Since 2011, Pass Christian native Jourdan Nicaud has been in the business of providing people with the delights of southern cuisine.
In mid-July, Nicaud added hotel owner to his resume with the opening of Hotel Pass Christian, which sits behind his restaurant Bacchus on the Beach at 116 W. Scenic Dr.
To date, Nicaud said he has four locations of Bacchus on the Beach in Pass Christian, Biloxi, Madison and Oxford.
He also owns Charred: A Steak and Oyster Bar in Ocean Springs and Billups Breakfast in Oxford.
There are 11 rooms at Hotel Pass Christian: Four king suites; four single queen; two double full and a penthouse suite, Nicaud said.
The rate for a king suite during the week is $199 and $209; $249 and $259 on the weekend.
The rate for a single queen room is $149 and $159 during the week; and $179 and $189 on the weekend.
The rates for a double-full room are $139 during the week and $169 on the weekend.
Each suite features a walk-in shower, tub, living room, king-sized bed and a balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, Nicaud said.
Since its opening, Nicaud said, the hotel has been almost full about 85 percent of the time.
"The response has been absolutely great and the customers enjoy it," he said.
In addition to access to shopping, the beach and local restaurants, Hotel Pass Christian is also home to a private fitness center managed by Patricia Anderson and Elysian Salon and Spa, Nicaud said.
The salon – which is open Tuesday through Saturday – is open to anyone and provides services such as facials, massages, manicures, pedicures, haircuts and styling, Nicaud said.
Sessions with the fitness trainer are available by appointment, he added.
Nicaud said that one of the reasons he wanted to open a hotel is because customers often ask about a place to stay.
"I'm from Pass Christian and want to build it up as much as possible and improve the area," he said. "Hotel Pass Christian gives people a place to stay and be a part of the community."
