The Redbury New York
This former women’s-only hotel now serves hipsters of all genders in the lively NoMad district.
This historic landmark dates back to 1903, when it served as a residential hotel strictly for women. An extensive renovation brought the 265 guest rooms into the 21st century; not only are they co-ed, they boast sleek décor that recalls a time when the building resided in what was known as Tin Pan Alley. All accommodations come with iPod docking stations, slate-tiled bathrooms and Ciel bath products. A daily service fee (mandatory) gets you Wi-Fi, digital New York Times, access to the fitness center and a bit more. Guests can feast on Roman-style pizza and seasonal entrées at the upscale Marta restaurant from Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group. A NoMad address that borders the edge of Midtown positions The Redbury convenient to primo destinations like the Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden, Chelsea and Grand Central Station.
