Hotels and Gasoline for Family Weekend:
Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by Hurricane Sandy. For those who are able to travel to Allentown for Family Weekend, please rest assured that as of Friday there is plenty of gasoline in the Lehigh Valley and there are not a lot of long lines. A quick sample of open gas stations near the College this morning:
Shell - Cedar Crest and 22
Shell - Tilghman and 20th Street
Hess - Tilghman and 20th Street
Exxon - Tilghman and 15th Street
MacArthur Road past the Mall also has power as do several places along Airport Road.
I am sure there are plenty more, but you can rest assured that we have open gas stations in the Lehigh Valley.
Hotel rooms are in short supply as many do not have power and those that do have been booked by people without power, but the Holiday Inn (I78/Route 100), Rodeway Inn and the ones near Airport Road seem to be okay (Staybridge, Courtyard, Fairfield Inn, Residence Inn). We are in contact with Discover Lehigh Valley and are trying to get a full list of hotels with availability. If we get that list, we will distribute it as soon as possible.
