I spent an afternoon at this hotel (lunch and poolside), so I cannot comment on the rooms.
Djibouti City is a terrible place. Way too expensive for what you get (along with the entire country, but at least other parts of the country can be interesting), and the Sheraton epitomizes this notion. The restaurant was WAY overpriced for the quality of service and food. The buffet lunch was over $30 USD, which is laughable. Other plates are overpriced as well. Also, when I tried to pay with a credit card the entire waitstaff had a fit. Are you serious? You are an international hotel chain AND It clearly states that you accept cc, so what's the problem?? They told me there was a minimum of approx $20 USD. Again, you are an international hotel chain, you don't have minimums on cc (especially if you don't even post it anywhere). It's not like I was trying to use a cc on a $2 purchase, my bill was approx $13 USD. In the end I argued and they let me pay, but the attitude I could certainly do without.
In general, the facilities are not that nice. The pool area is shoddy and the reception unwelcoming.
Bottom line, avoid Djibouti City if possible. If not, look elsewhere for food/drink.
