We all love the antique charm of New Orleans' architectural gems, but personally, I like a nice modern hotel room to come back to at the end of the day. And Loft 523 was the perfect "home base" for a three-day weekend with friends. First off, just the fact that there's no address or signage is cool...it feels like a well-kept secret. The lobby offers a taste of what to expect in the rooms...modern, minimalist, tasteful, hip. Our room and bathroom were huge...one just has to appreciate concrete floors and minimal furnishings. But the amenities were all there: robes and slippers, coffee machine, flat-screen TV, Frette lnens on a comfortable platform bed, etc. At the last minute we upgraded to a superior room so we could get one of the cool bathtubs, which came in handy for soaking tired feet at the end of a long day/night of walking. Two in our traveling party are nearly 60, and the other two are 20-somethiings, and we all loved the accommodations. Furthermore, the front desk staff were very friendly and helpful...even when, on our way out Saturday morning, we gave them a list of four things in our room that needed to be fixed, By the time we returned "home," we had a new iPod docking station, a repaired Fortuny lamp, and a perfectly-draining sink...only the small refrigerator remained lukewarm (but 3 out of 4...!!!). And when we came in absoloutely famished really late one night, Iggy the night clerk printed out menus for a 24-hour delivery place and brought the food to our room himself. This hotel is a sister property of International House, which is around the corner; We ducked into the IH bar one evening, but left when we could not get waited on by "Morticia," who refused to make eye contact...left a bad taste for that fancier/more expensive hotel. If you're looking for a hip place to stay that's away from the Quarter's madness, but within easy walking distance, this is it!
