We stayed at Loft 523 February 25-27 2005. Like others have mentioned it can be noisy particularly if you stay in one of the front rooms. Our room faced the street and the noise was quite incredible. We did not experience the bar noise although we were out later than the bar was opened. On the subject of the bar... More

Ok. There are several things I loved about our room at Loft 523. First, we were in penthouse room 2 (P2) which meant we got a huge room and a freakin' awesome bathroom. The room was very zen- which I loved. The bed was low to the ground, in a separate lil' section of the room, and the lighting was... More

Loft 523 is one of the more imaginatively designed hotels I have enjoyed, despite a few problems. While the bar noise never penetrated our penthouse sanctuary, I can readily understand why other commentators would be upset. Water pressure and temperature weren't great but neither were they awful. The hotel has no food facilities; if you want breakfast in the hotel,... More

Loft 523 is a must stay in New Orleans. After staying on Bourbon Street across from Rick's Cabaret, Loft 523 was a welcome change. Located just far enough from the Quarter to give you some piece of mind. Stayed in a fabulous loft style room. Every detail had been tended to. The bed was glorious, audio and visual equipment to...

This place is as wonderful as the description on their website says - very peaceful and zen like, with hints of the old architecture still evident in most of the rooms. The bed and the linens were some of the best I've ever slept on and the bathroom is gorgeous - all in a cream colored limestone. That being said,... More

I had already made reservations for three separate business trips when I came upon this site and all its reviews. Despite the common complaint of constant noise, I figured I should still take the chance since I liked the idea of spacious, open rooms with modern furniture instead of the usual horribly uncomfortable antiques. It paid off. The off-season is... More

I stayed at the Loft 523 last weekend and was highly satisified. The rooms are very large and clean, with a meticulous modern design. The stereo surround sound cd/dvd system and wi-fi internet hookup were much appreciated. The Hotel is located conveniently within a few blocks of the French quarter, the St. Charles Trolley Line, The Canal Street Trolley line... More

The rooms at Loft 523 are great. Plenty of space, comfertable and all the amenities you would need. Our room was on the fourth floor. At night, you can hear the "thump, thump thump" of the lounge on the first floor. When the door opens to the lounge to the outside and you are staying in a room that looks... More

Although the rooms are lovely at Loft 523, beware of what they try to charge you. There were problems with our booking - they had no record of our booking and they admitted that this was their fault. We were told that we could have a room for two nights for an extra $35 per night. When we arrived home... More

Stayed here for a few nights in February and found the noise to be unbearable. Even on the top floor the music from the lobby bar was shaking the walls until the wee hours. The combination of concrete flooring and a huge gap under the door amplified all the hall noise as well. The water was not hot enough and... More
