More About Hotels near Pepsi Center...

Balancing Budget and Quality near the PepsiCenter

Located northeast of Denver's city center, the Pepsi Center is nearby to a number of high-quality hotels without the high pricetag. Over a dozen hotels lie within two miles of the Pepsi Center, with the best bet for your budget coming during the week or leading into our out of a gameday weekend.

In addition to a reasonable price (averaging between $100 and $150 during winter), many properties offer free parking and free wifi. High-quality three-star hotels around the Pepsi Center include the Residence Inn by Marriott Denver Downtown, and the Townplace Suites Denver Downtown.

Cheap Motel Options near the PepsiCenter

For those who want the budget experience, Denver is happy to offer you great hotel stays at an ice-cold low price. Motels typically run less that $100 per night around the Pepsi Center during the height of hockey season. Because they come at such a low price, you may find motels get booked up faster than hotels - especially during weekends when all three of Denver's professional teams are competing for fans' attention.

Those who don't mind staying outside of downtown Denver can find deals well under $75 throughout the winter along Interstate 25 north of Denver, and in east Denver near Stapleton. Although they are within 10 miles, it may take up to a half hour to get to the Pepsi Center by ground transportation.

There's No Place Like Home Around the PepsiCenter

Fans looking for all the amenities of home will find a number of home rentals available. A high number of Denver homes open and awaiting your stay in the Mile High City. Those who want to stay as close to center ice as possible should seek rentals in the LoHi District north of the Pepsi Center, or the Santa Fé Arts District due south.

Home rentals through HomeAway and AirBNB are scattered throughout Central and Eastern Denver, but within close proximity of public transportation. Fans can expect to pay the same as a mid-level hotel (around $150 per night) when choosing a home rental. While this is a great option for your stay, expect to add at least a week of lead time to contact hosts and secure arrangements you plan on renting a home instead of a hotel room for your stay.

Getting Around Denver and The PepsiCenter

Navigating Denver and the Pepsi Center is an easy task, both day and night. Before and after home games, the Denver RTD runs both bus and light rail transportation straight from the Pepsi Center arena throughout Denver.

Taxis are also accessible, especially before and after games at the Pepsi Center. Taxi fares run just over $2 per mile, and offer flat rates to the airport. Ride sharing services (like Uber and Lyft) are also commonly available, but their prices are dynamically based on demand.

Making the Most of Your Night at the PepsiCenter

As hockey season often runs concurrently with both the NFL and NBA schedule (with the Denver Nuggets also occupying the Pepsi Center), there can often be lots of conflict for attention near Denver's arenas. In addition to the Avalanche, the Pepsi Center also plays host to the dynamic Denver Nuggets.

Regardless of which team you're seeing, be sure you know what to expect when it comes to rooting on your team. Tickets for the Colorado Avalanche start around $21 per game (depending on the opponent), while tickets for the Denver Nuggets start around $15 per ticket. Although walk-up tickets are available for the Denver Nuggets, the best options are to purchase tickets in advance. If you want to wait and find the best deals, be sure to check out Scorebig for ticket deals for both the Avalanche and the Nuggets.

Because basketball features a smaller court, there are often more seats available for the Denver Nuggets as opposed to the Colorado Avalanche. With that, catching all the action is based on where you are sitting. Fans can find the best sight lines either close to the sidelines, or higher up in the arena. Some of the best seats for basketball are in the high 100-sections, or in the middle of the 200-section.

No matter which colors you wear to the Pepsi Center - Burgundy and Blue, or Blue and Gold - your money is best spent enjoying the game, not the hotel. With a little planning, you will have an experience that fits your budget perfectly.
