My boyfriend and I stayed here for a few nights and enjoyed our visit. We stayed in the artist loft. It had high ceilings, large windows, beautiful artwork, modern style furniture, large bathtub, large bed, and adjustable AC/Heat system. It was very quiet during the day and we could hear people at the bar at night, but we weren't bothered... More

I would highly recommend the Loft 523 property, not only where the staff friendly but they have a great style that flows from the front door to your room. Since it is not on a main street it is quite at nite and a nice place to go back to after a nice of having fun. Loft 523 is not... More

Travelled to New Orleans for conference, I wanted something comfortable and quiet so thought hotel outside of French Quarter would be better. First the room is very sparse, more so than the photos suggest. Rooms have near bare walls, concrete floors, and sheer curtains so there is no sound proofing. Meaning if your neighbors are loud you will hear it.... More

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your thoughts and are sorry that we did not meet your expectations. We do hope that you visit NOLA again and perhaps next time try our other property that might be more of what you are looking for. More

Not everyone that comes to New Orleans is here to drink and spend all night on Bourbon St - some of us are actually here for a convention and need to work. After getting up at 5am, flying the majority of the day with a connection, setting up my booth, dinner .. All I wanted was a good night's sleep.... More

The hotel staff was extremely helpful and friendly! However, the hotel needs some serious work. The lights in the bathroom are dim at best. The noise level was as if I was sitting in the bar across the street drinking with the party people. I paid the same for my room that my friends paid yet I didn't have a... More

I really buy the concept and the intention but the delivery is average at best. The physical facility is showing the signs of age and lack of attention to detail. It's time for management to actually inspect their rooms. Careful though, it's going to result in some costs associated with simple maintenance. The staff was very nice and casual about... More

We stayed at room 2b, exactly as described by the pictures, the staff was very acomodating, and helpfull. The room: it was comfy but needed more light, and it was very noisy, you could hear people talking in the streets, and for some reason, being on a side street gets a lot of traffic from trucks, ambulances, etc. I would...

See earlier review...I am also in Room 4a weeks later and the problems still exist. If the bathroom sink does not drain - FIX IT - so the next guest does not get pissed off when they spit toothpaste in the drain and it doesn't go down. The concept of the hotel is great. Modern, clean and very hip. But... More

Thank you for your comments. We do appreciate them and are in the midst of addressing the challenges. I assure you that they will be done before your return visit. The one thing that will not change is our signage. Loft 523 is for those that wish to be off of the beaten path. Again, I really appreciate your comments.... More

We stayed at Loft 523 for our Birthday Weekend in NoLA. While the hotel is a little hard to find from the outside it gives an air of exclusivity without ego. Out of all the New Orleans hotels we had looked at we chose this one due to it's difference. Other hotels are quintessentially French and upscale, while Loft 523... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
