In a match made in heaven, a new hotel is coming to a major boulevard in Flushing.
The Parc Hotel will be the latest addition to Flushing’s booming hotel scene when it opens at 39-16 College Point Blvd. in the first quarter of 2014. The 12-story structure is just blocks away from the neighborhood’s transportation hub at Main Street and Roosevelt Avenue, and from attractions like Flushing Town Hall and the Sky View Center.
According to Natalie Serse, area director of sales for the Parc Hotel, the location was chosen for its closeness to the 7 train and the Long Island Rail Road, as well as Main Street.
“The Parc Hotel will be Flushing’s first and only luxury, boutique hotel. We are aimed at bringing a level of affluence currently unmatched to the area,” Serse said. “With modern chic design, floor to ceiling windows in every custom-designed room, views of Manhattan from most guest rooms, concierge services, a high attention level to guests’ needs and a rooftop bar with amazing views of the City, the Parc Hotel is definitely going to be a step above the rest.”
The privately-owned, independent hotel, under construction since February 2012, was designed by Lang Architecture. The Manhattan-based company has built structures throughout the United States, being responsible for several buildings in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. Among its designs is the Shabu Shabu Restaurant in Flushing.
All of the hotel’s 96 guest rooms will feature a variety of amenities, including complimentary WiFi, a mini-fridge, in-room safes, energy-efficient climate control, a dog spa menu and spa-inspired bathrooms.
The 96 rooms break down into 19 one-king bed, 55 one-queen bed, six two-queen beds, eight two-twin beds, six queens suites with a sleep sofa and two king bed suites with a sleep sofa. The suites will be located on the 11th and 12th floors.
Besides what is included in each guest room, the Parc Hotel plans to offer a multitude of services for the use of its customers. Complimentary continental breakfast will be provided each morning, which can be enjoyed in sidewalk seating areas outside the lobby. A business center, fitness center and rooftop lounge are already installed, with plans for on-site dining coming in the near future. The hotel is in negotiations with different vendors who may handle the dining service.
Personal car services can be arranged for hotel guests and valet parking is available.
As it approaches its opening day, the Parc Hotel will be putting together some grand opening specials for guests. If you would like more information or want to place reservations, call (718) 358-8897 or visit its website at www.theparchotel.com.
Serse added that the hotel already has started receiving reservations.
“There’s definitely a lot of positive feedback,” she said. “It’s a great location.”
