Really hard to find 523 Loft if it were not for the Omni Hotel next door ( which has a handy ATM) However, that might be a plus, I'm not sure. I barely saw another soul here during our 3 days stay. It's very pared back to just a front desk- nothing much else but the rooms are great- huge,... More

We stayed for 3 nights in the city,everything you need was rite there in walking distance. The staff was very accommodating to our needs my husband had fell and hurt his knee while we were out and the staff immediately changed our room without even being asked!!! We appreciated everything this hotel staff did for us

This was my first stay at Loft 523, but I will definitely be back. A great location, very nice, clean rooms and the staff is super friendly and helpful. I was able to walk to most destinations downtown and in the French Quarter. Just a delightful hotel.

We stayed for 4 nights from the 2nd to 5th April - check in was very friendly and rooms were lovely. However, we were on 1st floor immediately above the event space adjacent to reception - we returned on the first night just after midnight and there was a party with live music in the event space. We went up... More

First, I will start with the positives, this is a small, boutique hotel with a very modern, minimalist aesthetic as previous reviewers have noted. It was exactly what I was looking for as I have grown tired of the mega-chain hotels like the Marriotts, Sheratons and Hyatts. There is no onsite restaurant but you are literally steps away from some... More

My husband and I chose Loft 523 for our New Orleans honeymoon and we couldn't have been more delighted. The staff was kind, attentive and helpful with directions, recommendations and calling cabs. Upon arrival we were given a handwritten note welcoming us to Loft 523, congratulating us on our marriage and explaining that we had been upgraded to the penthouse... More

After having booked this hotel through a third party on the basis of its location, we were pleasantly surprised to find it to be the perfect hotel. Everything from the personable staff to the intelligently designed rooms was beyond our expectations. We were there for our honeymoon and were surprised to find that we had been upgraded to a penthouse... More

I thought the staff was very excellent. The room was awful. Unless you like cold and stark, do not stay here. I was traveling alone, and the review I read made it sound real hip and cool. I felt very uncomfortable and depressed in the room. The floor was cement. The sofa was hard. It had strange clunky noises during... More

I really, really enjoyed staying at this hotel - while everyone else at the conference I was attending stayed at the typical, big, generic conference hotel about 1/2 mile away. The hotel is situated at the edge of the warehouse district in an actual former warehouse. The design elements are fabulous - original brickwork, reclaimed pressed tin ceiling tiles on... More

My wife and I planned a little kid-free trip over spring break. We chose this hotel based on price and location. That is to say that this hotel was competitively priced given its amenities and proximity to the French Quarter. We were actually upgraded to a suite on the penthouse floor at no additional charge, so bonus points there. The... More
