Subject: Philadelphia airport questions

I hope that we can get some help for driving to, parking at, and driving from the Philadelphia Airport.

On a Wednesday evening at 6pm, we depart Philadelphia to Paris. We are driving from Pittsburgh to the Philadelphia airport (hard to explain, but we are putting Paris in the middle of an East Coast, USA road trip).

I would like some information about parking at the Philadelphia airport. It has been discussed that many hotels have a free parking option, and we would consider staying the night before at the airport to get this option. Does anyone have any information on such a hotel, or an idea of where to search for one?

Also parking lot information at the airport itself would be helpful.

Finally, we will drive from the Phila. airport to lower Manhattan, and all tips will be appreciated.

Thanks, Debbie in Pittsburgh
