Hotel for young family in Center City Philly

Visiting Philly in early April for 3 nights as a family of 4 (4 yo and 2yo). We know Philly well from an era before kids. Do you have recommendations for hotels in Center City that would work well for a family? I looked at Roost Midtown & Rittenhouse. Kitchen is not so important but we would be willing to pay for space and kid-friendly vibes. AirBnB suggestions welcome if you have a specific link. Thanks!

Car accident woes: at-fault driver ignoring insurance?

A few weeks back a car merged into me without warning, tearing up my back driver's side panel and door. Now they won't respond to their own insurance company's attempts to make contact and their insurance wants me to "prove" that it was their fault. The situation was a hit-and-run. What can I do? Pennsylvania. [more inside]

Triangulate our travel? (U.S. northeast/ Ohio/ mid-atlantic)

I want to meet up with far-flung friends in August since it’s been years and one of the friends is visiting from abroad. We’ll all have car access, but in addition to the added complication of kids (aged 1.5 to 8 years old), we… have no idea where to meet! Do you know a lot about destinations in PA, western NY, or northern OH? Please help us choose! [more inside]

The opposite of the usual “went through the wrong toll lane” - PA 476

Usually when people ask this type of question it’s because they went through an EZ-Pass lane without a transponder. I did exactly the opposite - I went though a “CASH ONLY” lane with an EZ-Pass. This was at a point where 476 changes from EZ-Pass only to cash and EZ-Pass. What now?
