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.

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.
