State delegations get hotel assignments for DNC
The Democratic National Convention released a list of where each state's delegates will stay during the convention in July.
Area hotels will house about 6,000 delegates over the course of the convention July 25-28 at the Wells Fargo Center.
Fifty-seven state delegations were assigned to 26 hotels in Philadelphia and Valley Forge.
"The delegates do the work of the Convention and are our most important guests," Rev. Leah D. Daughtry, CEO of the DNCC said in a release. "We worked very hard to ensure that the majority of state delegations secured one of their top three hotel choices. Philadelphia is an excellent city for a Convention and it has a great array of top-notch hotel properties which will serve the delegates well next July."
State delegations use their hotels as a base of operations during the Convention week. It's where they hold breakfasts, receptions and press conferences.
Most interesting hotel to visit? I'd go with the Courtyard Landsdale where American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands will bunk.
No word yet on what kind of state-themed food or decor the hotels will provide.
