Great service, friendly people, beautiful rooms. The bath tub is in the bedroom, interesting, as is the dual sinks. But don't fret, the toilet is private and so is the shower ( great water pressure and rain shower shower head).

The restaurant PRINT is in itself a destination. The Fettuccine was so good that I used the bread to finish the sauce.

Stayed: June 2014

Hey Steve S,

Thanks so much for the kind words! Sounds like you were in one of our City View Studio King Rooms which happen to be my personal favorite. So glad you enjoyed our awesome accomodations, our great staff, and the world class food at PRINT.

We take pride in providing great customer service and we appreciate you taking the time to write such a glowing review. It helps reinforce that we are doing our jobs well.

Thank you again, and hopefully see you back at Ink48 again soon.

I have stayed here multiple times when traveling on business to New York. Nice rooms, great lobby, fantastic rooftop bar (truly amazing view at night). Rooms are of average/typical size for New York but tastefully done. Always like staying here when I visit.

Great hotel in Hell's Kitchen, NYC. The rooms are a good size, beds are comfortable and the rooms have great views (but make sure its on the 8th floor and above). There's a roof top terrasse with an amazing view...good drinks, and a fun ambiance! Friendly staff and great service. Restaurant has really good food. Have only good to say about this hotel :) The location is great, very good restaurants in that district and its about 20 minutes walk to the Theater District & 40 minutes walk to the MeatPacking District!

My mother and I reserved two double beds and a bathroom with a tub before we set sail on the Queen Mary 2 earlier this month. Upon check in at Ink 48, the kind manager admitted our current room did not have a bathtub so he found another room that accommodated us perfectly. The wonderful bellman who helped us with our bags had a complimentary bottle of wine sent up to our room the next day and we were thrilled at this kind gesture. We were pleasantly surprised by the location as you are in walking distance to Times Square and The New York City Water Taxi service near the Intrepid museum. We took advantage of the complimentary infused water offered in the lobby (a great selection to choose from). A special call out to America who helped me with an urgent fax the morning of our departure. She had a confirmation waiting and could not have been more helpful. This is a great hotel with attentive staff who will go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable.

Room Tip: You can request suites that have spectacular views of the Hudson River.

My partner and I just got back from a trip to New York. Having never been to Manhattan before we really looked hard for a good hotel. We chose Ink48 and we weren't let down. On our first night, the lovely reception guy, Stephen had a bottle of champagne sent to our room - what a wonderful surprise! Thank you Stephen! We also were gifted with another bottle a day later from the hotel, Sam & Didier, thank you! We loved the room, tidy, clean, spacious, and gorgeously soft pillows! Great view of the city skyline from the 15th floor too! Being an InTouch member you get free wifi and $15 to enjoy from the mini bar! The only thing I would suggest is to have more savory snacks in the mini bar :) The rooftop bar is fantastic, expensive, but you don't see an amazing view over manhattan like that everyday! Location is great, we walked everywhere and saw all we wanted to see. All the staff throughout the hotel were friendly and always had a nice thing to say to us. Great experience!

We found this hotel because we knew that Kimpton adaptively reuses cool old buildings. The Hell's Kitchen neighborhood has some interesting restaurants, and it is still within walking distance of several subway lines, Times Square, etc. We were on the 14th floor, facing north, which provided a view of New York, the river, and the New Jersey shore. The rooftop bar is fabulous - what a view to Midtown. We got up there about 6PM on a Friday, before maximum capacity was reached and a line formed. The room with a king size bed was spacious, by New York standards - as my native New Yorker wife noted. The bathroom had a walk in shower that was very spacious (no tub). The HVAC was easy to adjust. The room also had a safe, and you program the combination. Nice feature. We will definitely stay here again when we visit NYC.

Room Tip: No room can avoid NYC street noise, but it's a 24 hour city - get over it. The HVAC fan sets up...

Room is big for a New York hotel. Bathroom size ok.

As with Kimpton hotels, the service is consistent and I like that. The Happy hour was one of the better ones - the choice of drinks was great and the Irish cider was delicious. Im glad I didnt miss the happy hour. As usual, early check-in was no prob.

I really like this hotel except that it is a little far from mta-50th street. It is about 15 mins walk from the MTA station - of coz, Im comparing this hotel with those from Times Square. If walking to High Line, its a wonderful walk in the late afternoon on 11 Ave.

Hey rentaplace22,

Thanks so much for your kind words. Our wine hour of course is one of the best perks of staying at a Kimpton, and I'm really glad you mentioned our consistent service as well. That is something we strive for. In terms of location, there is no doubt that 11th Ave. is a little out there, but I think in the end, it's kinda nice being a little removed from the craziness of Times Square.

Regardless, seems like overall, you had a great stay with us. We really appreciate you taking the time to write such a nice review. It's feedback from people like you that reasures us that we are doing our jobs well.

Hope to see you here again sometime soon!
