We recently spent three nights in the quirky, hip Box House, a place unlike any other hotel we've visited. Made of an old door factory in a semi-industrial neighborhood, the Box has strange architectural features, random books on end tables and a couple of spiffy old Checker taxicabs out in front. They're available for short trips around the trendy Greenpoint streets. The people who work here are very congenial, from the attentive doorman to the good humored desk clerks. We stayed in a room with an unusual pullout sofa that converted to a very comfy bed. The kitchen was well-equipped; shower stall was fitted with stationary tubes of soap and hair product. Our room had a nice patio whose view was partially obscured, but we could still see the tips of the Empire State and the Chrysler building. We enjoyed our stay and will likely return to the Box House.
