When I go to the NY auto show, there is no better place to stay. Upscale and hip, it is a refreshing change for my usual routine.

Business trip

The hotel was great, but for the price, wifi should have been free. The room was very clean and the hotel was in a great area. The only complaint I have was that for a weekend stay, be prepared to hear the night club that is across the street all night. I would stay again, maybe the back side of the hotel would be better.

Beautiful Hotel

The staff at the hotel was very kind and courteous. They made me feel welcome. The Press Room bar is amazing with the view. While I did like the speed of the Wifi, however, I didn't think we should have to pay an extra charge for Wifi. I paid for it because I needed to use it, but I think the charge is hefty. The robes in the hotel rooms are hideous (sorry, but they are ugly). The rooms are nice. Not too crazy about the location, but the overall the service was good. Yes, I would return.

Just OK

We stayed at Ink48 because our usual hotel was sold out. The rooms were nice-sized for NYC and pretty comfortable (and one of the two rooms we got had a great view the other one looked onto a blank wall) but that's about it. When we checked in (after 4:00 pm), we were told one of our rooms was not ready. When I told the somewhat surly person at the reception that we needed to change and be on our way to an appointment in the next 30 minutes so we really needed access to the rooms right away, he grudgingly came up with a room for us. He barely looked at me and barely spoke to me. No one offered to help us with our luggage. On the way up to the room, the elevator stopped on EVERY floor, where a member of the staff tried to get on with either a huge cleaning cart or luggage cart or catering cart, and then, seeing that there was no room, just told us to go on. This was the case on literally every trip up and down in the elevator throughout the weekend. The bathroom was small and the shower was so tiny that one bumped into the walls when trying to turn around in it. The mirror in my bathroom was broken. The AC was incredibly loud as it turned on and off, waking us up repeatedly during the night. In order to get free internet, you had to sign up for their affinity program - not a big deal, but for the prices they charge, internet should not be a hassle. When we checked out, a different surly person at the reception desk objected when I asked for a print out of the bill. Finally, the location is less then ideal -- there is nothing around other than gas stations and car dealers. The stay was fine, but nothing more, and I would not stay there again. For the price, one can do better.

Okay hotel...

I love Kimpton hotels, and try to stay in them whenever I travel. This one was not my favorite. The location wasn't my fave spot in NYC...I'd try a different one next time.

Great NY Hotel

The room was so spacious, and especially for a NYC hotel. It was a very comfortable stay. Only about 4 blocks from Times Square.

Couple city break

The hotel was very nice, clean and well kept. The room was spacious and very comfortable, upon arrival we were given an upgraded room on a higher floor, which was a nice surprise. The staff were all very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The only downside to this hotel was that it was a little out of the way. It was a 20 minute walk to Times Square and 15 minute to the nearest subway station. Overall we had an amazing trip.

Upon arriving we were given a room that was very smoky from a previous guest. The reservationist was kind enough to move us to another room. She had sent the Bellman up to move our luggage and take us to the new room, unfortunately the bellman had no manners. He directed us to the elevator and watched my daughter and I carry the luggage down a flight of stairs. He never offered to help us. On the other hand, The Doorman and Concierge were Excellent!
