1. IF YOU'RE ARRIVING BY TRAIN OR PLANE:
College guest housing is full because of an Alumni Council meeting that weekend. Other housing in Swarthmore is very scarce but two small B&Bs have just opened:
124 Park Ave.
610 544 1785
314 Harvard Ave.
610 544 6779
Other than that, those without cars would do well to stay at a hotel in Philadelphia near a train station--the airport train goes to the same three stations mentioned below and you can also catch a train to Swarthmore at them. The train arrives at 30th Street Station, not near any hotels but a stop or two from the following:
In Center City (Suburban Station)
99 South 17th Street at Liberty Place
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19103
In Chinatown (Market St. East Station)
Clarion Suites Philadelphia
1010 Race Street
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19107
Right by University of Pennsylvania Hospital (University Station)
Penn Tower Hotel
Civic Center Boulevard at 34th Street,
Philadelphia, PA 19104-4385
215-387-8333 or 800-356-PENN
2. IF YOU'RE DRIVING
There's a nice B&B near Media
The Alpenho, Roland Müler
610-566-1995 or 610-891-8222
There are various modest motels around (several on I95 by the airport).
Some college folks have used
1300 Providence Avenue
Chester, Pennsylvania United States 19013
If you come on I95 it's right by the Chester downtown exit, on the corner of Rt. 32o and Rt. 252.
