Philadelphia: Get a room -- and tickets to Springsteen exhibition

Los Angeles Times Daily Travel & Deal blogger

You’ve been to Bruce Springsteen concerts, but have you seen the outfit he wore on the cover of “Born in the U.S.A.” or the 1960 Corvette he bought after the smash success of “Born to Run”? Both are part of a Boss-centric museum exhibition in Philadelphia. You can get two tickets to the exhibition with a room at Loews Philadelphia Hotel starting at $199 a night. 

The deal: The package includes combination tickets to the National Constitution Center, which means you get to see “From Asbury Park to the Promised Land: The Life and Music of Bruce Springsteen” and other shows such as “The Story of We the People” and the theatrical “Freedom Rising.” OK, this deal might sound a tad 1-percentish for populist Springsteen fans, but I like the savings on tickets (see below) and the hotel’s Market Street location, which is close to downtown landmarks.

When: The offer is good through Sept. 3 (when the exhibition ends).

Tested: I found availability online for the package on the Fourth of July, an ideal day to be in Philadelphia to celebrate Independence Day and the Boss. The room price of $199 plus tax is a little higher than the best available rate, but you save about $35 on the price of combo tickets ($27 each) with the package.
