New Orleans is overflowing with famous, historic attractions. Her sights and sounds can entice visitors to wander her streets until dawn, as integral to her rhythm as the jazz riffs that escape the clubs and lure those outside to dance. The official hotel for Phoenix Rising, the Sheraton New Orleans, is right across the street from the French Quarter. Between the hotel's stunning lobby bar and views from the Mississippi River to Lake Pontchartrain we hope you find time to venture outside her walls into the city.

Travel to New Orleans is surprisingly easy, as her airport is serviced by several major airlines and an interstate runs right through her heart. The airport is close to downtown and attendees should expect baggage claim to hotel check-in to take no more than an hour — unless you encounter one of New Orleans' numerous parades! Driving directions, as well as bus and train information, are included.

Please use this section of our website to not only learn about hotel and travel options, but to explore the Crescent City virtually before you arrive. We've included a list of popular attractions, though we're certain you'll want to explore her riverboats, cemeteries, mansions and clubs for yourself. You'll also find further information, including weather, transportation and safety tips.

If you have questions or concerns about the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel, traveling to or around New Orleans, or attractions, please e-mail us at
