My wife and I stumbled onto Loft 523 through an internet search. While in New Orleans staying at another hotel, we went by to have a look. The hard part is finding the hotel even though it is very conveniently located just off Canal Street and easy walking distance to the French Quarter. The entrance is a nondescript door in... More

Loft 523 is, as all of the other reviews suggest, a high concept, design-driven space. There are thousands of details that gave the entire hotel a modern elegance: the tin-stamped roofing sheets in the elevator, the hammered copper doors to the rooms, the lighting design within the rooms themselves. If you are a fan of contemporary design, this is your... More

Loft 523 is the sister Hotel to the International house. As the name implies the rooms have the feel of a stylish loft. The staff, as at the International House, seem to really want to be helpful and friendly - and they are! The rooms vary from good to very very good - with modern tubs, stonework and furnishings designed... More

Stayed for 3 nights for the Superbowl. Was in 3E. Room was great, staff was as well. No noise issues in the room, lobby and elevator were noisy though. I can see how people on the second floor, or even the third floor right over the club, would have noise issues though, so be sure to call in advance to... More

I'll definitely stay here again. We reserved room for $159 and asked for the 4th floor to avoid the noise and were upgraded to a very large room with one of the tubs. The place is like having your own condo in the Central Business District. We only saw 2 or 3 other couples the whole time we were there.... More

If you love good design, you'll love this hotel. Great location in the warehouse/arts district. A great benefit is that you also have some privileges at their sister hotel across the street - iHotel. Staff could not have been more helpful. I can't wait for my next visit! Marcy Hart Dallas, TX

I treated my Fiance to a night in the city for his birthday. I chose Loft 523 for the very contemporary style. I absolutley loved the hotel! Very clean, very roomy. Service was excellent and the bar down stairs was exactly what we were looking for. Club music without being in a smoke filled dance club. I plan on staying... More

This hotel is located on a narrow downtown street next to other hotels but you would never know it! This is a one of a kind experience.... probably not for everyone however if you are looking for a hotel that is chic, modern & close to everything you want to see and do in New Orleans then this is for...

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.
