Two brand-name hotels are scheduled to open in Queens in August.
Four Points by Sheraton is set to open at 33-68 Farrington St. in Flushing, while a Holiday Inn Express & Suites will be opening at 64-10 Queens Blvd. in Woodside.
The soft opening and ribbon cutting ceremonies for both locations are tentatively set for Aug. 2, with rooms available after Aug. 15, says Sherry Chu, a spokesperson for Real Hospitality Group, which manages both properties on behalf of Century Development Group.
The Sheraton will have 210 rooms, a business center and a 7,000 square foot meeting room. It will occupy space in the newly-constructed 15 story Farrington Tower.
In addition, the hotel will have an on-site fitness center, an indoor pool plus a bar and restaurant on location.
The Sheraton is located in downtown Flushing near subway/train stations and within a short walking distance to bars and restaurants.
The hotel will also have 100 employees.
Meanwhile, the Holiday Inn Express will have 135 rooms, a business center and a 1,200-square foot meeting room. It will also include an on-site fitness center.
The Holiday Inn, which will have about 40 employees, is located on the Queens Boulevard thoroughfare, accessible to business travelers.
The grand opening parties for both hotels are expected to be held in September.

Are these hotels going to serve tourists or prostitutes??
Gee great another Holiday Inn for homeless .Yes QB is now the mecca for building hotels & turning into shelters .I got one right on corner of 53St QB & let me say there fights, shouting screaming at 2am they sit on steps of private homes & leave their garbage & sell drugs.Yes that is what they do to our block !
I cringe when I hear another Hotel (cough cough) Homeless Shelter is opening …. Queens soon will be the capital of Hotels I mean homeless shelters… It would be interesting to see a map of how many we actually have.
Many commenters on here are deeply opposed to using these for homeless people.
Serious question: How do you think homelessness should be addressed?
Send them to the SUN
Everyone deserves a safe and clean place to sleep
Nobody deserves anything just for existing.
Keep these open as real hotels, not operating as shelters!
Will they be used as homeless shelters?
they surely will be used for homeless shelters and that is a fact –
As long as we have DeBlasio and “his people” after him you can count on it!
Not a fact. The hotels are being emptied of homeless people. After they are fumigated and scrubbed down normal people will again be allowed to stay there. I wouldn’t though but that’s just me. Stop making things up.
I would imagine so based on the other hotels on QB.
probably not the best time to be opening up new hotels.
It is if their true intention is to use them as homeless shelters. You know hotel is code for homeless shelter. Neighborhoods tend not to like them so they sneak them in.
