We arrived in Philadelphia this afternoon on our last time of using the Amtrak. Leaving Washington was quite tricky as the train left on a low platform so I had to get Faye, the bags and buggy up onto the train, that was a challenge.
We got a taxi from Philadelphia 30th St Station to our hotel The Cromwell Inn which is situated on the Temple University campus. It was $13 for about a ten minute drive.
We got checked in and unpacked and went out for a wander to see what was around. There is a 7 Eleven shop just around the corner so we stocked up on goodies and came back to the hotel.
We popped out for a quick dinner at Qdoba, which was a 5 minute walk away. Qdoba is like Subway but with Mexican food – but it was surprisingly tasty and only cost 12 bucks.
The hotel is lovely and rated well on trip advisor but at the moment I am unsure on the area. We are slightly outside the city centre but only a five minute walk from the train so it should be easy to access.
We’re now tucking into our 7.30 feast.
