Mid-Atlantic - Best transport option from BWI to downtown Philly (flt lands ~11pm)
Oct 1, 10, 6:36 pm
Having never flow into BWI was not sure what our options are to get to downtown Philly hotel (Le Meridien).
We get in pretty late with our flight landing approx 11pm (WN from LAS).
Not sure we want to rent car and drive as we'll be pretty tired coming in from Vegas, esp as it looks like it will take at least 2 hours to drive - is that right?

Hmmm. I think you're arriving too late for Amtrak (looks like the latest train leaving BWI is at 10:30).
And you're right about a two hour drive to Philly. If you aren't looking forward to the drive that night, any chance you can just stay at the airport the night you arrive and then drive up the following morning?
I don't know that there are other public transportation options available to you but others more familiar with BWI will be along.

Is it possible to arrange a WN flight into PHL instead?
If not, it is indeed a 2 hour drive,but if you are arriving from the west coast,the time change could work in your favor and fatigue may not be a factor. It is an easier drive night(assuming no constructions delays).
I agree with the previous poster that if you choose not to drive, then staying near the airport(lots of options) and taking Amtrak the next day is a good choice.

Appreciate everyone's input and advise - Thank you!
Good point about the time change and having less traffic at night. Looks like we're driving - at least not doing it alone.
