Jersey City hotels to host 2014 Super Bowl teams

Posted: Updated:

Jersey City, New Jersey's second-largest city, will play host to both Super Bowl teams next year.

The NFL confirmed Thursday that the Hyatt Regency and the Westin hotels will house the AFC and NFC teams for the 2014 championship game. Both hotels are on the Hudson River waterfront and are near mass transit.

The 2014 Super Bowl will be played at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, which is about eight miles from Jersey City. It will be the first Super Bowl played in a traditional cold-weather location.

The NFC team will train at the New York Giants' training facility adjacent to MetLife Stadium, while the AFC team will train at the New York Jets' facility in Florham Park, about 15 miles from the stadium.

    Ghosts of Sandy still visible in Ortley Beach

    It's nearly two years since Superstorm Sandy blasted into Ortley Beach and decimated this small section of Toms River. And the storm-slammed empty houses on some streets and trailers on lots are painful reminders that Ortley Beach was dubbed “ground zero” by some after the Oct. 29, 2012 storm devastated the Jersey coast. A number of Ortley Beach residents attended the Aug. 26 Township Council meeting to ask what, if anything, can be done to speed things up.
