That's what I was going to ask...looking for decent, near the stadium, and under $120 (this girl is broke!)...

I know NOTHING about New Orleans, so take this with a grain of salt, but I enjoy planning imaginary vacations, and it looks like the Holdiay Inn Downtown Superdome is close, and it's $130 for the night of the concert, which didn't seem too bad to me.

If you're game for a hostel, the Auberge NOLA Hostel looks to be pretty close and gets great reviews. Have to be from out of state.

I am a former resident and may be able to help a bit.

Sadly, there is no beach in the way that I believe you are asking.  For a proper Gulf beach, the closest option would be Mississippi.  However, there are a number of places where you can get a view of Lake Pontchartrain or the River. 

As for hotels, there are a lot of good options, including the Holiday Inn (Superdome) referenced above.  However, it would not be my first choice.  Primarily, if the Hyatt and Hyatt House are outside of your price point, I would look first to the other hotels along Poydras.  They are within a few blocks of the Superdome and are a very easy walk.  A lot of concertgoers will be doing the same.  I would consider:  Staybridge Suites (standard business hotel), Homewood Suites (same), and The Whitney (a Wyndham boutique hotel in an old bank).  There are numerous other hotels along the same stretch, including the Hilton Riverside at the end of Poydras.  It is a longer walk, but it is the largest hotel in town and you can often get a good rate at the last minute.  Finally, you might consider The Pavillion, which would be very close and is a traditional New Orleans hotel with "character." 

I will try to check back periodically to see if you have additional questions.

I'll be going to this show. I've been to New Orleans before, but not for a concert, and I've never been to the Superdome. I'm going with my family so hopefully it will be safe, lol. If anyone has any info about parking or if it's a safe walk from a nearby hotel, I would love to know. I'm looking at several nearby hotels at the moment and there seems to be quite a bit of rooms still available, so I just want to make a good choice. Would appreciate any kind of info. Thanks. Just noticed the post above this one. I'll check those hotels out.

I'll be there if I'm not still working in Houston. One thing you want to do is pay very close attention to the weather right now. Harvey moved back into the Gulf and is forecast to head north again toward the Louisiana Gulf Coast. The last news from NOLA was that they still had pumps out (pumping capacity was at 90%) so there could be significant flooding.
