ACES 2012 | New Orleans

This year’s venue:
Sheraton New Orleans

The Sheraton New Orleans on historic Canal Street is the site of this year’s national conference. The Big Easy landmark is a short walk to Bourbon Street and the French Quarter Festival, which will be taking place during the conference.

It’s also close to great attractions and a host of exciting restaurants. But you might not want to leave: The Sheraton is a four-star hotel with a rooftop pool, a Starbucks and full-service restaurants and bars.


You can reserve a room (single or double) with free WiFi at the special rate of $189 a night plus tax. Daily sessions take place here from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The Sheraton New Orleans is fully booked for Saturday. For those who have not reserved a room, we have some overflow rooms at the W Hotel New Orleans for $179. The reservation number is 877-WHOTELS and you and reserve a room at this link.
