The Sheraton University City:
Through special arrangements made by IRCS on behalf of the workshop, the Sheraton University City will be offering discounted rates to workshop participants. The Sheraton is located at 36th & Chestnut Streets, just two blocks from IRCS. Workshop participants may reserve rooms at a discounted rate of US$99.00 per night (single or double, taxes and service charges not included).
NOTE: While it is possible to make reservations on-line from the Sheraton website, the special workshop rate only applies to reservations made by fax or phone. Please mention Linguistic Exploration Workshop when faxing/calling to make your reservations. Space may be limited at the hotel, so please try to make your arrangements as soon as possible.

The most cost-effective way is to take an Airport Shuttle Service. When you get to the airport, go to one of the Centralized Ground Transportation Counters in the baggage claim area where there will be a selection of shuttle services to choose from. The Sheraton University Hotel suggests the Lady Liberty Shuttle Service (tel. no.: 215-724-8888), which charges $8 for a one-way trip from the Airport to the hotel, or to a destination around the U.Penn campus. Dial '27' using the free phone at the Ground Transportation counter to arrange for a Lady Liberty shuttle, or check at the counter for other available shuttles.
A cab ride from the Airport to the Sheraton or the U.Penn campus costs a flat rate of $20. Taxi dispatch is available 24 hours a day.
