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...

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...

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....

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...

Currently staying in 4A, which is billed as a deluxe king suite. Nothing deluxe or suite about it: a cement cube with a bed and a desk. Huge hole in the carpet outside, sink that doesn't drain, gross mini fridge, cabinet holding the t.v. is scraped up an cords just hang everywhere (an iHome that only connects to iphone 4...

Huge rooms, interesting art, great service... can't say enough about this location. We loved it. Amazing value too! It was one of the best parts of our trip. We had stayed at the Waldorf for the first couple nights... Loft far exceed the "5 star" hotel.

Rooms were nice & large. We were on a corner room & it was a bit noisy with a street/ally being right outside the sound echoed. Front desk was mostly okay & were helpful. You can go around the corner to IH for coffee (they don't offer in Loft). Location is good for French Quarter. Rooms were clean. We stayed...

This is a very nice, and unique, place to stay in New Orleans. It is very quiet, yet only a short walk from the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter. It is very modern, stylish and yet minimalist having been converted from a warehouse for carriages. The room we stayed in was huge with a comfortable bed, and with...

My partner and I love this hotel. The decor is gorgeous and the rooms are very spacious! My partner got very sick on the day of our check out and they extended our checkout time with no problems. We stayed for three nights and did not notice any noise from the bar. The rooms are huge and the bath tub...

We really did enjoy our stay here. The room is very spacious and I loved the decor. Super comfy bed and a huge bathroom with a bath and shower and Aveda products which was a great touch. A couple of things which could be improved though - our loo didn't flush well at all, Internet very patchy and weak shower....

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.
