Very modern, comfortable city centre hotel about 10-15mins walk from Times Sq. Staff very helpful and efficient without being intrusive and really appreciated the free wine reception each early evening after walking around the city in a heatwave. Only negative was that we didn't even get to see the rooftop bar and terrace as it was closed for private functions on both days we were staying- real pity and a bit annoying as the description of the excellent views was one of the reasons we booked this hotel. Otherwise we had a great stay.

Very nice hotel near Time Square. Great views from the roof top bar at night of the City and the Hudson River. The bar on top of the hotel myst be a very popular place , based on the number of people attending. The rooms are very modern, with great views. They also have a very nice lounge in the lobby next to the restaurant . You will need to go few blocks to find some nice shopping, unless you're looking for a car. Very close to a lot of very good restaurants. Would stay here again.

As a frequent visitor to the City, I've come to appreciate and judge based upon the standards given space, noise, location, etc. Ink48 is quickly becoming a favorite place for me, despite the location (it's a bit out of the way in Hell's Kitchen for my needs.) Penn Station is about 20 minutes away- subway (1).
Rooms are clean, well appointed, standard size, beds are comfortable, all linens are very nice/soft. Robes (animal print) for the bathrooms, products are CO Bigelow. The bathroom was large for NYC - a nice treat, layout was functional. If you are traveling with colleagues or friends the door is smoked glass, part of the wall as well, some of the modest/privacy folk may want to opt for separate rooms- it doesn't bother me in the least. My room faced north so I had a striking Hudson River View and could see the GWB, that was lovely. There was a cruise ship also docked at the time I checked in, but it was gone later. Daily wine reception in the lobby, a special treat - a local author was on for a book signing, I really enjoyed that! I did not eat at the restaurant, I did have a drink at Press Lounge - oddly, last call was early - I believe because the bar on the roof was open. I did also go up to the 16th floor to the roof bar for a drink, but did not stay long- space inside was limited (partially enclosed) and it was raining, so that was partially why it was crowded... Beautiful views of Time Square & the Empire State Building were very nice. I'll be back & hopefully the weather will cooperate.
This property accommodates guests with pets, I thought that was sweet... I do not have allergies and it does not deter me from wanting to stay again in the future. Staff are friendly, helpful.. Rooms are great, hallways clean. It's a WINNER!

Because I've had great experiences with Kimpton properties, I booked here when the Eventi in New York was sold out, even though this added a cab ride versus other hotel brands closer to my business meeting. Nothing about my experience was special. The decor and amenities were typically cool, but my room was just three floors up and facing the highest volume street traffic so noise was a problem. Only in town one night, but from arrival to departure I was just a person spending money there, not a special guest like I have felt at other Kimptons. Won't be going back.

Room Tip: Upper floors, preferably facing river but not facing 11th avenue

I booked this hotel for 5 day stays last week based on the majority positive reviews. I wished I had read the review posted by ellieinboston on February 24, 2013 before I booked the hotel.
The design of hotel is modern, the room is clean and the staff is friendly. Unfortunately our room is located in the 5th floor and it faces 11th avenue which was very noisy through the night. You probably will lose 3-4 hours of sleep if you are not a deep sleeper. There was a night club nearby, we can still hear noise on the street... The staff told me that ALL rooms with two double beds(good for a family stay) are facing the 11th avenue. This hotel might be good for individual stay or couples but not for a group of 3 - 4 persons if your room is not in the higher floor.
This is our first stay with Kimpton hotel, the experience was kind of disappointed.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor when you book the hotel.

This was my 3rd stay at Ink48 and as always the staff were excellent, really helpful, freindly and very relaxed.
The location is great, easy access downtown with great views of the river and the New York skyline, highly recommend the hotel to fellow travellers.

The hotel is situated near the Hudson in Hell's Kitchen. Our room (city view king) offered an incredible view of the city throughout the day. Upstairs the rooftop terrace Press Lounge offers a fantastic location to grab a drink overlooking the city. As all Kimptons go, there is a great wine reception at 5pm and the service is always impeccable.

Catching a show on Broadway was a reasonable 15-20 minute walk away. Getting here from Penn Station was a $9 ride for two. Overall a great neighborhood to explore (go on a foodie tour) from. Only thing to be aware of is that the kitchen closes by 10:30 so no late night snacking options in-house. The concierge however was able to recommend a place nearby that delivers with very reasonable prices for that late night craving. Looking forward to my next visit already.
