Planes, Trains and Automobiles ...
a Guide for Traveling to Philadelphia


If you are flying in to Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) you have two alternatives to get to the hotel. You can take a taxi directly to the hotel. This will cost between $30 and $35 (not including tip). The less costly alternative is to take the train (Airport Shuttle) from the airport to Market Street East station. The shuttle runs every 30 minutes and costs $7. Market East Station is underground. Once on street- level the Loews Hotel is at 12th and Market Streets.


Amtrak service to Philadelphia is to 30th Street Station. Once at the station you have the option of taking a taxi to the hotel ($8 to $10; not including tip). You may also take the subway (Market Street Line) from 30th Street Station to 13th and Market ($2). You may want to splurge here to save the trouble of getting to the subway and the steps involved.
