Simon Business School

Hotel Info

There are multiple large groups visiting Philadelphia during the time period of the workshop. Occupancy is expected to be so high that a number of places declined to give us a group rate. We recommend that workshop attendees stay at the AKA University City hotel, which is at 2929 Walnut Street and is less than a mile from The Wharton School. The Thursday dinner will be at the Walnut Street Café, which is at the AKA University City.

The AKA University City is holding a block of rooms at a rate of $275 until Wednesday, May 15th. Rooms with a den or library are available for $335/night. To stay at the AKA University City, click here or call the hotel at 1-215-372-9000 and let them know you are with the “IT Teaching Workshop”.

After May 15th, you can contact Ralhan Patel, through email or by calling him directly at 1-267-463-5225 and seeing if they will still offer the "IT Teaching Workshop" rate.

In addition, the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, located at 1201 Market Street (guest entrance at 1200 Filbert Street), is holding a block of rooms at a rate of $169/night until Thursday, May 16th. While the hotel is just over 2 miles from Wharton, with traffic, this could be a 20 – 30 minute drive Friday morning. To stay at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, click here or call Marriott at 1-877-901-6632 and ask for the “IT Teaching Workshop” rate.
