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.

Good service but not the quietest

Overall the hotel was as advertised; clean, modern and the service was good. Everyone was friendly but the room we got was on a low level and just loud. When asked about adding my Kimpton rewards number, the front desk promptly explained they did not honor them for 3rd party reservations. This i can understand but overall this just gave me the impression reservations through 3rd parties are considered second tier. This played out in the room we got which was on a low level and next to the elevator.

great hotel, but noisy

Ink48 is a great hotel. The location is very convenient to the Theatre District, and it's easy to walk many places in Midtown, or to get to the Subway. However, it is very noisy. I stayed there with my son and our room was on the third floor, facing 48th St. It was noisy all night but then around 5am, I think they unload dumpsters for a couple of hours. It may be better if you can get a room higher up, or perhaps not facing 48th, but it did put a bit of a damper on my enjoyment. (My son slept through most of the noise, so it may be in part just me.)

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.

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.

Bright and Clean

Great for theater access. The hotel is bright and clean with an attentive staff. The restaurant and bar is reasonably priced with great food, especially breakfast. Go to the 16th floor rooftop bar for a drink and special view of the mid-town Manhattan skyline. Wonderful safe neighborhood.

Easy subway access from 50th or 42nd street on the 8th avenue line saves cab fare and gets you anywhere in the city.

Great Birthday Treat!

A trendy, cool hotel with a fabulous rooftop bar with great views over the night skyline. The rooms are nothing exceptional and we had to ask for a friends room to be re-cleaned as the bathroom was not clean. There was also quite a bit of noise from the construction going on close which cannot be blocked out (even 14 floors up) but then the same can be said for anywhere in the city as it is going on everywhere. It was quite a hike from the places we wanted to go to and its not on a subway route however taxi are relatively inexpensive. The staff however were very attentive and helpful. The wine evening is the same 2 wines each night and they are not that great but a welcome start to the evening! Overall, a great hotel, a welcome change to the normal 4* hotels and a good price for New York..... eye watering for us coming the UK particularly as its room only BUT this is New York.
