Hotel Information:

HOP chose the Radisson Plaza-Warwick Hotel as the venue for Let Freedom Ring! Located in the historic Rittenhouse Square area of Philadelphia and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the hotel was originally constructed in 1926. With 545 rooms, the hotel is large enough for our collectors, yet it retains a feeling of intimacy. The staff has gone out of their way to work with the event committee. The rooms are more than comfortable and the food is outstanding! It is close to a wide variety of shopping and restaurants as well as public transportation to historic sites.

Radisson Plaza - Warwick Hotel

Attendees made their own reservations with the hotel. The hotel blocked enough rooms for our event; however, reservations needed to be complere prior to September 9, 2004. You needed to make your reservations early, to insure you get the room type and size you needed. Room rates started at $117 per night for 1-2 people. The room rate was also available for three days prior to and three days after the event, so attendees could take advantage of all that Philadelphia had to offer. The hotel is pet friendly and will accept small pets. A $50 non-refundable deposit was required. Guests with pets are assigned rooms on the "pet" floor.

The hotel had established a Web page just for the event where you could obtain additional information about the hotel (including a virtual tour) and make your reservations online.
