Ludlow Hotel

This hotel has been hand-picked by the StayBoutique team and verified as an authentic boutique hotel




180 Ludlow St, New York, NY 10002

The 175-room, 20-story Ludlow is one of the latest arrivals to downtown Manhattan’s well-established chic hotel scene. The hoteliers Ira Drukier, Richard Born and Sean MacPherson, who own several other boutique hotels in New York City together, such as the Jane and the Bowery, bought the abandoned red-brick building from a real-estate developer and spent two years fashioning it into luxury accommodations with a contemporary design. The Ludlow, opened in June 2014, includes the hard-to-book restaurant Dirty French, which is from the same team as Carbone and Parm. The property also has a lovely garden with six tables and brick walls partly covered in ivy, as well as heating, allowing it to remain open year-round.
