My partner and I love this hotel. The decor is gorgeous and the rooms are very spacious! My partner got very sick on the day of our check out and they extended our checkout time with no problems. We stayed for three nights and did not notice any noise from the bar. The rooms are huge and the bath tub... More

We really did enjoy our stay here. The room is very spacious and I loved the decor. Super comfy bed and a huge bathroom with a bath and shower and Aveda products which was a great touch. A couple of things which could be improved though - our loo didn't flush well at all, Internet very patchy and weak shower.... More

Good service, huge room and modern "hipster" hotel. No problem with noise from the bar (noted by some reviewers) and room facing (non-busy)street on 3rd floor was quiet. About 2 blocks to Canal St, the edge of the French Quarter, and Harrahs. A bit further to the convention center. Will definitely stay here again.

LOFT 523 – a small boutique hotel with impeccable design. The P1 penthouse had a gorgeous floor to ceiling windows with open airy space, very sparsely furnished and a huge terrace with lounge chairs, mattress bed and tables. I would so love to have this place in New York, in my dreams. As soon as you open the door to... More

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

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
