Whether you’re a football fan or not, you’ve surely heard of the Deflategate scandal. After the New England Patriots (I’m admittedly an enormous fan) won Super Bowl 2015, the team was accused of having tampered with footballs in a game against the Indianapolis Colts earlier that season. In May, the NFL said it would suspend star quarterback Tom Brady for four games in the 2015-2016 season as punishment for his alleged involvement in the case of the deflated balls (and to be fair, they weren’t even that deflated). Brady took the NFL and their ridiculous (in my opinion) case to court and today, a federal judge erased the four-game suspension. It wasn’t just a victory for Brady and the Patriots, but a win for the integrity of the game. Pats fans around the country are celebrating—and so is Boston’s Hotel Commonwealth.
Today the hotel announced a limited-time promotion for guests who stay overnight September 12 (a nod to Brady’s jersey #12). Now through September 10 (the team’s season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers), anybody who books a room or suite for September 12 will receive a certificate for a future free overnight stay to be used before Super Bowl 2016 on February 7, 2016. You don’t even need to be a Pats fan to take advantage—it’s a great excuse to visit Boston.
Guests can book reservations by calling 866-784-4000 and providing the code “TB12.”
