Reason to Stay No. 1: Acclaimed photographer and Redbury creative director Matthew Rolston combed NYC archives to unearth quintessential city scenes from bygone eras. The vintage photos are incorporated throughout the hotel, from larger-than-life images lining the entryway to collections of framed photos adorning guest room walls.
Reason to Stay No. 2: Music is the heartbeat of the hotel. Gramophones serve as alarm clocks in guest rooms, rock history photos are abundant and the staff is building musical opportunities into the hotel’s programs, including a future musician-in-residence.
Reason to Stay No. 3: Danny Meyer’s popular restaurant Marta is housed on the ground floor. This Roman-inspired pizzeria offers crusty pizza, an all-Italian wine list and an open kitchen to watch that delicious dough fly. Can’t make it downstairs? Marta handles the room service.
Reason to Stay No. 4: Thoughtful touches. There are “Dublin doors” for the guest rooms—doors painted in a variety of colors to help you remember the way back after an evening of “one too many.” Just off the lobby is cozy Bar Marta, where you can enjoy a specialty cocktail. When the weather is nice, a terrace strewn with lights and filled with greenery entices guests.
Reason to Stay No. 5: Location, location, location: Located in the neighborhood NoMad, the hotel is near great shopping and restaurants, Madison Square Garden, the Empire State Building and the Theatre District.
