The Sheraton is a large, mid-range business hotel located right on the border of the French Quarter and the Central Business District. It features 1,100 spacious rooms with modern technology -- such as flat-screen TVs -- great beds, and clean bathrooms with shower/tub combos. The large fitness center, extensive meeting space, and on-site dining options will appeal to business travelers, but the rooftop pool, two art galleries, and central location make it a solid pick for leisure travelers as well.
A chain hotel popular with business travelers and families
The Sheraton is a popular pick among business travelers for its convenient location on the border of the Central Business District and its many business-oriented services and amenities. The huge lobby, with soaring floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Canal Street and a bar offering drinks and food well into the evening, is always busy with travelers in town for business.
Rates are similar to those of comparable business hotels in the area, but the features -- including the rooftop pool and the great gym -- make this a somewhat more attractive pick for some travelers. Rooms are spacious and contemporary, if more business-oriented than stylish.
For a few extra conveniences, guests might want to consider upgrading to the Club Level, which offers free continental breakfast, free evening hors d’oeuvres, free Internet access, and free beverages in the Club Lounge, located on the 42nd floor and offering stunning river and city views.
Right on the border of the French Quarter and the Central Business District
The Sheraton has a central location on Canal Street, the border between the hopping French Quarter and the Central Business District. It is within easy walking distance of streetcars, attractions (such as the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, the Insectarium, Jackson Square, several museums, and the Preservation Hall), and dozens of exceptional restaurants.

Rooms at the Sheraton New Orleans are fairly large and contemporary -- with modern amenities such as flat-screen TVs -- but the dark blue headboards and wood furniture feel a little generic. Most rooms have either city or river views; suites have floor-to-ceiling windows with expansive views.
The hotel features several room types, including a Club Level category that offers perks such as free bottled water, bathrobes, and access to the Club Lounge (where free continental breakfast and evening hors d’oeuvres are served daily).
Guest can join the “Make a Green Choice” program, which saves energy and water.
Aside from a long list of eco-friendly practices -- including Energy Star kitchen appliances, cold cathode bulbs in public spaces, and a paper recycling program -- the hotel offers guests the option of signing up for the Make a Green Choice program upon check-in. Through this initiative, guests decline housekeeping services (but can request restocking of in-room amenities such as toiletries and free coffee at any time), saving up to 37.2 gallons of water, 0.19 KWH of electricity, 25.000 btu of natural gas, and seven ounces of chemicals per night. In exchange, guests get a $5 voucher for use at the hotel’s restaurants (including the Starbucks off the lobby) per night.
Other green practices include:
Energy Star-rated showerheads in all rooms
Low VOC paints
High-efficiency compact fluorescent bulbs
Electrical dimmer boards in meeting rooms
Energy Star kitchen appliances
Recycling program for white paper, newspaper, magazine and telephone books
