We didn't get off to a very good start when there was a mix-up with our room but the problem was solved in pretty short order. We were given a nice greeting by management but when we went to happy hour in the bar, we could not use credit cards. That was a first on this trip! The room had weird lamps, a strong odor of air freshener and the bed was not that comfortable. Also there was no grab bar in the shower and the toilet ran on and on. Wifi was complimentary but weak. On the up side the hotel was in walking distance of Denny's, where we ate dinner and breakfast, and there was a complimentary shuttle to the airport.

It is stylish and cool ( in all senses) with very good a/c ... After a shower and rest I went to buy some food down by Girard st but at 94 degrees ...
... s turn to head down the wrong side of the road luckily there was nothing coming and Dave quickly did a U-turn, following this we had to stop as a chair flew across the road from the strong winds moving in from a storm.
It was getting dark and the storm clouds were moving in as we crossed another state line into New Jersey. Here we found another motel and settled down with some bud lights and the Olympic highlights on the TV. Tomorrow we're going to Jersey Shore!
... we found a spot called Campo’s Deli and got some cheesesteak sandwiches and pretzels. It was good eating. Of all the food experiences that I had been looking forward to for the trip, having a real cheesesteak sandwich in Philadelphia was tops on my list.
Finally, we meandered around the neighborhood for a while – walking along the cobblestone streets, and taking in the historical markers all around us – before ...
