Far from being a mere reflection of its surroundings, the Penthouse invites the city in, thanks to the floor-to-ceiling warehouse casement windows and a spectacular private terrace. Perfectly placed for stylish sundowners, the 1,000-sq ft furnished terrace runs the length of the suite, with views over Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge.
Designed to maximize social space, the Penthouse incorporates a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room, sitting area and an entertainment center complete with vintage vinyls and record player. The large bedroom features a king size bed dressed in Bellino Fine Linens, while the master bathroom, one of two in the suite, boasts a rainfall shower, windowed soaking tub and luxe accessories by Parisian fashion house Maison Martin Margiela.
The brainchild of New York hoteliers Sean MacPherson, Ira Drukier, and Richard Born, The Ludlow Hotel is located in the heart of the Lower East Side, fast emerging as one of New York’s most fashionable neighborhoods. Designed by MacPherson to provide a ‘living room’ for local and visiting creatives, the ground floor guest areas are welcoming and vibrant, with oak-paneled walls, marble mosaic flooring and a grand, distressed limestone fireplace setting the scene. The 184 rooms and suites have a lofty industrial vibe with big casement windows, and lavish bathrooms. The hotel’s Lower East Side hotspot, Dirty French, serves classic Gallic cuisine with a firm New York sensibility.
