New Orleans hotels are getting booked up fast ahead of Sunday's NFC Championship game.

Industry leaders say it's primarily Saints fans getting rooms, not those visiting to support the Los Angeles Rams.

The city's convention and visitors bureau predicts 96% of downtown hotel rooms will be booked for Saturday before the game.  That compares to 94.4% for January 13th of last year, the day before the Saints took on the Minnesota Vikings in the divisional playoff.
