Question: What do you do when your home renovations take longer than expected and you have over-stayed your welcome at your friends? Or the noise at the co-working space is driving you crazy?
…You are finally moving into a new place mid month and you are stranded for two weeks living out of a suitcase? Or worse, your furniture is not arriving for another month?
Answer: Q&A Residential Hotel, found in the 66 story landmark Art Deco building, is your home away from home. They offer 132 apartment-sized suites ranging from 500 to 1,400 square ft. with the features reminding a home. You can expect: a full sized kitchen including a dishwasher, valet laundry/ dry cleaning, fitness center and virtual concierge.
In addition to hotel amenities like: daily housekeeping, unlimited free wifi, unlimited local and long-distance calling, plush bedroom and bath linens. Plus, bath amenities by L’Occitane as an added treat – you’ll almost forget that it’s not your permanent address. All this, for no minimum stay either.
Upon entering the suite, you will immediately notice the modern décor which is a result of the design efforts of Furnished Quarter’s in-house design team led by Steve Saide, in collaboration with Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz, the designer behind the Mondrian Hotels in both New York and LA.
If you are traveling for business, the soon-to-be-open Black Fox Coffee (planned for June 2016), will serve up the best artisanal java from the land down under.
Moreover, if you want to grab and go, complimentary coffee/tea and breakfast treats are offered in the hotel lobby every morning.
And for those wanting to stock up the full-sized fridge the 13,000 sq ft Urban Market will be an oasis of high quality, gourmet prepared food to satisfy everyone tastes after a long day at the office.
Want a full fridge without the trip to the store? Grocery service is provided with delivery straight to your suite.
Need a space to meet or print out some must need documents? A business center is located next to conference rooms.
Lastly, and even more exciting, is the Michelin-starred chef April Bloomfield’s collaboration with restaurateur Ken Friedman. A four-level dining and drinking complex on the roof top is planned to open in 2017.
The accessibility to subways 2,3,4,5,J, Z,A and C make Q&A the obvious answer to all of your questions.
