Overall this hotel was great, and the view from my corner room was amazing! When it rained, the front desk ran out of umbrellas but told me I had one in my room, they think of everything. The value is outstanding. I was pricing out other hotels in New York, and this swanky hotel was CHEAPER than the Day's Inn... More

Ink48 is my go to hotel because of the Karma Rewards program, the great staff, and the large (for NYC) hotel rooms. The Karma Rewards program allows you to receive a $15 mini bar credit and free wifi every time you stay there. The rooms are nice, large and clean. The gym is small but very nice and well stocked....

Hell's Kitchen invokes visions of a run down, gloomy almost dangerous neighbourhood but, as this hotel demonstrates, that couldn't be further from the truth. A wonderful hotel with tremendous views of the city from the roof top bar and well placed to access all parts of the city, I am struggling to think why you would stay anywhere else? Far... More

We stayed at Ink48 after making a reservation on Hotwire, so the actual hotel was a surprise after we booked. We checked it out online and were looking forward to our stay. When we arrived, we were a bit disappointed. The room was fine, but kind of dark and not great. I went down to the desk and asked if... More

I love Kimpton Hotels, so when I was booking a room in NYC with my mom and daughter I knew this would be a treat! We splurged and booked a Hudson room with floor to ceiling views of the Hudson River and it was phenomenal! Don't worry, there are blackout curtains behind the sheer shades in the bedroom (but I...

I just spent five nights at the Ink48 Kimpton Hotel in Manhattan. It was excellent including the service from staff, the design and decor. It is at West 11th and 48th street which is a pretty easy walk to the theatre district but far enough away to avoid all of the tourist noise of 8th Ave. and Times Square. My... More

Close to the High Line, theaters, restaurants, subway lines, Hudson River Greenway - in the heart of the hip and trendy new West Side - lovely views, great service, clean and nicely-decorated rooms, great restaurant and rooftop bar. And free internet as a Kimpton Karma member! What's not to love?

I travel to Manhattan frequently but this was my first stay at ink48. My good friends recently moved from Chelsea to 42nd Street and 12th Avenue—the new frontier—and I experimented with booking a hotel near them instead of in much more centrally located Chelsea. Before I go further I want to compliment the front-desk staff. They gave me five-star consideration... More

I came to this hotel to write my way back into life. And so, with a skyline of New York, a writing desk, a mini bar, with short walks to the Hudson, in this old shell of a printing press, I found new life, and wrote the skeletal beginnings of a true tale of decadence and redemption, The Puerto Vallarta...

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.
