Unlike other major urban areas, the quality of hotels in the towns surrounding New Orleans make it more difficult for the region to absorb overflow from the event.
Out-of-town football fans who plan to attend the Super Bowl in New Orleans and are on the hunt for a hotel room better prepare themselves for sky-high dollar signs. According to a new survey from Cheaphotels.org, with just a little over two months to go until game day, hotel rates in New Orleans are skyrocketing for the Super Bowl weekend of February 1-4.
The main reason for the high price tags is that only around a dozen hotels in New Orleans and its suburbs currently have available rooms. On average, these accommodations are raising their rates by 304%, the survey found.
