My 15 year old daughter's best friend moved to the east coast from LA, last summer and I cannot tell you how hard it was on both of them. For her spring break, I got an idea to surprise her and did it by telling her we were travelling to visit family in Toronto and had to change airports in NYC. Meanwhile, her friend's dad surprised his daughter during her spring break by telling her they were going to NYC for the night. We both "stole" our daughters phones so they couldn't communicate and ruin the surprise by telling each other they were in NYC. We pulled off the surprise at a Starbucks in Penn Station, then told them they had 4 days to spend together! It worked like a charm and I'm sure it will be a memory to last a lifetime, but it was SO touching for the girls to receive 2 bottles of orange soda in an ice-bucket, along with some Easter chocolate, and a handwritten note to enjoy the weekend! That doesn't happen at many hotels!
We didn't get a room with a view, which was a bit of a disappointment, but now I'm even more disappointed that we didn't take advantage of visiting the rooftop bar for a nightime view of the city :( Wish someone would have mentioned it when we checked in (I just saw everyone posting about how fabulous it is here on tripadvisor.) The room was nice and spacious, the beds comfortable and everything was really clean, which is important to me. Wine hour is always nice at the Kimpton hotels, and it we enjoyed the wine they served at ink48.
The location is a bit out of the way, if you aren't using taxis or have a car, as the nearest subway stop is about 6 blocks away, but definitely do-able, as long at it's not freezing or raining. Overall, I'd recommend ink48, and hopefully you're reading this before you go, and will not miss the rooftop bar views as we did. :(
