Participants in this year’s Super Bowl in Glendale will have to pay a fortune just to get here and find a place to sleep.

Why is this important: We reap the benefits of tax revenue when foreigners deposit lots of money in the valley for hotels, restaurants and entertainment.

By the numbers: The closest available hotel to State Farm Stadium is a 2½ star Days by Wyndham Hotel to Peoria, about 5 miles. It costs $749 per night on Super Bowl weekend. Maybe don’t read the Comments.

Flight prices: We’ve looked at the cheapest round-trip prices (Friday-Monday) from the nearest airport to the four favored teams to get to the Super Bowl. We excluded itineraries that would require people to book with multiple airlines or with layovers longer than six hours.

Be smart: Some landlords in the valley are trying to take advantage of this extremely expensive weekend by renting out rooms or their entire accommodation for the weekend.

  • According to Airbnb, the last time the Super Bowl was held in Glendale in 2015, the hosts collectively won over $1 million, ABC 15 reported. And the short-term rental scene is much bigger now.

Yes, but: Be aware of new Valley rental regulations, which include registration with the state, county, and some cities. The Arizona Republic has a great guide on how to obey the law.

  • And if you live in an HOA, check your CC&Rs. Many have banned rentals of less than 30 days.
