"Give me Liberty or give me … sleep."
Fans of the Iowa State Cyclones and Tulsa Golden Hurricane will actually be able to have both thanks to three Marriott hotels near Memphis. The Courtyard Memphis Southaven, Fairfield Inn & Suites Memphis Southaven and Residence Inn Memphis Southaven have teamed up to offer special group rates for attendees of the 54th annual AutoZone Liberty Bowl on Monday, Dec. 31.
The Southaven hotels, just a 20-minute trek to Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium in Memphis, will offer free transportation to and from Memphis International Airport in addition to special rates from $114 to $144 per night. Guests of the Fairfield Inn & Suites and Residence Inn also will score complimentary breakfast during their stay.
Bowl-goers who arrive in town on Sunday, Dec. 30, will find plenty of pre-game activities to partake in, including the Beale Street Parade, featuring numerous floats and bands from local high schools and universities performing down the historic street in Memphis. Football fanatics will then gather in Handy Park for the Bash on Beale, a pep rally where the schools’ musical groups will go head to head in a battle of the bands. A full night of live music, food and fun then await college students and alumni alike as more than 30 restaurants, nightclubs and bars along nearly 1.8 miles cater to the Liberty Bowl crowd.
With less than a 30-minute cab ride from Beale Street to Sleepy Hollow Drive, football fanatics will touch down in their deluxe accommodations with plenty of time to get some sleep before the big game at 2 p.m. Monday.
