Inside New Orleans' Black-Owned Hotel: NOPSI
Sheila Johnson opened NOPSI Hotel in New Orleans on July 6, 2017.
The luxury property is housed in the famous New Orleans Public Service Incorporated building, a former utility and transit facility built in 1927 that went unused since the early 1980s. Sheila’s vision was to return the building to glory and reflect a Jazz era theme, while catering to young visitors looking for a luxe experience.
The hotel has 217-guestrooms and suites, an on-site restaurant and bar, rooftop pool and indoor meeting spaces for wedding ceremonies.
Rooms range in size from 350 to 800-sq. feet, and are pet-friendly. Some rooms even offer views of Mercedes-Benz Superdome Stadium.
But, the bathrooms are the star of the show. The spa-like, modern design includes the ‘largest, most luxurious shower in the city.’
Pro Tip: Check-in to the “Power Suite” for the ultimate luxury experience.
Nopsi has several on-site amenities including: Public Service, and on-site restaurant whose menu is an ode to the fishermen and farmers of the Gulf Coast Region. Henry’s Gin Bar, is a bar and lounge catering to “Ramos Gin Fizz” lovers far and wide. Above the Grid, the rooftop pool and bar, is perfect taking in New Orleans’ downtown views while taking a dip in the pool.
Pro Tip: End your night with the Crème brûlée cheesecake from Public Service and the Ramos Gin Fizz from Hendry’s Gin Bar.
