Checking out the new NOPSI Hotel in New Orleans

Checking out the new NOPSI Hotel in New Orleans

I'm back in New Orleans, and I finally had a chance to check out the new NOPSI Hotel in the CBD. It was originally constructed in 1927 as the headquarters for New Orleans Public Service Inc. (NOPSI), the city’s former utility company and transit operator, so its super historic, and they did a great job preserving the "bones" of the building. There are 217 guest rooms (including 76 suites) that are done well, a restaurant, meeting spaces and a great rooftop bar and pool. Take a look!
