My girl friend was staying here for her birthday weekend, so I booked a room for myself. I stayed with her the first night since she had a room for 2 nights (her husband stayed the 2nd night) and had my own room for the 2nd night. I was hoping to get moved into my room early since I had... More

..... and friendly, comfortable and quiet! Great stay during jazz fest, perfect location, close to everything but allowing you to retreat for some shut-eye whenever you feel like it. Helpful and discreet staff, hip furniture, amazing bathroom... what's not to love?

Our second stay at Loft 523 did not disappoint. Friendly staff and great accomodations round out this small boutique hotel just outside the French Quarter. The rooms are large with very high ceilings, huge windows and a contemporary "loft" style decor. Nice contrast to the usual NOLA hotel experience. I highly recommend.

We visited in March 2014, a time of year when New Orleans is pleasantly cool for wandering and exploration. The hotel is in an excellent location for the central city and French Quarter. We had a junior suite: a large, minimally furnished room, but pleasant and comfortable. The staff were friendly, and helpful in giving city advice. The hotel has... More

We stayed here for a week, the hotel has a computer right next to the concierge desk. An employee of the Gravier Street Social Club, which is the bar in their lobby, took it upon themselves to post remarks about lesbians on our business FB page, creating a firestorm for us when we returned back east. This kind of invasion... More

A few years ago there was a lot of press about the young Senior High School female student who was not allowed to attend her prom with another female. There was not a lot of press about us offering to host and pay for the entire prom to take place at our hotel...only if the female was allowed to attend... More

Stayed here for the weekend for a pre- birthday/ and a wedding! I loved this location! Rooms are very spacious and bathrooms are huge. This is the hotel for you if you love modern spaces. Everything about the hotel screams modern. Platform bed is very comfortable, spoon tub was wonderful along with the shower. Room did not feel like a... More

Our room was wonderful. We loved the design of the room, it was so open and spacious. The bathroom was big with plenty of counter space. It was nice and quiet as well, though we visited in a slower time of year. The location was unbelievable. Walking distance to all the sights, and great restaurants close by.

Our one-night stay here was very pleasant, with all as it should be -- clean room, quick service at the desk, and relative quiet. As another reviewer noted, it did take a little doing to spy the street number, but it was easy once we saw the clear 520 address across the street. The name and number are cleverly spread... More

My husband and I spent one evening at the Loft 523 (we were supposed to stay for three). I knew the minute I walked in it wasn't for me. It is very minimalist - not warm or inviting at all. Our room was sparse with all concrete floors. The art was weird and even the bedding was on the minimal... More

Quiet area in NOLA just a couple blocks from the French Quarter. Very modern and cool atmosphere. Perfect for a nice getaway. This was our first trip there and we really liked the place. Surely we'll try to come back to Loft 523.
