Where to Stay in San Jose Ahead of Super Bowl 50
Super Bowl 50 is fast approaching and as kickoff nears time is running out for football fans to secure their hotel room for the weekend.
While the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos will battle inside Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, many ticketholders will fly into Mineta San Jose International Airport and spend time in downtown San Jose, California, both of which are located just minutes from the stadium.
Therefore, travelers shouldn't overlook the Silicon Valley destination.
For those planning a San Jose stay, here are three hotels guaranteed to provide the perfect pregame experience.
Fairmont San Jose
Although it pales in comparison to the lavish $1 million package being offered by the nearby Fairmont San Francisco, Fairmont San Jose's Ultimate Fan package provides the ideal Super Bowl experience for a group of friends with money to spend.
The $150,000 package includes eight tickets to Super Bowl 50, three nights at the hotel's four-bedroom Presidential Suite (view from suite pictured above), luxury transportation to the Big Game and a $5,000 Apple dream gift package, among other perks.
The Fairmont San Jose is also rolling out a series of other (less expensive) Super Bowl-related special offers.
San Jose Marriott
If the Fairmont's package sounds great but too pricey, consider the recently renovated San Jose Marriott in downtown San Jose.
The AAA four-diamond property recently completed a $10.5 million renovation that not only brings a new design and feel to the hotel, but enhanced technological features. For those planning to get a little work done ahead of the Big Game, this hotel claims to boast the fastest Wi-Fi in Silicon Valley.
Hotel De Anza
For travelers seeking an affordable boutique hotel room for Super Bowl 50, San Jose's Hotel De Anza, a Destinaton Hotel, is certainly worth a look.
As part of its Football's Biggest Gameday package, the hotel is offering nightly rates for the Big Game (Feb. 3-8, 2016) starting at $659.
What's more, Hotel De Anza offers a convenient location for those with tickets to the matchup inside Levi's Stadium. The hotel is within walking distance of the Caltrain, which will transport many fans to the stadium on Super Sunday.
