From the minute my wife and I stepped into the lobby we felt like VIP's. Great staff, decor and vibe at this hip hotel.
Our room did not dissapoint at all - huge jacuzzi, bed and floor to cieling windows with an amazing view of the city.
We will be back!!

There is no better place to stay in NYC than Ink48. Staff is professional and my room was perfect. The rooftop bar is a great place to be after a long day of work. During you stay it is a must to head up-stairs and take in all the views the city has to offer. In the morning we had breakfast in the first floor restaurant and it was fantastic. I truly recommend this hotel to friends, family and colleagues when traveling to the city.

Room Tip: I had a room with a view of the river.....very nice!

My husband has stayed at this hotel many times and always says that it is great and has great service and he wasn't kidding I spent a girls weekend in New York and we had a blast. all the staff was helpful from getting us reservations to getting taxis. I was suprised at how accomidating they all where. I will bring our kids back due to the location and how nice it is to be right on the water my sons will love the navy ship.

Where do I start? The rooms, the staff, the view!! It's like paradise right in the middle of the city, a great oasis to return to after a long day of shopping and eating. Everyone smiles and welcomes you back everytime you walk through the front door. Thank You Ink 48!!

Spent 5 nights at Ink48 over New Year'S Eve. Level of friendliness, cleanliness and service as very good. Competent english speaking front-desk. 10-12 minutes from 50th and 7th metro stop. Good view from higher floors at Manhattan skyline. Very nice 16th floor bar with great views. Complementary wine in the lobby between 5 and 6 pm added to the niceties. Good large room with nice modern bathroom with walk-in shower. Booked via German travel agent at an excellent price. A bit noisy out towards 11th Ave but that's only to be expected in NY in central area and good view.

Room Tip: Try to get the room as high up as possible. Room out to the back is quieter but views are less good.

Definitely one of the nicer hotels I've stayed in during my trips to NY for work. Great sized rooms, very well designed and the staff is always friendly and attentive. The location is great because it's close to Times Sq, but far enough away that you don't deal with the noise of the city like you would at other hotels. Definitely recommend Ink48.

This hotel exceeds the standard in every realm of hospitality. The property, restaurant and lounge are stunning. The views are some of the best wether your room is facing the city or the Hudson. I recently stayed during the holiday season and the staff is exceptional. Every single staff member address you and makes you feel more than welcomed. The front desk staff was able to give suggestions on many different restaurants and again greeted me with a smile each time I returned. The beds are super comfortable and the decor is sleek and modern. I can't wait to return and enjoy a bath in the deep soaking (clean) tubs!!! This is by far one of the best Kimpton hotels out there and I have stayed at many.
