I checked into this place for one night after staying in a Marriott all week, and was very happy I did! If you love the idea of a NYC loft, then this is a great place for you. I stayed on a Sunday so the bar and club in the lobby area were closed, and therefore it was extremely quiet. If you have a lot of luggage, there is no bell man and only one front desk person, and a cart you can use to carry your own luggage to your room which is somewhat inconvenient. There is also no food or mini bar, so I would say it’s more like an apartment than a hotel room. There is a market just down the block to get snacks and water, so not a huge deal. I did not experience any terrible water pressure problems as listed in some of the reviews, and the lighting in the room was soft and relaxing. The bed was divine! Also the heating/ac was quiet and didn’t blow air directly on you like a lot of hotels. The only minor complaint I had was the TV - a very small, outdated, non-HD relic which was a bummer because I had planned on watching tv all Sunday night. They should upgrade these. In any case I would probably stay here again because I loved the big space, amazing bed and peace and quiet.

When I got to the hotel, my room was cancelled without notice. I was really looking forward to the huge couples bathtub and the rooftop. The staff could have phoned us and told us what was going on. Instead there was just a note on the door stating it was closed due to an emergency. I phoned the general manager and she seemed not to care and felt that we should have been satisfied because they transferred our reservation to another property. She stated she would look into it and would call me back. It’s been almost a week and she hasn’t called back yet. Extremely unprofessional! Christy Phillips

Only visited New Orleans for a short period before Christmas and searched high and low for a nice hotel to stay at. Loft 523 was a nice change from all the other “French-inspired” hotels, providing a modern contemporary feel. The biggest draw for my girlfriend and I was the ENORMOUS bathtub. While we did enjoy our stay, there were some negatives to the room. For one, the sliding door to the bathroom didn’t close and the lock/handle on the door was broken. The double headed shower in the bathroom was quite poor and the temperature handle in the shower was also rubbish - a touch too far and it was too hot, a touch not far enough was too cold. No ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ moment. On the positive side of things, the room we had was enormous and minimalistically designed, the bed was comfortable, and we were in a great location for the things we wanted to do while in New Orleans. Would recommend and would stay at again!

Huge room with a sofa, coffee table and a desk. Most comfy hotel bed I have ever slept on. Maybe the most comfy bed I have ever slept on PERIOD. Great artwork. Perfect location. Super friendly staff. Was not a huge fan of the shower (had a hard time figuring out on/off knob), but, hey, it's just a shower. In no way did it really affect the rest of my stay. Wish I had booked for more than one night. Will certainly stay here again. Loved it

The staff was friendly and we liked the location as it was away from craziness from the French Quarter but walking distance to it all. However we will not be back for 2 main reasons. 1 the water pressure was absolutely horrible. It was like taking a shower under a dripping faucet and the lighting was not something for us. Very dull lighting. Unfortunately, our flight was delayed and we were forced to stay another night. Since we didnt get a good enough shower the whole time we were there we actually decided to stay at another hotel for half the amount and got to finally have a nice hot shower.

We appreciate you choosing to stay with us and thank you for the feedback. The water pressure was low on occaiton while you were with us and sadly it was a city challenge in our area. All businesses were affected. We do hope the you will choose to stay with us again.
