“Nice Room, Good Service, little noisy”
Reviewed 7 October 2011

For whatever reason, I keep staying at different hotels in NYC due to rate and availability issues. This was my first stay at INK 48. I am a member of Kimpton's In touch program and have been trying to stay at their hotels. I was in NYC on business and am an experienced business traveler. I arrived at INK48 in the late afternoon and the bell staff was very busy. Check in went well, they did not have any of the upgrades available. My room was for NYC huge, a little strange with a large pillar right when you entered but very nice. Bathroom was excellent, a shower and a tub, and the shower had both a rain shower head and a telephone head. It was not 100% cleaned, there was some trash left in several of the bins. I had room service dinner which was delivered ontime and was good. The room window faced 11th Ave and I was on the 3rd floor, this did lead to some noise issues and I was woken up from street noise a couple of times. I think that they could double window this room, like other hotels in NYC, rather easily and that might really help with the street noise. Overall, I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Pick a high up room.

Great Hotel! The room was great nice view comfortable bed. Good Service too. It was quite due to the location. Love the Kimpton free wine hour. Can't wait to stay there again.

GREAT hotel. Great staff. The rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. The wine hour is always a fave at any Kimpton. I'll be back for sure.

I stayed in ink48 about a month ago while visiting New York for a few days. We decided to "splurge" a bit and get a room here rather than stay in other parts of the city or with relatives the next state over, really thankful we did! We had a great view of the river, the room was clean and nicely decorated, really comfortable bed and pillows, lots of towels, everything we needed! The front desk staff was very helpful, booked us dinner and helped organize our trip, and the attached restaurant had a nice selection of good food (definitely not fast / cheap food, the dining area was quite nice, great service from waiters, etc., more an independent restaurant feel rather than just tacking it onto the hotel). The rooftop bar was a nice touch, with great night views of the city, although apparently it isn't attached to the hotel chain.

All in all, we thought it was a great decision to stay here; it just had a much different feel than that boring generic hotel atmosphere, always nice extras that they'd thought of, (especially being very pet friendly!) and was definitely worth the cost!

During our recent stay in New York, we were recommended a hotel we had not heard of .. INK48. We were told that this was a modern hotel with a 4 star rating and reviews were good. We weren't disappointed. We loved this hotel and if INK48 is an example of Kimpton Hotels, we are now "Kimpton Hotel" converts. The hotel itself was beautifully appointed, the accommodation was fantastic! Bed was super comfortable, small touches, such as bathrobes, umbrellas etc were very nice. Can't say enough about the staff and management - some of the best from our travels. All were very helpful and friendly and nothing was a problem. Rooftop Bar also amazing and views from the hotel equal to anything in new york. Thankyou INK48, you made our holiday.

Room Tip: If you get the opportunity or can afford it - a Hudson Suite/Room.

Room size - excellent, bigger than most.

Quality - excellent newer finishes. Not beat up like so many other hotels.

View - it has one of the river or skyline; not the brick wall next door.

Service - equal to many resorts. The staff, top to bottom, is quite friendly and helpful.

Roof-top bar!

Location is great because you can zip up and down 11th quite easily before cutting across town.

Price - beats the heck out of other so-called leaders, and you get so much more for your dollar. I had been staying at places like the Waldorf or Affinia and this place blows them away.

Room Tip: Sign up for the free InTouch plan and then sign up for a last minute upgrade to a high floor with a...
