Tucked away in the sizzling NoMad neighborhood stands a stately hotel formerly known as The Martha Washington — a historic property that once served as a women-only sanctuary for boss babes of a bygone era (think Veronica Lake and Louise Brooks). Today, in a revamped version of its former self, the hotel is known as The Redbury, and THE STAYCATIONERS called it home for a night.
THE SPOT: The Redbury Hotel | 29 E. 29th Street, New York, NY
THE STATS: 256 guest rooms, iPrefer guest loyalty program, visually stimulating walls dripping in music history, Roman-Italian cibo aplenty at MARTA
When in Marta, do as the Romans do. And because no staycationer can check in on an empty stomach, the crew (joined by the one and only Georgia Grace) sat down for a veritable weekend feast of pizza, wood-fired grill specialties, and spritzes, basking in the natural light-filled glamour that veils the space.
There’s nothing like a midsummer slumber soirée with freshly cut flowers and cups that runneth over with Castello del Poggio Prosecco…THE STAYCATIONERS draped themselves in lace robes and whimsical jewels courtesy of a curated experience from UNBOUND, serving pseudo-boudoir vibes with a feminist twist. Now that’s a cause we can get on top of (er, behind).
As if their evening in NoMad wasn’t already star-studded enough, THE STAYCATIONERS added another dash of luxe, styled in designer pieces courtesy of Hollywood Closet Rentals (a brand new service for bloggers and influencers that allows users to gain access to designer pieces for 30 days). Talk about a never-ending dream wardrobe for the staycay life.
With lobby walls reminiscent of the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame (thanks to the hotel’s Creative Director Matthew Rolston), THE STAYCATIONERS had no choice but to act as if their portraits had been hung. Cue the interactive hallway video booth for selfies by the dozen before heading to the velvety bar for last call.
