Rooms are huge for NYC. Rooftop bar is spacious with amazing views. Be sure to meet Nandi at the front desk. She is pleasant, engaging, and patient! The staff, in general, is great but Nandi definitely goes above and beyond!

What a massively overpriced place it was. I could have stayed in the Waldorf Astoria for the same money. Such a mediocre hotel, position wasn't that great either. Do not get suckered into the boutique hotel thing, its just not worth the money, in fact stay in the Edison, much better placed and cheaper. I booked Ink48 because of reviews on here, how surprised was I when I found out what I was getting for my money.

Dear Tony_engineer,

Thank you for your constructive feedback and I am sorry we did not meet your expectations. I would appreciate it if you can email me more details on your stay so i can improve those areas. If you decide to try another boutique hotel closer to the shopping center, please try our sister properties - Eventi Hotel, in Chelsea; Muse Hotel in Times Square or the 70 Park Hotel in Grand Central Station area.

Sincerely,

Victor

So I chose to have my 25th birthday get-together here and I just wanted to say how great Nandi was. She was extremely informative, allowed me to view the room a couple days before my check in and also showed me the Hells Over Hells Kitchen Penthouse- which I absolutely LOVED (will definitely put the penthouse to use in the near future). She was patient and made sure I was helped in a timely manner. Overall, my stay here was wonderful and thanks to Nandi I was well taken care of. Thanks Nandi and Ink 48 staff!

I travel to NY often for work. I generally stay at the Marriot of Hilton--but this time I was booked at INK48-- everything was great-- from the service to the wonderful vibe and decor. The food at Print was amazing and the 24 hour rooms service was just what i needed after my late night check-in.

The service was supreme-- and Jeffery the lead concierge was amazing and friendly.

I was in my room a bit after check-out (working)--- but instead of being rushed out--the staff said "take your time".... NEVER has that happened before. Also-- Although they do not have a "business center" I was able to work in the louge and the wonderful staff printed all of my documents for me.

All around-- this is the best hotel I have stayed at in NY-- Nice , Sexy, Great Service, Wonderful Decor, Execellent Food-- and Of Cource Jefferey!!!!!

I travel to NYC frequently and found ink48 by accident. And I love it! The view, service, space and aesthetics are all top notch and so outstanding that you can overlook the loud music in the lobby. It's been so fun to introduce new Yorkers to the hidden gem in their own city. Every new yorker I've sent their has fallen in love. Be sure to ask for a city view when booking. You can't get a view like that in NYC for the price!

The three nights we stayed were great anf the upgrade to city view suite is a must! The room was spacious and even had a tub in the bedroom which added some extra luxury to the experience. The unobstructed views were incredible and the daily free wine hour was a great way to start the evening and save money. The rooftop bar was amazing for great photo opportunities but very expensive on drinks. We enjoyed the free wine downstairs then headed to the rooftop to relax and take photos. The service was great and the walk to times square was only about 10-15 minutes with several restaurants to stop in along the way. This is a great spot for a getaway with friends or couples.
