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
10 of my girlfriends and I came to New York for a 30th birthday party and we stayed at the Redbury. We cannot say enough about this hotel. From the great location, comfortable rooms, trendy lobby, the amazing staff, great happy hour as well as the complimentary coffee in the morning! We loved every minute of our stay and thank the Redbury staff for being so accommodating and wonderful! We will all be back and will always recommend this hotel to friends and family!!
Stayed here for a couple of nights on a business trip.
Let's start with the negatives. The large central AC units which regulate the temperature of all the rooms could be heard constantly; you never got silence in the rooms, but instead a constant hum coming from the machines. This was by far the worst of all things, given that the very least you'd expect out of a hotel room is some silence. Secondly, the breakfast was very poor; so much in fact that we had to eat breakfast outside the hotel every day. From a 4 star hotel in NYC, you'd expect a lot better. In addition, the windows in the room were broken and you couldn't open to let some fresh air in the room. There were issues even with the cleaning service - the cleaners wouldn't replace small shampoo and showel gel bottles when they came to clean the rooms.
The positives were that the rooms were medium - large sized. And that the staff were friendly and supportive wherever they could be, when something was asked of them. Nevertheless, unfortunately due to the negative aspects, I wouldn't come back to stay here again.
Hope this helps!
I travel to NYC from the Deep South semi-frequently on business. I'm very very happy that the company books me into the Redbury. A beautiful, historic old building with wonderful rooms and public areas. Pizza at the Marta restaurant is among the best I've ever had (it's great to walk into the lobby and get the wood-fire smell) and the offerings at the Italian cafe are first rate. best of all, everything is VERY reasonably priced for the New York City. I particularly want to mention Daniela at reception, who went above and beyond to accommodate us when in town for the marathon. All and all a really great stay with comfortable, quiet beds, great staff and good location.
