Reborn in 2015 after a $10-million renovation (and sold to Marriott in 2016), Q&C is one of the better of the new crop of millennial-targeting hotels. It’s got the requisite distressed leather sofas in the “living room”-style lobby; industrial lighting and hardware bits; scratchy blues tunes playing in the hallways; and communal tables where you can plug in and collectively stare at screens. But there’s also a vintage shuffleboard table, a terrific selection of art and music coffee-table books for perusing in stylized nooks, and wink-wink cameo silhouettes of Fats Domino and Duke Ellington. Totes adorbs. Also, while many of the millennialist properties have slashed food and drink options to the grab-and-go variety, Q&C has a darn good lobby restaurant and bar. The property shares two buildings split by a narrow street. Rooms are small but stylish in muted grays, browns, whites, and brick; subway-tiled, single-sink bathrooms have metal barn doors and those evil half-glass shower doors. In Building A, the third-floor rooms have huge windows; otherwise try for one with a view (floors 8–12); in Building B, snag #14 or #23. Rooms down low can face other buildings or suffer from street noise. Service-wise, it’s not the Ritz, but staff are cute, friendly, and generally on top of things. Hopefully Marriott’s influence won’t undo the individuality.
