Stayed June 3-5 two nights. We tried to get a room in Manhattan, but NYC was booked solid, and the rooms available were outrageously priced. So, we found the Paper Factory in Long Island City. Kinda weary about it, but the reviews were pretty good. The price for our Executive King room was $215 a night plus $35 tax/charges.
We arrived at 1030 AM after a red eye. Previous posters said the hotel was strict on the 4PM check-in time, but our front desk rep checked her computer and said she had a room we could check into right away. The front desk staff members were very charming and efficient on all shifts. We were a bit apprehensive at first about the neighborhood - heavy industrial. But in reality, it wan't that bad. The room it self was as advertised - very clean, and trendy to go with the total hotel motif. It is a fun hotel. The subway stop is right across the street about 60 feet from the front door. Easy and quick access into Manhattan.
Only complaints are that our room safe did not work. We reported it to the front desk and they said they would be right on it. We took our valuables with us. Upon our return, no fix - and no note or communication as to what was happening. We just decided to ignore it and take our small valuables with us when we left the room. Also - no soda/vending/ice machines. In fairness, they are working on a bar/restaurant which looks like it is 2-3 months away from being finished. The coffee bar is open 0730 to around noon. Sometimes the hallways can get a little noisy, but for us it was no big deal.
Would we go again? You bet! But, I hope they lower their rates when NYC is hustling and full as during our stay. It is a fun hotel!
