The Paper Factory is a great hotel with excellent amenities. The staff was really friendly and accommodating. It is also a block away from the 36th street subway station, and 15 mins from Laguardia, so a very convenient location. I will absolutely stay here next time I come to NYC.

This hotel is in a great location - close to the Subway for easy access to Manhattan. The hotel also looks modern and industrial from the outside. However, the room are dark, dirty, super low on amenities, and poorly designed. Should have believed the latest reviews. Our room did not have a coffee machine (while all other rooms did). When we asked the front desk, we were told they would send a new one, which never arrived. The room did not have any extra pillows or comforters. The bathroom floor was sticky and not that clean when we arrived. Other minor issues - the room has one switch for the lights near the door, and none near the bed - so you gotta get up, turn off the lights and then make your way to the bed in the dark. Who designed these rooms?

If it weren’t for the relatively nice staff and proximity to the airport, this rating would be lower. The room we received looked nothing like any of the pictures. The bed was springy and uncomfortable. The pillows were thin and felt empty. We asked the front desk for 4 more pillows and were told “absolutely.” Then someone from service arrived and told us, “I’m only giving you 2.” The shower looked dirty and there was hair coming out of the drain (before anyone had showered). There was little to no lighting available in the room, so it felt dark the whole time. In fact, one of the 4 available small, dim lights was out. No fridge, so if you’re expecting that, I would be sure to ask. Just overall not the most pleasant experience… And it was disappointing because I have stayed here twice before and had a MUCH better experience. It seems as if some of the rooms are fine and some of the rooms are just awful. I have yet to find a great one. Do not recommend.

This place is disappointing on a number of fronts. Firstly, they sell their rooms as having a kitchenette, but when you get to the room that amounts to a sink, a coffee machine and a microwave. All hotel rooms in the world have a sink (in the bathroom) and some type of coffee making abilities. You don’t have a kitchenette, you have a microwave - please don’t misrepresent yourself. 2ndly, lack of service. Firstly, there is a literal lack of housekeeping service, due to COVID, unless if explicitly scheduled. That is fine, however they don’t tell you that which means by the time you’ve got back to your room at 3pm and have figured it out, it’s too late to schedule one. 3rdly, trying to get basic linen replaced due to lack of housekeeping. I had to call four times to ask for new towels and some toiletries. On my 3rd time, I incorrectly mentioned I had called 4 times over the space of a few hours, and she responded “No sir, this was only the third time”. Fair point, but rather than trying to fix the problem expeditiously she refocused the issue onto a non germane point which was to quibble about how many times I’d called and spoken to her. 4thly, on my 4th time calling it came to light that the reason the service was such a mess was they had only 1 housekeeping person working the entire hotel. He then used this as a pushback as to why I should be patient - I understand the logistical constraints but surely a hotel of this size should have more than 1 staff. Generally the hotel is artsy/hippie and prettier than your standard airport hotel, however it belongs in the 100 usd range rather than 200-400 usd range. Also, no porters at all to help with moving bags, just a couple of people behind a desk hanging out.

Great hotel, location and stay. Rooms were super cozy, clean and cute! Staff was amazing, especially Katie. She was a doll. Went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and taken care of. Looking forward to our next visit.
