The 175-room, 20-story Ludlow Hotel in New York City is the latest addition to the booming downtown Manhattan hotel scene. Behind hoteliers Sean MacPherson, Ira Drukier, and Richard Born, The Ludlow is within walking distance from all of downtown NYC’s desirable locales: Katz’s Deli, Bowery Ballroom, Washington Square Park, Russ & Daughter’s, and the New Museum. The boho chic hotel opened in early summer of 2014 and boasts ample red brick throughout. Its lobby features oversized chandeliers, a garden, limestone gas fireplace, vintage fixtures, and imported Moroccan rugs.
More than 10 room options makeup the backbone of the hotel, ranging from Studio Full to Penthouse Suite. Dark wood flooring, silky, handmade textiles, exposed wood beams, over-round brass chandeliers, and modern marble tiling give The Ludlow’s guest rooms a refreshing new view on mixed-modern design. The Ludlow is also home to Dirty French, which is owned by the same team behind the hard-to-book Parm, as well as Carbone. Fare is exactly what the lame implies: classic French dishes brought to life with bold flavors and modern techniques. The Lobby Lounge and Garden also serves as an all-day and late-night bar.
