Beautiful views

We upgraded to a higher floor with beautiful views and the views are truly stunning. Beds are comfortable. There was a nice big tiled shower. The door to the toilet is glass and allows for little privacy. The restaurant is wonderful, but drinks are $17 or $18. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The view from the roof is outstanding.

Great hotel

The room and all the ammenities of the hotel were great - however at 5:00 in the morning there were garbage trucks that woke me up and I believe that there is a FedEx garage across the street. They were making a ton of noise. It was impossible to sleep. From midnight to 5:00am -- I did sleep really well and you need to check out the rooftop bar and restaurant. Both really good.

NYC from Hells Kitchen

Although well off the beaten path, a lovely hotel with great style and comfort. Worth the walk to points east - and most everything is east of there. Staff was professional, attentive and friendly. Restaurant is excellent. The food was delicious and the service was great. I would go back. Lounge and bar were comfortable for casual meetings as was a small seating area near the elevator.

Ink48

While some may hate that the hotel was "out of the way" in a commercial area but we loved that it was away from the tourist Times Square and yet only 4 blocks away! We loved the local merchants rather than the tourist merchants. A wonderfully modern, quiet, attractive, neat and clean hotel with top service.

Cool Place!

Ink 48 was a really neat place to stay. I only stayed one night but would recommend it. The views were amazing. The staff were very nice and helpful. The prices were a little steep but it's Manhattan, no getting around that. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars was because of the noise in the morning outside of the hotel. I know the hotel can not do anything about that but it was not fun waking up to honking horns and construction. I would stay here again.

Nothing "spotty" about Ink 48

Everything about Ink 48 met or exceeded my expectations. As with most Kimpton properties, from the Happy Hour to the front desk everything was top-notch! The ONLY drawback was a very curt and pretentious woman who was serving the wine at happy hour. She was new, so I gave her a pass.

Since you're on 11th Avenue, it allows easy travel downtown mid-town or uptown! A quick walk brings you into Hells Kitchen for some great restaurants and shops!

Ink48 write this one down as Excellent

If first impressions set the stage than what a nice show . The front desk staff was friendly, accomodating and personable about our needs. We we're in NYC to checkout college's for my son and the staff seemed interested and offered some wonderful suggestions college information and ideas. Rooms are comfortable, simple decor while being warm and inviting. 1 block from the Intrepid , 3 blocks from Times Square. Quiet, peaceful accomodations

Great staff, drab location

This hotel is brand new, and some things are not yet finished. as a result there was still construction going on. That was not disruptive and the staff couldn't be nicer, accomodating and attentive. However, there was no restaurant and there are no real eateries in the area of any sort. The few cold items they have at room service are really a joke and not worth the money or wait. the hotel is surrounded by car dealerships; not the most exciting area for a visitor, nor the most comforting to walk through at night as it's rather desolate. Given the lack of amenities, I think the hotel is a bit overpriced.
