This year’s big game on Sunday, February 7th goes well beyond the gridiron for the general managers (GMs) of the Omni Severin Hotel in Indianapolis and the Omni Royal Orleans. To celebrate the showdown, the Omni GMs have placed their traditional wager which includes the “Go Indy, Go Big Easy” overnight stay package at the luxury hotels.
Guests who book “Go Indy, Go Big Easy” and are staying in the winning team’s city will receive their room night at no charge. Now that’s worth cheering for!
The wager doesn’t end at complimentary rooms—if Indianapolis wins, the Omni Royal Orleans GM, Steve Ferran, will parade around the French Quarter in Indianapolis regalia while cheering for his rival. Likewise, should New Orleans win, Phil Ray, GM of the Omni Severin Hotel, must do the same around Monument Circle.
Additionally, Omni Hotel guests staying in the losing city will receive a touchdown-worthy taste of the winning city’s cuisine throughout the week following the big game. An Indianapolis victory means New Orleans guests receive complimentary “Just Pop In!” popcorn, an Indianapolis specialty. Should New Orleans pull off a victory, Indianapolis guests will dine on complimentary king cake.
Guests and locals coming to watch game festivities at both hotels can enjoy specialty appetizers and cocktails on game day, including the Big Easy Breezy in New Orleans, a sweet blend of Grape Blovad Vodka layered over pineapple juice and the Big Blue Margarita in Indianapolis.
