Q&A Residential Hotel Brings More to the Table | Furnished Quarters Identifies Boston as Key Growth Area

(Boston, MA) July 17, 2017 – Q&A Residential Hotel, which opened last year in Lower Manhattan, now provides even more amenities that make it feel like a true “home away from home,” helping its guests bring more to the table—the dinner table. This week marks the opening and announcement of exciting culinary and grocery options new to the hotel and its guests. With Furnished Quarters’ Q&A Hotel firmly established in New York City, the brand’s ownership has also launched its search for a prime location in Boston, Massachusetts. 

“We are pleased with the validation and success of Q&A Hotel, consistently ranking as one of the top 25 hotels in New York City according to Trip Advisor,” said Steve Brown, CEO of Furnished Quarters and Q&A Hotel operator. “We feel it’s the right time to begin an active search for the perfect location in Boston.”

The hotel is ideal for those travelers who want to live like a local while enjoying a healthy lifestyle.  Every “room” in Q&A is a real apartment and contains a full-sized kitchen and all the cookware and utensils needed to create any meal.  Guests have a large refrigerator, full stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher and more. Eating out is an option, not a requirement.

Now preparing food at Q&A is even easier with the just-opened two-story City Acres organic market and gourmet food hall—located just an elevator ride away on the lower level.  Originating in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, City Acres makes its Manhattan debut with everything from locally-sourced produce to specialty prepared foods. The food hall offers a range of palate pleasers from JuiceBrothers, Beyond Sushi, The Cinnamon Snail, Artichoke Basille’s Pizza and Vanessa’s Dumpling House. Grocery and food delivery will be available shortly for Q&A guests.

Slated to open this winter is VERTS Mediterranean Grill, a fast-casual restaurant featuring pitas, bowls and salads, and offering a healthy Mediterranean menu. 

To further please hungry and thirsty Q&A guests, Australian coffee roaster Black Fox, which has been operating for over a year, has extended its hours and is now open six days a week. In addition to artisanal coffee, pastries and light fare are available.

It’s not just the food at Q&A that’s expanding. La Palestra, the 20,000 square foot state-of-the-art fitness and wellness center which opened a year ago, has recently completed the last areas of its club and is now offering new services including massage therapy and group fitness classes. 

Q&A Residential Hotel continues to add amenities that enhance a visitor’s home-like stay in New York City and make it so easy to feel like a true New Yorker.  With Boston set to follow, Q&A’s operators will focus on bringing their successful hospitality formula to New England.
