The Ink 48 is one of the best Kimpton's that I've stayed at. That being said, there are a few little trouble spots to look out for... The location of the hotel is a bit of a hike to Times Square and other "sites," and even to the subway. Although, it is in Hell's Kitchen with lots of little markets, bars and cafes to visit. On the 48th St. side is a large "event space (bar)" that lets out around 2:30AM, and the hotel gets to be quite noisy then. My room was not on the 48th St. side, but I was still awakened by the noise. This is unfortunate, as the rest of the experience was generally good. The staff ranges from very friendly, to robot-like efficient, and even a bit cold. The newly remodeled rooms are large and comfortable with a big bathroom and plenty of storage and hot water, but could be better lit. The shining spot here is the Print restaurant. 5 stars for the food and 4 for the service and price! The roof-top bar is also a nice spot with great views, but the staff there is a bit hipster-cold. Note: no kids allowed. You cannot charge anything to the room from the roof-top bar, which is very odd, as you can charge to the room at the Print restaurant. Both say that "they are not part of the hotel," but have different rules...very inconvenient. Of course there is the Kimpton wine reception from 5PM to 6PM, in a spot just off of the main lobby. A nice touch. All-in-all, I still liked this hotel and would recommend it, just as long as you are aware of what you are getting into. Collapse

My boyfriend and I booked this hotel through Expedia in August 2016, travelling in November 2016. We booked 6 nights and was very happy with all of the amazing reviews. When we arrived at our hotel, we were not disappointed! We were greeted outside the lobby where we were helped with our bags and took to the check in desk. The guy behind the desk gave us tonnes of information and recommendations on where to go and what to do while we were here which i found was very helpful and what more hotels should strive to do. The hotel is a 2 minute walk to the pier and over the road from the Intrepid, air, sea and space museum! Also about a 10 minute walk from Times Square which is one of the main places to catch The Big Bus Tour which takes you all around New York! Our room on the 6th floor was very spacious and exceeded my expectations considering the price that we paid. The high ceilings and the massive window to fill the gap made our stay that much more special, seeing the river on the right and all of the lit up buildings on the left was a great sight to go to sleep to and wake up to in the morning. The room was spotless, i couldn't find anything to critique on the cleanliness of the hotel. Every day we would return to the hotel and our room would be made up! We went for breakfast twice and dinner once during our stay and i couldn't recommend enough! Staff had a sense of humour when my boyfriend ordered 50% of the menu and were professional and efficient when it came to service. We didn't have to wait long for our meal considering how busy the restaurant was! The price, i thought, was just right for the amazing quality of the food! Overall, when we return to New York we will most definitely be retuning to this Hotel! Collapse

I stayed one night, Sunday, leaving Monday. First checking in the man working the desk was very pleasant and helped me check-in very quickly since I was illegally parked. After an afternoon around town, I returned to the most amazing room. The view is of the West Side HWY which I didn't mind because it made for a very quiet sleep. I had difficulty closing the blinds in my room and someone was sent up quickly to fix the blinds. He was helpful and very nice to speak with as the blind was fixed and the others were checked. My room was incredibly nice. The room was cozy and clean with a wonderful soaking tub. I enjoyed my room so much that I didn't leave until check out the next morning. Checking out was easy but the snag came in getting my car. In short I ended up waiting about 40minutes. Even the doorman at one point said you're still here? The hotel staff were all excellent about calling for my car but they can do so much when it's the garage taking it's time. It was a slow morning and there wasn't a flood of people trying to checkout so I'm not sure what the issue was for the car taking so long. It's the type of thing that can irritate but I had to remind myself that everything was wonderful so it's not worth getting worked up about. My trip out of town was delayed by an hour so if you are in a rush I would recommend finding a garage on your own. Collapse

Beautiful room with an amazing view. The staff was friendly and the hotel offered a lot of extras if you sign up to become a Karma Member. It is free and they give you a credit towards the mini bar and some other perks. The complimentary wine hour was a nice treat and Print was excellent for dinner. Collapse
Highly Recommended Hotel with Beautiful Views !!!

We stayed at this property for 1 Night during the labor day weekend. Our request for a room with a view on a higher floor was graciously accepted by the Gentleman checking us in. I must say that the view was even better than we imagined, we could have spent all day staring out of the window sipping on a beverage of our choice. But alas, the city and its energy beckoned and we started our evening by sipping some cocktails at the Press Lounge on the roof of our property. (Hotel guests get a separate VIP line) before proceeding outside for the rest of our night. Room was spotlessly clean and very modern, i think everything was a little cramped, especially the shower room but the big picture windows did not let us dwell on that fact for too long. Bed was comfortable and everything seemed clean. They even sent up a Keurig coffee machine with supplies to us on request. Location is a little off the beaten track, about a 15 min walk right into Times Square and the Subway, but being on an outer avenue you can probably find some street parking, (only if you know your way around New York Street Signs and Parking Regulations) and get quick and easy cab/uber rides to anywhere in the city. I think the prices are inline with what you would expect to pay in Midtown Manhattan, be prepared to pay and expect some sticker shock for everything else in the city as well, especially if its your first trip.
