PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - Aug 15, 2012) - As the last days of summer wind down, the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, a Temple University hotel, is giving you a chance to save on some big-city sunshine with its Book Now and Save Big package.
Available through June 1, 2013, this package gives you 20% off when you book at least two weeks in advance at this Philadelphia luxury hotel. With rates from $149 to $269 a night, you can afford to take a weekend to yourself, travel with friends and family or help your recent grad settle into her college dorm in the city of Brotherly Love.
The city is a hub for arts and culture, and there are plenty of events with which to coordinate your Philadelphia hotel reservations. Through the month of August, Penn's Landing, along the banks of the Delaware River, hosts free evening film screenings with themed activities to coordinate with what's being shown. Grab a blanket and a picnic for the remaining films of the summer: Justin Beiber: Never Say Never (Aug 16), Dolphin Tale (Aug 23) and The Descendants (Aug 30).
If you prefer music over films, Rittenhouse Square hosts its annual Concerts in the Park series, offering free live music from a variety of genres. The summer's remaining shows include Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band (Aug 15), Ground Up (Aug 22) and the Strapping Fieldhands and the Spinning Leaves (Aug 29).
When summer ends, however, the fun doesn't. Students heading back to school (and the parents visiting them) can experience the city's diverse dining scene with Center City District Restaurant Week September 23 to 28 and September 30 to October 5, 2012. Treat yourself to delicious prix fixe menus at more than 100 restaurants; three-course dinners are only $35 per person and three-course lunches are only $20 per person. Art lovers should head to the city in October for the Mural Arts Program, a month-long event that engages visitors in tours, public painting, mural dedications and exhibitions.
