“Not Yet Completed However Excellent Start”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

If you are a "no fuss" traveler looking to stay in a dynamic NYC neighborhood in a fantastic room for a great price- The Ludlow is an ideal choice! I stayed at the hotel knowing that it was under construction so my expectations weren't high however with such a lovely room product I was really pleasantly surprised. The construction taking place downstairs should not affect your stay- rooms are quiet. Front desk staff are warm and eager to help. Once complete (late July) The Ludlow will certainly be a phenomenal addition to the NY hotel scene. Come with low expectations and you'll surely be impressed. Thanks for a great stay.

I booked the Ludlow Hotel four days after they opened I believe that was June 1. That meant no reviews (YIKES). My daughter and I arrived after a long flight and we were exhausted. The cab driver dropped us off at the Ludlow Apartments which are located next to the hotel. We finally arrived and upon walking into the doors of the Ludlow Hotel my first impression was simple and very modern. The lobby was still under construction but very well masked (the construction that is). The young ladies at the counter were very pleasant and full of information. The lobby was so quiet that it seemed we were the only guest. We got our keys and headed up to our room on the 9th floor. The room upon entry was beautiful. Wooden floors very hip decor, flat screen tv, safe, and a mini bar with snacks. The bathroom is awesome LOVE the shower.

The address is 180 Ludlow Street, for some reason it has the Ludlow Apartment address which is next door.

We arrived at night the neighborhood was busy. The hotel is across the street from Katz's Deli. As a parent you want to be in the safest and cleanest place.

After dropping our bags off in the room, we took a quick walk to find something to eat in the neighborhood. After the walk in the neighborhood and finding the "Sweet Chick" (they have excellent chicken and waffles) next door to the hotel my uneasiness settled. Many folks out walking dogs, a few bistros with patrons sitting on the patio, clothing stores and a gelato place around the corner that had a line of customers until 10pm. It appears the entire street is under construction with a new hotel being built across the street.

So this is our first night and so far great!!!! They offer free wifi and complimentary breakfast which we will try in the morning.

We have stayed in the Times Square area many times, if you are looking for something different and away from the busy street and noise of Time Square, I would recommend giving the Ludlow Hotel a try.

Update I went to sleep before posting my review, I woke up and it is absolutely quiet in the area.

Room Tip: Small suitcase are the key, we are in a Studio Queen and it is just perfect with our luggage.

Dear tracylynn47

Thank you so much for trying The Ludlow in its early stages. So happy to hear that you enjoyed the quietness of the room and also the vibrant Lower East Side. We just love being part of this neighborhood.
We look forward to see you on a next trip to NYC
