very good alternatives within close proximity to the Sheraton, and we urge conference participants to book now while rooms at these reasonable prices are still in effect and available:
Wyndham Hotel – near the Sheraton Society Hill – has reduced rates if booked by August 31st for stays through 2016
Thanks to conference attendees who made the following suggestions:
Thomas Bond House, near the Sheraton Society Hill; prices vary but a few at a reasonable price are still available.
Hilton Penn’s Landing – a few blocks away; has a pool. It’s $199/refundable rate, but goes down to $184 if you use AAA or other discounts. Also there’s a pay in advance $179 rate nonrefundable – these prices may have already gone up.
For other hotels, googling, hotels near the Sheraton Society Hill, or hotels Philadelphia Historic District, brings up a number of other hotels. If booking through an online booking agency, check the hotel’s website too to ensure you are getting the best price.
Airbnb – private home rentals; this is a good option especially if there are several conference attendees willing to share space.
The Society Hill area is very walkable at all times.
