    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.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    Me and my buddies are taking a luxury RV down. Long ride but hell, it beats shelling out all that money for a hotel/flight.

    Staying about an hour out of town in Hammond. Doesn't look like there is any transportation from that far out into NO. Any ideas on places where we can drive to, park and take a shuttle, or street car into town?

    Can you park in the Superdome parking lot? And just stay there after tailgating? I was contemplating that, if we're unable to scalp tickets close to gametime. Maybe we could join up!

    Downsizing the tailgate and then heading over to the French Quarter to find a place to watch the game. Parking prices are crazy in the area of the Dome so we plan to move over a bit (thanks to suggestions from NOLA). Would enjoy getting folks together and turning one of those fine NO establishments into the second Ravenstown South (the Dome will be the original).
