Stayed here a couple weeks ago. 15th room had a wonderful view of the river, comfortable bed, just far away enough from the bar up top to not notice any noise. Management even sent up a complimentary bottle of wine for our celebration, with a nice personalized card. Room service was prompt and good food in a pinch (of course there's better food in the city... also grocery stores open late a couple blocks away). The true star of the place is the rooftop bar, especially at night. You can cut the line as a guest, and the view is spectacular. Good, if a bit pricey, drinks and an eclectic talkative crowd. Could spend hours looking at the NYC skyline up there. Check out Icon/Central parking about two blocks away... way better deal than the valet if you're up for a brief walk.

We stayed at Ink48 for 3 nights. The stay was the usual Kimpton great quality. Efficient, courteous staff providing excellent customer service in a clean, upscale environment. We stayed in a Hudson Suite which has floor to ceiling windows which provided a spectacular view of the Intrepid and the Hudson River. The restaurant had a great breakfast menu which we tapped into each morning. The view from the rooftop lounge is just amazing! I like it better than the other rooftop lounges I have been to in NYC because it has the killer Hudson River view and a beautiful view of the NYC eastern skyline (as opposed to being buried among the skyscrapers and not being able to see much else).

Coincidentally, we had to attend a late-night event in midtown on Friday night so we asked the front desk agent to make us a reservation at Nios (the restaurant at The Muse - another Kimpton hotel). It was no surprise to us that Nios was great too. I'm a Kimpton fan!!

Room Tip: The Hudson Suites are spacious and have amazing views. We were on the 14th floor.

The friendliest staff that we have ever experienced in the US! Starting from the bellman to the front desk and cleanning staff.
Location is okay, rooms are large and the hotel built according to very modern standard.

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.

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.

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.
