The Redbury New York

- Ordering room service pizza from Marta, the top-notch restaurant from Danny Meyer
- It does well on the accessibility front, including wheelchair access to the entire hotel
What To Know
- There’s no gym, but passes to New York Sports Club gyms are provided
- Rooms are on the small side, though that’s par for the course in NYC
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
The Redbury’s undergone major renovations in the past couple of years and is now fresh as a daisy, drawing families, couples, and independent travelers to its super-convenient NoMad location. The rooms are compact but up-to-date, with an energizing palette of black, white, and red, and the lobby has a mid-century vibe with plenty of seating. Stop in for a spritz at the Rome-inspired Vini e Fritti bar, which does Italian aperitivos and small plates; the hotel’s café, Marchio, also takes its cue from Italy with long countertops for throwing back your morning espresso before dashing out the door. Marta, a pizzeria from Danny Meyer’s hospitality group, is open all day and turns out charred, thin-crust pizzas from its wood-burning oven, along with beer-brined chicken and inventive antipasti.
In the Area
One of the biggest perks of staying in NoMad: you’re within close proximity to major NYC sights along with green space in Madison Square Park, just three blocks away. You can walk to the Empire State Building in under 10 minutes and the United Nations building in less than 30. The ultra-chic concept store Dover Street Market, just two blocks away, draws fashionistas to its provocative exhibits, collection of high-end designer clothing, and see-and-be-seen café. There’s the usual selection of chain restaurants nearby, but plenty of gems, too. Her Name is Han, a hip Korean restaurant with home cooking (and a generous banchan offering), is a five-minute walk away, as is L&W Oyster Co., a buzzy oyster bar with a great fixed-price lunch and more unexpected menu items like like garlic-cheese stuffed fried olives. The nearest subway stop is two blocks away for exploring further afield.
How to Get There
Reading other people's reviews i think it comes down to luck as for the staff that are on duty at the time of your stay, ours were poor, no info about the hotel and when we asked certain things it seemed like we were a nuisance!
Location wise The Redbury is in my view perfect but if we go back it will be a different hotel but in the same district.
Nice hotel. Recently remodeled: clean and comfy. Beds were comfy. Staff was very nice and helpful. The only issue we had was the room temperature. We could never get the room warmer than 68-70 degrees for some reason. Maintenance never came to check when called - but I think it was a limit they had set. Otherwise, great little hotel!
We stayed at the Redbury last weekend and was surprised at how spacious the rooms were. Very nice accommodations and bathroom products. When we arrived there was quite a line to check in but the front desk was very efficient and friendly as well as the gentleman that checked our bags . We were celebrating a big birthday and they brought us a bottle of champagne along with a very thoughtful hand written note! Two bottles are water are complimentary along with morning coffee. I really like the location and Blank Slate is a greatplace for breakfast or brunch . Marta is also a very good choice for lunch or dinner.
the hotel was great, staff is amazing and very helpful. rooms very clean, but that bed, ah that bed I actually slept late because of that bed. The in-house cafe serves some of the best coffee in the city and all done with a smile.
Great hotel to stay while in New York. It’s about 10 min walk to Times Square and close to subways. The hotel is cashless and only accepts cards, hence gratuity is included in all prices. The double rooms are very small especially when you are travelling with two large bags however the king rooms are great. Very clean and retro style.
