Would def. stay at Ink48 if visiting NYC in the future. Location was great (hells kitchen area), far enough outside of the times square atmosphere but within walking distance to visit and 2 blocks from the water if you like to jog or bike ride. Walked back to hotel a few times late at night from times square and a show on Broadway and never felt uncomfortable walking through the area the mile or so walk back to the hotel.
Outdoor roof top bar was incredible & had amazing views of city, although beer options are very limited if that is your preference. Entrance lines to access rooftop bar are out the door of the hotel and down the block some nights but no wait for entry if you are a guest at the hotel which is really nice. Amenities were great, (including free use of umbrella in your hotel closet and/or bicycle in the lobby area at no charge if wanted), room was very comfortable & had space for a couch. Would recommend upper floor if you wish to have some view of city from room. Also had a spa on site although you will pay the hefty NYC prices for services. Having anything you may have forgotten accessible just by asking was wonderful from bathroom to cellphone cord charger amenities.
The friendliness of the staff were all great. Hotel desk staff at check-in were very welcoming & offered some great suggestions for places in the area that we were interested in. Also, informed us ahead of time about access to roof top bar, if we wished to use it we would not be able to have access 1 of our nights at the hotel which helped considerably in our plans for going up there. Don't forget to join Ink48's free rewards club for a few extra perks prior to check-in. Would def. go back again !!
