If you are coming in by bus, I would recommend you stay in the downtown area referred to as Center City. That will be close to the bus station which is on Arch Street. The hotel in that area will also be close to the historical area (Independence Hall, etc.) and the Reading Terminal Market where you can shop and eat if you wish.

Are you coming on Greyhound, Megabus or Boltbus? How much do you want to pay per room (you will need two). Center City is very compact and walkable, so where you should stay is very open, depending on your interests.

Shikha.

Check your messages and also - what bus company are you taking to Philadelphia and then from Philadelphia down to DC?

Easier to give recs if you specify your bus and budget. Presumably you need 2 rooms. Any special bed requests?

Thanks for the help

Yes we need two rooms. We are coming by boltbus and the budget would be around 600-700 dollars for all of us.have looked at sleep inn center city(nice reviews) and hampton inn (convention center). Any other suggestions would be more then welcome. We leave by megabus for dc next morning at 8:30.

Look at maps.google.com and use www.airbnb.Com for a place with easy access to 30th Street Station where nearby your buses will arrive and depart. Also check your messages.

Look on Priceline. Check historic district and Rittenhouse Square. There are good deals for that night, especially express deals at 4 and 4.5 hotels with an 8+ or higher guest rating for $146 - $185.

DO NOT reserve an AirBNB without checking with us. Often things are not what they seem regarding location, etc.

Definitely pick one of the Priceline Express Deals suggested over Sleep Inn or Hampton Inn, which are in less desirable area (not as safe or scenic).

Rittenhouse Square is one of the nicest areas in Philadelphia with quite a few hotels. Many attractions are either within walking distance or easily reached by nearby transportation.
