A Summer's Week in Philly

An August 2003 trip to Philadelphia by mallan83

Quote: It is a nice city, but don't spend too long here - it can become boring and redundant. Oh, we saw all the attractions! Don't worry about driving; just take the Phlash, an inexpensive city-wide visitor shuttle bus, instead.

Hampton Inn Philadelphia Center City-Convention Center

Hotel | "Hampton Inn Convention Center"

Quote:
This has a nice building, nice rooms, a bad location, and a lousy staff. This staff was very unpleasant during the continental breakfast and not only to us but to others as well. I read on another Internet site that the staff steals your credit card info.

We did not eat there but wish we did. It is a very nice little Italian spot in the middle of the city. Give it a go!

Hard Rock Cafe

Restaurant

Quote:
I have never tried them anywhere, so since there was no Planet Hollywood, why not? They had good food but lousy service. They also had good decor, but the loud music was disturbing.

Penn's Landing

Attraction | "Penn’s Landing"

Quote:
Nice! Take the ferry across the Delaware River to Camden, New Jersey, to watch a baseball game and/or go to the aquarium. Just don't explore the city. Why!? Just ask the locals.

Independence Hall

Attraction | "The Liberty Bell/Independence Hall"

Quote:
It was worth every second and penny to experience the birthplace of America and its heritage, from the bell, hall, and Betsy's and Ben's house to the first synagogue to the new constitution center. Enjoy!
