New Orleans is definitely the best spot in the country for an event like this. The stadium is within close proximity to all the hotels, which are in close proximity to the french quarter. It's also just a fun city in general. They have all the entertainment options you'd ever want when hosting a big event.
I think the Super Bowl should be limited to only Miami, New Orleans, San Diego and maybe San Francisco (the future new stadium) in general though.

It's not even about the game anymore. This thing is such an event. If I'm spending $2000-$3000 per ticket, I want to go to a nice place like NOLA and really enjoy myself for 3-4 days without having to worry about traveling 20-30 miles to get where I need to be. Especially not in the cold.
They also need to make it on Saturday.
Based on media feedback, they thought the NFL media center and most of the NFL stuff should've been in Fort Worth. Downtown has a better pedestrian atmosphere.
Media loved Indianapolis. The city was great to them and they got all-around good reviews.
Detroit was ok, but the weather is a bit of a deterrent.
SD and maybe Miami won't get another until they get a new stadium. I think.
Houston has a small shot, but it might depend on reviews from All-Star Weekend.
North Texas deserves a redemption super bowl experience.
