Where to stay in Green Bay?

Hi All! I have a few questions about hotels, prime locations, etc. in Green Bay. A friend of mine and I will be there for one night (Saturday) in mid-February. She is getting married and we will be bridesmaid dress shopping (if you have any suggestions for stores/boutiques, etc. all are welcome!!). She lives in Iron River, Michigan and I live in Chicago so we figured Green Bay would be a good midway point... Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for where we could stay to be "near" things. I have only ever driven through Green Bay, so I don't know my way around AT ALL! We'll probably want some food and beverages after a long day of shopping so if there are hotels close to "fun" activities that's a plus! Any advice you can give would help a lot!!!

I can't help you with dress shopping, but for hotels you might consider the Radisson. It is connected to the Oneida Casino. The restaurant is very good and there is also a nice bar. It is across from the airport. Green Bay is small enough that nothing is more than a few minutes drive away.

If you look into the Radisson check out the casino package.

Thanks!! I'm not so sure we'll be all about the casino though. We both went to college in Michigan in a town where there was a casino and didn't really frequent the place all that often. I was more looking for cool restaurants or bars. Is there anything near Lambeau? Not that I need to be near the stadium, I just figured there might be cool places around there... Any suggestions? Basically, I don't mind driving around during the day for the shopping part, but at night I'd rather have things to do close enough to the hotel where there won't be a designated driver needed!

There are plenty of hotels around Lambeau, I'm sure any one of them would be good and since it's not football season, you shouldn't have a problem getting a room. However I do not know the names of the hotels. There is plenty to do around the stadium. There are tons of fun bars to go to. They're mostly sports bars but often have a band on weekends. Our favorites are Anduzzi's, The Bar, and Stadium View. Right next to the Resch Center is a restaurant called The Smokehouse Grill which is attached to one of the hotels. Very good food there too. We've also eaten at Stadium View, great burgers! Sorry I couldn't give you any specifics for hotels, but the area around the stadium has a lot around it.

There are several hotels in the area. You will most likely want to stay in Ashwaubenon, a suburb of Green Bay, and that is near Bay Park Square mall, which is fun to shop at. Most of the hotels are in this area, as well as sports bars.

Don't worry about not knowing your way around. It isn't very big, and everything is easy to find. If you are shopping at Bay Park Square, there are several hotels right by it, which are all just a few blocks from 41. Even if you decide to go downtown, it is easy to find and navigate around in.

If you do get downtown, one suggestion for food/drink is Titletown Brewery. They have good food! It is on Dousman Street, right by the river in an old train depot.

Have fun.

You could stay at the Hilton Garden Inn. It's right next to the Stadium View and Favres Steak House, and only a block from Anduzzi's and "The Bar". You also could stay at the Midway Lodge... It's literally right across the street from Stadium View. The Bay City Smokehouse is part of the Midway Lodge. It's a Best Western property. I've spent quite a few Saturday nights there singing karaoke with Dale the KJ.

Either place would be OK if by the phrase "close to fun" means having a great time at a few of the sports bars in town. Anduzzi's dance floor on Saturday nights is packed.

Hmm... another place you could stay is the Holiday Inn City Centre. It's probably one of the better Holiday Inns I know of. We have quite a few meetings there for work. The REAL nice thing about staying there is you can walk across the bridge to the Titletown restaurant and brewery, and eat. Then, walk back across the bridge, then walk south down Washington Street about 2 blocks and hit all the downtown bars in there. Make sure you get just south of Walnut Street to the brand new country bar that just opened up, Stirrups. There is a place called Hip Cats... if you are wanted a place packed wall to wall and a hot dance floor, that's your place. =)

Anyway, if you want to be more specific on what you want to be near, I could probably help you out. Feel free to ask. =)

Thanks for all the help everyone! It looks like we're going to end up staying at the Holiday Inn. It was the cheapest I could find online, and seemed fairly centrally located to some bridal shops in the area. Thanks for the info and what's around it! I'm more of a "sports bar" kind of person than a "dance with millions of people around" kind of person. I just wanted to make sure there were things to do close to the hotel so I didn't end up in the clink with a DUI!!! :)

There is a small sports bar that literally shares the same parking lot as the Holiday Inn. It's called Coaches Corner. It's a nice place, but not very big, as sports bars go. The last time I was in there, I was there with a cohort that had purchased their club card where he got 50% off drinks ALL the time. It was time well spent. =) They also have NTN trivia, if you're into that.

There is another place just south on Washington. Maloney's Pub. It's sandwiched between several other places. Small, but fun.

One other option is to stay on the same side of the bridge as the Titletown and walk west to the corner of Broadway. Then go south about 3 or 4 doors. Harry the Hipster is on the west side of the street. It's smoky... but so much fun. Their smokeater isn't very operational.

Anyway, have fun. There's lots to do!

Candlewood Suites is a much better hotel to select for anyone visiting the area. They are about five years old and I always have my visiting family members from MI stay there. The customer service is excellent and the rooms are always meticulously clean. If you can directly they offer discounted rates as well.

if you stay at the Holiday Inn downtown you have to stop in at a little new bar just a few blocks a way, its called Keggers, they just opened up, a few weeks ago i was up in green bay to go to my very first packer game, and it happene to be against the bears, i drove my rental car over the bridge turned on broadway and stopped in on a bar called Keggers, the bartenders were really great, the owner happened to be there and helped me with directions around town, he even met me downtown at the game and let me tailgate with his group, toated me around the stadium and found me a ticket, the owner name is Will, stop in and visit with him, he's great, he help you find whatever you want in town, and if he dont know he'll call someone to find out what you want to find, plus the beer is good, and late at night there is a really fun crowd there to drink, they have this weird game that gets played in the back called beer pong, they throw ping pong balls into cups full of beer, i played 10 games atleast, total blast, i think the address was 231 North Broadway, i told the owner that i would gloat about his bar because of how nice of a guy he was.
