Mercedes-Benz Superdome Suite Renovations

The renovation of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome’s 400-level suites was the first since Hurricane Katrina. As part of a larger package of upgrades to the stadium, the suites were totally gutted and rebuilt in one off-season.

The renovation removed the old suites’ individual restrooms as those were constructed before the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act mandated restroom size. It was more efficient to offer blocks of restrooms on the concourse rather than private ones in each suite. In the end, the change created more space within the suites themselves making them more spacious for the guests.

Island bars showcase modern white stone waterfall countertops. Sleek wooden millwork integrates sinks, ice holders, coolers, coat and liquor storage.

Each of the renovated 400-level spaces is nearly identical except for square footage, which alters very slightly with the natural curves of the Superdome. The suites range from 22 to 40 seats each.
