Got a cool $579,000 for a hot stay in New Orleans? A block of 200 rooms on the American Queen Steamboat is available for four nights during Super Bowl 2013, from Jan. 31 to Feb. 4. The floating hotel steamboat will be docked a little more than a mile from the Superdome, about a 20-minute walk to the game.american queen.jpg

What's included are 200 deluxe staterooms and suites aboard the 432-passenger vessel; multiple function rooms; special Super Bowl reception, which provides a one-hour window at beer, wine and snacks; music; bars and lounges open late each night; buffet breakfast daily; nightly maid service; gratuities for ship staff; and city taxes and other taxes on accommodations.

What's not included? Super Bowl tickets. And single rooms are not available, just the 200-room block for a little more than a half-million bucks. But look at it this way: If you break it down, it's $362 per person per night, based on double occupancy. All you need now are 399 more football-loving friends. And of course, tickets to the game.
