New Orleans is not only older than America itself, but it is a port city, making it an early cultural melting pot. There you will find Jazz, French Creole, Voodoo and more, and we wanted to use all of it as inspiration for a new hotel brand located in the old Warehouse district, The Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery.
The name came from the original address of the building—in all of the historical documents we referenced, the building was always referenced as "The Old No. 77." As for the Chandlery, we wanted to reference the early trade efforts that ship chandlers helped facilitate—think of them as the first Amazon.com.
We were honored to work alongside the talented interiors team Parts & Labor Design in NYC.
