I actually got married at this hotel 7 years ago, and this past weekend attended another family wedding held at this hotel. For both events we had a large room block, and were given several executive suites for the family's use during the festivities. I stayed in an jr. executive suite this weekend on the 23rd floor - overlooking Canal Street and the river. This suite was sort of a studio-style with a living room and small kitchenette (fridge, bar sink, coffeemaker - no microwave), and a partial wall with a wall-mounted flatscreen TV dividing the sitting area from the bedroom. The bedroom had a king-size bed with attached bathroom. Again, its only separated by a partial wall, so the bedroom isn't 100% private. Everything appeared recently updated, tasteful, and clean. We requested a crib for our room for our 4 month old baby and we had plenty of room in the bedroom area for it.
I had occasion to visit a higher caliber suite on the 49th floor which served as the bridal suite for this occasion. It was a true one bedroom suite (door closing off bedroom) with attached bath, plus a large living room with tasteful contemporary furniture and flatscreen TV, kitchenette, another full bath and a dining area with 8-seater table. It was spacious and a wonderful gathering spot for the bride, her 8(!) bridesmaids and mother to get ready for the big day.
Suites are given the privilege of an included buffet breakfast served at the Sheraton Club lounge (42nd floor) - it is a perfectly acceptable offering of hot and cold items: scrambled and hard-boiled eggs, grits, oatmeal, breakfast meats, cereals, baked items, fruit, cheeses and deli meats, yogurt, coffees/teas and juices, etc. There isn't anything particularly "New Orleans-y" about it but it'll get you going in the morning. The Club lounge is comfortable - there are several dining tables, but also a few areas with couches/coffee tables.
The wedding events took place in several meeting areas including the Waterbury Ballroom (beautiful and huge crystal chandeliers) and the Armstrong Ballroom (awesome huge window overlooking Mississippi River). The service and catering were all excellent and we had a great time!
