I wouldn't buy a parking pass unless you plan on tailgating. I believe you could walk from the Hilton but it's a little bit of a hike. Depends on weather. I've walked all the way from the Marriott which I think is further and it's about 30 minute walk. Did it in the snow for the AFC championship game last year. You can also park in the 6th St. garage for $5, which is a little closer. Still probably a 15 minute walk.

Parking passes close to the stadium will be $60 and up for red. And $100 and up for Gold.

Also, check with the Hilton as they may do a shuttle for a few bucks.

This will also be my first steelers game and we are also staying at the Hilton. Can't wait, I know parking at the Hilton is 25 bucks or so.

Tailgate lots open 5 hours before game time. I would take a taxi to Red Lot 6 across from PNC Park (Taxi driver will know) at 11am. Go under the overpass where the first tailgaters congregate and start drinking early. Introduce yourself and you'll be given all the beer and food you can handle. Take a little something if you feel weird about that. But everyone there will be really cool. After the game, taxi will be near impossible so I would go to Bettis' or any one of those bars and wait until the crowd in the streets clear out a little. you might be able to get a taxi an hour or two after the game. Or the Hilton might offer a shuttle. If you have to walk it, be ready for it to be cccccooooollldd going across the bridge.

There are a few parking garages around. You will not need a pass.

For Tailgate lots, yes you will need a pass. Otherwise, you can park in a garage for a fee.
