Can't give any specific advice on your question, but will point out that as long as you can cancel without any penalty I don't see how you can go wrong.

If prices go up you're good at a locked in rate And, if at some point in the future you find a better deal, you can book elsewhere and cancel this one.

Sounds like a win-win to me,

Don;t think the price of hotels are affected during the saseon as most of the fans will be locals

If you are finding those prices for hotels close to the stadium for September then definately go ahead and book them now. September is a popular time in downtown Indy and rates are effected by other things than football. There are usually many ethnic festivals, concerts, and other events downtown that might play a role in higher rates. If I'm not mistaken the BMW Golf Championship takes place in September and even though it is in Carmel there might be some spill over into downtown.

Wait until the schedule comes out and book it on Hotwire. The good thing about Indy is that is very compact. All of the hotels downtown are within walking distance to the the stadium or are within a quick cab ride. I have never paid more than $100 after taxes and fees to stay in a 4 star hotel downtown by booking on Hotwire. Trust me you won't regret it.

I would book now as long as you can cancel. Downtown hotel prices are mostly affected by conventions and the price you have (120) sounds very good.
