I REALLY like this hotel. It opened in late fall 2013, so everything is new which is great, but it’s the thoughtful choices in décor and styling that make the property comfortable, unpretentious, and cosmopolitan all at the same time. The building is an old factory in Long Island City (two stops away from 59th St. in Manhattan on the R train), and that is evident in the refinished original wood floors, lofty spaces in hallways and rooms, exposed brick, and industrial remnants (think abandoned dumb waiter shafts) of the building’s past life. My room, No. 513, had a gorgeous brown glass subway-tile shower with rainwater head, funky furniture, and vintage-inspired baseboards—the tall ones you only find in old houses anymore—cleverly cut from thick plywood sheet. In the lobby and adjacent rooms, retro seating and shabby-chic wood-paneled walls look like they were sourced from talented Sundance catalog artisans. The staff is smiling and pleasant. And while the hotel is still a work in progress—a bar is still being constructed in the lobby area—this place is already one of my favorite-ever city hotels.
