Where to Stay

If your child will be staying overnight at the Hospital, in most cases we encourage one parent or guardian to stay with them in a bedside sleep chair or sofa. Read more detailed visitor guidelines.

If you're traveling to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) from a distance, your family may need a local place to stay for a few days or longer. Several Philadelphia-area hotels have indicated their intention to adhere to COVID-19 safety precautions, as outlined in the American Hotel and Lodging Association SafeStay™ Initiative.

Many hotels also provide additional services to CHOP families, including discounted rates with no cancellation-fee, a dedicated floor for CHOP families and easily accessible parking. For help deciding which accommodations will best suit your family’s needs, please contact the Family Hospitality team at 215-590-2499 or familyhospitality@email.chop.edu.
