Where to Get Hotel Rooms for Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans

January 15, 2013 at 10:09 AM | by | ()

Know of a hotel room open for Super Bowl? Tell us where right here.

After a nail-biting weekend of football--it was especially gut-wrenching for Seattle and Denver fans--the teams now vying for a Super Bowl ring are the Patriots, the Ravens, the 49ers and the Falcons. Update: Make that the 49ers and either the Patriots or the Ravens. Update #2: The 49ers and the Ravens will meet in New Orleans for SUper Bowl XLVII!

Are you rooting for one of these teams? Then we're know you aren't going to jinx their chances of making it to the Big Game by booking a hotel room.

BUT just in case you are confident in your team's success and have been devotedly practicing voodoo against the other teams, we've compiled a list of available hotel rooms in New Orleans.

We will be constantly updating this list as we learn of new openings. We expect a bunch more to open up after the NFC and AFC Championships so bookmark this page if you want to go to the Super Bowl. If you know of a place with openings, or better yet, you are a hotel with openings, tell us how to book in comments below! (PS. If you still need a flight to Nola, Jaunted's got the scoop on that. Again, break open your wallet.)

· ST. CHARLES INN: This Best Western in the Garden District let us know they have rooms available for Super Bowl Weekend. We found a non-smoking king room open from January 31-Februay 4 for $850 a night. If you got the cash, hurry up and book now. We don't think it will last long.

· TOP TIER TRAVEL: This brother-sister travel agency has locked up several hotels in New Orleans for Super Bowl like the Four Points by Sheraton on Bourbon Street and the Holiday Inn French Quarter. Those are going for well over a $1,000 a night but the Hampton Inn and Suites Elmwood near the airport is "just" $450 a night. Peruse their options here.

· As we pointed out last week in our 5 Tips for Booking a Hotel Room for Super Bowl, all the good spots are sold-out (usually snapped up by the Big Game's corporate sponsors years in advance.) And the budget places are asking for outrageous rates for the weekend. Case in point, the Holiday Inn Metairie New Orleans Airport is open for $699 a night. But even this low-budget supply is dwindling with only 10 spots available as of January 14.

· FanExperiences.com is the official booking portal recommended by the NFL. The site is only showing nine hotels open for the weekend (Friday-Monday.) Again, these are mostly budget spots and except for the Motel 6 at $399 a night, all of them are outside of New Orleans-- in Baton Rouge or Houma.

· Zilch. But they may release some big game packages closer to the Super Bowl. These will of course be outrageously expensive.

· While inventory in New Orleans was snapped up by big corporate groups a long long time ago, the mobile booking app, HotelTonight, tells us they will have rooms up for sale starting at noon on Super Bowl Sunday. According to the folks at HT, "rooms will be limited and rates will be on the higher-end, but for folks looking for a last-minute option (or a spontaneous trip to New Orleans to enjoy the game) we'll have hotels up!"

· This outfit has snapped up rooms at both the budget and better hotels in town. There are a variety of options from that Holiday Inn by the airport ($475 a night) to the Westin Canal Place/French Quarter ($2,400 a night), almost all of them with four-night minimums.

· Airbnb.com is showing more affordable options in New Orleans during Super Bowl weekend. The good news here is that most places aren't asking for minimum nights. There are also more options to house larger groups of people. However, prices are definitely more expensive than a regular weekend. For instance, this super stylish one-bedroom apartment is going for $1,416 a night during Super Bowl. The next weekend it drops to $624 a night. But this private room in someone's house is going for $258 a night and is just a 20-minute walk to the Superdome. If you're looking for hotel comfort, this Airbnb user has a listing for the Wynhdam La Belle Maison for $439 a night. As always book with caution.

· Dejected fans are hawking their hotels on New Orleans Craigslist. Like this one asking for $3,000 a night at the Wyndham Hotel Barrone Plaza, a place that usually goes for $100 a night. Another person is selling four nights at the Travelodge New Orleans - West Harvey Hotel for just $199 a night. Way cheaper than what we've seen on all the other sites. Again, book with caution.

· Wayne has rooms available at desirable New Orleans hotels but at some hefty rates like $4,000 a night for the Renaissance New Orleans Arts Hotel. On the bright side, it is for a room with double beds meaning you can split that rate.

Hotel rooms for Super Bowl

NOLA.com has an interesting article about hotel room availability in town. They say that the NFL blocks off 90 PERCENT of the hotel rooms in town for team owners, corporate sponsors, etc. They are going to release some of those rooms back to the general public this week. But hotels can ask whatever rates they want for them.

But if you're set on going, definitely reconsider staying in Biloxi or nearby in Mississippi. The hotel and lodging association there is offering free transportation back and forth to New Orleans for any guest who books a minimum of two nights in the area.
hotel in the area.

And if you take up Ann's offer above, the city of Baton Rouge is putting on a two-day Mardi Gras parade and a giant Super Bowl tailgate.
