I really enjoy Philadelphia. Not only is it a quick 2 and 1/2 hour drive north, they also offer free hotel parking. (YES!)
Philly is showcasing some new cuisine like their new fast casual spot Chi Ken, the beerscene with Urban Village Brewing Company, and upscale dining with Maison 208.
Of course there are some great hotels in Philadelphia, and I am always first to judge when it comes to the living room lobby. Above is a video of my favorites. Enjoy, and visit Philly!
