NEW ORLEANS–Courtyard by Marriott, the official hotel of the National Football League, will be very visible here this weekend for Super Bowl XLVII.
The brand is kicking off its 30th anniversary celebrations during the avidly-watched championship game with Marriott International hosting a special tailgate event for NFL players and top customers. Courtyard has also sponsored a poll of 30 NFL beat writers representing 22 markets around the country. The poll results favored the San Francisco 49ers to prevail over the Baltimore Ravens in the game.
With more than 900 locations in 38 countries, Courtyard has the most locations of any Marriott International brand, according to Janis Milham, VP and global brand leader.
