Although New York City alone has more than 100,000 hotel rooms, Super Bowl fans can also bunk on a boat.
The Bud Light Hotel—actually the soon-to-be-christened Getaway, Norwegian Cruise Line's newest vessel—will sail into Gotham at the end of the month and host 4,000 overnight guests. The ship features 18 decks, 22 bars, 2,014 cabins, 815 theater seats, a nine-hole miniature golf course and a three-story sports complex.

The hotel will be in business from Jan. 30 through Feb. 2. The Bud Light events will stretch to the adjacent Intrepid Museum and other nearby piers. Entertainment includes performances by the Foo Fighters, RUN DMC, Busta Rhymes, Zac Brown Band and Imagine Dragons.
For a more intimate floating-hotel experience, the historic Nantucket Lightship is available for booking at Pier 25 on the Hudson River. The Nantucket is more "Dom Perignon" than Bud, said Bill Golden, who owns the ship with his wife, Kristen.
"While the Budweiser cruise ship will be a blast, I'll bet you a case of Bud that anyone staying on [there] would gladly mutiny and jump ship to party and stay instead on the Lightship over Super Bowl weekend," Golden told CNBC.

He describes the Nantucket, which dates from the 1950s, as "five staterooms ... and 4,000 square feet of handcrafted interior," decorated with marine paintings and artifacts.
Its weekend package is available for booking (with a starting bid of $20,000,) via eBay, where the couple bought the ship 14 years ago. The Nantucket will be at Pier 25 through May.
Other floating hotels have been available in recent years in the New York area.
For example, the quirky Boatel, in Queens, was badly damaged in Hurricane Sandy, but its website states plans to reopen this summer. Another floating hotel on a retired Ellis Island ferry, the Yankee Ferry, is listed for sale.

And while a lot of partying will be going on throughout Super Bowl week, the U.S. Coast Guard takes the duty seriously. An extra tier of inspection is required for any vessel with paying overnight passengers, said USCG spokesman Charles Rowe.
So far, though, things have been very routine in New York Harbor.
"This isn't our first rodeo," Rowe said.
