Location Information

The newly renovated Sheraton New Orleans Hotel overlooks the French Quarter and is just steps from the famous streetcars which run up Canal Street and to the Garden District. The regular guest room rates are $189 single or double, while the club level is $219 single or double, excluding taxes and fees. LERN has once again secured rooms on the Club level for a very small premium. They quickly sold out in 2011 and we expect that the demand will be high again. The complimentary amenities on this level include continental breakfast, Wi-Fi in the lounge, bottled water, and evening hors d’ oeuvres.

The hotel provides the following complimentary services in the lobby: Wi-Fi service, as well as five computers and printers (first 5 pages are free).

To make reservations, call (888) 627-7033 or visit SheratonNewOrleans.com.

Reservations must be made by 5 p.m. (CT) Tuesday, Nov. 10, but it is very likely that the room block, especially the Club Level, will sell out well in advance of this date. A portion of the room rate is used to offset conference expenses.
