The Ludlow Hotel: The Epitome of Downtown NYC Style

Whether it’s the low-lit lounge areas with plush sofas you could spend all day in, or the oversized fireplace you wish you could pluck out of the wall and take home with you, The Ludlow Hotel is your oasis to sleep, sit, relax or have a drink, away from the hustle of downtown New York.

Gritty and modern, this hotel has been featured in Vogue, The New York Times, British GQ and Condé Nast Traveller, each offering rave reviews. We had high expectations – and we weren’t disappointed!

Warehouse style windows in every room, recycled wood beams, communal courtyards, and all the amenities you hope for, make you feel as though you’re staying in a well-loved apartment rather than a hotel.

But, you may want to leave him behind when you try to score a table at Dirty French, the hotel’s über popular restaurant and bar. Open from breakfast to dinner, the bistro only takes reservations a month in advance, and features French inspired dishes like Duck à l’Orange and Trout Amandine. After dinner, stay a while, sit back and take it all in with one of their signature cocktails.
