NEW YORK, Jan. 12, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Q &A Residential Hotel, the first under 30-day stay experience from renowned furnished apartment provider Furnished Quarters, has had a successful soft opening with the New York City hotel achieving significantly higher than expected occupancy in its first month of operation. Since opening its doors on November 25th, the hotel has welcomed a steady flow of visitors, which is testament for a new independent hotel not affiliated with a well-known large hotel brand.
Q &A truly brings a new category—”residential hotel”—to the U.S. hospitality industry. Enjoying accommodations that average three times larger than typical New York City hotel rooms, guests of this upscale property can feel like residents, rather than visitors.
Each of its 132 apartment-sized suites (ranging from 500 to 1,400 sq. ft.) include a variety of thoughtful custom-built amenities such as a full-sized kitchen complete with top of the line cookware, dishwasher, stove; carefully curated furnishings and king size beds across all suite categories; smart TVs with streaming capability and more.
Q &A Residential Hotel was created by Furnished Quarters as a way to provide legal stays in New York City apartments for those needing accomodations of 29 days or less. Adopting elements of the European serviced apartment model, Furnished Quarters outfitted Q &A with many amenities and services akin to those found in luxury hotels. The company leveraged its strong relationship with its established corporate client base to generate a substantial number of pre-opening reservations which helped ensure high occupancy levels during Q &A’s soft opening.
Five star guest reviews have positively dominated Q &A’s listing on Trip Advisor, the largest travel review site in the world, validating the newly established residential hotel. The spacious apartment-like suites, full kitchens, and tech-friendly features are clearly highlighted by these December 2015 guest reviews:
“The room was huge by New York standards and had everything I would expect of a long stay apartment, the kitchen was as well stocked as my own! The bed was enormous and very comfortable as was the rollaway bed they provided. They had modern touches to the room such as USB ports on the plug sockets.”
“We loved the modern decor. The kitchen area has everything you would need. Bathroom and closet were spacious as well. The hotel is located in a quiet and safe area and the staff was so friendly. We hope to stay again soon. Highly recommend.”
“The room was much larger compared to typical NYC hotel rooms and had a full apartment-style kitchen. Also, it’s an awesome Art Deco building in Lower Manhattan.”
