                    Wells Fargo Center Nearby Hotels To Stay At

                    The Wells Fargo Center is located in the industrial area of Packer Park. There is not a whole lot of selection for walkable hotels near the arena.

                    In fact, there are only two hotels near the Wells Fargo Center:

                    1. Courtyard by Marriott Philadelphia South
                    2. Penrose Hotel

                    The Marriott comes with a high price premium, so budget-conscience travellers should look elsewhere.
