hotel at Phila airport where we can leave car for a week?

Is this possible to do? I.e. pay for a room for a night and leave the car there for a week?
Can one do that in reverse order? I.e. leave car for a week and stay on return rather than before flight? (We'll be returning after midnight.)
Thanks for help on this.
(Also: If this is possible, can you tell me which is the "best" hotel in the area? Especially which is likeliest to be most quiet and restful?)

We have done that many times over the years but recently most seem to require that you spend the night then leave your car rather than spending the night on your return. However, last fall, we stayed at the Hampton Inn Philadelphia International Airport Hotel at 8600 Bartram Ave. for less than $200 per night including 2 weeks parking. It is convenient to the airport, has a free shuttle to and from the airport and there is a Ruby Tuesday's adjacent to the hotel. It was a quiet and convenient location.

Although we haven't used it in Philadelphia, we've used the website www.parksleepfly.com in other places to find hotels that let you park there while on vacation.

In other cities we found that by calling hotel we could often work out a deal with the hotel, even if not listed on above mentioned website or hotel's own site. Annoying since it requires multiple phone calls. Co-travelers used above website for Miami prior to cruise and even though hotel was listed as having such an option, when they got there they were told they had not done that in years - so I would still call hotel directly even if you find a hotel that you think will let you do this.

Katie: Just learned that you were very fortunate indeed. A review of that hotel talks about horrendous bedbugs, etc. Glad you missed that!
Does anyone happen to know the 4 Points Sheraton at the airport? They seem to have an ok fly-park rate, but I know nothing about the place.
Thanks!

poss: Thanks for the information about the Hampton Inn. We didn't have any problems in Oct. but certainly won't plan on staying there again.

In the past, we have left our car at the Ramada Inn on Essington Avenue. Don't know what the rate is now, but the huge parking area is gated. And great/quick van service to and from the airport.
