As you can imagine I had an amazing stay in New York City and on top that I had the privilege to spend a weekend at the Hamptons during lobster weekend. I you have followed my Instagram stories you have had a peek of my whereabouts during my travel. I had the privilege to stay at a very stylish, recently opened hotel in Long Island called: Paper Factory Hotel.
The hotel plays with his story – integrated old paper mesh and built the stairs around a tower of books. It creates its own atmosphere, inviting guests in a cool but also really cozy world.
The boutique hotel has 122 rooms in typical New York style. The brick walls, selected retro furniture and decoration make so much joy that you feel right at home and really just want to move in pronto.
The new $27 million hotel pays homage to the building’s former life as a paper factory with polished concrete floors, massive windows, a dramatic column made from books and machinery repurposed as decor. Platform beds and clean-lined dressers form a neutral backdrop for large artwork, much of it created locally, and mismatched vintage—a retro trunk here, a painted chair there. The toilet and sink are separated from the shower (great for people getting ready at the same time) and include Gilchrist and Soames bath products. Should I say more?
The hotel is located in the very hip bohemian district on Long Island, Queens. Manhattan Midtown is just a 15 minutes ride. A great tip to remember: Every second Sunday of the month they host Open Canvas. Open Canvas connect artists and their different styles to work on a project together. As a hotel guest you can participate.
Around the hotel
After a little less than ten minutes Astoria you’ll find the Kaufman Arts Districts Kaufman Arts District, home to the impressive Museum of the moving Image.
Also nearby at Long Island City, you’ll find MOMA’s contemporary collection at PS1 always delights, especially during their outdoor summer party, Warm Up. Meat lovers can indulge in the bone-in burger at the inventive Michelin-starred M. Wells Steakhouse. And you will love to have the vintage barkeeps at Dutch Kills cocktail you up something original.
A relaxing, exquisite hotspot hotel which I can highly recommend. The rooms are absolutely awesome. The staff friendly and Personally, I can’t wait to be back. #LongIsland #NewYork #paperfactoryhotel
