When the fans return to Glendale for the big game, Glendale City Manager Kevin Phelps says they will see a lot more new buildings and development since 2015. Many of those buildings include hotels. “People were coming to the Super Bowl, because the lack of available rooms, were staying in other parts of the Valley,” said Phelps.
During the 2015 Super Bowl, Glendale had seven hotels near the stadium. Now there will be up to 12 hotels for next year’s Super Bowl. As for the number of hotel rooms- a little more than a thousand were within walking distance of State Farm Stadium in 2015. However, that number will jump to nearly 1600 rooms for the upcoming Super Bowl and an estimated 3500 rooms by 2024.
