Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Loft 523 New Orleans offers a chic industrial charm that captivates guests, particularly noting the spacious and modern rooms with a romantic vibe. However, visitors have experienced a mixed bag in terms of service, with some staff members being praised while others seem less attentive. Cleanliness generally receives high marks, especially the luxurious bathrooms, despite some water pressure gripes. Its central location is a plus for accessibility to local attractions, although noise can be an issue. Room quality appears inconsistent, and while amenities are often appreciated, some guests have encountered issues like weak shower pressure. Opinions on value for money also vary, with some guests questioning the pricing structure.

Upon arrival we noticed that one of the large windows in our room had a sheer curtain but no shade (it was leaning up against the wall). We notified the front desk that afternoon but noone came. The brightness of the room all night was like daylight. I photographed the situation with no flash and presented it to the front desk the next morning. The clerk said she would credit me 25%, however she charged me an additional 25% instead. I contacted her the next day which she said it would be corrected by the manager. I have emailed the manager twice and also asked to speak to him the day I called the hotel to correct the situation. I still have not heard from him, nor had the charge reversed on my credit card. I would never stay at this hotel again, nor recommend it.

No view, and treated like you are the poor relative, put in the back house away from the main house , you have to go across the street to get any service , the valet is nice if you have the time to stand and wait

Loved our stay, very artsy vibe to the place and great location. The main hotel to check in was right around the corner so we were able to walk to check in and then walk right over to the loft we were staying in. Much more relaxed and fit our energy than a large hotel.

I wanted to like this property; the checkin was seamless (if around the corner from the actual property) and quite friendly. The room is laid out nicely and looks great in photos. Sadly, there are some problems: as others have noted the lighting is ridiculously dim - totally inadequate. And ironically the curtains are not dim enough - basically letting in full daylight at dawn. The location is great with nice places to eat and drink within a block, but it's also one of the noisiest places I've ever stayed - those nice antique windows do not keep any noise out. The room was also plagued by a toilet that wouldn't stop running on its own (had to jiggle the handle) . Overall a very nice room that suffers from basic usability and convenience isses.

Our air was out and didn’t get fixed until 2 days into our stay. We were overcharged based on the original email, and when I pointed it out to the staff, they couldn’t make it right. Said I had to email their manager. Overall, it was overpriced for the lack of attention we got. I also shouldn’t have to point out you’re overcharging me based on the agreed upon amount.

2. Is even high for a rating. And only reason I have done a 2. Is because of the staff that went the extra mile to take care of my problems. The property is unmanned and does not have a bar and barely has hot water. And when rooms are not being used they shut the water off. So when I got in at 1 am I had no hot water. Switched rooms in the morning and there was a little Hot water in the shower and sink was really warm. Now. How does that make sense. The engineer got us kinda squared away. But u would get more water out of a drinking fountain than those showers. Double shower head and barely wet. We booked on Expedia and pictures looked great. But. It’s a fake. And now. The last 3 hours I am waiting for a emailed receipt that I was told I would get around noon. By far. The staff is the best part of this facility. But even they get tired of the BS .

Check in delayed by an hour due to malfunction with door lock. Toilet overflowed in the room above me leaked into my room. Dripping water woke me up at 4AM. Had to relocate rooms in the middle of the night.

This hotel was a bait and switch from the moment I worked in. The entire first floor of the hotel is abandoned. The bar looks like it was once nice but is now completely emptied out and abandoned. There was no front desk staff. (You have to walk up the street to the International House to check in, check out, and get assistance.) I didn't see a single person in the hotel the entire time I was there aside from a maid one time. If I walked into the hotel after it was dark, it was creepy, to say the least. I did not feel safe feeling like there was nobody in the hotel to assist me if something were to happen. I stayed in the Penthouse of this hotel, and let me tell you, it did NOT look like the photos. There was about half of the furniture and art in the photos, and it was absolutely filthy. The bath was full of standing water. There were old, dried dripping stains on the walls and in the closet and shelves. There were poppy seeds on the couch and food on the table when I arrived. The floor was filthy. Overall, one of the most filthy places I've had the displeasure of staying at.

Cute stay. Super quiet. I used my room as a photo studio and it was perfect. Not much amenities but if you’re use to airbnb style places you won’t mind. Quaint bar across the street make up for the bar in the lobby not being open. If you want to feel like that last person on earth for a week or so. This hotel is perfect.

Room was average, location was great, needs a lot of updates, and was over priced for the amount of complications we encountered. No hotel staff at the loft property, and no amenities on the actual property. Everything is at the sister properties a block away. No parking and we had to use the valet for our stay.
