Luxury Hotel Spotlight: The Ludlow

The Ludlow New York City, opened this year on the very vibrant Lower East Side (L.E.S.) filled with trendy dining establishments and upscale boutiques.

The hotel features 184 guestrooms of which 20 are suites.

All rooms feature plush furnishings, hardwood floors, handmade silk rugs, artisan-crafted Moroccan Pendant lamps, and Indo-Portuguese style beds. The marble mosaic bathrooms feature brass rain showers, many of which also offer spectacular views from deep soaking tubs.  The high floor views from the oversized industrial windows offer a spectacular panorama of lower Manhattan, downtown skyscrapers, and New York’s most famous bridges.

Frances Yates, a Tour Supervisor for The Appointment Group, commented about the hotel. “I love the atmosphere of the hotel. So much thought has gone into the details, from the throws on the beds to the funky lampshades. There is a really pretty courtyard at the rear of the hotel and you can sit there and never know you were in a busy city like New York. Great hotel with a great vibe and recommended to all!” said Yates.

Lobby Lounge and Garden


The light-filled lobby, surrounded by oak paneled walls and marble mosaic floors, extends into a large lounge that features a grand-distressed limestone fireplace and a lobby bar. Tucked behind the lounge is an outdoor garden for daytime lingering and nighttime cocktails. All of the cocktails will be crafted by Major Food Group's chief bartender Thomas Waugh.

Room Features


Some of our TAG agents recently experienced the hotel for themselves. Travel Executive Patricia Carrazco noted, “The rooms are small but the design makes great use of the space so you really lack nothing. I liked my room the best because it had a balcony so you could open the door and get fresh air.”

In regards to service level in the property our staff had nothing but good things to say. Tour Specialist Corrie Salgado said, “The front office staff was extremely nice and helpful. I was originally assigned a room with a shower only and I wanted a tub so they switched me right away to a room with a tub (which had an amazing deep soaking tub).”


The Appointment Group’s Hotel Contract Executive for U.S. Jet Prudencio added, “The Ludlow is quite the gem and the place to be in the Lower East Side!!  You can tell a lot of thought was heavily invested in the careful selection of exquisite furnishings and overall interior design.  Strategically located, the neighbourhood is very vibrant, and the hotel’s restaurant Dirty French is packed each night. Having stayed here, it’s no surprise that The Ludlow quickly gained popularity amongst our clients. ”

Dirty French is a New York bistro created by Major Food Group’s Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi and Jeff Zalaznick. The restaurant takes its culinary cues from the timeless dishes and preparations of the classic French bistro and enlivens them utilizing modern techniques and bold flavors. Dishes like Duck à l’Orange with ras el hanout and preserved oranges and Bouillabaisse Noire with rouget, octopus and rouille remain true to their French roots but are restyled with flavors that explore the breadth and depth of the global French culinary influence. Dirty French is located in the Ludlow Hotel in Manhattan’s storied Lower East Side.

Simply put, Andora Santana from The Appointment Group New York office remarked “The Ludlow is Awwwwesome! ”
