Stay Here: The Maritime Hotel

I'll be back in New York next week and I'm really excited about the hotel I'll be staying at: The Ludlow. The Ludlow hotel, situated in the Lower East Side, is another project by hotelier and designer Sean Macpherson. I've stayed at two of his other hotels and as far as I'm concerned, there is no greater experience you can get from a boutique hotel in NYC. You can read about my stay at The Marlton hotel last year here, and it occurred to me that I never shared my pics from my stay at The Maritime when I was there earlier this year, which is what I would like to share with you now. 

As the name of the hotel suggests, there is a maritime theme about this hotel. The rooms are designed to look like cabins on a ship, complete with portholes for windows (albeit, and thankfully, oversized portholes). 

The bathrooms were decked out in marble countertops, a common feature in Macpherson hotel rooms, complete with luxury toiletries.  

My favourite area of the hotel was the bar/lounge area (the Cabana). There was a cozy "indoor" area that made you feel like you were on a steam ship, and a heated "outdoor" area that mimicked a garden patio. I spent a couple of nights sitting out here with my laptop finishing up posts for my most recent One Room Challenge. The complimentary wine and cheese was a nice bonus! 

There isn't a single area of this hotel where the decorating decisions were overlooked, as evidenced by the workout room. Helloooo Martinique Wallpaper à la the Beverley Hills Hotel. I was almost inspired to workout. (I said almost.) 

This was my first time staying in Chelsea so I walked the entire length of the High Line. It was April so not a whole lot was in bloom but it was still incredible. 

Another benefit of The Maritime hotel? IT'S RIGHT ACROSS FROM THE CHELSEA MARKET. Omigod have you ever been to the Chelsea Market? It is one of the greatest indoor food halls in the world, featuring a plethora of mouthwatering dishes across many different food categories and cultures. 

I'm so excited to stay at my third Sean Macpherson hotel next week and to explore a neighbourhood I haven't visited yet!
