Getting to the Hotel

From the Airport

The Philadelphia International Airport is the closest major airport to the conference.


The Sheraton works with the Lady Liberty shuttle service, which provides shuttles from the airport for $10. It is easiest to call them directly to schedule a pick up; their phone number is +1-215-724-8888 and there are kiosks at baggage claim that connect directly to the shuttle company. To return to the airport, the hotel's Front Desk or Concierge can assist with shuttle reservations.

Public Transport

Trains depart every 30 mins from the airport towards Center City, which costs $8. However, this line does not go directly to the hotel, so you will need to transfer (including another $2.25 fare) to the Market-Frankford Line (MFL) at the Market & 11th (Jefferson) Station. Take th MFL eastbound towards Frankford to 2nd Street Station. The hotel is a two block walk from 2nd St Station.

The Independence Pass can be bought on the train from the airport and will be good for the entire day.


For rates to and from the airport as well as general taxi info, see the Philadelphia International Airport taxi information page.

See more transportation options on Google Maps.

From 30th St Station (Amtrak)

In 30th street station, follow the signs for the Market Frankford Line (MFL). Take the MFL Eastbound, towards Frankford, to 2nd St Station. The hotel is a two block walk from the station.

Taxis are also ready available at the station. Expect a fare of about $7.50
