Sheraton New Orleans Hotel Launches $45 Million Renovation
NEW ORLEANS—Sheraton Hotels & Resorts announced it has embarked on a $45 million renovation of the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel, resulting in a floor-to-ceiling transformation of the hotel’s 1,100 guest rooms and suites, Sheraton Club Lounge, meeting facilities, and lobby. Slated for completion in 2013, the renovation is part of an ongoing effort to enhance Sheraton hotels across the globe, following the recently completed $6 billion brand-wide revitalization.

“The comprehensive renovation to the Sheraton New Orleans underscores our commitment to attracting an even larger segment of the meetings and convention business in this vibrant city,” said Denise Coll, president of the North America Division for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., in an announcement. “New Orleans’ indomitable spirit and historic charm have made the city one of the nation’s leading tourism destinations, as well as a top choice for meeting planners.”
The highlight of the refurbished lobby will be the brand’s Link@Sheraton experienced with Microsoft—the brand's social hub where travelers can stay connected with access to information and technology for work, leisure, and social networking. This space will be equipped with new seating, new carpeting, lighting, a water feature, wireless connectivity, and direct access to the hotel’s Starbucks coffee shop and Pelican Bar. Other improvements to the lobby include the recent installation of high-speed efficiency elevators and new revolving doors.
The hotel's Pelican Bar will be updated with new gas lamps and wall sconces, new bar seating, communal tables and group seating, all-new flooring, and tile mosaics. Renovations on the bar are expected to be completed in September 2012.
The property's meeting and event facilities are also part of the renovation project. The Waterbury and Napoleon Ballrooms have both been updated and the Grand Ballroom and Grand Ballroom pre-function space will get new carpeting, wall coverings, lighting, and new furnishings.
All guestrooms and suites will be fully renovated and furnished with an oversized work desk, custom-designed ergonomic chair, high-speed Internet, LCD flat-panel television, MP3 docking station and the all-white Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed. Bathrooms will be redone with new vanities, backlit mirrors, and a collage of local artwork.
