Hotwire Hotel: 4* Philadelphia (Rittenhouse Square) Club Quarters Philadelphia

The 4* was the Club Quarters, bumped up from 3.5*. I thought it was the Westin, but this will be fine. It was clearly the best value on the board, so I just decided to grab it to be sure I didn't lose it.

Free internet and some other conveniences compensate for maybe a slightly less upscale hotel.

I did use your HOTWIRE link, of course!

I needed to extend this stay for another day. Hot.wire did offer me the extension option, but the price was $119. Instead I just booked another day (night of 7/7) at what was pretty obviously the Club Quarters, using a new search, and got it for $79. The CQ said I would have to check out and then immediately check back in but I could keep the room, so that's fine.

 

I did use your HOTWIRE link again and the amenities were exactly the same as for my first booking: Free Internet, Smoke-free rooms, Fitness center, Restaurant(s), Business center, Self-service laundry, Internet access, Accessible path of travel, Accessible bathroom, Roll-in shower.

 

I assume this info should go in the same thread, right? It's counts as the same stay, for your purposes? Although, now the info in the sub-header is wrong -- should I edit that?

Remind them at check-in that you have a separate, but continuous, reservation for the additional nite and ask them to put a note in the system to block the room, this should prevent then from per-assigning the room you're in to somebody else for the additional nite. Also, although you'll need to officially check-out/check-in again, this can usually be done any time on 'switch' day so you don't have to wait inline during peak check-in/check-out times (and with the note in your folio about blocking the room if you don't make the 'switch' until after official check-out time whoever is reviewing the accounts will understand that you've got an additional nite coming)

I'll add that if you have a car (it's in a suburb of philly) this is the best cheesesteak i have ever had (expect a line/wait... and no bathroom in the place either!):

Dalessandro's Steaks

600 Wendover St

Philadelphia, PA 19128

... and if your travels take you near either these are each worth a stop (but not a long journey out of your way):

Cass's Mart Pretzel Bakery (if you're traveling thru New Jersey)

202 US-130

Riverton, NJ 08077

Center City Pretzel Co

816 Washington Ave

Philadelphia, PA 19147

** this place wholesales to many of the carts in Philly, so they have very odd hours (confirm at their website)

Monday-Friday: 12AM - 12PM

Saturday: 4AM - 12PM

Sunday: 6:30AM - 10:30AM

Have a great trip.

Hope you enjoy them... i'll be in the general area later next month and intend to make the 45 minute detour to get to Dalessandro's again (and then Pretzel Mart which will then be 'sort of' on the way back)
