NOPSI Hotel - luxurious hotel powers up New Orleans' Central Business District

nopsie_logo_circles1 - lighter blue

The historic headquarters of the former New Orleans Public Service, Inc., (NOPSI) has been reinvented as a luxury 217-room hotel called NOPSI Hotel, New Orleans. Located in the city’s vibrant Central Business District on the corner of Baronne and Union streets, the nine-story brick building originally opened in 1927.

It reopened in summer 2017 after a meticulous restoration returned each space to its previous splendor, including the building’s street facades, cast iron rails and stone panels. The NOPSI Hotel includes some of the most refined accommodations in the city – including 76 suites – a lively and regionally inspired restaurant, 10,000 square feet of architecturally significant indoor and outdoor meeting space, and a sophisticated rooftop pool and bar.

NOPSI is the acronym of New Orleans’ former utility company and transit operator. Thousands of manhole covers still bear the NOPSI name, adding a sense of nostalgia to many of The Crescent City’s streets. Conveniently situated in the heart of the Central Business District within a short walk of The French Quarter, The Warehouse District and The Garden District, the NOPSI Hotel is located near Lafayette Square and close to major attractions like the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and the World War II Museum.
