While away from the major noise and hustle of Times Square and surrounding streets this hotel is within 5-10 minutes walking distance. If you thought that would leave you without a view of high rise midtwon you would be wrong. I would estimate 1/3 of the hotel rooms to be looking east into central midtwon and with planning laws restricting building to 5 blocks looking east (for the next 4 blocks) you can get spectacular, views for not unreasonable prices at this hotel.
One of the major plus points and possible down points of this hotel is the roof top terrace which offers a simply stunning view of Manhattan. Its Achilles heel is that it is so upmarket and exclusive that it is intimating for the average hotel guest to enter. Althugh we enjoyed the terrace - it is definitely a plAce to put on some smart clothes and be prepared to pay $50 for a couple of drinks and small nibbles.
The rooms themselves are chic and fresh and I would much rather stay in Ink48 than pay the same price for a more well known hotel with more dated furnishing and much smaller rooms.
The service at the hotel was professional but no overly friendly - which is fine for what we needed. Restaurant road is also within 5 minutes, which was very useful.
I Would recommend this hotel for it's convenient location and value for money.
