We stayed at Ink 48 back in February 2011 and had a fantastic time there. The hotel was superb and the service was fantastic as we always expect when staying at a Kimpton hotel (this is our 5th stay with the group.)
This was our 4th visit to NYC and were were planning to stay at INK48 or the Eventi and INK48 provided the best deal and we are happy it did, it really didn't disappoint. The room was stylish, clean, very comfortable bed/pillows and the staff were great.
We stayed in a city view room and as you can see from the picture I have included with the review the view from our room was suburb.
It's the little touches I like though, tea and coffee available in the lobby each morning is great but the option of a takeaway cup to get your coffee fix on the move is a simple but nice one. The wine hour is always good and as always the staff were not afraid to keep topping you up.
When making the booking I obviously said it was for my birthday and when we got to the room we were greeted to a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine and some cakes, very unexpected and just what we needed after a shocking drive in from the airport.
The one minor negative is it is a decent walk to get into the middle of downtown, maybe 20 minutes or so but personally when I'm in NYC i expect to walk lots so it didn't bother me at all but I know some people are less enthusiastic about walking. I wouldn't let it put you off though.
Oh if you are staying here and fancy breakfast check out the Pom Pom Diner, 610 11th Ave, the price was right and the food fantastic. Great way to start your day and only two minutes walk from the hotel.
