"Hip hotel close to the cruise terminal"
My partner and I were looking for a cool place to end our vacation before heading back to Philly. We just spent a week on a cruise to Bermuda. This was a block away from the terminal, had a very friendly and helpful staff, and an awesome roof deck lounge. We very much enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning soon.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Stunning Hudson views from rooftop bar"
We were taking an evening dinner cruise, and booked this nearby hotel. A great place to explore Manhattan's revitalized west side.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is very clean but you can hear people outside the room. Sometimes, you can hear construction works or hornes from the street. Overall rate, this place is okay to stay. The customer service is not as great sa other Kimpton's Hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Brief but very pleasant stay. Had a little difficulty with the temperature control (direct blast of cold air when AC kicked on) but otherwise was pleased with the comfort and cleanliness of our room. Staff was friendly and accomodating. Location is convenient to our activities. If price remains competitive, will definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I liked the room and the bathroom alot. I left feeling it was way too expensive overall. The room was $369 drinks $60 plus 2 wines $25 and parking $65.....so $520 total. Way too much. Construction noise across street was maddening too. Breakfast was $24 per person on the menu so my wife and i walked 2 blocks to Market Diner and had a great ny breakfast […] for $18. There you go .... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful views to the Hudson river and city"

great place had a car and that was not the easiest valet set up for loading and unloadingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cant Wait To Go Back"
I absolutely loved this hotel! The location was perfect for what I wanted. Time Square area but not in the middle of it. It was beautiful in the lobby areas and the rooms and the service was fabulous. My husband told them it was my birthday so they sent up a bottle of champagne which was actually good. (Much better than the free wine at the wine reception […] yuck) My only complaint/suggestion is that I chose this hotel for two reasons 1) I love Kimpton Hotels and 2) I was excited to spend my birthday on the Rooftop. I booked for two nights and had my family and friends also book the two nights so there was 8 of us all together. At check in we were informed the rooftop was closed for Private functions for both the Fri and Sat night. Beyond disappointing. As it happens, last minute our friends and I decided to rebook for sunday night and we were able to spend the night drinking really expensive wine on the beyond amazing view on the rooftop! The view is the best I've seen on a hotel rooftop to date. So my tip is if the Rooftop of this hotel is your goal...call ahead to make sure it is open. Lastly, Mon morning we ate at Print rest inside the hotel and it was fabulous! Fresh French pressed coffee, my fave, and fabulous omelets served with a fresh spring salad and whole grain toast with homemade whipped butter and preserves. Really looking forward to going back!

"Not what I expected"
This was the worst kimpton I have ever stayed at! I can't even tell you how disspointing this place was besides dirty and tired, it was so uncomfortable in the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Bitter sweet experience"
They took three hours to accommodate me in a room, once they did the bathroom lights did not work. Nice place but bad service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Satisfied, I would recommend"
I am a fan of Kimpton hotels. Like the others that I have stayed at ink48 is trendy, inviting and service driven. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. The room was nice and comfortable, the only negative is that it didn't have a bath tub. There is a complimentary wine reception each evening. There is also a bar/restaurant that is good. The […] rooftop bar is lovely with a great view, but can be very crowded. The location isn't bad, it is a 5-10 minute walk to Times Square, a 20 minute walk to Central Park and a half hour to Penn Station. One block away is Pier 88 the home of the USS Intrepid.

Super restaurant connected to Hotel called Print. Staff very helpful. Disign of hotel very cool. Would definitely stay there and other Kimpton hotels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was attentive and meet all requests in a cheerful manner, they were very friendly and courteous, something special in NY. Public transportation was not close by it was easy to get a cab or walk to times square. There was a lack of good resturants within a short walk. We ate at the hotel resturant our last morning. The banana pancakes were […] the best I ever had even though a bit pricey. Forgot to mention the room. It was a good size and well laid out, the I pod hook up was old school and not blue tooth useless for I phone 4s, the bath robes were silly, not soft and did not fit comfortably. All in all a pleasant stay with a great view. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Short Visit, Great time!"
Visiting from Baltimore and was unfamiliar with the Kimpton Brand, but soooo glad we stayed. Ink 48 was in an excellent location and within walking distance to a lot of attractions. The staff was very friendly and the hotel was very clean. I would definitely recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful, sleek, modern design in the real NY"
Just great! Staff extremely helpful. Hotel is gorgeous and located on West Side wtih great bars, restaurants and clubs nearby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooftop view is amazing. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very nice as well. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to Time Square or a quick cab ride. There are no close subways but it is worth it to stay at this hotel. I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome property and best roof bar in town"
This hotel was a great value for the money but the real prize was the Press Lounge rooftop bar. Most spectacular view of the city and still somewhat unknown so not at all pretentious. Great place for a sexy date night or get away weekend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Large oversized room & Shower"
It was a wonderful stay. My second time in just a month. We love the oversized room, king bed & the oversized shower ( big enough for two people). Very romantic ! The rooftop bar is a must visit. Wonderful views on 3 sides.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bad choice if you book two double beds room"
The design of hotel is modern, the room is clean and their staff is friendly. Unfortunately our room is located in the 5th floor and it faces 11th avenue which is very noisy through the night. You probably will loose 3-4 hours of sleep if you are not a deep sleeper. There was a a night club near by, we can still hear people talking on the street... […] The staff told me that ALL rooms with two double beds(good for family stay)are facing 11th avenue. This hotel might be good for individual or couples but not for group of 3 - 4 persons.

"Gave good ratings but would not stay here again"
Hotel advertises its roof top bar as a prime feature yet it was only open to hotel guest one night out of the four I stayed due to private parties. This is the norm for this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Watch out for the Noise"
Ink48 is a great hotel, and we really like staying at Kimptons. The food at Print was very, very good and the staff were extemely polite and professional. Unfortunately, they put us on the north side of the hotel facing a nightclub, so we had a very long night of loud music, fights, police blarring sirens, etc. We had kids with us and I was disappointed […] that the hotel staff did not warn us that there would be loud noise outside our window until past 3 a.m. - and this must not be an unusual event because the club was packed all night.

"Great view of the city"
We enjoyed our stay at ink 48 the room was small but very nice with a great city view. The only down side to our stay was the pillows to sof and the roof top bar closes at 1 or 2 am depending on the day wish it was open longer even if 3 drinks cost $45.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Intimate room with a view of the city"
It was a lovely room, it was clean and comfortable, and very open. The view of the city was great, and my husband loved to open the window to hear the sound of the city. The staff was excellent, the concierge was very helpful giving suggestions for food, and they were quick to send someone up with some complimentary items. We were late leaving our room, […] and the cleaning staff was very patient with us. I thought it was interesting that the hot tub was in the middle of the room, but it was the perfect ending to a long day of exploring Time Square. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Hotel on the west side!!"
Alway treated well here. This is my go to spot in NYC.. If you have biz on the west side stay here. If you are working the east side stay over there... Crosstown traffic is no treat..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel with responsive staff"
Ink48 staff were very responsive and the room was fantastic. Great views!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful Hotel But Service Was Poor"
It is a beautiful hotel, but off the path of everything. We had our ac unit emit smoke into our room. The staff was reluctant to move us even with the burnt rubber smell. It took a lot of back and forth and ruined our plans for half the day. It was an oh well level of service with no offer to make good for our inconvenience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the fireworks."
Very satisfiedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Ink 48 has a spare, modern ambiance. It is not a luxury hotel, but offers an airy, openness afforded by its location outside the high rise jungle. Rooms are well appointed and most offer expansive river views or wide city views. Construction details, finishes and fittings are of high quality. On the other hand some of the value benefits are offset by […] its somewhat out of the way location, so cab fares can mount up. Arrival by car can likewise be a nuisance, as parking is difficult and tickets come with a New York price tag. All of that said, if you come prepared, you'll find the staff friendly and helpful, response to service requests very prompt and friendly, and will sense a real appreciation of your visit here.

"Perfect for the 4th of July!"
We had a perfect view of all 4 barges used for the Macy's fireworks display on the Hudson River. It was spectacular. All of the staff were unusually friendly and helpful for a NYC hotel in our experience. We stayed in a Hudson Suite and it's unusual design and openness were well worth the price. We plan to return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Glad we stayed there. Would recommend to others for sure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"City View Room"
Nice room decent big bed was ok comfy. The hallways are a bit rundown. Im a rewards member i was unaware that even thou when you check in you still have to tell them for services like massages. Should show up when i make reservation for spa. Rooftop Bar is very nice. Expensive but what isnt in NY. Overall I might stay there again only if they had specials […] on suites. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Although the hotel is a liitle out of the way, it is worth it as the view of midtown is completely unobstructed. Roof top bar is incredible. All hotel staff outstanding...very service oriented without being overbearing. This may seem like nitpicking but one improvement would be better/softer bath towels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"THE NOISE WAS UNBEARABLE!"
My husband and I stayed here several times before and loved the hotel, despite the fact that it's not that conveniently located. There is a new nightclub across the street on 48th and the noise was unbelievable until about 5 am when all of the loud drunks were finally cleared from the streets. I normally love Kimpton hotels but this lovely corner room […] should have come with a warning label. Perhaps those of us over 50 should be housed on the opposite side of the hotel. The hotel itself has a busy rooftop bar which may also contribute to the noise, but from what I could see looking out the window at 4 am, most of the loud voices and police sirens were centered around the nightclub. I was also impressed by the presence of the Print Restaurant in the hotel, a farm-to-table gem, but this environment does not do it justice. I will never stay here again, sad to say.

"Nice hotel, I'll be back"
I liked this hotel. Rooms were large by NYC standards. Nice bathrooms. High ceilings. My room was on the Hudson side but my view was of a bunch of ambulances - not the best. Room service breakfast was very good and fast, which was a plus. Location is a little off the beaten track but very easy to get a cab from the hotel location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Noisy but great hotel"
I love this hotel and have only great things to say about it. I was so looking forward to staying here as I had heard so much about it and had also been to the rooftop bar. My room was clean, comfortable and well laid out (and a good size for NYC). BUT and this is a big BUT, the noise outside the hotel is terrible and I won't stay here again because […] of that. Basically the whole 48th street side of the hotel overlooks a concert venue. The night I stayed there, they had an event that started at 10pm and I was woken up about 4 am (I could be wrong about the time but it was definitely in the single digits of the morning) when the show let out and I endured an hour of people shouting, taxis honking and police cruisers turning on their sirens. The jack-hammers of the construction zone around the corner started at 7 a.m. Unless they sort out the soundproofing of the rooms or come to some agreement with the concert venue, I really can't recommend this as a place to stay (and this is unfortunate, because it really is a great hotel). I was on the 12th floor and it was like I was at ground level, so not sure that moving higher would help. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful View with Excellent Location"
My boyfriend and I were very pleased with our stay. All the staff were very welcome and greeted every time we were passed in the hallway. We loved our zebra print robes and the wine reception. The hotel is located right near the Hudson which has a nice running/biking trail you can go north or south on that we took advantage of. The view is excellent […] in the evening from the top of the hotel. We also liked that we could see where times square was from our hotel but didn't have the noise level if we were to have actually stayed in a hotel on times square. We will definitely stay at Kimpton Hotels wherever we travel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Boutique hotel, friendly service!"
Beautiful views from the rooftop bar but very crowded. Very friendly and knowledgeable service from the staff with excellent dining recommendations. Room was not ready when we arrived at 7:00 p.m. due to "engineering" problems in the room, but they did give us free drinks after WE requested them for the inconvenience. Still not sure why the room was […] not ready when we arrived. They said it would only be a few minutes (they thought it might be the blinds), but we waited well over an hour. Finally got our room but they said the phone wasn't fixed and had to be "switched-out"? Difficult for me to believe that we waited over an hour for a phone switch (REALLY?). Said the phone would be fixed later. Why did we wait? After, getting over the "first-impression" experience, I did enjoy staying in this hotel. No coffee pot in the room, complimentary in the lobby; but they ran out every morning and they pulled the coffee by 9:15 a.m. every morning that we were there. Nice sized rooms and bathrooms. Very noisy on the third floor (at least in our room) in the late night early morning hours. I would request a higher floor. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Ink48 is a fantastic hotel in every way. The rooms are very nice and spacious with high ceilings, the rooftop bar is awesome, and the amenities are perfect. Most of all, the hotel staff are absolutely INCREDIBLE. They went well beyond the expected level of service and were incredibly helpful when my girlfriend and I wanted to borrow some of the complimentary […] bikes they have available to hotel guests. I would highly recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
There was a mixup with my reservation upon arrival even though I had a confirmation number. Rather than resolve at that moment the front desk said they needed time to make some calls and figure it out. They also informed me that they were completely booked. A little disconcerting. I got a call a few hours later that they had resolved the issue, the […] reservation was under the wrong name. Was looking forward to the rooftop bar, but it was closed for a private function. The room was fine, however there is an all night club accross the street, also with an outdoor, rooftop bar, and it was loud. The noise level was extreme through 5AM and it kept us up all night.

"Great service FAR too noisy"
Hotel staff is outstanding. Location is terrific -- close to everything but not in the middle of Times Square craziness. However, the noise level at night is horrible. There is a nightclub next door that blasts music until 3 am. Road crews have jackhammers going at 3:30 am. I was on the 15th floor and the jackhammer felt (and sounded) like it was right […] next to my bed. I understand that a city hotel will have some street noise and I expect that. I've stayed in NYC hotels many times for work and pleasure. Never had a hotel with this level of a noise problem. But this hotel needs to add some sound-proofing to their windows.

Short: Ink48 was just wonderful !!!! amazing view, great service and awesome rooms !!!!! I´LL COME BACK SOON !! :-)Genuine Expedia guest review
Ink48 was absolutely perfect for our weekend stay. Picture perfect views from the gorgeous & trendy rooftop bar, a complimentary wine tasting from 5-6, refreshing iced lemon water located in the lobby during the day, and coffee and tea in the am. This hotel pays close attention to detail. The rooms were very clean as well as spacious. Very personable […] staff. Ink48 is on a nice, quiet street, but is in walking distance to mid-town & shops. Will definitely stay here again. Loved it! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Never book in this hotel"
I had to change room three times: the hotel is right next to a disco on 48th street , so you hear the loud music banging until 3 or 4 am .from almost allthe rooms . Breakfast quality is just awfull .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great staff and rooms"
Was expecting that I would not get a high city view room, but I was offered that option and I took it. View of city was great, but street was LOUD! Think I'd take the Hudson side instead and enjoy the views from the rooftop bar (which is a stunningly lovely space).Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Wonderful and fabulous-o "find" in New Yor City!"
We arrived early, knowing it would be impossible to check in at 10:00. Andres, front desk, greeted us warmly and would do his best to accommodate us. He secured a copy of the Sunday NYTimes and we made ourselves quite comfy in the lounge. We did get into our room after Noon. The room is fabulous, the bathroom is glorious. We were not on a city-view […] side, so it was very quiet. Coffee and NYTtimes each morning by 6:30 and complimentary wine between 5 and 6 p.m. The restaurant/lounge on the 16th floor has amazing views and is quite popular. We cannot wait to go back to Ink48. Everything was much more than I could have imagined! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
While the hotel is very nice, Ink 48 still needs work on its service. I was never able to reach the front desk directly from my room phone and always had to go through an automated menu; the concierge was not immediately helpful when I asked for assistance in booking a car for my trip to the airport and I don't think the staff was very warm overall […] .

Booked this hotel because we felt it was close to the Theater District and thought we could find on street parking. Yes to both! The hotel was a surprise as well. Beautiful decor in the lobby with wood finishes done very uniquely. There is a bar and a very nice restaurant (we had a lovely breakfast). They upgraded our standard king to a junior sweet […] which was huge and very comfortable. The bathroom could have been a studio apartment! Many windows and views of the Intrepid and Cruise ships. But...the best part of the stay was visiting the roof top bar at night. It was beautiful with an indoor section but the large outdoor part had comfortable couches and views to die for. We took many pictures while have a lovely drink. Well worth a visit even if you are not staying at the hotel!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
