I booked this hotel as it was offered as a sponsor to our trade show Art Expo at Pier 94. I also picked it because it was the closest to the show and said it had a great view of the NY Skyline. It was AMAZING - the place is spectacular, the view from the rooftop was breathtaking and I... More

This hotel is superb! Well appointed, comfortable rooms, great location, and, best of all, service is 5 star. The staff is truly welcoming and attentive to all your needs. The courtesy and genuine consideration of the staff dwarfs that of some of the more expensive hotels (I've been to several, Parker Meridien, Tribecca Grand, Mandarin, Four Seasons) - the staff...

I travelled with a girlfriend over St. Patrick's Day weekend to New York and stayed 3 nights at Ink48. we arrived at the hotel at 11am and the front desk was really friendly and upgraded our room so we could get into a room immediately! We were really impressed. The room was lovely, much larger than your standard "New York"... More

Every once in awhile you come across a place that causes a dilemma. Do I write the raving review and let everyone else know how wonderful this place is and risk it becoming too popular and expensive or do I keep it a "secret"? Well, my experience this weekend is well worth that risk. I was lucky enough to be... More

We enjoyed a Sunday staycation at Ink48. The rate was fantastic and included a bottle of win and snacks from the chef. Thanks to Chris at the Front Desk who made a special request to have our red wine be a bottle of Pinot Noir. I had to call down after several hours to inquire when the wine and snacks... More

Wonderful stay! Our Mother/Daughter Week was made because of the friendly staff. We felt safe and well taken care of. I don't advise room service (our 2 burgers and fries were $85) but all else was perfect!

Hotel staff was friendly. Common spaces and room were clean and attractive. Neighborhood wasn't very clean and attractive, but it would appear that they are in the process of re-vamping the area. In any case the hotel was great and I did not feel unsafe walking in the area which was in close proximity to theater district, times square, the... More

Hello epjm, Thanks so much for your review, and the kind words. Seems like you really got to experience both the hotel and what our neighborhood has to offer. 11th Ave can seem a little out there, but it is certainly close to a lot of great stuff in NYC and very glad you were able to take advantage.

Total relaxation. From the moment you reach the hotel the entire staff was warm and welcoming. Professional, yet personal. Our room was on the 11th floor with a great view of the Hudson and the Intrepid. Spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathroom, huge and up to date amenities at every turn. We relaxed in the rooftop bar, which was warm... More

I come often to NYC on business, and I was truly amazed by the friendliness of all of the staff. As a Director of Sales at a luxury hotel, I really appreciate your quality in all of the small details, bringing a WOW factor to the whole stay.
