Football Fans Flock to Hotels Near the 2012 Cotton Bowl

Renaissance Dallas Richardson Hotel Offers Special Weekend Package

RICHARDSON, TX--(Marketwire - Nov 28, 2011) - The Dallas Cowboys, "Friday Night Lights" -- if it's big in football, it's gotta' be in Texas. The AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic is back for its 76th year, bringing football fans from around the country to 4-star hotels in Dallas.

The game, held at Cowboys Stadium Friday, January 6, 2012, at 7pm, is already sold out, but whether you've already got tickets or are just looking to be part of the action, the Renaissance Dallas Richardson Hotel, among hotels near the Cotton Bowl, is offering a special package between January 4th and 8th.

With this weekend package at our 4-star Dallas hotel, sports fans can enjoy a fan-friendly rate of $99, which includes two complimentary drink tickets at our Take 5 Lounge, located in our modern atrium lobby, which is decorated with water features and glass artwork. The lounge offers light bites, creative cocktails and wines by the glass, perfect for pre- or post-game celebrations, or as an ideal break for those who've tagged along for the trip but aren't necessarily into the game.

The Cotton Bowl has sold out 9 of the past 10 years, with 2012 being its third year at Cowboys Stadium. This, of course, means that Cotton Bowl hotels sell out just as quickly. To make sure you don't miss out on the action, book your Cotton Bowl package at the Renaissance Dallas Richardson Hotel today by visiting and using the promotion code LPR.
