4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We loved our stay at Thw Ludlow We stayed in a Skybox for three nights in September. The rooms are a delight. Very quirky and stylish with amazing views. We utilised the space under the bed for storage as we were travelling for two weeks! The Ludlow is a beautiful place to hang out. We enjoyed drinks by a roaring fire in the lounge which is comfortable and atmospheric. Service was great, friendly and accommodating. After checkout we spent the rest of Sunday morning having brunch in Dirty French before catching our flight home. We enjoyed exploring LES and it was a great base for our trip We'd be back in a heartbeat.......or a New York minute

Having previously lived in NY and a lot of friends with spare rooms I had never stayed in a hotel in NYC so expectation and excitement was high. After a slightly disappointing start with the size of the room, or actually the size of the bed in relation to the room we were moved and everything was great. The location is very cool, especially for exploring the independent shops on the Lower East Side and East Village. The bar and garden room are lovely during the day but extremely busy at night and it's difficult to get anywhere to sit.

I love this place.... i love the small boutique feel... the folks at the front desk... the room.. and THE TERRACE!!!!! I did not care that i could see my breath and it was 40 degrees outside... i sat out there for an hour... just being. I am sure the other rooms are nice... but the terrace makes it all worth while. I had an odd request for 4 more pillow (on top of the awesome pillows that were already there...) no one batted an eye... and sent them out... (i suppose that is better than asking for hookers and blow... but it is 2019 and not 1986) so.. this request was very reasonable in that respect. Really... it is on the lower east side... and getting down there is a bit of a pain in the ass.... but i am already checking to see if this room is available when i am back in ny in April!

With a long weekend in December free, we decided to make a long overdue trip to NYC. After doing some research, the lower east side seemed like a good neighbourhood for us - walkable to lots of cool areas (we saw some great comedy in Greenwich Village, drank at some amazing bars, and had some incredible meals), transit options for getting to Broadway where we had tickets to a show, and less hectic and cooler-looking than midtown. The Ludlow was a PERFECT choice for us. It had beautiful furnishings, lovely amenities, nespresso coffee in room, a very comfortable bed with beautiful linens, a luxe and hip vibe with friendly, helpful, staff. The rooftop view was stunning (though it was too cold for us to linger), and the cocktails in the lounge were impeccable, with a fun, buzzy atmosphere. We would go back in a heartbeat. It was an absolutely amazing getaway! 🥰

After extensive research chose the Ludlow and it was totally the right choice.Great location for exploring LES. Vibrant and lovely common areas and had a great room layout for giving MOM some privacy and having a living space as well. The Ludlow double was perfect and a great value. Great pleasant staff in all areas! Minor tweaks for room lighting (although their bathroom lighting is excellent)and location of art vs. mirror in sitting area for function would put them over the top!

Stayed here for the week for my husbands 40 th birthday . We stayed in a larger double room but it was still quite small , though had everything we needed . Great shower . The bar and lounge areas are very comfortable and were lively at the weekend . Great breakfast in Dirty martinis which is the bar in the hotel . Location in Lower East Side was perfect for exploring New York , we walked everywhere.

I stayed at The Ludlow this past Valentine’s Day, as a special surprise staycation treat for my girlfriend. Prior to arriving, I contacted the hotel and the manager Ken was readily and available to assist with all my tedious request and set me up for such a wonderful and special stay. He even reached out to me after my stay to make sure everything went as planned. Before even arriving that afternoon, I received a text that my room was ready. I hadn’t even registered as yet, and was being told my room was ready. Eric! I arrived later that afternoon and Lawrence, the lobby ambassador, with a great smile and personality greeted me at curbside and accommodated me with a space right in front of the hotel to unload and leave my car while I settled in. I checked in and my journey with Lawrence continued, he took me up to the beautiful Loft Queen Deluxe, which was to die for and showed me around!! I set up my room to complete the last leg of my big surprise and asked Lawrence to assist me, which he happily did, by recognizing my girlfriend, after briefly showing him a photo, and having him hand off a card key to her when she arrived. IT WAS PERFECT! I later went to the lobby bar and met the beautiful host, Deandra, who got us our cocktails and even sat with us and had a nice conversation with us while we enjoyed the space. It just felt like home. If I could afford to be there each week, I would. I've already recommended the property to so many of my friends and colleagues and I can't wait to be back to this Gem!

This is the 4th time I've stayed at this hotel, and I just love coming back. It's just fabulous every where you look. It's dark and moody, dramatic and sexy. The rooms vary in sizes greatly, so try and go for a larger suite if you can. But either way, you'll love coming home to this gorgeous space. The hallways are like something out of a story book, and the lobby bar is perfect for evening drinks. There's always a real buzz in the downstairs area, it's so lively and the restaurant, 'Dirty French' is almost always a full house. The bathrooms are so gorgeous, I've used them multiple times for shoots for my brand. Try and get one with a tub and a window if you can. I love staying here and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a luxurious stay in NYC. And the door staff are always so friendly with a smile and a helping hand.

We loved the Ludlow. If you want to be in this part of town it’s a great destination. The rooms are nice and clean, and the place is pretty happening. The bar, lounge, restaurant and sitting areas are all very nice. As with most NYC hotels, the rooms are a bit cozy, so we stayed in a small suite, which was great. I’d also recommend not staying on a higher floor as I heard people who did complain about the elevator wait. A really nice break from, and completely different vibe from, our usual midtown experience. Well recommended.

I spent three nights here in January in a sky box loft on the 18th floor. View was pretty good looking further downtown & west. The room had a small lounge area which definitely made the room feel spacious and had a couple of small closets to hang clothes etc. I found the room to be a little too dark, even with all the lights on and on the 18th floor - I get the look they are going for but personally would like options. The bathroom was awesome, very light and bright with a large walk in shower, big bath and plenty of space on the vanity to spread toiletries out on. I loved the big window in there, but might not be for everyone. there was a curtain to close if you want more privacy. Check in was quick and easy, but in general I found the staff to be a little blasé. I didn't eat at the restaurant but did have drinks in the bar area and enjoyed the open fire. Top spot if you want to be downtown with loads of great restaurants, bars and coffee close by.
