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.
