Are You Ready for Some...Courtyard by Marriott?
October 5, 2011 at 12:06 PM
The NFL season is in full effect and if you're looking to hang out with people who follow the gridiron games as fervently as you do, then you might wanna consider hitting up a Courtyard by Marriott.
The budget hotel brand has just announced that it is now "The Official Hotel Sponsor of the NFL" claiming that 83 percent of their customers are NFL fans. 83 percent! And 68 percent say they are "passionate fans", not just girls who watch Mark Sanchez and Tom Brady because they are cute.
Naturally, this new sponsorship means new NFL-oriented rewards and experiences. Forbes reports that there could be a contest to send one lucky winner to the Super Bowl in Indianapolis. There could also be chances to cash in Marriott Rewards points for NFL tickets or prizes. But best of all, Courtyard could be holding some official viewing parties at their hotels on Thursday and Monday nights--perfect for the road warriors who don't want to miss games.
And speaking of the road, Forbes also points out that the NFL has been branding the phrase, "Greatness on the Road" which would easily work with this new partnership with Courtyard.
Oh and speaking of Super Bowl, we just checked and the three Courtyard by Marriott hotels in Indianapolis are totally sold-out the weekend of February 3 (The Super Bowl is on February 5.) So yes, Courtyard, a contest to send a winner to the Super Bowl would be awesome.
