Hi From Dublin Ireland,

I have checked all Hotel web sites to get a good deal .I find accomadation prices very expensive in Philly.

I have a great price for airline tickets from

Dublin to Philly for 6 days early May,We wiil consider staying in

the suburbs with good transport connections.

Reason for our trip our ancestors emigrated to Philadelphia in the 1900.Gavin family from county

clare.

Kindest Regards,

Baile Bologna,

Philadelphia

Staying in the suburbs will eat up almost as much in transport and time as you will save. Have you checked hotwire or priceline? What do you consider expensive?

There are 2 of us travelling.We stayed in Fort Lauderdale last

Christmas in Kira-Mar-Waterfront Villas 15 minutes walk from Los

Olas in beautiful accomadation at a cost of $83 a night including

breakfast great value.

We travel a lot in Europe and can get a nice 3 or 4 star hotel for 135 $ a night.

heres a link to weather information tripadvisor.com/Travel-g60795-s208/Philadelp…

May is a nice time to visit our area. The weather is usually pleasant and flowers/trees begin to blossom. Also, the Philadelphia International Flower Show runs early May. http://www.theflowershow.com/home/index.html

Hotel prices vary depending on a lot of factors, but the flower show week brings a lot of visitors to our area and that tends to drive up prices. There can be some good values if you know where to look for them. Staying in the suburbs is not really recommended but can be doable if you rent a car. If you are not planning to rent a car, I would not advise it. You would be able to easily get around on public transit, this is more of a car culture here.

Finding a hotel for $80 a night including breakfast will be virtually impossible to find in Philly at any time of year unless you are very lucky with a discount site like Priceline or Hotwire.

Here are some hotels that usually offer good value in Philadelphia

not sure the exact dates of your stay but I checked Hotwire for a booking May 1 throughMay 8 and found a 3* Center City East hotel available for $109 including continental breakfast.

try Hotwire for your dates using hotel criteria 3* and above, Olde Towne/Penns Landing or Center City East areas.
