I'm going to start with the policy, so when you book there are three choices of rooms, superior deluxe, deluxe and we will rock you, which means you are above the club and it is loud, I booked months in advance and got a better rate than most people in the hotel and booked the deluxe room which is the...

We are a couple in our early 60s, and chose this hotel based on a recommendation from a friend of a friend. We had a spacious, modern room, purposefully booked on the fourth floor, knowing that the club off the lobby would probably disturb us a little bit. When the party overflowed onto the street that night, and the music...

My boyfriend and I live in New Orleans and we've been hearing so many good things about this unique hotel, so we decided to stay a night, just for fun. We discovered a modern and hip marvel in a nostalgic city, a true gem in the heart of New Orleans. Its refreshing to see a hotel in this city that...

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at loft 523 for my 30th birthday, on March 14! We booked the "Loft Will Rock Your Suite" room right above the bar for one night. We were expecting to hear loud music and the crowd of people, but we weren't bothered by any noise coming from the bar. We could however hear people on...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on Thursday & Friday. We were supposed to stay there for Saturday night as well, but you'll soon find out why we bailed. We booked this hotel after reading all of the positive reviews on TripAdvisor. I pre-paid on neworleansonline.com because I received a better rate than booking straight...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.
