In the buzzing, semi-industrial neighborhood of Long Island City, you'll find this whimsical gem. It's set in a former paper factory and warehouse, and its 123 rooms and appealing common areas evoke industrial chic. Reclaimed lumber and polished concrete (with vintage maps embedded in the floors) feature prominently in the lobby, and there's a smattering of artwork and artfully displayed old machine parts throughout the hotel.
The rooms themselves continue the vintage aesthetic, albeit with comfy modern beds, good showers and big-city views. The 12ft ceilings and large windows add to the spacious feel, and locally created artwork and old-fashioned furniture make each room feel unique. The graffiti-stained rooftop has entrancing views of Manhattan, and the in-house restaurant, Mundo, serves eclectic global fare.
Each loft-style room at Paper Factory Hotel offers a flat-screen TV, 12-foot ceilings and upscale decor. Every room has a private bathroom with a hairdryer and luxury ROAM bath amenities. Some rooms feature a city view.
There is a 24-hour front desk and fitness centre at the hotel.
Mundo restaurant offers a Peruvian and Argentinean menu, with its signature dish being the Red Sonja. Guests can enjoy a cocktail at the on-site bar.
The Museum of the Moving Image is 0.3 miles from paper Factory Hotel, while Gantry Plaza State Park is 1.8 miles away. The nearest subway station is 36 Street, 0.1 miles away.
