Hotel Description
The free Wi-Fi is great but it's the super-cool rooftop lounge ambiance and location that keep our guests coming back to Kimpton INK48 Hotel. The pet-friendly 222-room Kimpton INK48 Hotel is set in a 16-story former printing house (hence the name) with a rooftop lounge affording sweeping views of the city and Hudson River. Rooms done up in chocolate white and red decor have flat-panel TVs designer bath products plush fluffy bathrobes and iPod docking stations. A full-service on-site spa and a fitness facility are on the premises and there's an eco-friendly restaurant worth a bite (you can also have a meal sent to your chambers with 24-hour room service). Valet parking is available for a fee. Ink48 is located in Midtown West's Hell's Kitchen where the views can be stunning since few buildings rise over seven stories tall. JFK International is 17 miles away and LaGuardia Airport is a 10-mile drive. It's a few blocks from the Manhattan Cruise Ship Terminal the Intrepid Air and Space Museum and the Javits Convention Center and is just a 15-minute walk to Times Square and the Theater District. Head up the west side to Columbus Circle Lincoln Center and Central Park less than two miles away.

Loved it.

Robert G, New Jersey, visiting Hudson Terrace Mon, 11 August 2014

Let me preface my review by saying that my wife and I have traveled worldwide and typically stay in 3 to 5 star properties wherever we travel to. Additionally we are both originally from New York. This is an awesome property for many reasons - however, the first is the level of service that the staff exemplifies (front desk, bell service, parking etc). In a city where being rude is the norm we were actually made to feel as if we were visiting our hometown as opposed to a fun Anniversary weekend. This was a last minute booking via online and email and yet the hotel not only provided us with a corner room on an upper floor (1408 I believe) but also had a bottle of bubbly on ice and a hand written note (nice touch). Very impressed with the smoothness and relatively care free check in BUT what was most surprising was the explanation of the parking situation which is no in and out upon validation at a rate of $65 daily (common in NY) but also a quick oratory of other parking garages in the area and approx. pricing and lay of the land in terms of street parking (NY street parking can be difficult just interpreting the signage). They actually went above and beyond which allowed us to make a decision as opposed to parking and finding out later. They probed just enough to explain area dining options (which are plentiful btw - after all, this is NY). The hotel is very chic from the decor of the lobby to the elevators and hallways and of course the rooms which are quite spacious (this is rare in NY where space is at a premium). The beds, lighting and bath are exquisite, not worldwide glamor but elegant chic while the bath products are top notch. They provide you with a complimentary list of items for your needs and sure enough I was in need as I forgot and requested shaving cream (they not only brought the cream but also 2 razors all within 4 minutes - again, rare for a big hotel in NY). This hotel has a great roof bar (we didn't get to enjoy as a guest booked out the roof for a private party (that must have cost a pretty penny) but it's widely recognized). Now the best reason to stay in a hotel on 11th Avenue in Hells Kitchen has to be the access to NYC nightlife and you basically have everything at your disposal including sports bars, clubs, adult clubs, lounges, piano & beyond. In a city that does not sleep this hotel sits in the heart. This is a better location than ANY cheesy Times Square hotel AND you're closer to the West Side Highway (in case you want to zip to the park or TriBeCa or Wall St etc.). See how long it takes for a cab to get from Times Square to 11th Avenue during rush hour (more than 40 minutes and we're talking a mere 4 to 5 blocks). The views from the property are killer especially since it has widely unobstructed views (again rare for a NY high rise building of any kind). There is also the CHANCE of parking around here unlike Midtown or Wall so that's a plus. The restaurant here is ok but to be honest you're in NY so why would you eat in your hotel unless it's 4 or 5 star dining right? Beds in the room are super comfortable and CLEAN! I can think of a few more reasons why I would book here again but I will leave it to you to share your own experience.

Liked: Viability to nightlife, rooftop bar, excellent views,
Disliked: Should link up with food vendor to offer 24hr in room.

Overall, we would highly recommend...

Liked: The staff was helpful and friendly. We were pleasantly surprised how nice the rooms were. The beds were extremely comfortable. We also enjoyed the lovely rooftop lounge as well as complimentary wine tasting before dinner. We walked to the theater district for some shows. It was close enough without being in the crowded Times Square area.
Disliked: The only drawback was some construction noise nearby.

Liked: The rooms were spacious and location was easy to find. Helpful staff when asked for advice and transport. Press lounge provides a good view at night.
Disliked: As it?s dog friendly we could hear dogs barking from our room.No coffee of tea facilities in the room, or WiFi (chargeable) and at $500 a night paid for our room it was ridiculous.


Fair - 2.7 out of 5

Convenient for a quick city...

Liked: Good location and staff.
Disliked: The price was too high for the standard of room when there are better choices on offer for the same price or less.
