Sorry if there is already another thread on this, but can a woopigger help me with some hotel suggestions for the night of the game?

Seriously?  There are like 100 hotels in about a 5 mile range of Cowboys Stadium.  What's your price range?  How close do you wanna be?  Do you require a Denny's next door?

Alright look here you freaky little ginger, I asked nicely!!  Price range is less than $150.00 for the night, and I just don't want it to be in a seedy neighborhood.

Don't worry about location, the city uses all that tax money to keep the poor folk out.

Well, less than $150 a night for that weekend NEAR the stadium is going to be pretty tight.  We usually stay in the Hilton Garden Inn for the SWC each year but they're wanting $249 a night for that weekend.  And it's probably sold out by now.  I honestly don't think you can go wrong in that area.  We've stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott too.  It's a little older hotel but not bad.  There aren't a lot of seedy areas near the stadium from what I remember but then again, I haven't lived there.  We're actually gonna stay all the way up in Grapevine because we're not arriving til the day of the game and are going to do some shopping and etc. that Saturday at Grapevine Mills Mall and Bass Pro Shops.

I saw some in Grapevine as well, how far is that from the stadium?

I will not say GOOGLE MOTHERTRUCKER but I'll say this:  It's about 15 miles directly north on 360.  MINUS heavy traffic, it's really only about a 20 minute drive from Grapevine to the stadium.  With traffic, well, a drive from just about ANYWHERE will take longer than 20 minutes to get to the stadium.  Even a drive from a mile away. 

After the SWC, we drove up to the Gaylord Texan to hang out in their sports bar which is by far one of the best I've ever been to.  Took me right at 30 minutes to get there, get parked, and get inside to the bar.  Of course, we did wait for about 30 minutes after the game to leave the parking lot at CS.

The technical term is "a fricking hike".  That's some traffic to go through, too.

Stayed at a Holiday Inn Express in Garland for the 2000 Cotton Bowl & it was $50/night.  Pretty nice and filled with Hogs fans.

I can tell you what I do and me and the family make multiple trips to Arlington each year. I always get a hotel in Irving because the prices are much more reasonable especially on weekends with DFW being there. Travel is very easy as it typically takes only 15-20 minutes to get to the stadium.

FYI - traffic south of Grapevine and north of DFW airport has been a clusterfuck of epic proportions recently due to road work. This is where 635,121 and 114 meet. Even 183 south of the airport is under heavy work.
Not saying it will be a big problem in 4 weeks but I would definitely check the ebays for some real time traffic updates before rolling thru that part of town or plan an extra 45 minutes on to drive to be safe.

Does the team still stay at the Hyatt?

I stayed there last Cotton Bowl and it was fine, but i think it's a good hike from the new venue.  I started a thread about getting burgalized right before that trip.  I am laying in wait for them motherfuckers this year.

They moved the game 20 miles West, though.

You think I'm shitting you, but you can go on here, select the part of the city you want, and get a 4 star for less than $100, guaranteed (by me, not priceline).  Hotwire works well, too.  Hotels that partner with these places have to keep some available for these sites, even if they go cheaper.

The current 121 DFW Connector in Grapevine is the end all be all of DFW traffic clusterfucks right now to be avoided at all costs.

If you want to stay there to hit up Grapevine Mills, that's cool.  I do like the Outlet Mall in Allen way better and the new Bass Pro Shop on Lake Ray Hubbard is pretty kickass.  Just be aware that it can take you 30 or 45 min to get through that mess.

I might even get a map and cut through Colleyville and take Industrial through Euless and it turns into Collins in Arlington and takes you to the stadium.  This is the way all of the people I work with in Arlington get home to Colleyville/Grapevine/Southlake.

There are plenty of good hotel deals in Irving and south Arlington (both 10 min away) that will be very reasonable and $150 should easily fit in that.  Just not the immediate stadium vicinity in North Arlington.  You can get from downtown Dallas or Ft Worth to the stadium in 15-20 min as well.

Any tips on last minute reservations?  Or, the Anatole seems to have rooms left, is it easy enough to grab a shuttle or cab from there?

...

So if I'm swinging west on Geo. Bush, then south toward Grand Parie on Bush/161, I'll never have to deal with this "121 DFW Connector" mess, si?

Also, my highly placed sources in Sunnyvale tell me that Geo. Bush is now open at I-30 at the Lake.  If true, that should shave a few minutes for those coming into town on I-30 and staying in the Richardson, Addison, Plano area.

Correct.

Bush/161 is the greatest thing that ever happened for those going from North Dallas and Plano to Arlington and vice versa. No traffic at all, smooth as can be.  They are still finishing the interchange with I-30 but there's no delays there.

On the latter, yes it definitely would save a little time vs going 635.
