Hey Guido - any more info on that parking 4 block away?

Are there any commuter lots on public transportation that can be used for parking once checked in at the hotel. Have done that in DC, worked great.

You probably know as much about parking in Philly as I do.  A google link www.philadelphia.centralparking.com took me to the parking garages in town.  I clicked on the Center link to the right and found a garage at 800 Market Street (4 blocks away) for $18/day with an printable online coupon.  There's also a garage at the 1500 block of Market Street, but that must be a ritzier neighborhood because it was $25/day.  If anyone has better intel then me about the parking situation, please chime in by all means.

Thanks for the info and link.

We are probably equal in our knowledge of parking in Philly.  Was only once some years back.

I'll let you figure it all out Jeff and get back to me.  ;D

Asked an AABG member that moved to Philly for advice. Will let you know.

My brother lives in a suburb of Philly.  He'd love to move closer to city center, but he says the parking would cost almost as much as the housing.  I will check with him to see if has any helpful hints.

I'll be taking the train.  Parking in Philly is not all that bad, but it can get expensive.

I was going to take the train but it is cheaper and shorter to fly from the airport 15 minutes from my house.

Air transportation for me would be a parachute out of a cropduster. ;)  I can catch a SEPTA train into Philly from Newark, DE which is about 1/2 hour away.

I'm sure these details will be coming soon, but can anyone tell me if the conference is at the host hotel or the Convention Center?

I was walking the streets of this area ( on Google Earth ) and it seems like the convention center is connected to several hotels via skybridges, etc.

Just curious, but if you can't say, I have no problem waiting for the official announcement.

Thanks.

Bluesman said in reply #20 it's not at the convention center.  At the conference website, on the "about" tab, it says that most of the conference takes place at the hotel.  However, I do think the hotel and the cc are connected.

Anyway, I booked my hotel on points. Thanks for pointing out the information was available. I still think waiting to announce the hotel is BS. It's fine to not make a block of rooms available until a particular date, but knowing the hotel/local allows planning and for folks like myself who stay in a hotel most of the year the ability to use points to book a room.

Is there going to be a code we can enter online to book the room in order to get the discounted rate?

No...just tell them you are attending/booking for the NHC.

What if you are booking via the link?  Is that going to be a special link for that rate only?

Also, like previous years, are there going to be the early and late days at the discounted rate? ( i.e. Tuesday before and Monday after )

Yes...you are correct. Booking via the link is the conference rate.
