As it comes to all of our guides about hotels near the stadiums, it would be easy for us to list the five hotels close to Heinz Field and be done with it. Unfortunately, that is a bit boring (and a bit impractical even) as the Pittsburgh hotel scene offers a number of options for those coming in for a Steelers game.
So if you are looking for hotels near Heinz Field, we have a few options for you, both in terms of their location, amenities, and practicality!
Note: A few hotels featured in this guide are found in the North Shore right next to Heinz Field. Traffic becomes pretty crazy on game days, so if you are coming in just before the start of a game or departing shortly thereafter, plan for significant delays.
Hyatt Place North Shore
If being as close as possible to Heinz Field is your concern, then staying at Hyatt Place Pittsburgh-North Shore is a must. This hotel is just over one block away from the stadium and is the closest option for those who value accessibility the most. The hotel also features modern rooms and a short walk to many of the top restaurants on the North Shore!
Things to consider: Overnight parking is $22/day. The lots around the hotel are often full of tailgaters during games.

SpringHill Suites North Shore
For those who want a spacious room and to still have a location on the North Shore, the SpringHill Suites North Shore is a great option. This hotel is near Heinz Field, but is about two blocks further away (and is just across the street from PNC Park- a great option for games at either stadium). The amenities here are fairly average, but make up for it with extra space and select rooms having views of PNC Park.
Things to consider: Overnight parking is $27/day and the shuttle is complimentary (on 30-minute intervals). The walls are also fairly thin here- both for neighboring rooms and outside events.

Drury Plaza Downtown
The Drury Plaza Pittsburgh surprised us with its modern amenities and mostly quiet downtown location just on the edge of the popular Cultural District. This hotel is in a former Federal Reserve building and maintains many of the bank charms in its restaurant area and the conference rooms in the basement are housed in the former vault (complete with original doors)! This is a great option for those who wish to stay downtown for a game and want to have access to the Cultural District's great restaurant scene.
Things to Consider: Parking is $29 per night with in and out privileges. The hotel is a 30-minute walk from the stadium but the Steel Plaza T stop is a few blocks away and is free to Heinz Field (generally will get you there in 15 minutes).

The Renaissance Hotel
For those who want a higher-end hotel while still being somewhat close to Heinz Field, The Renaissance Hotel is one of our favorites. This one is located in downtown Pittsburgh and is just a short walk from Heinz Field (about 20 minutes) and many of best Pittsburgh restaurants downtown. The hotel is on the luxury variety and offers modern rooms with many comfortable amenities and Pittsburgh accents. As a bonus, many of the rooms here look over the Allegheny River and PNC Park, giving an extra perk for those staying at this one during a game.
Things to consider: Valet parking is $37 at the hotel and approximately $13 at a garage next door with no in and out privileges. Not all hotel rooms have views.

Sheraton Station Square
For both of our hotel guides for the North Shore stadiums, we recommend the Sheraton Station Square as a viable option. Why? While its South Side location is a bit odd, it has great accessibility to the stadiums thanks to the T station nearby and The Gateway Clipper shuttle service that runs on both game days (both at a charge). Add on the fact that one of the city's Inclines is just a few steps away, downtown is accessible by the Smithfield Street Bridge, and that river view rooms have a stunning city view, and, well, you can see why we really like this hotel!
Things to consider: Parking is $25 per day. The T and Gateway Clipper charge for traveling to the stadium; however, if you walk across the Smithfield Street Bridge plus a few blocks to the First Avenue station you can take the T to the stadium for free (when you cross the Monongahela is when fees kick in).

Looking for a cheaper hotel with shuttle options? We like the Hampton Inn Green Tree which is in close proximity to the stadiums and has shuttle options on game days (as always, we recommend reconfirming this before booking as logistics can always change)!

For frequently asked questions about staying in Pittsburgh for a Steelers game, check out the following!
Where are the best places to stay near Heinz Field?
Visitors who come in for a Steelers game often find themselves staying in the North Shore, downtown Pittsburgh, or at Station Square and taking the Gateway Clipper transfer to the stadium.
Is it recommended to stay in the North Side?
The North Side is a great part of Pittsburgh for visitors; however, we do not recommend driving into the city (or leaving) on a game day as traffic can be quite bad around the stadium. If you have to arrive or depart on game day itself, staying downtown may be a better idea.
Is parking available near Heinz Field?
Yes, there are many surface lots in the North Side around Heinz Field. They charge fairly high surge pricing on game days upwards of $30-$50 or more. Neighborhood streets near the stadium have stiff fines for permit violations on game days as well.
