Fodor's Expert Review Loft 523

523 Gravier St., New Orleans, Louisiana, 70130, USA

A good option for chic, loft-style digs, it is so subtle from the outside that you may have trouble finding it among the surrounding buildings. Once inside, the atmosphere is sleek and seductive—Frank Lloyd Wright mixed with SoHo loft. Frette linens, Fortuny lamps, DVD surround-sound systems, and cavernous limestone bathrooms with Aveda amenities and stone vanity tables make this an adult playground. A personal assistant is assigned to you at check-in for your entire stay.
