    There's a Holiday Gateway Inn close to the stadium.

    6 or 7 that night. Hotels I have no idea on. I think the Fairfield Inn on 16th is Marriott?

    Gateway is nice, the Starlight on 13th is alot nicer than it looks, (recently renovated) and it's fairly cheap. Theres also a Holiday Inn on 13th that is nice.

    From the north entrance of the stadium (South 4th St):

    1.5 miles to the University Blvd cluster (Holiday Inn, Best Western, Gateway Hotel)

    3 miles to the cluster at SE 16th and Dayton Ave (Microtel, Fairfield by Marriott, Comfort Inn, Heartland Inn, AmericInn, Country Inn, Hampton Inn, Super 8)

    You could check into the hotel at the Memorial Union if you'd like to stay on campus.

    Probably 2-3 miles. 16th Street to the stadium and University Boulevard to get on campus. 13st Street hotels would be further away. The Gateway hotel on University Boulevard would be closer. Depending where your brother lives, the Hilton Garden Inn just off South Dakota in West Ames might be the closest. The Memorial Union hotel is actually on the southern tip of campus.
