While we were all otherwise occupied over the holiday and Polar Vortex season, a brand new hotel quietly opened up in burgeoning hotspot, Long Island City.

Actually The Paper Factory Hotel is still in its soft opening phase but most things are up and running. The hotel is, as you might guess, housed in a former paper factory and has preserved the 100-year-old factory's machines and scattered them throughout the space.

The hotel's 122 guestrooms retain something of an industrial vibe and we detect shades of Ace Hotels in strategically placed refurbished old radios and trunks. Prices range from $145 for a Double to $189 for a 'Deluxe King Suite.' Pretty attractive rates, we think, and, for the outer borough-averse, it's just one block from the M and R trains and three stops from Manhattan.

Those rates also include continental breakfast and, hurrah, WiFi. Even better for budget travelers is that there is a communal kitchen on-site so you can save a few dollars on eating out.

What with the nearby Z Hotel upping the boutique hotel game in LIC, we are excited to see if more hotels will open up in the neighborhood, but wonder if lowish rates are enough to entice visitors across the Queensboro Bridge.
