If you are looking for a cozy hotel with lots of amenities, then Loft 523 is NOT for you. This is an artsy, stark garage style loft. No carpeting on the floor, no rugs, no drawers for your clothing, no room service, no amenities of any kind. What this hotel does feature is a huge TV in your room with surround sound. There is free wi-fi and lots of extension cords for all of your devices. The hotel is in close proximity (walking distance) to both the French Quarter and downtown. I was able to walk to the Superdome as well as to Bourbon Street. However, because of that, it is very noisy during the nights. Also, keep in mind that there is no address on the property so you have to "know" where you are going to even find it. There is someone at the front desk 24 hours, but I was there for 5 nights and never found a person at the desk who was actually helpful. When I would ask for a hairdryer, I was told "I don't know if we have those", when I would ask for help calling a cab, I was told "Walk to the hotel across the street because cabs don't like coming here," one time I went down to ask for a recommendation for breakfast and the guy told me he "had been sick all day". So if you plan to stay here, just be prepared to be on your own. There are two really cool features of this hotel - one is the beautiful doors to the rooms which are the nicest thing about the property. The other is the bathtub which is huge (but no bath salts or bubble bath is provided - remember: no amenities here). They have "now" and "later" signs to request cleaning of your room, and those work really great. I turned mine to "now" and someone was there in less than 5 minutes - so I am guessing they have video monitoring of the doors in some way. In summary, this was one of those "quirky" "unique" "artsy" hotels that had I known what it was, I would never have stayed there and I would not stay there again. But, if you like that kind of thing, you will love Loft 523.
