Book a Stay in These Florida Hotels for the Best Super Bowl Packages

Spread the love

You might need a Hail Mary or two if you’ve waited until now to plan a trip to Miami for Super Bowl 2020. But if you just have to see National Football Conference champion the San Francisco 49ers face off against American Football Conference champion the Kansas City Chiefs in person at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens on Feb. 2, it’s still possible to snag Super Bowl packages that include seats and rooms at some killer Miami hotels.

If you still need a flight, American Airlines has added additional flights to Miami from Kansas City, San Francisco, and San Jose for the weekend; Southwest Airlines also announced additional flight options from Kansas City and San Jose to Fort Lauderdale, which is about an hour’s drive from Miami. Game tickets are available on the official Super Bowl website, starting at $4,122.50 per person (and you better believe they’re as—if not more—expensive on resale sites like StubHub). You can also buy ticket and hotel packages there, starting at $6,250 per person.

But you don’t have to go through the NFL to snag a room. Miami is full of luxury hotels and resorts offering all kinds of perks to match the pricey rooms of Super Bowl weekend, from game-day BBQs, star-studded pre-game parties, VIP tailgating experiences, and post-game recovery treatments. Whether your team wins or loses, you’ll come out on top with a rez at any of these properties.

1. Carillon Miami Wellness Resort

Football fanatics who don’t want to sacrifice their own fitness regimen while traveling for the big game should make Carillon Miami their HQ during Super Bowl weekend. The hotel is offering a Game Day Weekend package, which starts at $1,389.30 per night for a four-night minimum stay. In addition to luxury accommodations, it includes two tickets to a Fan Fest BBQ at The Strand (plus a complimentary beer and snacks); daily access to over 120 fitness classes; the property’s signature Thermal Hydrotherapy Circuit; and a $150 add-on Wellness Credit to use on treatments like an IV Therapy hangover cure you’re going to need whether you were celebrating or commiserating at the game.

2. 1 Hotel South Beach

If you’re a seriously high roller, 1 Hotel South Beach is offering The Big Game at 1 packages, which start at $200,000 for a four-night stay. The most affordable stay includes two tickets to the game with seats in the 72 Club right on the 50-yard line, round-trip transfer to the stadium, all-inclusive pre-game hospitality, access to the in-stadium post-game party, and post-game field access, as well as other VIP perks back at the hotel. (For a cool $1.5 million, you can bring 19 of your friends and watch the game from an exclusive open-air suite with access to a private club between the 30-yard lines.)

3. Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club

At the Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club on North Beach, you can book The Touchdown Experience at the Marybelle Penthouse Suite. The four-night package includes a stay in the hotel’s most luxurious suite, four tickets to the game, a BBQ breakfast for four on game day on your private terrace, chauffeured service to and from the arena for four guests, and four personalized official jerseys (for whichever team you’re supporting). If you can’t manage to snag the penthouse reservation, the hotel will still be hosting a free game-day tailgate and screening event on the lawn.

4. The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale is only an hour down the beach from Miami—which, when you’re making plans super last-minute, may be the closest you can get to the stadium. Whether you’re going to the game or not, you can soothe your pre- and post-game nerves at The Ritz-Carlton’s full-service spa, which is offering football-themed treatments like the Defensive Facial, a clinical-strength, deep cleansing facial with the goal of leaving you looking more youthful; or the Offensive Muscle Melter, a targeted massage focused on your back, legs, and feet for when your body feels in the “red zone.”

5. The Diplomat Beach Resort

Situated on the Gold Coast between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, the Diplomat Beach Resort is just 20 minutes from Hard Rock Stadium. There’s a Super Bowl package (three nights for $3,000), but the property’s real appeal is its Taste of the NFL event hosted here the night before the game (tickets are $700 per guest). The annual wine and food event features more than 35 stations with a chef and current or retired NFL player representing each NFL city. In addition to the meals and mingling, there’s a silent auction to benefit the organization’s food bank partnerships, sports merchandise for sale, and a surprise performer.

6. Fontainebleau Miami Beach

The Fontainebleau is a Miami Beach landmark, and the property is offering a three-night Super Bowl package that includes game tickets (starting at $7,310 per person). On Friday night, head to the hotel’s Evening With A Legend party on the Ocean Lawn (the legend is Hall of Famer Derrick Brooks). Then, on game day, you get access to the Players Tailgate pregame party alongside current NFL players (catered by Guy Fieri) before taking your seats on the upper-level end zone. And whether your team wins or loses, you’ll head home with a swag bag of commemorative Super Bowl goodies.

7. Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

Grab a room for $1,399/night at the guitar-shaped Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino near Hollywood, less than 10 miles from Hard Rock Stadium. Besides the prime location, the hotel is hosting what are sure to be wild performances around the Super Bowl: Lil Jon kicks off game day DJing “The Ultimate Tailgate Party” at DAER Dayclub ($15/women, $20/men), and DJ Khaled will keep the post-game party going from 10 p.m. on in the same venue ($40).
