So we booked this hotel as my companion had seen it on secret escapes - we both visit the states a number times a year & always pack a cheeky NYC trip either at the beginning or the end Ink48 was a great find ! Large clean spacious rooms, great views & an epic bar on the top floor which... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend. The rooms were very sophisticated and nicely styled and they had an excellent value. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean and comfortable. If you are looking for a place to stay on the west side in midtown Manhattan I would recommend considering Ink48.

Room was lovely with a nice skyline view facing East. It was January but the rooftop bar was open with a good selection of local beers. The 5:00 pm wine reception included a local artist who gave us some great suggestions for nearby shopping and galleries, including Gotham Market and Blue Bottle Coffee.

I stayed for a week for work - including a turnaround trip from the airport when my flight back to Sydney was cancelled. Both times I stayedI was upgraded by the wonderful desk staff which was a bonus, and even on my emergency stay it was absolutely not a problem to be accommodated - gotta love that. The rooms are...

We stayed here for our anniversary. Good location. Close to The Daily Show, High Line, and Times Square. Good staff service. Very helpful and friendly. Rooms were small but completely had everything you'd need. Wonderful restaurant attached, PRINT. Bring earplugs or sound app because it is NYC :)

I love Kimpton hotels! We ALWAYS travel with our 3 fur babies so Kimpton brand hotels are our favorite and 'goto' hotel in the world. The Ink48 ranks my top 5 Kimpton hotel. It is like other Kimpton hotels; stylish, trendy, modern, and Super pet friendly! The $15 minibar credit is just perfect to get a (big) bottle of water... 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.
