“Ink 48-great place to stay in NY”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

My wife and I were in NY on business at the Javits Center for a (5) night stay. We always try to stay at Kimpton Hotels, however this was our first stop at Ink 48. We were very pleased. All went well from check-in to check-out. Great service, comfortable accommodations, great location, good value. Would stay there again any time, hands down.

Room Tip: Our room faced East and was a great view. Went up to the roof top lounge and could see that West wou...

I stayed here while working in NY. The location is a bit inconvenient but otherwise the hotel is great. Nice room with a wonderful view of downtown and the Hudson River. There's a beautiful bar at the top--a good place for clients. And they have a wine hour from 5 to 6 which is a nice way to wind down the work day. Only problems were elevators--they have too few--and the noise of a nightclub one block away. I'm surprised the hotel has not spoken to them about it because you can hear it until very early in the morning on the west and north sides of the hotel.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, get a higher floor room. The views are killer.

Hello,

Thank You for the kind words, our rooftop remains one of NYC best roof top bars and I agree a wonderful place to host family, friends, and clients. The sweeping views of midtown Manhattan can surely leave a lasting impression.
With great success we have worked with the venue to mitigate noise issues.

I stayed here with girlfriends on a shopping trip in Dec 2011. The concierge was SO helpful (as in super duper discount coupons for Macy's and excellent restaurant recommendations). The rooms were really large by NYC standards, the bathroom was very clean and modern. The lobby lounge and restaurant were buzzing and really fun. The rooftop lounge at night was romantic (too bad I was with 4 chicks!). Although the hotel is a bit left of centre, on 11th ave, it helped with taxis since we didn't get caught up in midtown traffic coming back from Soho or Little Italy. Easy to find and get around. You can walk around and there are lots of quaint breakfast places and restaurants generally in Hell's Kitchen, Bit pricey, but if you're splitting the cost with a room-mate, quite do-able for a New York weekend getaway.

Hi,

One of the many great features of Ink48 is our team members who are so attentive and passionate about providing great personable service & the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood. Ink48 resides in a culinary haven; Hell’s kitchen restaurants can truly satisfy any palate.

Agreed! our lobby bar and restaurant is phenomenal and to top it off our 16th floor Press Lounge is an attraction on its own with its stunning views of NYC.

We look forward to welcoming you back.

This was my first stay at a Kimpton Hotel and I was definitely impressed. The check-in process was a snap, all of the staff were incredibly friendly, and the room was really spacious (especially for New York city) and had great decor and a really cool vibe. I was on the 7th floor and had a great view of the city lights. My only complaint would be that there aren't a lot of restaurants within a 2-4 block radius. I did order room service though and it was great.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the view.

Green Features: I hung up my towels to avoid having them replaced but the cleaning staff replaced them with fresh towels anyway. That defeats the purpose of reusing towels to conserve water.

My wife and I went to NY City on Thanksgiving to experience the Macys Parade and Christmas hubbub. Ink48 was wonderful as all the hotels in the Kimpton were that we have experienced. Each one preserving the aura of the area it is located in while being a first class establishment. We had dinner there on Thanksgiving and it was wonderful. Great rooftop bar, great service and decent rates. I'd stay there again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the upper floors so you can enjoy the view.
