New Orleans has long been a mecca for travelers looking to connect with a city rich in black cultural heritage, and a new black-owned hotel aims to continue the tradition of African American entrepreneurship in the Big Easy.

 

The first hotel from Homage Hospitality, The Moor is a contemporary boutique property on Canal Street that aims to celebrate the unique, multicultural core of New Orleans with a space that is chic and welcoming. The Moor opened its doors in early July, and the property is poised to be a go-to for those that want to celebrate and support black-owned businesses during a visit to New Orleans.

Made up of four suites, The Moor mixes historical art, neutral tones and old world finishes with chic décor inspired by Africa and present-day New Orleans. Built in 1921, the property was originally a Spanish-colonial home, which is fitting since The Moor is meant to make guests feel like they are at home.

 

 

Founded in Oakland by Howard University alums Damon Lawrence and Marcus Carey, Homage Hospitality has plans to open a second property in Oakland called The Town Hotel in 2019.
