Want to beat the mad rush to the football game of the year? The 2014 Super Bowl will be held in MetLife Stadium in the first Outdoor cold weather Super Bowl. As always, the hotels have increased rates and some are charging upwards of $1300 a night, depending upon their location. Want to go, but can’t afford exorbitant hotel fees? Stay at a bed and breakfast in New Jersey and enjoy top perks, but not over-the-top prices.
Sixteen inns, all of which are members of The Preferred Inns of New Jersey Bed & Breakfast Association, are participating in HuddleNJ (www.HuddleNJ.com) offering rooms below $650 per night (some as low as $100 per night) and prepping fans with hefty homemade breakfasts, free WiFi, and other perks. Plus, most of the inns are near public transportation, meaning you don’t have to worry about driving home after enjoying the festivities– especially if you buy an unlimited SUPER PASS. The limited edition commemorative pass is valid for unlimited travel from Monday, January 27 through Monday, February 3, 2014 on all NJ TRANSIT rail, bus, light rail and Access Link services throughout New Jersey, including travel to and from Newark Liberty International Airport and New York City. It’s available now, online only at www.njtransit.com/superbowl.
Some B&Bs are featuring special football-theme packages, others are baking up pies and sweets, and then there are those offering round-the-clock complimentary beverages, like hot chocolate and hot tea, to sports fanatics who might really need the warm welcome– remember, this is the first outdoor cold weather Super Bowl ever… brr!
