Where to stay if going to superdome

How far is French quarter from superdome?

I am thinking of coming to New Orleans for superbowl

I've never been

While I'd love to be walking distance I'm fairly certain I should stay closer to French quarter for overall experience

Is this correct?

Wen searching (and yes I know hotels are hard but assume they aren't) which areas would you recommend as being acceptable if going to a game and wanting to experience New Orleans

I'm assuming cabs won't be easy nor cheap so want relatively decent walking distance

Thanks in advance for your help!

The great thing about New Orleans is that you can easily walk from the Quarter to the Dome, about 2/3 of a mile from Bourbon/Canal intersection, in 15minutes or so. Unless you have a major mobility issue, it's a fairly easy walk. So feel free to stay in the Quarter to get the max atmosphere. There are also closer properties (the Hyatt is right next door to the Dome). Getting a room and an affordable rate will be the challenge.

The cabs will likely be the only easy and cheap thing. Good luck finding a hotel room at an affordable rate asap! The hotel adjacent to the SuperDome is the Hyatt Regency and from what I hear is super nice with all of its renovations since Hurricane Katrina.

We stayed in the Holiday Inn by the Superdome one year when we came for a game and I would not recommend doing that. It is nothing about the hotels but there is not much around there that we wanted to do. We found ourselves either walking back and forth or taking cabs to the FQ and back. It made it difficult to make a pit stop at the hotel to drop things off or take a break.

I would highly recommend staying near or in the FQ and then taking a cab or walk to the game.

Most anything within the French Quarter or Central Business District (as typically designated) will be within walking distance of the Superdome. However, since you will only being going to the Dome once, and the NFL Experience is going to be in the Convention Center, I would think the ideal location would be within a triangle formed by the Superdome, Convention Center and Jackson Square (heart of the New Orleans experience), more specifically as close as possible to the intersection of St. Charles Ave. (Royal St.) and Canal St.
