If you're from out of town, you do not need a car. Transportation from the airport is easily available by train and taxi. The SEPTA train from the airport to Suburban Station is $6.50. From there it's a 5 minute (3 block) walk to the Sofitel. A taxi from the airport to the hotel Sofitel (17th at Sansom) is $28. Once downtown, everything is within walking distance.
If you are driving to the wedding, the Colonial Dames validates parking at the Latimer Garage. The Latimer Garage is on a small street located between 15th and 16th streets and between Locust Street and Spruce Street at 1510 Latimer Street. When you arrive at the lot they will valet park your car. Be sure to take your ticket with you to Colonial Dames where you will get your ticket stamped. You can enjoy the wedding and return to the 24 hour lot with your stamped ticket for validation.
We’ve reserved a block of rooms at the Sofitel Philadelphia. It's in a great location just blocks from the wedding venue and Rittenhouse Square. There are many restaurants and shops nearby, and Suburban Train station is a short walk away for
those looking to roam a little further.
We recommend booking a hotel room as soon as possible because of the holiday. The hotel is offering discounted rooms rates for guests until April 20th. Be sure to request the Bridges-Vasilescu Wedding Block when booking.
If you would like to stay at another hotel, there are several other options nearby such as The Palomar, The Latham Hotel, Radisson, Sonesta, Loews, Embassy Suites, and the Four Seasons.
If you have an extra day try out some Philadelphia classics.
