Three workers died when several floors of the multi-storey building collapsed on 12 October.
Authorities in the southern US city will now focus on retrieving two bodies still inside the ruined building.
New Orleans mayor LaToya Cantrell said: “We know that we are safer now than we have been in the past eight days.”
The Hard Rock Hotel, which was under construction near the historic French Quarter, partially collapsed on 12 October.
Officials in Louisiana had feared the towers would come down on their own, possibly smashing into nearby buildings or severely damaging underground gas and electric lines.
The cause of the collapse remains unknown.
The Occupational Health and Safety Administration is investigating and, the city’s mayor said evidence gathering began soon after the collapse.
Lawsuits are already being filed against the project’s owners and contractors, on behalf of some of the more than 20 people injured.
