From inns with Swinging ’60s charm to upmarket Hilton heavens, there are some fantastic places to stay near the Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa – now bookable with Culture Trip.

Founded in the 19th century after the Creek War, Tuscaloosa, or Black Warrior, was named after the Choctaw chief who had fought a Spanish explorer’s army in the 16th century. Today, healthcare and education fuel the economy of Alabama’s former capital. The city is home to the University of Alabama, where the Museum of Natural History sits – stroll along the Black Warrior Riverwalk, or join the cheering football fans of Alabama Crimson Tide.
