"Great visit as usual to the Paper Factory HOtel"
I had a great stay at the paper factory, one of the coolest hotels in NY. I had a large corner room with a pop up tv and electronic fireplace with walls of windows. The hotel restaurant provides a chic atmosphere and fabulous dining. I recommend this hotel to all friends and family, a real diamond in the rough. Special thanks to Altynay for getting me a great room and being courteous in making the reservation!! -Dave
"A funky gem in LIC"
Friends of mine are in the process of moving into a new place in Jackson Heights, and I came down to help recently. The first glimpses of Queens hotels were grim--bland, major-brand offerings in the shadows of my choice of either of the major airports. Then I started to look at Long Island City, which had the charms on being closer to my friends and nowhere near the airports, all the while playing host to an apparently ever-increasing number of really interesting independent hotels. Of these, I chose the Paper Factory. I was not disappointed. As the pictures suggest, the decor is utterly unique, and even more dramatic in person. The staff, both in person and on the phone, was wonderful. I had no chance to try the restaurant, but the bar is friendly and beautiful. My room was quiet, comfortable and absolutely peaceful. One small note that I raised with the desk staff: I found it ironic that a place called the Paper Factory Hotel should have no stationery in the room with which to leave a thank you to housekeeping. A minor curiosity in a wonderful stay--highly recommended.
"Vintage at its best"
We stayed in the TPM on Christmas Holidays. Our stay was very pleasant and we found lot´s of space for recovering. The cooking site on 4th Floor is actually more a Lounge than a kitchen, unless we were missing some cutlery and dishes. You´ll get quick and easily to Manhattan, the Bronx, Harlem...the subway is only a hopp away. If you Need a grocery store etc. you may ask at the reception for directions, you´ll find everything you Need within a 10 minutes walk (or 5 minutes if you´re Walking fast :) ). One advice to the TPF: Maybe the roomservice shouldn´t replace the shower gel´s and Soap as soon as you open it. It´s a lot of waste...and maybe you could put up an "replace towels" sign like those for the bed.
"Superb hotel in Queens"
The paper factory is a really cool, trendy hotel, located in Long Island City, 2 minutes from 36th Street Subway station. The building itself is so interesting, every nook and cranny offers some new interesting artefact or piece of art to admire or wonder at. The rooms are light and airy, the quality of furnishings superb. The staff were all friendly and helpful, handyman Adam made a point of coming over and introducing himself, having a friendly conversation and generally making us feel welcome. The 4th floor has a massive lounge, with fridge, ice machine, toaster etc, so as a group of 8, we were able to use this as our meeting point throughout our stay, it felt like a home from home. The rest of New York is on your doorstep with the great location of this hotel, and the local area offers plenty of bars and restaurants, all within walking distance. I can't wait to return!
"Unique eclectic hotel, once an actual paper factory… one of a kind chic hotel with great flair!!"
My colleague and I stumbled upon this cool hotel during our last work visit to NY. We had a food truck vehicle for an event we had wrapped, so we had to stay outside Manhattan, yet craving the local fares and atmosphere NYC has to offer. First off, we arrived in the evening and found parking for our truck easily. There was ample street metered parking and it seemed to be easily available after local work hours. We proceeded to check in to the lobby, which was beautifully decorated with artistic vintage pieces and wall art. There also appeared to be a small juice/coffee bar, which was closed, but looked super cute. (We didn't get to experience, because our flight left too early) The staff onsite was friendly and helpful. They kindly upgraded us to a corner room w/ view, after discovering we were only there for a few overnight hours before flying back west. After 6 months on the road, this upgrade of a room was a true delight!! Our room had sweeping views wall to wall of the city, a cool mini retro fridge to store provisions/ water and offered great modern decor. The room was so cozy and comfy! After a long day of driving, we craved healthy fare. Not a problem… the downstairs restaurant Mundo offered an eclectic mix of Mexican meets Mediterranean dishes. (Michelin Rated) Amazing! All in all, this chic hotel had a lot more to offer than we had ever expected. I think this is our new " go to spot", when in rome, or I mean NY! *Extra notes * -The gym was an actual gym with punching bag and working machines -They were in the process of adding a beer garden adjacent to the lobby -I believe this is a pet friendly hotel -Close to the train into the city -Check out the Michelin Restaurant in the hotel lobby
