Snagging a room for a decent rate on game day in Green Bay can be a challenge, especially one that offers amenities such as a free shuttle to Lambeau Field or an indoor pool (ideal for soaking after standing in the cold for hours). A few are even within a 15-minute walk. Pro tip: even if your hotel doesn’t offer a shuttle to Lambeau Field, it could be on this free shuttle route. A mix of chain and indie hotels (37 in all) are on the route.
Proximity to Lambeau Field: Across the street (0.2 miles)
Why it’s great: Want a little post-game pampering? At the spa at the 144-room Lodge Kohler (yep, the plumbing pros), some treatments involve Kohler’s custom Vichy shower, which is an ideal way to relax after cheering on the Packers in the cold. For a bite to eat, head to Taverne in the Sky where your meal is paired with windows framing the stadium view. And there are so many framed black-and-white photos of past Packers players and coaches that this is practically a mini museum. “The Packers Home Game” package (from $1,635) includes two nights, a ticket to the game, breakfasts, and one dinner.
Hotel Northland, Autograph Collection
Proximity to Lambeau Field: 2.6 miles
Why it’s great: As Green Bay’s newest boutique hotel, and part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection, this 160-room property reopened in February 2019. Inspired by its 1924 roots, there’s a lot of glam and edge, as seen in the two restaurants (a sports bar called Poke the Bear, stocked with Packers memorabilia; and the elegant Walnut Room for dinner) plus crisp blue-and-white décor.
Country Inn & Suites by Radisson, Green Bay North
Proximity to Lambeau Field: 9 miles
Why it’s great: Check into this 63-room hotel, and then grab a copy of the schedule for the free shuttle to Lambeau Field so you can plan your game day. Other perks include the indoor pool and hot tub, and free breakfast daily. There’s also a lending library in case you want to cozy up with a book, free Wi-Fi, and complimentary coffee and tea service (plus no-cost cookies!) for a “home away from home” vibe. Like many other Green Bay hotels, this is a dog-friendly property.
SpringHill Suites by Marriott Green Bay
Proximity to Lambeau Field: 0.6 miles
Why it’s great: Consistent with the SpringHill Suites brand, every guest at this hotel, which opened in 2016, gets a free breakfast and it’s far from your typical continental spread—instead, you get just-out-of-the-oven croissants, Greek yogurt, waffles, and eggs. This is a great hotel for families, as all 127 rooms have a pull-out sofa bed. (Ask for one with a view of Lambeau Field.) A mini-fridge and microwave are also in each room. Only small pets are allowed. An indoor pool is a nice perk during the cooler months and instant fun for little ones.
Astor House Bed & Breakfast
Proximity to Lambeau Field: 3.4 miles
Why it’s great: Given that Lambeau is a wildly popular wedding site and many couples have gotten engaged at a Packers game, it’s no surprise that this cozy little bed and breakfast with only five rooms is a hot stay on Game Day. Built in 1888, each of the rooms features a private bath, and some have a gas fireplace. And when you’re ready to go to the game, simply grab the QB Sneak Peak shuttle, right from this bed and breakfast. This inn is all about comfort: breakfast can be served in the parlor or delivered to your room.
Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham Green Bay
Proximity to Lambeau Field: 4.6 miles
Why it’s great: Guests at this 96-room hotel receive access to loaner bicycles to further explore Green Bay or even bike to the stadium. Each bike has a basket should you want to pack a picnic or scoop up some groceries at a nearby market. The outdoor pool here is a rare amenity in Green Bay, so take advantage if the weather is warm. And because this hotel also offers a free airport shuttle, if you’re flying in for the game, you don’t need a car at all during your stay. Enjoy the complimentary hot buffet breakfast, or skip right to the tailgating by whipping up game day snacks in the full-sized kitchen in your room.
Best Western Green Bay Inn Conference Center
Proximity to Lambeau Field: 0.4 miles
Why it’s great: There are several reasons why this 145-room hotel gets high marks. It’s dog-friendly, it's a short walk to the stadium for Packers games, all rates include a free hot breakfast, and a restaurant and cocktail lounge onsite mean you don’t have to leave for other meals if you don’t want to. Also, an indoor pool is great fun for families or a nice amenity once the weather turns cool.
Kress Inn, Ascend Hotel Collection
Proximity to Lambeau Field: 3.8 miles
Why it’s great: Included on the Quick Slant shuttle route to Lambeau Field (free to ride), the 46-room Kress Inn in nearby De Pere opened 18 years ago and is owned by St. Norbert College. Each room is suite-sized (with a microwave and fridge), and the rate includes a welcome reception with wine and cheese (Monday through Thursday evenings). Snug in downtown historic De Pere, you’re also along the river and are handed fresh-out-of-the-oven cookies upon check-in. Rates include a complimentary hot breakfast to get your day started on a high note.
