I fly to NY regularly and ever since I came across the collective paper factory I have not stayed at any other hotel. I really enjoy their design (rustic and industrial) that you can observe all throughout the hotel. But the reason I always choose TCPF over other hotels is because of the cleanliness of the rooms, the convenient location, and the spacious rooms compared to what you get in Manhattan. The staff is friendly, but I am most familiar with Marijana, I encountered some reservation issues and she swiftly and professionally assisted me in solving the issue and making sure I had an even more wonderful stay by upgrading us to their penthouse, which was a marvelous room with breathtaking views of the city during sunset, and extremely spacious. When it comes to room types I prefer their king room to stay on the economic side, however, whenever I can, I splurge I like to upgrade to their manhattan loft.

At first glance the hotel had potential but it stopped there. Best as I can tell this was once a paper factory that has been converted to a hotel. The floors are all older wood, acoustics in the halls are awful and the rooms appear to have been made with partitions, and in the worst possible use of space. I guess if you are from Europe and are used to tiny rooms, you may feel right at home, but as someone based in the US, this was very disappointing. The electrical outlets were sparse and located in stupid places which made no sense. The windows were not the least bit sound insulated so you could hear every noise outside at all hours of the night. The desk/furniture seemed to come from someone's resale shop (and not in a good way), and the lighting overall was poor as well. On top of all this, the TV was tiny compared to most places I've stayed. It might have been a 27" LCD which again was the wrong size for the room. It didn't feel clean, wasn't lit well, the electrical outlets and TV was a swing and a miss too. Just didn't measure up to the lowest of expectations and I would never stay here again unless there was some kind of amazing affordable suite worth checking out to see if all of the rooms were like this one. Maybe I had a bad room; maybe they are all like this. I don't plan to come back and find out.

After my stay for 3 nights, I was charged an extra $80 by the hotel in addition to the rate agreed upon. I booked through VRBO. They never showed that extra charge. Make sure you're aware of any surprise fees.

Honestly one of the best hotels I’ve stayed at. It’s beautifully decorated and so much artwork- you can have a full blown photo shoot in here. Allison was great on helping our stay more special and accommodated to our requests. Totally recommend it here: It’s close to the city meaning the trains are nearby, rooms are spacious, and more importantly it’s clean.

I’ve now stayed at this hotel 8 times. Each time I have been genuinely impressed with the level of consideration and service I have received from their staff. The kinder and more considerate I am to them the more willing they are to go above and beyond. Moral of this story, be kind to people. I’ve never had a similar experience with upgrades or communication in any of the 25 other hotels I’ve stayed in in NYC. The hotel is cool, has a neighborhood vibe, and is close to some of the best restaurants Astoria has to offer. You don’t even need to hop on the nearby subway to go into the city. I’ll be back and it’s always the place I recommend. Mariana is damn good at her job! Thanks for the wonderful experience.
