I am beyond terrible as business hasn't allowed me a moment to leave a review. Faith at the front desk is behind incredible. She couldn't have possibly made our experience any better than she did. She was helpful, friendly, knowledgable and it wasn't in a forced 'I have to be because I work here' form. It was extremely genuine. My... More

Stayed here with a few friends for over the weekend to just celebrate my birthday in the city. Overall it was a comfortable and trendy looking hotel. We chose to stay here because we wanted to get a good night upstairs at the rooftop bar and not worry about getting back to queens after a crazy night, came here on... More

I wouldn't stay here with kids and the location is a little off the beaten path if you are visiting NYC for the first time but we got a great deal. The rooftop Bar is something to check out even if you don't drink.

Kimptons are always top notch. The staff always friendly and professional. Ink48 is no different. Open now for 5 - 6 years, they tell me it will be undergoing a full room renovation, starting September, 2015. Probably necessary. Carpet in room and bathroom door showed some signs that this is a timely re do. The rooftop bar has fantastic views... More

Terrible experience at the Ink 48 Rooftop bar: Totally overpriced, pre-pre-prepared drinks in plastic glasses on totally worn out plastic sofas. I ordered a non-alcoholic mojito and got one with rotten mint. There was not one still green mint leaf in the whole glass. It looked absolutely disgusting. When I asked the waitress about it, she told me the mint... More

I visited Ink48 for a work trip and couldn't have been happier. My room was very tastefully decorated and had large windows overlooking the river. I LOVED that they actually opened which can be hard to find at some larger hotel companies. Kimpton is my favorite hotel brand and Ink48 perfectly exemplified why I love them. The restaurant and rooftop... More

I've stayed at Ink48 four or five times over the past few years and have had a great experience each time. The Hell's Kitchen location is perfect. It's a short walk to most of the theatres. You can walk along the Hudson past the intrepid down to Chelsea or pick up the High Line. Central Park is about a 20... More

Very trendy, upscale and clean hotel. Upon Arrival we were able to leave our vehicle with the valet; parking fee will be charged to your room. The valet attendants will let you know it can take up to 30 minutes to get your vehicle so allow yourself enough time if you need to use it. Front desk was extremely pleasant... 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.
