“Hippest hotel in New Orleans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

My partner and I stayed at Loft 523 two weeks ago. We loved it. Not only is it cool but it is in a great location. Just a block from Canal and the French Quarter but QUIET so you can get some rest after all the fun.

The hotel is really a loft space. I've lived in lofts before and wish mine were as nice. It is VERY CLEAN and WELL MAINTAINED. The loft was HUGE as well at 600 square feet. The bathroom was spotless, large and the double shower was perfect. You won't find in any other room in NOLA that large without paying suite prices. Speaking of price...it's a bargain for what you get.

The staff was very helpful and accomodating as we had weird arrival and departure hours. They made several restaurant recommendations including Jon Besh's Luke which is two blocks away as well as Felix's for the best oysters in town (three blocks away).

We have found our new favorite place to stay in New Orleans and we will be back.

We really enjoyed the hotel. It is a very quiet and quaint hotel with easy access to all the hot areas in New Orleans and the river. It is also really close to the trolley.

If you're looking for a low key, modern, boutique hotel in a great location, this is the spot. Just read the other reviews. The good ones are true.

I have been going to New Orleans for many years being a graduate from Tulane University. Through Tablet I got a great rate and with the pictures I decided it would be fun to try when bringing down my girlfriend. All I can say is that I thought this hotel was amazing. It has truly unique decor with terrific contemporary interiors and huge loft style rooms that are true to the name. Being 2 blocks from Canal street its a great location to stay to access the French Quarter, uptown, warehouse district and everything in between. I will definitely make this hotel my go to from now on when visiting.

After many trips to NOLA, I finally found this gem of a hotel. Not sure how many rooms but guessing 16-24, location is perfect, quiet neighborhood with walking access to the best of the city. Decor is modern, infrastructure is new, service is discreet, beds are comfortable. Will be back in a few weeks.

Perfect location for celebrating our Anniversary - right between the French Quarter and the artsy Warehouse District. Loved the large rooms with high ceilings and modern furnishings + white linens and down pillows on the bed. The bathroom is also very spacious and has a lovely Italian soaking tub. My only complaint is with the dim lighting in the bathroom (obviously designed by a man)...I could barely get my makeup on! The gals working the front desk were very helpful and knowledgeable, especially Stephanie, who is a fount of information on every aspect of New Orleans, particularly the restaurant scene. All in all, a great experience...we'll definitely be back.
