Where to Stay

Options for parents and families to stay overnight

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.

If you're traveling to Children's Hospital from a distance, your family members may need a local place to stay for a few days or longer. You have many options available. Our Family Hospitality team is here to help you find the right place to fit your needs. Please contact the Family Hospitality team at 215-590-2499 or email us at familyhospitality@email.chop.edu. You can also stop by the Center for Families to find someone to assist you.

In the lists below, we have gathered additional information about some of the available options for your convenience.
