Our go-to cheap Philly hotel just closed. Help us find an alternate for our wedding guests.

We’re in the midst of designing the invites for our wedding and have run into a major hurdle with the hotel. We initially wanted to have two options: a cheaper hotel located very close to our venue and a more expensive but nicer hotel located somewhere in Center City. We aren’t concerned about the expensive option since there are plenty of nice hotels in Philly but we recently found out that our cheap option is scheduled for demolition. Surprise!
We were going to go with the Best Western in Fairmount since the rates were about $170 a night and it was located about five blocks from our venue. Finding a replacement hotel that meets all these requirements is simply not going to happen but we’d like to find something in a not sketchy area for around $200 a night. If the hotel offered parking for a reasonable rate, all the better.
Googling is getting me nowhere fast. I’ll see ads offering rooms for $100 a night but the real rates wind up being close to $400 a night for our selected dates (April 25-27 since our wedding is on April 26th).
We are open to choosing a hotel outside of the city, close to the airport, but as a last resort.
Help us find a cheapish Philly hotel!
