TORRANCE, Calif., Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Guests staying at the Courtyard Los Angeles Torrance/South Bay can literally stop and smell the roses before and after attending the famous Tournament of Roses.
The South Bay hotel is about 35 minutes from all the action and offers deluxe accommodations and thoughtful amenities ideal for the college football fan.
Be part of history by attending the 125th annual Rose Parade and 100th Rose Bowl on Jan. 1, 2014. The Rose Bowl, also known as "The Granddaddy of Them All," is the oldest bowl game in college football and will be held at 2:10 p.m. PT at Rose Bowl Stadium. Since the first game, the highlight of the college football season has been played by 17 Heisman Trophy winners, produced 29 national championships, featured 199 All-Americans and inducted 107 college football legends into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame. The game will present an exciting match-up between two of the top teams in the nation.
The ever-popular Rose Parade precedes the game and follows a 5.5 mile route starting at the corner of Green Street and Orange Grove Boulevard and concluding at Villa Street. This year's theme is "Dreams Come True," a tribute to the imagination, passion, creativity and hard work that it takes to reach the milestone game. In keeping with tradition, parade participants are limited to floral floats, equestrian units and marching bands. A sight to behold, each float is covered entirely in fresh flowers, leaves, seeds or bark and uses more flowers than the average florist will in five years. Construction of new floats typically begins immediately after the parade wraps up.
Guests of the South Bay hotel can begin their day with a fresh cup of coffee brewed in their room while using complimentary wireless Internet access to check the status of traffic and plan the best possible route to the parade and game. Lodgers can fuel up at The Bistro – Eat. Drink. Connect. before heading off to Pasadena and all of the festivities. The café-style eatery is a newer addition to the Torrance, CA, hotel and serves a variety of items for breakfast including classic oatmeal, fresh fruit, thick-cut french toast, made-to-order eggs and breakfast BLTs. Starbucks coffees and teas also are available at The Bistro.
Whether their team is victorious or not, football fanatics will be the true winners when they return to the South Bay hotel to find crisp cotton-rich linens, custom comforters and ample pillows on luxurious thick mattresses for a sound night's sleep. Comfortable pull-out sofa beds are available for extra guests. Those interested in watching highlights from the game can tune into ESPN or CNN on 25-inch flat-screen TVs.
