“Best hotel in NOLA”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Checked in here at shot notice, exceptional hotel for New Orleans. Completely different to the standard french quarter hotel with its fake furniture/screaming (ex) frat boys/lifeless Jazz photographs/insert New Orleans cliche here....

Efficient yet discreet service, well designed rooms and a great location. A genuinely relaxing weekend. As you learn about a city, it feels nice to develop 'go to' places and and Loft 523 is my go to hotel from now on.

This is not only my favorite hotel in NOLA, but anywhere. I had a one week work trip stay during Tales of the Cocktail (which meant lots of deliveries, odd requests, etc.) and the staff was always incredibly helpful and accommodating. The rooms are a world apart from the bustle of the French Quarter and just close enough.

Good story: for a morning flight, I overslept and when I woke up, called the lobby in a panic. Jeremy, who was working the desk, called the airport to check the status of my flight (which turned out to be delayed) and called me a taxi. As I dashed out of my room still full of work boxes, he promised to take care of everything and send everything back to me at home. He even had my flight information printed out and a taxi waiting outside when I made it downstairs. My flight ended up being delayed and I actually made it. But the important part of the story is that none of that would have happened with out Jeremy! Thanks again!

Stayed at the Lofts for a birthday retreat. From check in to check out, the service was unbelievable. Concierge helped was with every request, last minute tickets to the House of Blues to multiple orders of room service. We stayed in the penthouse and it was absolutely amazing, huge balcony over the city, top of the line entertainment system, and the bathroom itself was to die for. Will definitely be staying here for my future trips, although probably not in comfort of the PH. All and all wonderful location, staff, and plenty to do and see.

It is very unfortunate that such a great hotel is so hard to find; the name on the building would have helped tremendously. Parking near the hotel was painless and cost efficient. Check in was quick and easy; I was even upgraded without having to ask!! My immediate reaction of the room was... Beautiful & Spacious. The bathroom was also pretty spacious. The tub was a little dirty, but with a quick wip off it was ready to use. The shower could have benefited from a door and lower shower heads (whoever installed the shower heads must have set them for seven foot tall people). But, overall the room was amazing! The windows and the iPhone were also a great touch!!

This is a real sleek property. It is contemporary, functional, and relaxing. We stayed for only one night, a quick trip into and out of NewOrleans and this was the perfect choice. The loft has only 17 rooms which make is more intimate. Easy access to the CBD and the French Quarter. The staff was very helpful and informed. We will return to this facility next trip. Thanks for a great stay.

If you are into hip, cool, ultra modern, Then the loft 523 is the place to be. From the minute We walked in the door we felt like great friends. From the friendly receptionist to informative bellman, Additionally, the room was spacious, nice and hip. Located on a quiet street just minutes from the French Quarter, everything you want to see is within walking distance, but at night you're able to escape the insanity. We are anxious for our next trip to New Orleans and look forward to another great stay at Loft 523.

Stayed for a conference nearby. It was an easy two-minute walk to the Sheraton and Marriott, where the conference (like many) was held. The very minimalist design will not appeal to Aunt Maude or others who think there should be at least three different wallpaper patterns in the room, but it suited me wonderfully, with very comfortable furniture and a far more spacious room than my colleagues who refused to leave the conference hotels. The staff was quite helpful across the board, none more so than Stephanie at the front desk who was always ready with suggestions for places beyond Bourbon Street.

Downsides: The rooms facing the street can get noisy at night, so if you really have to get your sleep or you're a get-off-my-lawn-you-pesky-kids type you should at least ask for a different room. Probably one in a different city. Also, if you are looking for amenities, have your handy manservant drive you around the corner to something more corporate. And there is no bar, but if you can't find one in NOLA, you should probably just stick to the tour bus.
