Looking for hotels near p. brown stadium for concert in july

I have tickets for the kenny chesney concert in July and I need a close, walkable hotel near the stadium. More than likely driving will be out of the question due to the high inebriation level expected for everyone in the party. Would love advice on a nice hotel without high parking charges (seems like all of downtown charges high rates). Looked at a couple in Covington, but they looked like they were a bit of a hike to p.b.s. Years ago, I seem to remember a bridge you could walk across to go to the Reds games back in Riverfront Stadium days. We would park across the river in Covington or Newport and walk to the game. Unfortunately, I can't remember the location or the bridge. Just looking for some help, thanks!!

Use a search engine like Kayak.com to help you find and locate hotels (you can map them according to their distance from the stadium). All downtown hotels (Westin, Netherland Hilton, Millennium, Cincinnatian, Hyatt and even the Garfield Suites) are within an easy walk of the stadium as are most all of the hotels/motels in Covington. NewportKY is a little farther away but still a relatively easy walk or cab or bus ride to the stadium. There are several bridges that will enable you to walk across the river but after a long day it may be easier to stay downtown. There is also parking available downtown at rates that are less than what most hotels charge although hotels will usually offer in-out privileges with their rates. How many nights are you staying in total?

The Marriott and Embassy Suites are just across the Roebling Suspension Bridge in Covington. It's only about a half mile away from the hotels to PBS and they have plenty of available parking. Dozens of other concert goers will be taking the bridge as well, so it will be a safe walk after the show.

You're most likely referencing the Taylor Southgate Bridge; it takes you from Newport to just outside US Bank Arena/Great American Ballpark. There are a couple hotels on the Newport side; however, the walk to PBS would be quite a bit further.

There is a Marriott (not Rivercenter) and Holiday Inn Riverfront about ablock away from the the bridge that goes across the river directly next to the stadium. These are both located in covington. The bridge I am talking about is the Clay Way Bailey Bridge that goes from 4th street in covington to second street in Cinci,
