“Our new favorite NYC hotel!”
Reviewed 10 June 2011

My husband & I stayed at Ink48 this past Memorial Day weekend. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. We were voluntarily upgraded to a room on a higher floor. The views of the city are so spectacular from this hotel that the higher floor the better. Also minutes after we entered our room a complimentary bottle of champagne & a plate of delicious cookies arrived with a lovely note congratulating us on our anniversary. We loved the complimentary wine hour and the roof top lounge was amazing. Being there during Fleet Week was a bonus since we could see the various ships docked nearby. Our bed was so comfortable and had top notch linens. The large walk-in shower was also great. Every member of the staff we encountered was very professional and hospitable. We now consider Ink48 our favorite NYC Hotel.

My wife and I visited New York for our three year anniversary this past May and chose to stay at Ink48 based on a great recommendation from family. This hotel was beyond amazing. The room was exquisite, the service remarkable, the staff top notch, and the entire mood of the hotel completely enhanced our stay.
One example, while making our reservation I happened to mention it was our anniversary; not only were we warmly greeted and congratulated upon our check-in but the staff went above and beyond in the form of sending up a personalized note, desserts, and even a botle of champagne the first night we were there. We were blown away by this kind, and very personal act, that you don't see very often anymore in any business. There was never a time during our stay that we felt anything but comfortable. We will definitely be returning to Ink48 anytime we are in NYC.

Always love staying at Kimpton properties and this was our first visit to Ink48. Our room was perfect, amenities very nice and the views from their rooftop patio was fantastic towards both the Manhattan skyline as well as the Hudson River. A fun place to stay and only a 10 minute, safe walk towards Times Square. I would recommend Ink48 over staying right in Times Square which is too noisy and crowded, but worth a night-time visit to see the lights. Lots of restaurants and bars a few blocks away too.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor if available

Really enjoyed our stay here. We updgraded to the Huson Suite for one night but actually preferred the city views on the other side in our deluxe king room. Stunning! The roof terrace bar is great too. We had a problem with the air con in our room which they couldn't seem to fix but apart from that no complaints. Very friendly staff and decent breakfast.

I have stayed at Ink 48 several times for business. The hotel, it's location and staff are nothing short of amazing. The roof deck on the 16th floor is a destination in itself.

This past weekend I was visiting for pleasure. The Riverview Terrace Room has it's own patio ~ on the 17th floor with sweeping views of the Hudson. The entire staff, and Olga (concierge) in particular made the weekend even more special, with genuine enthusiam for making our stay perfect.

From the minute you enter the hotel, you are greeted warmly and welcomed openly.
The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable, with sweeping city view or great views of the river.

The spa is bliss......

I can't wait to go back.

Stayed at Ink48 for Memorial weekend. Excellent hotel, great restaurant and awesome roof lounge. No real complaints or drawbacks however it is a few blocks from things but in a very safe area and we had no problems walking anywhere.

It was our first Kimpton Hotel too, as well as our first trip to NYC. Will do it all again as soon as we can.
