“THE RIGHT PLACE!”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

I booked this hotel as it was offered as a sponsor to our trade show Art Expo at Pier 94. I also picked it because it was the closest to the show and said it had a great view of the NY Skyline. It was AMAZING - the place is spectacular, the view from the rooftop was breathtaking and I had the same view from my room #1507. Thank you Will for that! The decor is well done, the room was so quiet, the bed was "sleep in late" comfortable, and the food was delicious. Top Chef! The staff was super friendly and ever helpful.

Room Tip: Skyline view or Hudson River view...both spectacular!

Hey Michael J,

Thank you so much for the kind words about the hotel. Seems like your really got to experience all that the hotel has to offer, and being on the 15th floor is just great. So glad that Will (one of our best) was able to make that happen for you.

Hope to see you again at Ink48 again sometime soon!

Best,

Will

This hotel is superb! Well appointed, comfortable rooms, great location, and, best of all, service is 5 star. The staff is truly welcoming and attentive to all your needs. The courtesy and genuine consideration of the staff dwarfs that of some of the more expensive hotels (I've been to several, Parker Meridien, Tribecca Grand, Mandarin, Four Seasons) - the staff at ink48 really puts these pricier places to shame on that front. The rooms are spacious and have great amenities. Bathrooms are large with a spa feel. Rooms are quiet. TV channels are plentiful and mini-bar is well stocked with great options. Umbrellas were much appreciated given it rained while we were there. What haven't they though of? The overall vibe is hip and cool, but modern and sophisticated at the same time. Everyone from the front desk individuals to the Managers are super responsive and genuinely want to ensure your stay is nothing but perfection. And that is what will keep me coming back time and again.

I travelled with a girlfriend over St. Patrick's Day weekend to New York and stayed 3 nights at Ink48. we arrived at the hotel at 11am and the front desk was really friendly and upgraded our room so we could get into a room immediately! We were really impressed. The room was lovely, much larger than your standard "New York" hotel rooms were you feel like you're in a tissue box. The ceilings in the hotel rooms are soaring, loft style so you don't feel cramped at all. The "happy hour" in the lobby is a really nice touch, and since it was St Patricks day there were additional treats to suit the festivities; absolutely loved the fruit infused water in the lobby! I would definitely recommend visiting the rooftop bar, best view of the city! This hotel is away from the really touristy places in the cities which is really nice so your not elbow to elbow when walking down the street. The subway is a bit of a walk from the hotel (probably 10 mins) but it's New York so bring your walking shoes!

Every once in awhile you come across a place that causes a dilemma. Do I write the raving review and let everyone else know how wonderful this place is and risk it becoming too popular and expensive or do I keep it a "secret"? Well, my experience this weekend is well worth that risk. I was lucky enough to be a guest of my friend who was staying at this hotel. It was her first time staying here as she made the reservation after doing some research online. We are long-time friends and she is a world traveler and I am not as much but when I travel, I am a hotel snob. From the moment we walked into the hotel, we were pleased. The check in was easy and the staff was friendly. They upgraded us to a bigger room on a higher floor. The view was breathtaking and the room just lovely. We rested a bit and headed out to have some wine and appetizers, stroll a bit, have dinner and then head to the theater. As we began our journey, we stopped at the front desk again to get some wine bar/tapas suggestions from the front desk. All I can say is that you seldom come across someone so knowledgeable, personable and happy to do their job as was Stephen ~ The Hells Kitchen Expert~ He made several recommendations for wine bars, neighborhood bars, restaurants printed off suggestions at the touch of his finger. He asked us to please stop by when we returned to let him know how our evening went. He shared his experience of seeing the Broadway show we were going to see and even gave us some background on that. When we returned from the theater late that evening we were momentarily concerned when we saw the long line outside the hotel. It was a Saturday night and there is a roof-top bar. We went into the hotel and after letting Stephen know that he was spot on with ALL his recommendations we were taken up a separate elevator to our floor. We did go and peek at the rooftop bar, which looked great with spectacular views. When we finally got back to our room after a great evening we had the pleasant surprise of a bottle of wine and some snacks with a note from Stephen, which just made the evening absolutely perfect. My friend said several times during our overnight stay, "I hope I read the price for this correctly". Stephen went out of his way to make our girls weekend spectacular. What a find!! We will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher level floor to avoid street noise.

We enjoyed a Sunday staycation at Ink48. The rate was fantastic and included a bottle of win and snacks from the chef. Thanks to Chris at the Front Desk who made a special request to have our red wine be a bottle of Pinot Noir. I had to call down after several hours to inquire when the wine and snacks would be delivered and upon doing so they made sure it was sent up within 20 minutes. We were also treated to the traditional Inner Circle amenities. After attending the free wine hour we simply relaxed and enjoyed ourselves in the Hudson RIver Suite. I look forward to stays here... it's great to unwind with Kimpton.

Room Tip: The higher the better to limit street noise on the west side

I travel a lot for business ......and I have to say , Ink48 was amazing ! I stayed at the hotel only for a few days during my conference at Javits Center ....which is a short walking distance from hotel. I can't really pick on anything bad of this hotel I can only say this hotel gets 5 plus stars in my review :))))....there were few minor issues which were resolved immediately .....which was very surprising to me from a NYC hotels ....Staff is very very pleasant and helpful, condition of the hotel is very good as well as its very cool design , size of rooms is pretty nice and big as well as maintained very well !!!!!!!!!!

Anyone traveling to NYC book a room at this fantastic hotel without any hesitation and you will enjoy your stay !!!!!!!!
