The Ludlow Hotel is the Lower East Side’s hip new living room with a singular, loft-like feel and welcoming vibrant public spaces. With 175 guestrooms including 21 spectacular suites in nine configurations, spaces will range from Full to Queen and King rooms, each with sweeping city views and many with a private terrace. The Williamsburg Bridge is a quick walk from the Ludlow. Legendary smoked-fish emporium Russ & Daughters and knish haven Yonah Schimmel are steps away. East-facing rooms also offer views of Tibor Kalman’s famous “Askew” clock and the iconic “Lenin” statue outside Red Square, the striking modern apartment building around the corner on Avenue B.
Established in 2014.
The Ludlow Hotel, within wafting distance of Katz’s Deli on the corner, pays elegant tribute to the idiosyncratic history of its storied neighborhood, a landing point for Jewish immigrants before becoming the home of rock music and art in the 1980s. Elegant and comfortable, but with artful rough edges and personal quirks, the hotel conjures the area’s vivid history, from the “Gangs of New York” era to Jewish immigration to the wild art and music of the ’80s. The Ludlow comes with its own New York story. Sean MacPherson, Ira Drukier, and Richard Born rescued a derelict building that had been abandoned by its original developers after the financial crash. The Ludlow’s solid brick façade and factory casement windows make it fit seamlessly onto its historic block. Like the neighborhood itself, with its long heritage of welcoming newcomers, the Ludlow will make guests feel they belong here.
