For those of you renting a car, Enterprise had some pretty good rates. $17 and change for a full size. For whatever reason, that was cheaper than my wife's corporate account.

Also - in Philly they can now stop you for using your cell phone - make sure your cell is hands free - I don't want to have to bail any of you out.....

Hotwire is $13.95/day for midsized. We decided against it, however, so far. Probably have to pay parking at the hotel, and how much will we be driving around?

I think they should probably tell them at the phone operator center as well. Although, I was quoted at $34.80. I wonder who Julie talked with that she got such a great discount? :eek:

I'm bringing my Bullsheet with me.

Called the hotel AGAIN (lol). The hotel itself does not have a shuttle. There is a shuttle you can pick up at the airport called Lady Liberty and they're by the taxi cab stand and they'll drop you off at the hotel for $10 per person.

If anyone needs to know anything else, I'd be more than happy to call and gather the information.

Did you/could you call and ask how much approximately for a taxi to the hotel?? :mrgreen::lol:

Seriously though, thanks for the information.

Diva
01-13-2010, 02:08 PM
Taxi (readily available by baggage claim): 32.00 flat rate (not including gratuity) to/from hotel/airport (each way).

Lady Liberty Shuttle (also available by the baggage claim area): $10.00 pp each way
For departure from the hotel to the airport, it is suggested that guests call Lady Liberty shuttle to confirm a pick up at the hotel, or arrange for the concierge/front desk/ doorman to make the arrangements and confirm pick up.

Could I walk it?

OK so if you have three people or less, it looks like Lady Liberty is a better deal. Not sure you could get four in a taxi anyway unless it was one of those vans.
