Microtel - PHL

Sun Jun 06, 2021 6:45 pm

Stayed at the Microtel Hotel next to the Philadelphia airport last weekend and starting at 1130 PM people were drag racing their cars on the boulevard that runs next to the hotel. My room faced the road so of course I was awoken by all of the noise. I had to be up early to catch a flight but it was fun watching the races as they lasted until 1230 AM, lots of noise, smoke and yelling...LOL.

That's Philly for you, I don't know if you would had a better experience staying downtown next time and catching the train or uber to the airport.

It worked out okay as I was able to get back to sleep, return my rental car and get to the gate in plenty of timeto catch my flight to FLL.

A bit surprised the police didn't show up as I assumed multiple guests in my hotel and others called them.
