Mummery and Revelry Punctuate the New Year at Downtown Hotels in Philadelphia

The Philadelphia Marriott Downtown's Latest Package Combines Luxe Accommodations With a Performance No One Will Forget

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwired - Dec 27, 2013) -  Deciding how to spend New Year's Eve usually revolves around choices concerning dinner, drinks and some form of group celebration. But at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, such pedestrian options are swept away amid the thrumming music and glittering costumes of its New Year's Eve Mummers Package.

Considering that the package includes deluxe overnight accommodations at one of the finest Philadelphia luxury hotels around, guests who book the package might not ordinarily care what else was involved. After all, more than 1,400 guest rooms and suites offer four-star service and recently renovated style. The inclusive breakfast for two at 13 Restaurant means guests can sample one of the city's best breakfasts without leaving the property. And as the hotel is near Philadelphia's Franklin Institute, it's convenient to all the best shopping, dining and entertainment the city has to offer.

Yet the Mummers Package involves a performance so colorful and choreographed that it's as enticing as these luxurious hotel accommodations. Guests who book the package are treated to two tickets to the noon showing of the Mummers Fancy Brigade Finale at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on January 1, 2014. This two-and-a-half-hour performance showcases the year-long efforts of the 11 Fancy Brigade clubs as the performers display a dizzying array of steps, costumes, themes and larger-than-life props. And for guests who arrive in town early, the four-day family festival leading up to the Finale is a great way to get a glimpse of what's to come.

As perhaps the most sequined and celebratory of downtown Philadelphia hotel deals, the Mummers Package is a truly unique way to mark the New Year. And for guests who'd like to extend their stay, the hotel's center-city Philadelphia, PA location is as convenient to all the historical sites (think Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell) as it is to the airport.

Rates for the Mummers New Year's Eve Package begin at $275 per night, and travelers may use the promotional code YX1 to secure the package when booking. To make reservations, visitors may visit or call 1-800-228-9290.
