Home to the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs, Arrowhead Stadium is happily located near the intersection of I-70 and I-435, a bustling area with multiple hotel options ready and waiting for fans. Skip the parking nightmare by reserving a room at one of these establishments to maximize game day enjoyment. Your fellow travelers will thank you.

Holiday Inn Kansas City SE

Located just over a half mile from Arrowhead Stadium on 39th Street, the Holiday Inn Kansas City Southeast allows football families to double their fun: stay to catch a game and enjoy the on-site water park before you leave. The hotel's 55,000-square-foot CoCo Key Water Resort provides endless fun, whether or not the Chiefs rush to victory. Book a water park package to enjoy this amenity at no cost or purchase a day pass once on-site for an additional fee. A 24-hour fitness room, available to all guests, is another nice perk.

Clarion Hotel Sports Complex

A short walk from Arrowhead, the Clarion Hotel Sports Complex is one of the closest overnight options. With free guest parking and free wireless Internet access, fans will save both money and time staying at this property. Post-game, stop in at the hotel's on-site pub, Paddy O'Quigley's, to celebrate a crushing victory or soothe disappointment. If you prefer to bring your own food and beverages, ask for a room with a microwave and refrigerator, available on request.

Drury Inn Suites Stadium Kansas City

With its trademark "5:30 Kickback" free hot food and cold beverage service plus QUIKSTART, free hot breakfasts complete with Belgian waffles, eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy served until 10 a.m., Drury Inn Suites Stadium is an option for fans interested in saving their food budget for the stadium. About a half mile from Arrowhead, this property caters to football fans with free gated parking and two-room suites for families or large groups. Free wireless Internet access and flat-panel LCD TVs for pre-game prep, plus 60 minutes of free long distance phone service to call nonbelievers and rub in the game-winning touchdown, complete the package.

Holiday Inn Express Kansas City Sports Complex

Located a bit farther out than the Holiday Inn Kansas City SE yet still within a few miles of Arrowhead Stadium, this property is an affordable option for sports fans. All rooms feature refrigerators, and most include microwaves; and while this Holiday Inn lacks an on-site water park, it does feature an indoor swimming pool and whirlpool. A complimentary hot buffet breakfast is offered to all guests. Parking is available, but a fee may be charged. Check with the hotel directly for current prices.
