We couldn't have wished for a better hotel while visiting NY for the first time. The rooms (we where given the option to move to a better room after a couple of days) where amazing! Everything is clean, modern and stylish. We loved the spaciousness and the view. The view is so amazing! The hotel also has a famous roof terrace which is featured in a couple tv shows. And once you step foot on it you'll know why! Again super stylish with great seating and a small water divider, but the view is truly astounding. Don't think about going late at night on the weekends though, the roof will be full in no time. Also, it was too expensive for our taste. The employees in the hotel are all super friendly but one really stood out. Stephen went above and beyond to make our stay the very best it could be. He printed out lists with handy points of interest and helped us pick out sights. Never shying away from a nice chat. The hotel is about a 10 to 15 min walk from time square. We didn't find this inconvenient at all. It was very quite at night and the 15 min walk didn't bother us at all. Hell's kitchen is a great neighborhood with adorable little shops and restaurants. Around the hotel itself are several car dealerships. Nothing pretty on ground level but seeing as they are all low buildings you get a great view on almost every level. Lastly the hotel is also close to the hudson. Only a 5 min walk from the intrepid, 15 min from the High Line, 5 min from the Daily show studio. We are going again this year and we didn't hesitate a second to book another stay in the Ink48! Final tip: register on the Krimpton website as a free member to get free WiFi Collapse

I have a few pet peeves when I travel: 1. Crappy internet (for 2017, that means less than 6MBs) 2. TVs with no interactive guide 3. Noisy bathrooms 4. Dirt 5. Bad areas of town 6. Outside noise 7. Adjoining doors with occupied rooms 8. Crappy HVAC (especially noisy ones that turn on and off all night) 9. Inattentive staff (especially in the bar/restaurant) 10. Poor breakfast/happy hour offerings (if offered). So... with that, how is Ink48? Fantastic. My tip, don't take rooms on the North side. There is a noisy night club that will distract your sleep. Ask for a room facing Times Square and floor 14 (it is high enough to minimize the sirens and low enough not to catch their roof top lounge noise). The place is clean (overpriced... but, hey, NYC..so... live with it), friendly service, and close enough to where you want to go. Times Square is a 20 minute walk. The shopping district about 30+ (but interesting to walk). Another tip. Sign up for the loyalty program and there is not fee for Internet. Nice place. I have been here 3 times. I have enjoyed each stay (except when over the night club). Cost is reasonable too (for NYC). Collapse
Solid Kimpton style away from the hustle

A little context of my travel profile should give you a good idea of expectations fueling this review: I am a business traveler who averages a minimum of 2 nights a week on the road. I stay predominantly on the east coast, a lot of time in New York specifically. I have absurd status/points on Marriott (Platinum) and Kimpton (Inner Circle) rewards programs. With that context, I present candid and practical expectations of a visited property juxtaposed with very little tolerance for quality deviations, based on a significant amount of experience with travel. I know how the "play book" is written for these brands, and I expect that they are highly trained and well-versed in their hospitality. On to my review. Ink 48 Location: out of the way a bit, which could be a positive or negative dependent on the type of patron you are. My family is all New York, so I tend to prefer convenience to seclusion and try to avoid the typical tourism spots. Thus, my go-to is the sister Kimpton property, Hotel Eventi, which is likely one of the most convenient locations in Manhattan to do business. The Ink 48 property would be fantastic if you're shopping for a car, as it is surrounded by dealerships. Being on 11th Avenue, it is close to the water - thus, you're good if you want to see the Intrepid or take a ferry (a short walk to 39th street). If you value trains (my preferred mode of travel), you've got a 10-15 minute walk to the nearest stop. If you're fond of taxis, Ubers, etc. then this will be fine for you. Nearby amenities: once again, you're walking for most things. High quality coffee and a stellar bakery is available on 47th between 10th and 11th, so you can get serious caffeine and some carbs to load up on your day - from there, you'll enjoy a long street decorated with classic residential architecture of a time passed in Manhattan. Renovations are rampant in the area, a sign of gentrification which will soon surround this property with much more desirable real estate and thus the more trendy amenities that will come with it. Hells Kitchen provides an eclectic mix of fine dining options, so if you are a foodie you can get your fill of eat and drink within 15 minutes walk of the property. It's also a 15 minute walk to the touristy part of town with theaters and Times Square. Property observations: The lobby is beautiful; appointed with a mix of materials and a style that is fashionable, just as I'd expect of a Kimpton property. Seating is a mix of couches and some large "cubbies" which are adorned in a rich red fabric. The room I'm staying in is beautifully constructed of high-end materials. The bathroom is deconstructed and basically adorns the room - only the toilet and shower get doors. Sinks are along the wall as you walk in. There is a small cart which holds two towels that sits under the sinks, nowhere near the shower that only has a hook outside for used towels. Contrarily, the hand towels are on a small hanging rack behind the shower, nowhere near the sinks that they would appropriate for. The tub, which is a beautiful piece large enough for two thinner people, is in the middle of the room next to the bed - perfect for late night romantic encounters or wine-accompanied soaks, but not something I would use [that's 48 square feet of wasted space for me]. The bed is comfortable and faces a flat screen on the opposite wall, and at the end of the room is a long couch, round glass 36" table and chair. It isn't a room organized for a 40-something business traveler - I'd describe it more as a chic deconstructed tenement housing architecture juxtaposed with a 20-something's ultimate pad to take a Tinder date. If you like unique style and don't need a space optimized for practical matters like mine, this is the place for you. If you need good lighting and reading glasses for work on your travel, this won't work out very well. The staff at this property is polite, but not terribly friendly or outgoing. I've walked in and out many times over two nights/three days, and only one bellman ever said hi or made eye contact with me unless I specifically stopped to check in or out. It isn't what I am accustomed to when I compare to Hotel Eventi in which I am recognized on the street and multiple times in the lobby before I can get into an elevator. Contextually, this place does not fit well with my profile of travel - and thus, I'll likely never book here again. Both check-in and check-out were delays, which I can understand happen on occasion. They didn't have a room available for me on check-in, which left me stranded in the lobby between meetings. The system was down on check-out which wasn't a big deal, but just another nuisance on a short stay. If I were on vacation, it would be different - however, the lack of priority for my time combined with difficult location for my logistics meant tangible inconveniences for my work days. So, there you have it. A great place to go, so long as you have nowhere to go on a schedule. For a lot of people, I can easily see this as a destination which provides the right mix of amenities for their needs. For me, if Hotel Eventi isn't available I will not be choosing this as my alternate. Collapse

What a great weekend. Hotel was so easy to get to from NJ, location to get to everything is good without horrendous traffic. Valet right their to take the car and our luggage. Check in was flawless - Thanks to Daniel! It was a birthday weekend, which I told the hotel about earlier. Daniel asked who the birthday boy was and made sure to wish him happy birthday. The room was a Corner room with views of the river and the city, we stepped out with our doggie and when we came back there was a bottle of wine with happy birthday wishes. We were only going to stay 1 night but decided that we were going to stay 2 without any issue from the hotel. I can't say enough good things about this hotel and the staff. From the valet, to the front desk to the cleaning staff...top notch! Kimpton hotels are the way to go every time, thanks. Collapse

This was a great stay. I checked in & let the front desk know that I was there for a surprise promotion party for my bf & the gentleman was nice enough to give us a corner room facing the front of the hotel & the view was amazing . The hotel room was very nice, a little small but perfect for the one night we stayed. It was very modern & clean. We went up to the rooftop & it was pretty packed as it was raining outside but the view was wonderful. They had complimentary wine hour from 5-6pm I believe which we weren't able to attend but that was very nice to know. Maybe next time we stay we can take advantage of the wine. Overall I thought it was a great stay & not far from Times Square at all, walking distance. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone of my family & friends. Collapse
