So if you're set on freezing your a** off cheering your team on at the Super Bowl XLVIIIthis weekend, there are still plenty of hotel options available in NYC. Like, the most amount of hotel rooms open that we've ever seen for a Super Bowl.

But considering the game is actually in New Jersey, we thought we'd check the hotel options there.

Crazily enough, the Hilton Meadowlands, formerly the Sheraton and practically overlooking the MetLife stadium, has rooms open from January 31-February 2 or February 3 for just $499 on Expedia. Plus free shuttle transportation to the stadium!

Ummm, BOOK IT. You can split the cost with a friend or a stranger. Who cares? That's a good deal right there. Especially since most of the other options in NJ are budget brands like a Red Roof Inn for $170 a night, although we did see a Hyatt Place Secaucus/Meadowlands for $399 a night. Not too terrible. You could also hit up one of New Jersey's B&Bs, most of which are located near NJ Transit stops. Even though getting to the game will still be a hassle of epic proportions.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the scoop on NJ Hotel Super Bowl Parties. In the meantime, check the NYC Hotel Super Bowl Parties here.

The Hilton is Now Open at The Meadowlands (But Rooms Are Probably Sold-Out for Super Bowl)

The long-standing Sheraton near The Meadowlands Complex in New Jersey, where the Giants and Jets play, has turned into a Hilton Hotel, with some brand new rooms, a new lobby and hallways. (The remaining rooms and meeting space are scheduled to begin renovation later next year.)

Aside from a prime location near the Meadowlands and the MetLife Stadium, the hotel is just four miles from NYC and 15 minutes from Newark Liberty International Airport, making it an affordable alternative to Manhattan. But should you want to stay at this hotel sometime in early February, try again. The hotel is the host hotel of Super Bowl XLVIII which means rooms are probably sold-out.

And we say probably because there isn't an official Hilton site for the hotel right now. The existing Sheraton site is still up but when we tried to make a reservation for next week, no dice. Until the Hilton site comes online, you may want to call the hotel at (201) 896-0500 to book your stay. Who knows? Maybe you'll get lucky with a room for the Super Bowl.
