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

While we are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay at International House, our sister hotel, we certainly are sorry that you did not enjoy the room design of Loft 523. We do hope that you will return to NOLA and stay with us again at IH. 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

Stayed at Loft 523 for a long weekend. Our second floor room faced Gravier Street and the windows offered little protection from the outside sounds. There is a bar across the street and a bar in the hotel that had parties going on each night. We could hear loud conversations on the street and shouts from people leaving the party... More

This room was very modern and minimalistic. Spacious rooms with balcony options available. I would recommend this place for a nice getaway that is quite but close to the heart of New Orleans. Anthony Bourdain stayed at this Hotel when filming his 24 hour layover tv show.

I stayed several nights because I like contemporary design and hage big hotels. Here are the drawbacks (many of which i think could be improved upon by the hotel): 1- it's a bit worn down. The doors on the closets are scratched and warn, the concrete floors marked up and the furniture is just quite worn out. 2- you hear... More

If one of these rooms were available as a fully furnished rental I'd want to live here forever and I wish they had this option here because the rooms are so ample and some of these loft spaces have ceilings that reach up to 20 feet high which gives you the feeling that you are in a minimalistic space that...

This place was amazing. Upgraded one of the three penthouse suites. Could not have been more pleased. The service was outstanding. They even kept the upgrade a secret for my new wife. This was our first trip to NOLA and can't wait to go back. Recommend this hotel!!!

Loved the hotel. Breath of fresh air in NOLA! Could easily walk a short distance to everything without being in the middle of the madness of Mardi Gras! On the other side of Canal, so could skirt parades easier. Perfect choice!
