We stayed at Ink48 for our honeymoon and could not recommend it enough. The hotel is lovely and the rooms are a really good size for NYC. There are lots of special touches that add to your stay such as 'wine hour' and the complimentary drinks in the morning. The best bit about the hotel however is the staff. They...

Very nice and welcoming hotel. Print restaraunt and the press lounge are very convenient. The service is excellent. The wine happy lounge with complementary wine from 4-6 was a nice touch as is the AM coffee. It lacks a hot tub or pool but the exercise equipment is reasonable.Our room overlooked the hudson but was bit cold (it was a...

First NYC trip and first stay at a Kimpton property. Very impressed with the treatment we received during our seven day stay. All staff was friendly but professional. Lots of positive attention to the little amenities that make or break a hotel visit. Very welcoming atmosphere and super clean. Print Restaurant and Bar on the property matches the classy, vibrant...

Great little hotel pack with lots of plus from my point of view! starting from the fact that pets are welcome (even free dog treats on the lobby) from the front desk staff who are really helpful! to how spacious room for NYC standars! will be back soon!

Ink48 was a very pleasant hotel, we’ll stay here again next time for sure! We only stayed for 3 nights this time but we wished we could have stayed longer. The check in/out was efficient. Location is ace with Times Square nearby and lovely views over the Hudson River. We didn’t mind it being a bit “off” as we generally...

My wife and I were in NYC early December 2013, to experience the Christmas magic the city is famous for - It delivered in bucket loads.

A little isolated by NYC standards and way way too hard to get a cab on their doorstep. Ladies you will be traipsing in your heels. The staff was really friendly. The gym is typical but no fruit bowl. I didn't try the restaurant on site but did find a hole in the wall taco joint on the side of...

Hello There, The taco place you speak of is a hidden treasure; however PRINT restaurant located on the lobby level of the hotel is a stellar.

Staying at Ink48 requires a bit of commitment on the traveler's part: unless you're comfortable with taxis, walking, or paying for high priced overnight parking, it's maybe not the most convenient hotel option in the city. If you can overlook that, you'll have one of the best stays in Manhattan. Given its location in Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan-facing rooms have terrific...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
