The Collective Paper Factory is located near Astoria, Queens and plenty of great outdoor dining options. It is right by the M/R train stop with close proximity to Manhattan. I stay here often when I'm on work projects nearby. The customer service has been great and Shane at the front desk has been very accommodating. The hotel is located in a historic paper factory building with high ceilings and brick details. The rooms are very clean and the hotel follows cover safety protocols. The communal spaces are nicely decorated with natural light and there is a lovely outdoor space. The vibe of the hotel is artistic/ creative which I enjoy.
Loved this hotel for my staycation very simple elegant and trendy. The best location. Staff was very friendly. Such a nice hotel right outside of manhattan. Will definitely come back again soon when Covid is over.
I booked a last minute, one night stay just to give us a break during the isolation of the pandemic and I’m so glad we chose the Paper Factory. Because of the current restrictions in NYC, the bar and restaurant were closed, but I could tell this place is very fun when in its full glory. They had a game room with shuffle board and ping pong, as well as an outdoor patio which looked very cute. The hotel itself is nicely decorated and clean, and some of the old factory elements made it feel trendy, and gave the room an open and airy vibe. While we couldn’t partake in the party scene, we had a really relaxing and quiet staycation at the hotel, thanks to the excellent care of the front desk employee, Shane. I called while booking to make sure that we could reserve a room on the top floor since we were looking to relax in peace, and he make sure we got a quiet room, and even upgraded us to one of their Manhattan Lofts. We could even see the Empire State Building and Chrysler building from our window. He was super helpful during the stay and helped make the experience feel personal and special. Thank you Shane! There isn’t much in the immediate neighborhood open right now, but if you are looking to get into Manhattan, the hotel is right next to the Subway, and a short walk or Uber to the still-lively bar and restaurant scene of Astoria. Just one suggestion- maybe stock the rooms with a mini bar, since the bar downstairs is closed, or add room service or takeout for the restaurant. For dinner we just ordered delivery and there was also a 7-eleven nearby where we picked up some waters, which wasn’t a hassle at all. Overall a really nice little getaway thanks to great service and a calm, hip vibe, even during covid.…
I booked a last minute stay here for myself & my sister and wow, the people at front desk exceeded my expectations when it came to customer service! Shane & Keiry thank you so much!! I’m coming back here just for you two! ♥️♥️
I stayed at the Paper Factory at the end of January for a weekend. I really enjoyed my stay and the proximity to the subway. It's only 4 stops away from Manhattan! I was able to get to the MoMA quickly and easily. I wish I would've spent more time exploring Long Island City though. I really enjoyed my dinner on my last night at The Highwater on Broadway which is a 15 minute walk from the hotel. The decor, the staff and the view from my room were all nice. Unfortunately, the restaurant wasn't open yet but there are plenty of great places all around. I would definitely stay here again!
