DNC: Last-Minute Philly Rentals for the Democratic National Convention

From $300 to $2,500 per night

We’re less than one month away from the Democratic National Convention, which will take place from July 25 to 28. But never fear: If you haven’t snagged a hotel room or a rental for the week, there are still some places up for grabs. These five rentals are close to the Broad Street Line, which offers a direct shot to the Wells Fargo Center where the convention will take place. But fair warning: It’ll cost you.

↑ For a spot close to the Broad Street Line, a direct shot to the Wells Fargo Center, check out this rental. The 2-bedroom, 1-bath home sleeps four and is located near East Passyunk Avenue, so you’ll always find a place to eat at the end of a long day at the convention. $300/night.

↑ This spacious rental will put you in the heart of Center City at Broad and South streets, so you’ll be right in the middle of all the DNC action, and not far from the Broad Street Mural. It features 20-foot ceilings and sleeps six. $399/night.

↑ Over around Point Breeze, this rowhome sleeps six and features two bedrooms and 2.5 baths. There’s also plenty of outdoor space, with a backyard patio and a roof deck. Its location doesn’t put you far from the Broad Street Line and Center City, either. The standard rate is $399/night, but for DNC week it’s $599 nightly.

↑ Over in Queen Village, this luxurious townhouse sleeps six and features three bedrooms and 2.5 baths. It’s located right between the Broad Street Line and I-95 for folks who plan to drive to the convention (though we don’t recommend it). $1,500/night.

↑ This massive rental is in Old City, so it’s not at all walking distance to the actual DNC, despite what it’s listing says. But you will be close to all of the DNC-related activities happening in the historic district throughout the week. And with five bedrooms and six baths, this home is very ideal for big groups. $2,500/night.
