Awesome!

Came here for a one night stay with some friends. It was perfect! I forgot basically all of my toiletries (of course) and they provided me with some for free!

Amazing Room in NYC

A hidden gem in the city. I used to live in NYC but I would stay at the Kimpton anytime...this place is fabulous in terms of the rooms and the amenities and location. Staff could be a little quicker to help and the room service was the least flexible I've seen in awhile. That said, fabulous and would highly recommend it to anyone!

Great location

I decided to stay at the INK48 because of it's location. It was walking distance to Times Square and Broadway (at least for me) but more important was that it was only a block away from the NY Port terminal. The room was small but very nice. The hotel was very clean and the staff were friendly. I would recommend it to anyone that is flying into NY for a cruise. Just hop on the jitney from the airport and they drop you off right at the door.

Birthday perfection!

I am a frequent visitor to NYC and this was, without question, the best visit I have had in years and I owe a lot of this wonderful experience to the folks at ink48 and the folks at Kimpton Hotels. Shannon Spillett, the the City Director of Marketing, assisted me with my visit and was brilliant. Amazing staff, timeliness to requests, assistance for various reasons, etc ... everything was wonderful. I am going to be staying with Kimpton every time I come to NYC from this point forward.
