The Redbury New York

- 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
Stayed for 3 days on a quick hop into town for work.
The restaurant,Marta,was consistent and delicious throughout the stay.
Housekeeping was friendly on every engagement and kept my room clean throughout.
The bellmen and front desk were. bit standoffish and waited until you approached for any sort of greeting.
The carpets throughout the hotel rooms and floors need to be replaced.
The rooms are okay, clean, but could use a redesign.
no gym. They do give you passes to a NY sports club. That gym is in terrible shape with no ac, but if you need a workout had plenty of equipment.
Locale is central to many things on the east side, near Empire State Building and multiple subway lines.
Also learned they are no longer associated with the sbe brand.
Overall - decent hotel, nothing great, nothing terrible
We stayed at the Redbury hotel and found it too be a clean and comfortable hotel with a few added extras.
After paying the resort fee we were told we would be able to get free coffee from the onsite coffee shop in the morning.
The two entrances were also handy after a long days site seeing.
Would stay again
Ideal spot, easy to walk pretty much everywhere from here, subway station just around the corner.
Rooms are lovely, clean but not really large.
Staff were very helpful.
There's no reason why you wouldn't stay here.
I've stayed here so many times. I have a special spot for this hotel as they found space for my colleague and I several years ago after the Hilton botched our booking and left us without a place to sleep at 3am after a hugely delayed flight from Atlanta. Room rates can vary quite a lot, but I really love this hotel for its staff, location and atmosphere. Always my Manhattan hotel of choice if I can get a room at a good rate.
Nice hotel, rooms were small but clean and the bathroom was good, view onto other building windows was a bit rubbish. Location OK, but a bit far away from Times Square and all the action. We never used it but the restaurant was always busy.
