Plywood is gone from 180 Ludlow Street, revealing the full sweep of the entrance to the Ludlow Hotel (aka The Ludlow). As you might imagine, its vibe is quite similar to the Bowery Hotel, which is also by BD Hotels and Sean MacPherson.

Prospective guests can begin staying at the Ludlow Hotel as of June 1, deemed the soft opening date. However, we are told that none of the “public spaces” are functional just yet.

The Ludlow Hotel website has been accepting room reservations from this date onward, and they’re offering a soft opening rate of $165 per night for the basic “studio full” room. Here is a snapshot of pricing based on a one-night stay.

In addition, we are told that the Torrisi ventureDirty French – will begin serving sometime in July. No word just yet on actual date, though.

The Ludlow is one of a half-dozen Hell Square Hotels that’s been under construction for the better part of a decade.
