If I stopped pulling up seats I'd quit...but since I do... I'm losing it

Where are you trying for?

Exactly. Especially considering that all the rooms are only 1 bed or 2 twin beds. So basically 2 adults max.

We should look for somewhere near the Wachovia that can be split 4 ways per room.

OK, I'm trying to figure out the hotel situation and I think I may have found what we're looking for.

Do we have a ballpark figure of how many rooms we'll need? We can fit 4 people into a room if we need to, the rooms come with 2 double beds.

I have been on trips where we've crammed 8+ people in a room....

I'm perfectly willing to sleep on a floor.

But I have no clue as to how many people are actually coming...6? 8? 12?

I'm trying to get us a quote for the Marriott Airport Hotel apparently it's connected by skyway directly to the terminal.

OK, I've based this on 2 rooms, and we'll cram as many people in as we can fit.

The quote I have is for the Marriott Philadelphia Airport Hotel, which is connected to the airport. Standard room rate is $99.00 per night. I've said 3 nights, because I'm leaving on the 16th and I figure there might be some who will be leaving that night as well. It's very possible that if there are those leaving the 15th that we'll only need one room on the night of the 16th.

Anyways, it's $99 per room per night. There's an 8% tax so one night for both rooms comes to $213.84 ($106.92/room). Now if we get them for 3 nights that comes to $641.52 for both rooms for the whole weekend. Now let's say we have 8 people. That makes it $80.19 per person for the entire weekend.

Sound good?

I can pitch in money for one night. I'm planning on bringing throws or something and maybe just inhabiting the floor with Tara. We'll bring some pillows and a throw blanket or two.

It sounds like $20 per person per night? Is that about right with 8 people in two rooms?
