Roosevelt Hotel, New York
When it was still warm out, the hotel’s rooftop lounge mad46 was prime game-watching territory, but now the scene has moved into the cozy Madison Club Lounge. There’s something appealing about watching the Monday game on flat screen TVs in such an historic setting, and the half-price Coors Lights don’t hurt either. Despite the posh décor, you can still chow down on Buffalo wings, potato skins and sliders.
Newport Beachwalk Hotel
This oceanfront property has a football package available on Monday nights through December 28. It includes a one-night stay, continental breakfast, use of bicycles (to warm up pre-game?), and two bottles of beer and pretzels or popcorn.

InterContinental Hotel Miami
High on the Dolphins’ improvements this year, and prepping for the Super Bowl in February, the InterContinental in downtown Miami is hosting a “Game Day Scratch-Off Challenge” on Monday nights. The bar’s regular happy hour (5–7 p.m.) will be extended throughout the game, and with each touchdown guests watching will be given a scratch-off card with the chance of winning hotel stays, spa treatments, and Super Bowl tickets.
Brown Palace Hotel, Denver
Broncos fans looking for a good spot to watch tonight’s game can soak up some of their team’s history at this downtown Denver hotel. It was in the Brown Palace’s lobby that Bob Howsam and Lamar Hunt met to discuss the creation of the new American Football League in 1959. Yesterday, a bunch of Broncos old-times celebrated the 50th anniversary of the team at the hotel. You can pretend you’re a team owner or star player by settling in for a single-malt scotch and a cigar in the Churchill Bar.
Encore Las Vegas
The luxury hotel casino's Society Cafe has a special "tailgating menu" with menu items like meatball heros, nachos, and footlong hot dogs, all starting at $12. There are also mojitos, beer and sangria specials. Everything starts, as you'd expect, at kick-off.
