Sneak Peek: Checking out The Ludlow on the Lower East Side

1431 Ludlow HotelThe NYC hotel opening I’m most anticipating is the Ludlow Hotel on the Lower East Side  in June. I interviewed owner/designer/hotelier Sean McPherson yesterday for a magazine assignment and got a sneak peek of the still in-construction hotel. His projects, like The Marlton, The Jane, and the Bowery hotel all manage to be reflective of the neighborhood they are in and incredibly cool (without feeling like they’re trying too hard). The rooms at The Ludlow have a laid-back vibe, boasting vintage and global elements like Moroccan pendant lamps, Indo-Portuguese style beds. and tree-trunk petrified wood nightstands from Organic Modernism in Brooklyn. Below are a few pics from the Ludlow and some of my pictures of the views. The rooms are seriously bathed in light (which you rarely see in NYC hotels). Many have incredible, sweeping downtown views. Can’t wait to check it out again when the hotel is complete.

The bathrooms feel like quintessential NYC bathrooms. The floors with gray and black mosaic tiles and gray grout are chic but totally practical too as they will stand up to serious use without showing it.

Amazing downtown views from every angle. The hotel is one of the few high rises in the neighborhood so you have views and amazing light in almost every room.
