    Like hotel, bit away from the action

    The good- chic boutique hotel,very clean , rooms are good size for nyc. The main negative is it is not really near any tourist spots or great food. Hells Kitxhen is a fine neighborhood but I wish we were more in the action. However I got a great deal at $100 a night so I can’t complain

    Amazing Wedding Venue NYC!

    As a Wedding and Event Planner, I have worked at hundreds of venues in the tri-state area. Ink 48 is by far the most underrated venue in the city!  Our venue flooded a week before the wedding and Andreas completely saved the day! Andreas offered us the penthouse and terrace at the most affordable price! The views are absolutely breathtaking! It epitomizes what a NYC rooftop should look like!  The week leading up to the event, Andreas (the Sales Director) was in constant communication with me to ensure we had everything we needed and all questions could be answered. Nick Ivezaj, GM and team accommodated our every need. 5 stars for hospitality! On the day of, our marble sweetheart table tops had a mishap and couldn't get to us - Joe the hotel engineer helped me come up with a creative solution to build a glass tabletop for the Bride and Groom. Talk about a superstar troubleshooter!  The entire team made our day smooth and unforgettable. When it comes to the top venues I trust for my clients in the city, Ink 48 definitely lands in the top 5! I cannot wait to throw my next event here!

    Wonderful stay!

    We finished off our trip to New York State with a night at the Kimpton Ink48 and I will admit to preferring it over the Intercontinental Times Square where we stayed a few days prior. The hotel is away from the hustle and bustle of Times Square but has very easy access to the Hudson River Park footpath. It overlooks the Intrepid Sea and Air museum. With a room on a high floor overlooking the river, you can have great views of the displayed aircraft. Check in was very friendly and efficient. We booked a Hudson Suite. Although not cheap it was very spacious with a separate bedroom and living area. The latter had a sofa bed but the two are open plan - there is no divider between them. With floor to ceiling windows the view across the river is panoramic. The suite also had a spacious bathroom with a separate shower and bathtub, and complimentary Atelier Bloem amenities. The hotel also has a great rooftop area with a bar. In the middle of summer this was packed with both residents and visitors. There are great views over the city from the top. Another highlight is the hotel’s restaurant, PRINT. The food was exceptional and service friendly and attentive. The staff were also very knowledgeable. Although not the most central hotel on Manhattan, I loved the location. It was a lot calmer than areas around Times Square and I loved the access to the Hudson River Park footpath which you can follow pretty much all the way down to Battery Park; a walk I thoroughly enjoyed! I would highly recommend the Kimpton Ink48 and will gladly return.

    Long weekend in New York_January 2020

    We recently visited New York in January 2020 for a 5 night stay and what an amazing trip it was. We considered lots of hotels before booking the Ink48 in Hell's Kitchen area of Manhattan. The hotel was in a great location if you want to be just on the outskirts on the hustle and bustle of Times Square, which is only a 20 minute walk away. The hotel is modern, clean and tidy. The staff are great and the general manager was extremely helpful and accommodating with our anniversay weekend, providing a few treats in the room and allowing us a late check out. We highly recommend the Ink48 hotel.

    Very nice hotel

    Clean and spacious rooms for a reasonable price. Great location. Very nice and helpful staff. We left something in the room and they responded immediately to my inquiry and sent me the item right away. Cool bar on top of the hotel with gorgeous views on Manhattan.
