The event will be massive, and so places to stay near there can quickly sell out. If it does, don’t worry, here’s a tip for you. When searching online for a place to stay, trying searching for hotels in King of Prussia. When you do, you will find that the Hyatt House Philadelphia/King of Prussia is only a 15 to 20-minute drive to the event. The Hyatt offers guests spacious rooms that are designed as if you were still at home. You can choose from a variety of rooms or suites with some having full kitchenettes. They also have a business center, fitness center, and an indoor pool. If that’s not enticing enough, they also offer free internet access and free breakfast. If you are wondering, they are also pet-friendly. So, staying at the Hyatt is a good choice, providing you the comforts of home with modern amenities.
If you are flying in and are arriving at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), then you will have access to, at the time of writing, seven car rental companies there. If you are thinking more along the lines of public transportation, then the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) can get you to the event as well. Be warned; it may take a chunk of your time commuting to the event. So if you are in a hurry, you will need to plan ahead. If you opted to stay at the Hyatt, they do offer shuttle service within a 3-mile radius, so it’s a good option to have if you need or want to get around the area of the hotel.
Where to Eat
If hunger strikes while you are at the Philly Home & Garden Show, the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center will have a variety of food concessions on site.
