This extremely industrial chic boutique hotel is a fantastic adaptive reuse of a paper factory. I liked that the Hotel was very close to the M/R 36 Street subway station. My suggestion is to take the E/F Express train to Queensboro Plaza and catch the local M/R train one stop if you are coming from the City, which is 1-2 stops away depending on how you plan to get there. In my room with 2 beds, which was a good size, I liked that the shower was separate from the toilet and sink so two of us can use the bathroom separately. Everything was very clean. The fragrance of the bathroom amenities was gender neutral. I hate when they are too flowery or musky. Good hairdryer. Fluffy towels. Inroom safe. The air conditioning worked well during the summer time heat. I understood the hotel was still gearing up and not all of the amenities were ready. The wifi worked well. It is walking distance to main drag of the Astoria neighborhood, Steinway Street. Here were some issues that the hotel should work on: (1) we were not told what services are available at the Hotel (Was there a business center? guest lounge?); (2) the TV remote button required us to press down with all our strength (3) explain how to watch other channels (which we should have been told when we checked in or find instructions in the room). We were stuck on one channel (4) have alternate restaurant suggestions that are opened really late especially when you arrive late from the airport. We walked all along Steinway Street to find out that everything closed at 10:00 PM when we were expressedly told that everything was still open at 10:30 PM. Eventually, we found a random food truck. Would I stay there again? Yes. I hope management addresses these issues to improve a good hotel.
