Arrival/Check-In: After an early-morning flight and a full day of meetings, I was looking forward to settling in at The Redbury. To get to the main lobby, I entered the side entrance. Before stepping foot in the hotel, I was greeted by a hotel employee who graciously took my luggage. The friendly front desk attendant immediately welcomed me before I even reached the reservation desk. Within the five minutes it took to check in, I admired the old Hollywood glamour décor of the lobby, which was not particularly large or too extravagant but warm and welcoming.
Guest Quarters: The guestroom was spacious and made for a homey environment. Colorful pillows, argyle-printed walls and modern artwork brightened the neutral bedding and furniture of the room. As a working traveler, I appreciated the large desk area, equipped with easy-to-access outlets. I particularly enjoyed using the old-fashioned record player and vinyl collection, quite a unique and nice change from a standard iPod deck.
The bathroom had a luxurious feel with bright lighting, an oversized glassed-in shower and a large white sink and vanity.
Services/Amenities: Staying two nights at The Redbury, I was fortunate to experience the on-site dining. After my first day of meetings, I enjoyed a delicious, light dinner at Lorenzo, the hotel’s bar and restaurant, where I found a seat at the bar. The service was wonderful: From the bartender and servers to the manager, the staff was friendly and attentive. I ordered in-room breakfast from Lorenzo, but the menu is limited and, as an early riser, I wished service began earlier.
One of the best amenities of The Redbury is the rooftop pool and deck. It offers great views of the city and a relaxing, quiet atmosphere. I did not use the fitness center, which is not on site at The Redbury; guests have access to the fitness center at the nearby SBE property, SLS Hotel South Beach.
The Experience: I thoroughly enjoyed staying at The Redbury. The homey atmosphere of the rooms and the friendliness of every staff member made for a welcoming stay. The property can accommodate the demands of either a leisure or a business trip.
