We got up early this morning at 6 am to catch our bus out to the Zurich Airport. Caught our US 711 First Class to Philadelphia at 9:30 am this morning on a Boeing 767. Had our breakfast in the First Class Lounge and then headed out to our gate. Oddly, they shuttled us out on a subway train to our gate that was on the other side of the airport.

Biking the Boardwalk

... One that caught our attention had a series of free standing bridges. It was hard to imagine how they could get the sand packed enough to stand without support underneath. There were about 25 sculptures, each in a roped off area, so the sculptors had to work with limited space and in close proximity to others. It was quite impressive. I'm sort of embarrassed by my drip castles now!
We took the bikes back and split up to do what we ...

Finding My Seoul

... that passion. Sometimes...when I'm not traveling, I feel that my curiosity, wonder, passion is at a standstill until I experience my next adventure abroad. From day to day life, it's easy to fall into complacency even though it's something that I actively try to avoid. Sometimes I wonder if there's something wrong with me. Why aren't I content in staying in one place? Maybe ...

Why you should obtain just natural products.

... minerals and vitamins. Everybody knows the expression: you are what you eat. Really these words expose an absolute truth and this is why for everybody, that is interested in his or her health it's important to think firstly on what she or he eats every day, particularly in our times, when many people just don't care on the food they tuck in. To obtain the needed food as well as natural options for your system we recommend you ...

Philadelphia Revisited

... Samuel and his wife were movers and shakers
of their period and entertained every Founding Father and foreign dignitary
around. The house was save for
demolition in 1930 by the Philadelphia Society for the Preservation of
Landmarks. The rooms are beautifully
restored and furnished with pieces still owned by distant relatives of Samuel
and Elizabeth.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Microtel Inn & Suites Philadelphia Airport

    Scary!!

    from

    have resevations for the end of Oct. haven;t stayed yet , but after all I have read about the reviews, sounds like I may have made a bad mistake by booking there, hope to be wrong.

    Stay Away if you Can!

    from

    If you are stuck staying at this hotel prepare yourself. First off if you follow MapQuest directions to this place you'll be driving around in circles. If you call for help they don't know how to get you there either. That is of course if they even answer the phone.

    Cheap, but stay away!

    from

    I was attracted to this place because of it's proximity to the airport, and low price. Big mistake! The staff was rude upon check in. The water pipes had burst and the lower 2' of wall in the whole reception area was torn out. The room was filthy. The phone had some kind of a substance covering it, so that none of us wanted to use it. Maybe this is intentional, to keep you from calling the front desk and complaining. There was hair on the sheets and in the bathroom. Also I could see through the sheets and the pillows were about 2" thick. The walls seemed to be made of cardboard as we were awakened every time people passed through the hallway outside our room. The continental breakfast was pretty rough too. We took a look and decided to only eat the items that were sealed in plastic. The juice machine was leaking water onto the middle of the floor, creating a huge puddle with a rag laying in the middle of it. All in all, this place is a dump. I wouldnt stay there again if it was for free.

    Microtel below any standard

    from

    It is one of the lousiest hotels I ever experienced in this country. Poorly maintained, filthy, and just not the place to stay. Unfortunately, I had, since I had no reservation, and all other hotels in the area were booked. The only positive thing to say is the wireless Internet, which works fine. All negative items would burst this comment box!

    Dismal

    from

    I stayed here on a stormy night after many flights were cancelled. My check-in experience:

    Nice Location/Nice Staff......

    from

    Super convenient for park and fly. Staff is very nice but rooms are not up to par. Continental breakfast in the AM but nothing great. Early vans fill up quickly, so don't be late.

    Housekeeping staff is now subcontracted and tends to be a little rude and will try to rush you out of your room in order to leave early.

    Rooms are not as clean as they have been, so management needs to pay attention.

    It can be a little raucous on weekends with groups, so try to get a quiet room. Overall, great value but don't have high expectations.

    We used the Park and Fly deal with this hotel.

    OK for parking car, but ...

    from

    We used this hotel because it was close to the airport and we had an early flight. We checked in late and left early, a total of about 9 hours. From our experience, I believe this might have been considered to be an extended stay at this place. The exterior of the hotel is OK, but the room we had was the filthiest room we've ever seen. The bedspread was thoroughly stained and dirty, and had several cigarette burns through it. When we removed it we found that the blanket was covered with an estimated 50 long hairs that almost seemed to be woven into the surface. After we removed about 10 we gave up. We removed the blanket and found that there were also a few hairs on the sheet, but we were able to brush them off. I would venture a guess that the bed might have been changed about a week ago, and the last visitor had a collie, or something similar, in bed with them. The heater thermostat didn't work so we had a choice of no heat or too much heat. Because the heater was covered with a thick coating of grime we chose no heat. We decided to sleep with our clothes on, and covered the pillows with tissues.

    GREAT VALUE FOR THE PRICE!

    from

    Stayed prior to a early Saturday morning flight to Las Vegas. The rooms are plain and non-descript, however, seemed to be very clean. We showed up early for the shuttle (highly recommended as it is first-come, first-serve) and made it in plenty of time for a 7:30 AM flight. Upon our return we used the courtesy phone and were picked up in a short period of time. Our car wouldn't start and AAA was going to take hours to show. One of the desk clerks found someone to jumpstart us and get us on our way saving hours of waiting time. Considering the price of the room is no more than a weeks parking we found it much more convenient than driving in so early in the morning and having to find parking and get to the airport in time to clear security. For the price you can't go wrong.

    Great Price But ..........

    from

    Stayed at the Microtel on 2/17. We had an early flight on the 18th.
