I’m a huge fan of Kimpton hotels because I love traveling with my dog, and I love staying in nice hotels. I also love that they don’t charge an amenity/resort fee or pet fee like most luxury hotels in NYC. You get a good rate and they deliver way more than what you pay for (wine hour, Kimpton reward perks: free wifi and raid the bar, promotions link on their website for good deals). I’ve stayed in all Kimpton hotels in NYC, but this was my first time staying at Ink48. I was blown away! Because I had a less-than-desirable stay at the last Kimpton (they made it right, though), I decided to try Ink48. I’d never stayed in Hell’s Kitchen and wasn’t sure I’d be enchanted by the neighborhood, so I’d always stayed in other Kimptons. I was totally wrong! Hospitality: The manager, Olimpia, was kind enough to accommodate me with a few requests (high floor, room with a view, and a room that’s renovated). Before we arrived on 11/5, Gwian at the front desk assured me that our requests would be met, as we were checking in early in the day. He was so sweet in acommodating us. Lisa, the bartender at the manager’s wine/happy hour, was such a sweetheart. Her welcoming personality made us feel right at home. Hotel: The hotel is in an awesome location in Hell’s Kitchen, right on the Hudson, sweeping views to-die-for. The lobby is gorgeous, modern, tea/organic coffee offered in the A.M., friendly doorman, easy access to dog park (5 minute walk), self-parking 15 minutes away, or you can valet. Restaurants and entertainment in Hell’s Kitchen all within a 2 minute walk. Easy access for Lyft to shuffle you around if you don’t want to walk. What a convenient location! I wish I’d known all these years - this is my absolute favorite hotel and location in all of my years of traveling from DC to NY. It has everything and more, including Print restaurant, which was just excellent (food, service, and hospitality). Room: We had a large, gorgeous suite. I’ve stayed in some amazing suites at different Kimpton hotels all over the U.S. When I walked in, I was blown away. The room was immaculate. The view stopped me in my tracks. The modern design was dreamy. Speaking of dreamy: the bed and pillows were so comfortable that I tracked down the manufacturer of the mattress and bedding on Kimpton’s website and was able to place an order to duplicate everything, down to the Frette bedding and down pillows. It’s expensive, but when you calculate how many hours you sleep, and how important excellent/comfortable sleep is, it ends up being pennies per night for a luxious bed. So worth it. Kimpton members get a $15 free raid-the-bar credit. They have everything! Our kids came with us on this trip and they sent up popcorn, juice packs, and a hand-written note welcoming us. So nice! I love the privacy button — no more “do not disturb” hanging things on the doorknob. Just press a button and a red light outside the door tells housekeeping you’re sleeping in. Turn-down service in the evening was excellent. This was the best hotel experience I’ve ever had. Worth every penny (oh! We used out Kimpton member number, logged in, and followed the promotion link. We saved $200 off the non-promotional rate in total, plus they gave us a $50 credit to Print restaurant downstairs. We always book through the website to hunt down the promotional rates, and we take advantage of our Kimpton rewards. Thank you Ink48, all the staff that welcomed us, and all the hard work you do behind the scenes to offer such an amazing hotel experience. I can’t wait to return! Collapse

We visit New York from Canada several times a year, mostly for the opera and theatre. We made the switch from a hotel that was closer to Lincoln Centre a few years ago when we discovered a new Kimpton had opened. Being an extra few blocks away from the opera house is more than made up for by the staff at Ink 48 who make the Hotel feel more like a home than a hotel. Kimpton Hotels set the bar high for service, but the staff at Ink 48 are the reason it has become my favourite hotel in the world. Every time we check in, it’s the same friendly faces greeting us - front desk, bellmen, restaurant staff as well as housekeeping. The staff greet us with things like, “Nice to see you again”, “How are things up in Canada?”, “How long are you with us this time?” We feel more like old friends than just customers. Concierge, Stephen Field, has been particularly attentive and an indispensable resource for us in making plans during our stay. His restaurant and theatre advice is always spot-on. He clearly loves what he does, and it’s the places where he eats and the shows that he sees that he is recommending. I will leave additional aspects of the hotel for other guests to describe, but suffice it to say we never have any complaints. While the hotel exceeds our expectations in every way, it’s the people who work at Ink 48 that keep us coming back. Collapse

We loved staying at the Kimpton Ink 185 Hotel in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood. The staff is great and the rooms are wonderful-we stayed at Times Square last time and decided to try a different neighborhood. This is a very up and coming area with lots of quercky restaurants nearby and tons of interesting stores with people galore walking every which way. Our room was very spacious with a bathtub and free standing shower and of course flat screen T.V. They have a wine hour for their guests near dinner. We absolute love Kimpton Hotels as they are boutiques and not huge monsters. Nice staff as I said before and very clean!! I am very fussy where I stay and becoming a hotel snob. Maybe it might cost a little more but I want to be comfortable and get a good night sleep. Bed was very comfortable. We loved this Hotel!! Collapse

I'm a discerning traveler with near bi-monthly visits to New York and have stayed in every range of hotel. History: I've stayed at this property in Oct 2016 and May 2017 and another Kimpton property The Eventi in New York City several times to extremely pleasant stays, which leads me to this rare 5-star recommendation. Let there be White: the rooms are spacious and tremendously bright, with white platform beds and crisp modern furniture. I was upgraded by their always gracious staff with a sweeping view of the north side of the city and the Hudson River, with a separate bench banquet for window gazing. Hip Bar & Happy Hour: there's always a complimentary wine hour with light snacks provided at the Kimpton properties which is lovely, but the true happiness here is on the happening rooftop bar, The Press Lounge, which is worth visiting for the sunset, the skyline and a quick cocktail if not the food (the menu is not extensive). Quiet Please: I always request a quiet room because I only crash for a few hours and for those precious hours I need to sleep, but my room upgrade had me placed over 11th Avenue so there was middle-of-the-night truck noise--my only complaint. But how can you truly complain, really, over such a spacious and kind gesture? So I'm not complaining! Insider's Tip: If you book directly through Kimpton, they have their own rewards program called Karma Rewards (with little bonuses like free wifi and a $10 mini bar credit to use as you please): I'm a member so I get the emails. If you book through another entity but are still in their Rewards program, they kindly still honor the free wifi which is a plus. Collapse
