If you don't mind a short walk or taxi ride, Hotwire has some great deals for Saturday night. $118-$135 for 3 or 4 star hotels that are in the area. I would assume the previous few days are cheap too if you miss out on the main hotel.

Careful about non-refundable rates though since conference registration is not open yet.
 
The Residence Inn (one block away) had single king rooms for the same rate with AAA. They include breakfast too.

True... but registration opens in a little over 2hrs  ;)

Anyone know which alternate hotels are connected with a skybridge? I like skybridges.
Thank you BEER!

The Hilton Garden Inn is adjacent and probably connected to the Convention Center which has a skybridge to the Marriott. I think that's the only one.

I don't think there are any. The east side of the Marriott is connected to the Convention Center (I'm almost positive). But I believe that's the only bridge. But, there's also a complex of underground walkways that go under the convention center, the plaza, and lead to mass transit. But there are a lot of hotels in the near vicinity. And it's late June, so the weather shouldn't be a problem.

NHC 2013 Hotel?

The Philadelphia Downtown Marriott has already sold out. :P
The AHA has noted that its next hotel is the Courtyard Philadelphia Downtown, but it has not yet posted booking information on its registration W-WW page.
Looking at my AAA Tourbook, other hotels in the vicinity include the aforementioned Residence Inn by Marriott, the Loews Philadelphia, a Hilton Garden Inn Philadelphia Center City, and a Hampton Inn Center City.
I have managed to register for the entire conference, and shall be motoring (from Chicago). I am seeking somebody with whom to share a room for Wed-Sat (or Thu-Sat) of the conference.
The last time I was in Philadelphia, I found an unmetered parking spot two blocks away from a subway station. I parked the car there, rode the subway to my events, and checked back on it the next day (moving it slightly). Obviously, it was still there, and hadn't suffered any damage. ;)
I'll be checking this thread for more information about parking. Thank you.
I enjoy malty beers.

If anyone is looking for a hotel near the Marriott, try the Loews across the street - its close (a stumble across Market St) and they have some rooms available at reasonable rates (I found a room as cheap as the Conference hotel)- I suspect the lower rates will be unavailable soon though.

I received a confirmation from the housing bureau when I booked my room yesterday.  When those reservations are loaded into the hotels system, will a separate confirmation from the hotel be sent?

Just curious.

Thanks.

I'm not sure on this but I put my marriott rewards number in and after registering I was able to see the reservation when I logged into my account on their main website

I'm looking for a roommate (preferentially one with a room already booked :p).  Shoot me a message if you already have a room set up!

I concur. I booked a room at the Loews through Priceline for 127 a night.

On another note, some of us are thinking about taking Amtrak from Lynchburg, Va into Philly. Appears to be only $55 round trip. My question is for people in Philly, which stop should we get off on in Philly? One is called "North Philadelphia" and the other is "30th Street". Which one is closer to the hotel? How far away is it, would we ned a cab? Thanks.
