Default Hotel

My son and I are traveling from Utah to the Oct 25th game against the Vikings. I've been looking at hotels for a couple weeks and was wondering what the best area to stay in is? I've looked and there is obviously nothing available downtown so I need help as to what area to stay in PLEASE! We will most likely be taking a taxi to the stadium... Thanks!

A friend of mine told my you could get really good deals at the William Penn on Priceline. That's downtown so you could walk to the game.

I usually fly in for 1:00 games but when I stay overnight I stay near the airport (there are a lot of hotels near the Robinson Town Centre shopping area) and rent a car from Priceline. If you do 'Name your own price' you can usually get one for about $25 for the day -incld tax.

There is a Marriot across from PNC Park(Just down the road from Heinz Field)
Omni William Penn downtown.
There is a Radisson in Monroeville
Holiday Inn on the Parkway East.

Just some ideas.

Thanks for the replies, I've tried all of these hotels plus more near the stadium and they're ALL BOOKED! I booked a hotel by the airport but I'm going to still try and get something closer. Thanks again.

Try http://www.hamptoninn.com/en/hp/hote...tyhocn=PITMKHX

Its about 3 miles away from the game... but not downtown, so its a much better price.

It sits behind the convention center, which is about 3/4 of a mile from the stadium. You'll have to be on an upper floor if you want to see anything other than the roof of the convention center or maybe PNC Park. The rooms are nice, though.

Stayed at the Westin twice. The fish restaurant downstairs is excellent! It's a fairly good walk to the game.

For about the same price I've stayed at the Renaissance Hotel, just across the 6th St. Bridge. It's an easy walk to the game, has a nice breakfast buffet, and free pass to the health club next door. We had a great view of the river and the rooms were huge!
