We spent 2 nights here for the New Orleans/Green Bay football game. The hotel was overbooked so our room was downsized and the other couple we went with, their room was up graded. Funny thing we both paid the same price. What's up with that? First the bathroom....the faucet comes so far into the middle of the vessel sink that... More

Loft 523, a converted 19th century forage warehouse in the Central Business District is way cool to see and lovely to stay at. Rates high as a small boutique hotel. Big, clean, quiet rooms, friendly, helpful front desk staff. Also, perfectly located near the French Quarter & the Warehouse District with its art galleries & trendy restaurants. Easy access to...

This hotel has a very convenient location and a flair for style, but at a cost. Our room was on the second floor facing the street. There is an all-night bar across the street and the patrons are very noisy when they leave late at night. Garbage trucks pick up and drop off bins; their hydraulics and backup beeps would... More

We just returned from four nights at loft 523 hotel. This hotel is the little sister of The international house located nearby. the international house is much larger and offers a more elegant hotel experience and associated amenities. We chose the loft 523 as we prefer small boutique high design properties. This hotel fit that bill. it is minimal in... More

It being my first trip to New Orleans, my husband and I couldn't have asked for a better place. The staff was super friendly and helpful, although at least half were terrified of our dogs. It is always nice, to not only have a wonderful place to stay but also be able to have our 3 Great Danes with us.... More

I really liked Loft 523 the location is perfect and hidden from the crowds. The minimalist decor and art made for a comfy room. High celiings, probably 15 feet gave a huge feel to the rooms size. The bath, complimented by Aveda products fit well into the design. My only issue was the second floor room I occupied facing Gravier... More

If you're looking for something a bit different and a bit of a treat, Loft 523 fits the bill. We were lucky enough to be given an upgrade on check in, and were in one of the Penthouses... one of the most gigantic rooms I have ever seen. The rooms are very cool, with some beautiful furniture and art work... More

We were in town for a wedding and decided we didn't want to stay at the wedding hotel. Both of us travel for work and wanted a more boutique feeling hotel, this was the perfect spot. When we arrived at the unassuming front door we were a little skeptical; we went in anyway. The person at the front desk was... More

Let me start by saying I've had the pleasure of staying at Loft 523 three times during my twice yearly visits to NOLA. After staying at some of the "old guard" properties in the city, it was so refreshing to find Loft 523. A boutique property that's on trend and stylish, the rooms are massive for NOLA, around 700 square... More

Super sexy room. Close to Bourbon, casino, and cruise terminal. Can't wait to go back. Great people and fantastic price. Oh! The room!!!! Wife was a bit upset that room did not have the tub shown in their ad, but for me the shower made up for it. Ask if you're getting tub or shower.
