The Redbury – New York City is a comfortable and welcoming pick for families looking to explore Manhattan from a convenient Midtown base. Located in the burgeoning NoMad district, it’s easy to set out from here to see sights like the Empire State Building and Madison Square Park or catch a show in the Theatre District.
The hotel has 259 rooms that range from small quarters with two twin beds to deluxe kings and two-bedroom suites, but manages to feel more intimate.
There’s a daily resort fee that includes things like unlimited local and toll-free calls from the room, Wi-Fi throughout the property, and daily passes to a nearby fitness center. And while there are endless restaurants in every direction out the door, you’ll appreciate the onsite pizzeria when all you crave after a long day touring is a go-to onsite dinner.
Note: When booking, be sure not to confuse this property with its sister property in Miami.

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!
