Funky, midtown, well priced, easy to get around, walking distance to all of Mid-Town attractions and offices, taxi to Downtown direct on 11th Ave, Access to NJ through the Lincoln Tunnel.

The rooms in the hotel are big for NYC, the drinks prices are level with those found in all of NYC hotels, the staff are friendlier, and the roof top bar is excellent in summer (in winter, it's freeeeeezing).

Room Tip: If you're on a high floor, as to look East across Manhattan. You might even be high enough to s...

I am a retailer that specializes in exceptional customer service. It is a real pleasure when I discover a company that knows how to do the same. The staff was always friendly and stepped up to help at a moment's notice. My fridge did not work and I made a call to the desk and there was a new one before I finished unpacking.
The bar on the rooftop is one of the most spectacular views of the city. I am looking forward to my fall trip to New York to stay again. If only they could keep the snow away while I am there in January!

Ink 48 is a beautiful hotel with a warm, welcoming staff. The rooms are lovely, with super-comfy beds and a lot of space. The rooftop bar is amazing, both in terms of view and ambiance. The location is quiet yet convenient to our favorite restaurants and Times Square. This was our third stay and we will definitely be returning on our next NY trip. Jeff, the lead concierge, could not have been more accommodating and generous with amenities and personality. If you go to Ink 48, be sure to sign up for the Kimpton loyalty program; definitely worthwhile.

Flew in from Chicago for a girls weekend with high school bff. We had a great time! Ink48 was the perfect place to rest our heads in the wee hours. Jeffrey Behrens had champagne sent to our room to celebrate our 45tth birthdays and the staff couldn't have been more helpful with dining suggestions, car service etc. We are looking forward to another reunion in NYC at Ink48 this summer!

Wonderfully decorated rooms, with lots of space and so nicely appointed. Very hip design.
Extraordinarily accommodating staff with nice restaurant in house and a terrific bar on the top floor.
They love pets here as do so many of the other guests. Out dog gives this place a paws up.
Will definitely recommend to others and stay here again on our next trip to NY.

Room Tip: The suites are phenomenal. Also stayed once in a Superior Deluxe King which had so much more space t...
