I have waited until now to post a review, in the hope that the hotel would respond to three emails I’ve sent about a bill, that I have no idea what it relates to. No response. The complete lack of catering facilities impacted on our stay given we had booked last year, in the expectation of having breakfast on the roof and enjoying a meal in what was a reasonable restaurant. We were not warned in advance. Whilst tea and coffee was provided in the lobby, this was only Wednesday to Sunday. The local amenity tax was waived but far from compensates for the lack of services. One of the few redeeming features was the helpful security and front of house staff.

Came here for a conference and left pleasantly surprised! I was met at the front desk by Silas (very proffesional), who was able to get me checked-in early with no problem!. Jose was amazing and provided a list of stuff to do in the surrounding area. I will be back for sure, room was clean and comfortable could use a tad of TLC.

We really enjoyed staying at Ink 48. The staff was so attentive, pleasant, and helpful. We want to give special kudos to Silas, Ivan, and Renee. Our only disappointment was that the restaurant and bar were both closed for renovation during our stay, otherwise our review would be 5 stars!

This was a very mixed experience. Ink 48 was a reasonably good location but very noisy and dirty surrounding area. Prefer to live in Midtown area. Close to all amenities but prepare for lots of walking. Room was awful in terms of poor standard. There was no dust and bathroom spotless but it was shabby and in need of tlc. That was apparently an upgrade they gave us. I could not sleep in the bed it was surrounded by disgusting marks. Took sheets from linen cupboard and slept on couch instead. I am sure when Kimpton group owned this hotel it was lovely at one point. Would I use again not sure. Customer service on arrival was met with a lady who had obviously had a bad day. Not friendly. However on departure the male on reception was great even stored our cases for us until departure. He had excellent customer skills. Apologised for our experience of room.

I’ve had 2 stays within 2 weeks…Chris (concierge/security) has been amazing on so many regards. I would likely not recommend this hotel (ambassador level with Marriott)…but Chris is that employee that can “bring a customer over”. Hard worker, customer centric, compassionate and frankly “very kind” in the setting of NYC. I would recommend this hotel solely because of Chris…everything else is average and adequate…but Chris has been exceptional. Thank you Ink 48 for raising the bar of my NYC experience…I’d steal him for my company any day!!!

It’s a clean hotel. Everything is very reasonable. Staffs are nice. Because of my believes, there were certain rooms I don’t really want to have, Ebony, the receptionist made arrangements for me to have another room. She acted patiently and professionally. The customer service in this hotel is worth 5 stars.

I am super, super sad to see this hotel go down the tubes. Ink 48 was always my "go to" hotel when I was in NY and I've advised countless friends to stay there. The rooms are lovely. The roof deck/lounge was amazing (now closed). Print restaurant was great and a good place to meet up with friends (also now closed). No room service. No food to be found at the hotel whatsoever. Almost no staff. Only beverages are the mini bar. When asked for a drinking glass or glass for mini bar beverage, was told the hotel only has plastic cups. (?!?) Feels like a hotel quickly going into free fall never to return. Such a bummer. And I can't get a copy of my bill. Have emailed several times, tried calling.....nothing....no answer...no response.... Again, clearly a hotel on life support.

Greetings sonya661, I completely understand your disappointment and frustration with your perceived decline of Ink 48. Your description highlights significant changes that have diminished the overall experience for guests, from the closure of key amenities like the roof deck/lounge and Print restaurant to the absence of room service and basic hospitality essentials. These are services we have been working diligently on resuming in the upcoming weeks. The lack of responsiveness from the hotel staff regarding your billing concerns is especially concerning and reflects poorly on their customer service standards. It's unacceptable for guests to be left in the dark and unable to obtain essential documents like their bill despite multiple attempts to reach out. I will share your feedback with the team for immediate follow up. Your loyalty towards Ink 48 speaks volumes, and I hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back in the near future to show you a truly perfect Ink 48 experience. If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to reach me directly at Andrew.Brady@Ink48.com.

We stayed for a night in the city and WOW just WOW! Firstly, upon arrival we were greeted and assisted with all of our bags before I could even look for help. Musa was right there to help me. He was kind, and assisted me to my room, and help me carry all of my things, because one of my bags had broken and I didn’t even have to ask. The hotel is beautiful! But when we arrived to the room, I was taken away by how clean it was! It was absolutely excellent. I can tell housekeeping really made an effort to make us feel at home and also provide a safe and clean environment these days it’s really hard to find a hotel that is spotless, but our room was absolutely spotless. The room was stylish and modern. Upon departure Dana had assisted us with checking out. She was so helpful. We were running late and she was so kind and understanding. I really wish that there were more people like Dana in hospitality. Me and my boyfriend both agreed that for New York City, we were blown away by the service, especially from Dana and Musa. They helped us have a great stay! 10/10 would recommend!
