NOLA as a New Years getaway?

My girlfriend and I want to get away for a quick New Years vacation and we're considering NOLA. I've never been down to the Big Easy before and need to visit y'all sooner rather than later!

Anyway, just wanted to ask if NOLA is a happening spot for New Years, and if you had any comments or recommendations for visiting NOLA over New Years. We may go the Bucs game on Jan 2 as well, but not sure yet. Want to see what our budget looks like first. Thanks in advance.

Book a hotel early. The Sugar Bowl is usually Jan 1st, and rooms are usually sold out (depending on who's playing) or expensive for what's left. I don't know the exact numbers, but I think the city has a smaller number of hotel rooms downtown than pre-Katrina levels. Even staying farther out in Metairie/Kenner or on the West Bank might be where you end up depending on the Sugar Bowl crowds.
