PHILADELPHIA, PA - July 12, 2008 - With "Staycations" being the buzzword for Summer 2008 travel - meaning Americans are vacationing either at or close to home - the Philadelphia Marriott West is offering an affordable, overnight getaway package enabling guests to stay in luxurious Philadelphia Marriott accommodations, park for free, and enjoy a three-course dinner at the legendary Shula's 347 steakhouse which is located right in the hotel.

According to General Manager, Mike Rodden, "very often, people who live within an hour or so of the Main Line area never take the time to experience the sights, sounds, and tastes that are right in their own backyard. With our package, guests can enjoy a relaxing stay in one of our deluxe guest rooms, go for a swim in our indoor pool, sightsee in Philadelphia which is just 11 miles away, shop in King of Prussia which is just over 4 miles away, and then have a superb dinner at Shula's Steakhouse! It's the perfect "Staycation" for 2008!"

Shula's 347 steakhouse is owned by legendary NFL coach Don Shula, who now has a chain of incredibly popular and critically acclaimed steakhouses across the U.S.

Called "The Food is Almost as Legendary as the Name at Shula's 347 in Pennsylvania," the Philadelphia vacation package includes the following:
Deluxe Marriott accommodations for one night;
Overnight Parking;
Dinner for two at Shula's 347 steakhouse including one appetizer, two entrees, and two desserts.

The getaway package is priced from $234 to $274 depending upon accommodations selected and dates of travel, and is valid through December 31, 2008 (subject to availability).

Shula's 347 Grill restaurant offers an a la carte menu for lunch and dinner, ample seating for 200, and two private dining options. Named after the legendary Hall of Fame Coach Don Shula, this Philadelphia restaurant features everything from gourmet salads to certified Shula Cut steaks, and a full-service Marriott breakfast.

But when it comes to beef, Shula's is the expert. Shula's unique partnership allows them to own, breed, and exclusively serve the world's finest beef, the Premium Black Angus Beef® brand. Their custom center cuts of Premium Black Angus Beef® accompanied by their aging process make up the award-winning SHULA CUTS, which are the best beef money can buy.
