The vibrant Redbury New York packs a punch with a stately, high-ceilinged reception area draped in velvet curtains, a bold design aesthetic inspired by Tin Pan Alley—a nickname given to a nearby stretch known as the home of song publishing in NYC—265 newly-renovated rooms, and the continued excellence of its Roman-inspired pizzeria, Marta. In fact, when you enter the hotel, you’ll have a hard time walking past Marta without popping in for a glass from its extensive wine menu, a Spritz (Prosecco, Contratto Aperitif, Carpano Bianco and club soda, $14) or decadent treats like the ricotta e pere (oven-roasted balsamic pears with ricotta and hunks of sourdough bread, $17). The restaurant and bar offer a lively ambiance for folks seeking a craft cocktail or a mouthwatering three-course meal.
Redbury’s quirky décor and welcoming amenities (plush bedding, Wi-Fi access, cute faux phonograph bedside speakers, armoire and drawers, mini fridge, a 24-hour fitness center, excellent water pressure, Ciel bath products…and the softest hotel bathrobe ever) are only made cooler by the preservation of some of the building’s antique accents (such as original doors from its days as Women’s Hotel/Martha Washington Hotel).
Redbury is an excellent spot for those new to the city or anyone looking for a conveniently-located staycation. You’ll be a short trip from area favorites like The PIT and the Gramercy Theatre, plus the hotel is only a seven-minute walk to the Empire State Building (we checked).
Looking for a morning caffeine boost? While coffee makers aren’t offered in-room, hotel staff maintain a morning coffee station with to-go cups near the elevator banks. It’s good coffee too, with all the fixings.
TIME OUT TIP:
In warmer temps, beer lovers should head to nearby Tavern 29’s picturesque rooftop beer garden for a refreshing pint or growler (or, you know, a flight of bourbon…your call).
