I have stayed at the Delta right across the street before. It was good. Nothing extraordinary, but all around good. I can't remember if I had to pay for parking separately or not. This was years ago (2012) before the arena was up though or even approved. I am planning on staying there again for Ed Sheeran (July 25) so I can provide an update after that.

Try the Westin or Sutton Place hotels, they are nice and fairly close.

Comes down later this year I believe. And then a parking lot for a couple years while they plan the tower.

One of the few times where a downtown parking lot is a severe improvement to the current structure.
