Top Ten Most Convenient Hotels For NFL Fans
See If One of These Hotels is Perfect For Your Next NFL Road Trip
2014 NFL Season
Now that NFL season is in full swing, there are probably some last minute road trips in the works. If you’re gearing up to go see your team play in another city, you’ll need the necessities: tailgating gear (read: beer), game day apparel, and lodging. That last one is easier said than done in some cities. Today, we’re going to take a look at ten of the most convenient hotels for NFL fans around the country. Remember, these aren’t featured because they have the most luxurious linens or the most expensive mints on the pillows, but they are the best options for fans who want to be in the midst of all the action on any given Sunday.

1. The downtown Indianapolis Marriott is an excellent, mid-priced choice for fans who are traveling to Lucas Oil Stadium. Indy can get chilly during football season, but the best thing about this hotel? It’s connected via skyway to the convention center, which is connected to the Colts’ stadium. No coats necessary.
2. If you’re heading east to see the Colts’ longtime rivals, the New England Patriots, you should consider booking a room at the Boston Renaissance Patriot Place Hotel. This facility literally looks out on Gillette Stadium, plus it has an excellent on-site restaurant for diehard fans. Coats here, though, definitely necessary.
3. The Santa Clara, CA Hyatt Regency is the perfect choice for NFL fans who are headed to the San Francisco 49ers new Levi’s Stadium. This hotel offers free parking, early check-in for ticket holders, and a convenient location. You can walk to the stadium in just about 10 minutes, so go ahead with that 11:30 wake-up call.
4. Hotel 1000, located in Seattle Washington, is the ideal spot for fans who want to see CenturyLink Field up close (or from their hotel room windows, for that matter.) This modern, high-end facility is within easy walking distance of the stadium and other famous Seattle attractions.
5. The Sheraton Hotel in Arlington, TX is a great option for fans who have tickets to games at the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium. This 4 star hotel is conveniently located near the both the airport and Jerry World, though its probably a little far to walk to the game.
6. The downtown Cleveland Marriott is, quite frankly, the best available option for anyone heading to a Browns game. It’s within walking distance of the stadium and its located in a fairly safe area of the city. I don’t mean to be down on Cleveland, but a little extra precaution is never a bad thing.
7. While the Meadowlands is, of course, located relatively near all of the hotels that NYC has to offer, the Hampton Inn at the Meadowlands is actually the most conveniently located option for fans attending Jets or Giants games. Instead of dealing with game day traffic (which is hellish at best), you can walk to the stadium in just a few minutes from this facility.
8. The Coco Key Water Resort (owned by Holiday Inn) in Kansas City is a great option for Chiefs fans, especially those who have kids. This facility is located just a few minutes away from Arrowhead Stadium and features a 55,000 square foot indoor water park.
9. Titans fans (or, more accurately, Titans opponents’ fans) should seriously consider staying at the Ramada Limited at The Stadium (yes, that’s its real name) when they visit Nashvegas. This facility is located in downtown Nashville and is literally a hop, skip, and a jump away from the Titans’ home field.
10. The El Palacio Sports Hotel and Conference Center is an affordable, clean option for people traveling to Miami to watch Dolphins games at Sun Life Stadium. There’s nothing terribly exciting or distinctive about this facility, but it’s close to the stadium, which is the point of today’s list.
