Courtyard by Marriott® – part of Marriott Bonvoy’s® portfolio of 30 extraordinary hotel brands, enters its 12th year as the NFL’s official hotel partner.
NFL’s official hotel in 2022 continuous to curate more once-in-a-lifetime memories for its guests.
Most recently, Courtyard by Marriott announced the new “This is Where We Fan” season-long program to inspire NFL fans to follow their passion for football, near and far, while exploring new places and connecting with their fandom.
The season-long program is launched with a contest offering multiple chances to win prizes, including the first-ever “Fansgiving” Dinner on the New York Giants home field, followed by the grand prize of the Courtyard Super Bowl Sleepover, where winners will enjoy an overnight stay inside the stadium over Super Bowl LVII weekend. NFL fans can enter by sharing stories of how they celebrate their unique NFL fandoms, even while on the road.
Courtyard “Fansgiving” Dinner on the 50: The two great Thanksgiving traditions of travel and football will come together for the ultimate celebration this year. Lucky fans and their guests will be invited to partake in an exclusive dinner on the 50-yard line of the New York Giants home field, the week before Thanksgiving, coupled with a one-night hotel stay. A select number of seats will also be available exclusively to Marriott Bonvoy members for redemption. Contest will be open until October 15, 2022.
Courtyard by Marriott Super Bowl Sleepover: The winner of the Super Bowl Sleepover and their guest will have exclusive access to an overnight stay inside a stadium suite transformed into a Courtyard guest room overlooking the field — becoming the first to wake up inside the stadium on Super Bowl Sunday. In addition to the sleepover, Courtyard will host the winner and three friends for a weekend of awe-inspiring experiences with access to exclusive events, culminating with tickets to Super Bowl LVII. Contest will be open from October 8, 2022 – November 18, 2022.
VIP Tickets to the 2023 NFL Draft: The most passionate fans follow their teams to the NFL Draft to witness history in the making. Contest winners will get the VIP treatment at the NFL Draft in Kansas City, Mo., with exclusive access to the weekend’s biggest events leading into the next season. Marriott Bonvoy members will be able to redeem VIP tickets as well as the chance for one member to announce a draft pick on the big stage. Contest will be open from February 15, 2023 – March 15, 2023.
Tickets to Your Team’s Away Games: There is no better feeling than taking over a stadium with kindred visiting fans to challenge the home team at an away game. Throughout the regular season, a handful of entrants will get to attend an away game of their choice, inclusive of a one-night hotel stay. Giveaway will be open until November 13, 2022.
Fans can enter the contest during each entry period by submitting a video or photo on TikTok, Instagram, or Twitter with the hashtag #CourtyardFanContest and tagging @CourtyardHotels, showcasing where they fan and who they fan with.
For travelers staying at Courtyard hotels across the U.S. and Canada during the season, Courtyard’s Bistro Bar offers favorite game day food and drinks to enjoy while relaxing and watching the game. Marriott Bonvoy members can also receive up to 2,000 bonus points per night any day of the week as part of the 2K Everyday promotion available now through December 31, 2022, at participating Courtyard hotels.
“Being away from your home team doesn’t mean you have to leave your fandom behind,” said Sarah Lipton, Vice President, Premium & Select Brand Marketing at Marriott International.
“Courtyard empowers fans to follow their passion for football – whether it’s traveling to see their team dominate in a new city, heading to a nearby stadium with a staycation at one of our hotels, or even rubbing elbows with rivals at our Bistro Bar. Courtyard is the place where fans can look forward to embracing their fandom.”
