For families looking to experience the excitement of Lower Manhattan without having to squeeze into the smaller pod-like hotel rooms often found in the city, Q&A Residential Hotel is a great option. In a historic building in the heart of the Financial District (now known as FiDi), Q&A offers fully furnished apartments for short- and long-term stays.
The hotel features studios and one-bedroom units, and at 500 to 1,400 square feet, rooms are roughly three times the size of the average New York City hotel offering. The decor is modern, with a state-of-the-art kitchen that has a refrigerator, an oven, a microwave and all the necessary accessories for in-room meal prep. Bathrooms feel contemporary with a subway-tiled shower/bathtub, mirrored medicine cabinets and slate floors. Bleached wood floors line the rest of the unit, with plush area rugs and gray walls. Wrought-iron fixtures, simple pedestal tables and a curated stack of books on cube-shaped end tables make the rooms both upscale and homey. Plus, despite feeling like an residential apartment, rooms include daily cleaning service and all the traditional hotel amenities clients have come to expect.
One of New York City’s tallest skyscrapers when it was built in 1932 (only the Chrysler and Empire State buildings were larger at the time), the building at 70 Pine Street is mostly residential, with four floors dedicated to the hotel. The art deco lobby is filled with period details — from marble floors to the geometrically patterned walls and ornate elevator trim.
The property is close to several tourist hot spots, including the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, the New York Stock Exchange and other attractions. It’s also across street from the Wall Street subway station (2 and 3 lines), making the entire city accessible.
In addition, there is a full gym available to hotel guests that features a sauna. In the building’s lobby, Black Fox Coffee serves custom coffee drinks and delicious breakfast options, while the recently opened Blue Park Kitchen serves salads and sandwiches. City Acres is a two-level supermarket with prepared foods such as pasta, sushi and sandwiches, as well as groceries for families who want to cook in the unit. It’s located around the corner from the hotel, but delivery is also available.
A stay at Q&A means that families don’t have to compromise on space, luxury or price when they travel to the Big Apple — leaving more energy for making memories.The DetailsQ&A Residential Hotelwww.qandahotel.com
