hello kind and knowledgeable tripadvisor folks
my 16 year old son and i will be on a college tour of the east coast and arrive in philadelphia 8/17. we will have a rental car.
we are touring temple university on monday and drexel and villanova on tuesday.
i'm not familiar with philadelphia. is there a central location that would be the best area to stay so my son can get a sense of what living in philadelphia would be like?
on expedia the best deals are at these hotels: palomar, sofitel, independent and omni (which are all around 150/night) and the alexander (116/night)
thank you for your advice
