    Wow! That's an excellent location. (My wife was born a few blocks from there.) But don't wander too far north or east on foot!

    According to this map, it looks like the Hilton New Orleans Riverside....

    FYI for those who want to linger longer in the French Quarter before the game: The new Loyola Ave streetcar line will open next week, just in time for the Super Bowl. This should shave at least 3 or 4 minutes off the way us mortals used to take by walking the six short blocks from Canal via Loyola to the Dome.

    In any event, 70,000 fans and a new streetcar line could lead to a disaster, so please look both ways before crossing the streetcar tracks.

    Hey guys, new poster. We worked it out with another couple to get a 2BR condo in the Quarter for $600/couple/night. Pricey, but GREAT location (St. Philips below Bourbon) and hotels in the Quarter are $800 or more if you can get them -- which you can't. I was looking around at a lot of VRBO places. This site has a bunch too. http://www.eventhomes.com/2013/super-bowl/ If you can find other people to stay with, you can cut costs. Some nice places in the Garden District.

    Searching online for a place to stay in NOLA and can't find anything less than $1800 a night for a 2 BR. That is a great deal you found.

    I would recommend staying by the Airport and shuttle into the downtown, but I am biased, having lived in the safe suburbs of Jefferson Parish but reading about all the murders and mayhem throughout much of the city while in my safe suburban house.

    So, responding to your "as close as possible to stay" request:

    If you stay in the city, most hotels along Canal Street corridor are fine, particularly as you approach the Mississippi River. These are also the most expensive standard hotels (e.g. Hilton, Doubletree, Marriott) and most likely to be already sold out. Hotels and B&B's in the French Quarter are sometimes in old buildings, but often refurbished rooms. The Garden District has a few boutique hotels. Most downtown hotels are on or just a few blocks from streetcar lines; a rental car would be an expensive liability.

    PM me if you identify a hotel that you are interested in. I have a friends in New Orleans who books rooms for conventions, so I should be able to get her to provide you an unbiased reading on many downtown hotels.

    Hit it.
