Hotels Near NHL Hockey Arenas
Every year from September to June hockey fans can enjoy the games of the NHL (National Hockey League) season. While the NHL still thrives in its "Original Six" major cities (New York, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Montreal, Toronto), in the last twenty years teams have been added to places that you don't immediately associate with hockey (like Phoenix and Florida) as well as some smaller cities (like Columbus, Nashville and Raleigh).
