Douglas Lyle Thompson loves hotels as much as we do. That’s why we asked the California-born, Brooklyn-based photographer to go on a 24-hour staycation with us to take you inside the newly renovated rooms and spaces at The Redbury New York. It was an action packed day to night with pizza (an NYC essential), stunning skyscrapers jutting into the horizon, plush bedding, and The Redbury’s classy rock ‘n’ roll vibe. Douglas captured that all, plus some quintessential Big Apple landmarks. Check out his 24-hours below and follow Douglas for even more travel-inspired photography, and to experience your own Redbury stay-or-vacation, find out more here.
