Philadelphia, PA Hotels

What better place to celebrate the Fourth of July than Philadelphia, the city where America’s independence was truly born and home to Benjamin Franklin and the Liberty Bell? Visitors can retrace the steps of our founding fathers as they walk through Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was signed. The City of Brotherly love is known today for not only its rich history, but great art, shopping and food. Hotels.com customers can save an additional 10% off each night of their stay at the four-star Westin Philadelphia, a hotel offering modern accommodations and central location. Guests save 10% when staying one night, 20% for two nights, and 30% for three nights. Hotel rates start at $93 a night.

Washington, D.C. Hotels

A long weekend is plenty of time for a quick history lesson at our nation’s capital, where visitors can read the United States Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and Bill of Rights at the National Archives and perhaps visit a president or two, or their monuments, at least. Hotels.com guests can save 30% when spending their July 4th weekend at The Hotel Monaco, an elegant luxury boutique hotel, located on historic King Street in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. Just minutes away from Washington, D.C., guests can explore the city’s incredible wealth of history and today’s vibrant capital. With rooms starting at $104 a night, the hotel is just steps from charming shops, great restaurants and top historic and cultural attractions.
