If you make your way to Philly this summer, you might want to opt for a getaway within a getaway, courtesy of Hotel Palomar -- picnic, bikes and drinks included.
When you stay in Center City Philadelphia, you stay in a hotel, which could make you feel boxed in. Luckily, there are places like Hotel Palomar that want you to take advantage of the summer breeze... and take a gourmet picnic along to boot.
Just pick your favorite sammies, sides and sips, and tell them a pickup time -- and grab your bike (if you choose), because a complimentary bike rental is also included -- and you'll be on your way. Remember to bring your free tote bag and blanket, because, yes, that's included as well.
Consider setting up shop in nearby Rittenhouse Square or Love Park.
When you get back, two fresh (and free) cocktails will be waiting for you. And if that isn't enough to relax you, then the hosted wine hour that happens every night from 5 to 6 p.m. might do the trick.
Hotel Palomar is located at 117 S. 17th St. in Philadelphia, about two hours from downtown D.C.
Use rate code PICNIC or by calling (888) 725-1778. Valid for stays from now through Sept. 2.
