Through its "Greatness on the Road" campaign, 12 select Courtyard hotels in the New York and New Jersey area will be fully Super Bowl branded and feature commemorative Super Bowl key cards, welcome amenities and Super Bowl pocket guides for all guests to enjoy.

True to its commitment of enhancing guest and fan experience through its alignment with the NFL, Courtyard activities this weekend include:
