Located between Dallas and Fort Worth, the city of Arlington is one of the main entertainment hubs of North Texas. After all, it’s home to Six Flags Over Texas, Hurricane Harbor, and two major sports stadiums: Globe Life Field (for baseball’s Texas Rangers) and AT&T Stadium, the home turf of the Dallas Cowboys. The stadiums, along with neighboring food-and-entertainment complex called Texas Live!, also host plenty of local and big-name touring music acts. Staying near AT&T Stadium and the rest of the Arlington Entertainment District is easy, given the wealth of popular chain hotels in the area. Some offer luxury perks, such as steakhouses and swim-up bars, while others offer crowd-pleasers like free breakfast. Here are the best hotels near AT&T Stadium.

Live! by Loews – Arlington, Texas (1600 E Randol Mill Rd.; 682- 277-4911) Arlington

This 300-room Loews sits in the heart of the Texas Live! area, putting you a short walk from AT&T Stadium as well as the soccer-friendly Choctaw Stadium and the competitive-gaming Esports Stadium. Travel+Leisure calls the Loews “a stylish place” that “often keeps the party going after the show ends with a lively lobby bar, multiple large-screen TVs, and a live band.” One Tripadvisor user likes that there’s “lots to do for the whole family. Hotel is right beside the baseball stadium and a short walk to the Dallas football stadium. The infinity pool is beautiful and has a swim up bar. Music is loud until 11 p.m., so if you need sleep, ask for the quiet side of the hotel.”   >> Book this hotel for less

Just two miles from AT&T, the hotel also “offers the trolley to the parks and to the ball games, run by the city.” Some online reviewers bemoan the lack of a free breakfast, but a Google reviewer applauds the good service. “Everyone was super-friendly from front desk, to bar, and anywhere else.

Free parking at the hotel with plenty of spots.”   >> Book this hotel for less
