Even non-football fans have figured out SUPER BOWL XLVII is happening in New Orleans this weekend.
While the top hotel rooms sold out long, long ago, there's still a few ways to get in on the action in town.
Stalk the Teams at These Hotels: Conde Nast Traveler told us where the AFC and NFC champs are staying. The San Francisco 49ers will be shacking up at the New Orleans Marriott while the Baltimore Ravens are spending the night at the Hilton Riverside. There aren't any rooms available for you, of course, but there's nothing stopping you from hitting up the hotel's restaurants and bars to spy on some past and future gridiron greats.
Take a Chance on Craigslist: Now that we're just days away from the Big Game, folks in the Big Easy are getting desperate with their hotel room offerings. There are several available on Craigslist right now. You can peruse the options here.. As always, with Craigslist, USE CAUTION when buying a hotel room. Make them show you a confirmation email before you fork over any money.

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.

Know of a hotel room open that's close to the Superdome in New Orleans? Let us know!
As we head into the final weeks of the NFL Playoffs, the mad scramble for hotel rooms in New Orleans, where Super Bowl XLVII will be held, has already begun. We told you that way back in October most of the hotels in the Big Easy were sold-out and that's still true.
Right now, doing a quick check on Expedia we see the usual budget suspects--anything with Inn in the second half of its name--in less-than-desirable areas of New Orleans still open for $300+ a night. So there is availability during Super Bowl weekend. But is it the kind you want?
Starting next week we'll be keeping our eyes out on who still has Super Bowl hotel rooms open, from the usual suspects like hotel booking sites and the official Super Bowl reservations site (at FanExperiences.com) to less conventional places like AirBnB.com, Craigslist, and our ever trusty HotelChatter tipline.
No matter where you begin your search for hotel rooms though, the same rules apply for finding a hotel deal for Super Bowl:
