Perfect location, super interesting people with dogs in lobby, Nice Happy hour, very modern, clean, elegant decor. Rooms beautifully decorated but were very small and we had an ugly view of brick walls!

We are a retired young at heart British couple and we can only echo other excellent reviews regarding this hotel which was carefully chosen for us by our daughter who is a travel agent. The location suited us perfectly; we walked to most places we wanted to visit and it was ideal for a boat tour and the Intrepid museum.... More

Hotel is away from busy streets. Service was... unpleasant. housekeepers constantly forget to refresh the shower gel. it wasn't happened just once or twice. Call to the room service resolves the issues but still... Press lounge no longer part of the hotel. pretend to be boutique but just overpriced.

We stayed at Ink 48 for the second half of our honeymoon. We were given a room upgrade to a lovely room on the corner of the building with views of the Hudson River and into the city. The room was very comfortable with lots of extras like an umbrella we could borrow the day it rained! As it was... More

My husband and I spent four days in New York and stayed at Ink 48. We had a wonderful stay, the staff were all very helpful but in particular Stephen Field (who knows loads of local knowledge and small landmarks that you could miss if you followed the tourist trail). They have guest "wine hour" where you can have a... More

Stayed at the Ink48 for one night for a little treat for our 2 year anniversary. We loved it. It is a bit far out but we were interested in being away from the city buzz so it was perfect. Rooftop bar is beautiful, expensive, but hey, it's NYC. We got upgraded and the room and the bathroom is huge.... 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.
