Hundreds upon hundreds of Chiefs fans booked reservations at the Downton Marriott ahead of the Super Bowl LVII parade.
Locals are learning after our latest Super Bowl parade that there are things that make celebrating easier.
“We traveled all the way from Johnson County,” said Rojanae Williams, a Chiefs fan. “We celebrate Valentine’s Day with teenage boys while they still let us, and we end our date with a parade. As moms with our boys to do something special, we will all remember for a lifetime.
From Lenexa, Overland Park, Belton, Grandview and Independence, the vast majority of reserves are local.
Many of the fans KSHB 41 spoke to say they learned their lesson from the latest Super Bowl parade.
“A thousand people who don’t want to deal with traffic in the morning,” said Derek McCann, chief executive officer of the Downtown Marriott.
McCann said right after the championship win, bookings were hot.
“A couple hundred within the first hour after booking,” McCann said.
Lake Williams talked about who he’s most excited to see.
“I can’t wait to see Travis Kelce, my tight end, right here Nick Bolton, line backer,” Williams said.
Shelly Todd said her family booked weeks ago.
“We made our reservations weeks ago,” Todd said. “We knew they were going to win. We’re all the way from Wellington, Missouri – to walk up to Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes, get an autograph, take a selfie, hug and say hello.
