Hotels the Steelers stay in
 
I tried a search on this forum, the Steelers home page, and a google search. Does anyone have a list of the hotels the Steelers stay in while traveling on the road? This use to be printed in the media guide but I have'nt gotten one of those in about 10 years.
I'm looking at The Kansas City game. I'm sure they're already packed, I'm sure I'm not the first person to have thought of this :laughing:
Thanks in advance!

I could be wrong, but I doubt any NFL teams make that information public - and I'm guessing they may ask those who would know (local and national reporters) to not reveal where they stay. Seems like that would be an open invitation for opposing home town fans to cause problems, creating a big distraction.

This probably doesnt help you but the Opposing teams that play the Pirates stay in the William Penn Hotel in downtown. I stayed there and all of the Reds were there.

Well, I know when they were here in Nashville for the game last Dec, they stayed at the Renaissance Hotel. I found out they were coming from a friend who works concierge at a nearby hotel. I happened to be downtown, and got to see them all unload off the buses, including Mr Rooney! Some of them off the first bus walked directly in front of me - like I could reach out and touch! LOL Unfortunately, they didn;t sign any autographs that day but it was still awesome!

On the road, I don't know, but I do know the team stays at the Hilton in downtown Pittsburgh for home games. I guess the coaches like to keep them together and under control the night before.

The hilton in Pittsburgh is great, a couple of years ago I stayed and Mean Joe Green was having a beer and reading the news paper in the lobby. Cowher made them check in at 4 pm on Sat before a 1 pm kickoff on Sunday. They would have the team meal and walk thru meetings and some would come down to the lobby and see the fans at night. Well worth the $200 per night. Not sure if Tomlin is still doing it?

Yeah, Tomlin's still doing it...at least he was as of last season. I stayed in the Hilton the weekend of the Colts game and a bunch of fans were gathered outside for the team's arrival.
