Just back from our 1st time in NYC, booked this hotel on reviews and the 'fabulous roof top bar'! Check-in was brief, no mention of the wine reception which was confirmed on our invoice, we discovered this was a glass of wine served in the foyer between 5-6pm each day - on our last day! On booking, I had requested... More

Another fabulous Kimpton Hotel, The Ink48 Hotel hosted our wedding party's recent stay in Manhattan and our reception lunch was held in their Print Restaurant. Naturally we were a bit nervous about how such an event for 20 guests would come off, but everything actually went very well. Everyone was happy and had only great things to say about this... More

First, let me say that I am a Kimpton fanatic. I always check to see if there is a Kimpton in my price range when I travel for work or fun.

I stayed here 2.5 weeks ago as I was spending the weekend the NYC. I've stayed at many Kimpton hotels around America and unfortunately was not impressed by this one.

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.
