We stayed at Ink 48 from Feb 15, 2015 to Feb 18, 2015. The room was immaculately clean and comfortable. The amenities were wonderful, including complimentary WiFI and wine in the evenings. They accommodate pets and our entire stay could not have been nicer. The staff was all friendly, professional and helpful. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Ink48 is a really nice hotel. This should be what you remember from this review. Upon arrival our room was ready at 9am way earlier than we anticipated. The staff was very friendly. The hotel is a located near the river and a bit of a walk to the subway but it's NYC you are suppose to walk. The rooms... More

We enjoyed two nights in a Hudson River Suite. The view was terrific. I can't say enough about the room, it has a funky decor but is comfortable. We woke up to a cruise ship in the terminal. The hotel sent a bottle of champagne up to help celebrate a birthday. I loved the animal print robes. We didn't have... More

Just stayed for 3 nights in this hotel for business. If you have stayed in kimpton hotel before then you will know what to expect - quirky design that doesn't feel like a chain. Spectacular view from rooftop bar. Only negative to this hotel is the location - not bad but I got a cab everywhere...

We stayed in this hotel over Westminster weekend. Immediately, the valet was there to take my car and even helped me hold one of my dogs while I was getting the other one out of the car. The concierge made us feel welcome with a hand written note and the staff seemed to genuinely love the dogs! We were upgraded... More

Ink48 is the ONLY hotel in NYC that hasn't left me wanting, although my experience is not deep. Cleanliness is never an issue, the rooms are comfortable but sheik, and the staff is truly the coup de grace of this hotel. Come downstairs and you will be pleasantly surprised by the recognition from the staff. And a free warm drink... More

First, I love Kimpton hotels. They are generally comfortable and luxurious. However, I have mixed feelings on Ink48. The good: another beautiful property, clean (and relatively large for NYC) room (we had a corner facing NE on the 12th floor), nicely appointed bathroom, friendly front desk service - on the surface exactly what you would expect from a Kimtpon.

When it comes to New York City - size and cleanliness lacks. I know, I am still recovering from neck and back rashes from my end of the trip stay at Affinia Manhattan. I started my stay in NYC to see the Westminster Dog Show. This is my 2nd time in a Kimpton Hotel - I love that they are... More

I really enjoyed the atmosphere of this gem. Our room was surprisingly roomy and very comfortable. The checkin was quick and easy and Will was so friendly, excellent service. We met friends for drink s on the rooftop bar. It was freezing outside but the area was cozy and enjoyable. We enjoyed breakfast the next morning, again excellent service. I... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
