“Great staff and service, spectacular view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

This is my second stay at Ink and my husband's first. You just cannot beat the view of Midtown or the service at this Kimpton property. Stephen at the front desk was incredibly helpful, even helping us switch from a Hudson Suite to a room with a midtown view when we decided we'd like to switch. He also gave us great restaurant recommendations. Everyone at Ink was so helpful, friendly, and pleasant. Our room was lovely and clean. Very comfy beds. We're going back in December and can't wait!

Room Tip: Although the Hudson views are spectacular, the city views are a great NYC experience.

Green Features: The fact that Kimptons are all environmentally friendly definitely plays a role in our decision to stay at their hotels.

Second trip to NY and Ink48. Hudson River suites are wonderful - great views, lots of room, very clean. Stephen made our stay special - thank you! I highly recommend staying at this hotel. Rooftop bar also has a great view, though drinks are expensive.

Room Tip: Hudson River suites are very much worth the extra cost.

Wonderful experience. Everyone is friendly and helpful and the room is modern, with perfect functionality (make sure you can adjust the IHome 5 am alert from the previous visitor!!) The rooftop bar restaurant recently featured in The Black List is without doubt one of the best in New York. Breathtaking views of the city and the perfect place for a nightcap. Just off the main buzz but only a five minute walk to Restaurant Row and other cool places including a small but friendly local cafe BiscoLatte on 667 Tenth Avenue that has dozens of biscotti choices and a mean coffee machine.

Great place for a treat or a business trip.

Green Features: Very socially aware, and actively encourage dogs to stay. Doesn't detract from the ambience if you are not "Doggy" friendly. It actually enhances the environment and all owners and dogs that I have seen are very aware of their responsibilities.

Great staff, accommodations...perfect location! Totally love Ink 48...wouldn't stay anywhere else in Ny. The wedding reception on the rooftop was amazing...incredible views, great food, exceptional service. Our room was fabulous...great views of the city lights...an easy walk to 9th. For great restaurants and close to c. Park and times Sq.

The title says it all. If you are looking for the best place to stay in NYC stay at Ink48. Their service starts from the curb When you arrive and ended at the the curb the day we left. The non stop service form the entire staff and from Will at the front desk made this trip better then I could have imagined. The Hudson River suite was to die for the view and space was worth every penny.

Staying at ink48 made this trip to comic con NY one of the best trip for my partner and I it was in walking distance to the javic center for him, the dog parks and river for our dog and other things for me to do.

Room Tip: Spend the money and get the Hudson River Suite. The view is worth it

We selected Ink48 for a 9 day NY stay after viewing many NY hotel reviews on Trip Advisor. Being summer we were looking for a modern clean hotel preferably with a rooftop bar, large rooms and close proximity to the city. Ink48 (A Kimpton hotel) delivered all of the above. The rooftop bar (not cheap) has fantastic views across to the city skyline which is awesome at night. Our room was spotlessly clean and large, allowing us to spread out the growing amount of shopping bags! Room service was excellent...we left a $2 tip every day and $5 on our last day. Proximity to local restaurants and subway was only 2 blocks away and we enjoyed walking the distance through various NY streets to gain an insight of everyday NY living. This is a great hotel...a bit pricy, but that’s NY....look for special discounts if available.

Room Tip: Select a higher floor away from road noise

A nice modern hotel with a trendy vibe is hard to find in midtown at anything close to reasonable price. On these factors ink48 is a winner. The rooftop bar is fabulous and the rooms are modern, many with good city views. A great hotel for someone looking for something different. That said, Hell's Kitchen is still an up and coming area and has its flaw backs. It's a cab ride away from everything.... But if you can live with that you'll like this place!
