Paper Factory Hotel

A new hotel has just opened in a renovated old paper factory that contains vestiges of Long Island City’s industrial history.

The Paper Factory Hotel, located at 37-06 36th Street, has incorporated many old items into the design—such as an antique paper machine.

“”We have preserved its intricate machines and interspersed them in our space, keeping alive the roots of our hotel and the stories it brings with it,” according to the hotel website. “We wished to hold on to the charm of this industrial age.”

The five story, 122-room hotel, opened on December 5th and has rooms starting around $200 and features continental breakfast and complimentary Wi-Fi. The hotel has a café in the lobby, meeting and event spaces and a public parking lot.

The hotel will soon feature a bar and fitness center.

It is a perfect location if you are spending time in midtown. Subway is right across the street- 10 minutes and we were at Bloomingdales! Easy Peasy – loved it! Price was wonderful and the atmosphere is so cool. Planning on staying again.
