Located in the Lower East Side, The Ludlow Hotel allows you to experience the city like a true New Yorker. The Ludlow Hotel launched in the end of 2014 and in no time was considered “ the place to stay” in town! It’s surely one of New York’s hippest destinations. The love child of New York hoteliers Sean MacPherson, Ira Drukier, and Richard Born, the hotel also evokes the neighborhood’s rich history—from the “Gangs of New York” era to Jewish immigration to the wild art and music scenes. The stunning result is seen as soon as you walk through the steel and glass doors of the lobby into a lounge with oak-paneled walls, antique chandeliers, and Parisian- and New Orleans-inspired craft cocktails. The 175 rooms have a lofty industrial vibe with big casement windows—many affording impressive views of the New York skyline—furry throws on chairs, and lavish bathrooms. And the hotel’s eagerly awaited restaurant, Dirty French by Major Food Group, serves Gallic classics with a New York sensibility.
A glorious distressed limestone fireplace dominates the lobby lounge. Marble mosaic floors, an eclectic mix of vintage furniture and handpicked finds, and striking art gives the area a private and personal feel, like a New Yorker’s downtown living space.
Rooms feature oversized windows, plush furnishings with Indo-Portuguese style beds, artisan-crafted Moroccan pendant lamps, dark-stained hardwood floors with handmade silk rugs, and white ceilings with exposed wooden beams.
All bathrooms boast black-and-white tile work, marble mosaic floors, and brass fixtures, rainshower heads, while many feature soaking tubs with great views. Plush bathrobes and “Persian rug” trompe-l’oeil bathmats have been specially commissioned from Maison Martin Margiela.
The lobby garden is flooded with plenty of natural light. Exotic hanging fixtures soften the industrial vibe of the building here. The Terrace suites come with a sizeable outdoor space where one can enjoy breakfast and city views.
