I was very pleased with the level of acceptance for all the dogs visiting the hotel. On the website it mentioned that there were door hangers to let the staff know when dogs are in the room and I did not get one. So my room was not refreshed (new towels, make the bed, empty the trash, etc.) the first morning I was there. The dog was gone all day with me and when I got back I had to call to get fresh towels. That was the only downside during my stay.

My stay at Kimpton Ink48 was ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! Location was perfect, away from the bustle of Times square but still close enough that I could walk there. I had a city view, but other skyscrapers and the weather didn’t really allow me to enjoy it. Next time I’ll book a room facing the Hudson and will ask for a room on a higher floor. Also, noise level in hotel and throughout was just fine, no complaint there. BATHROOM: Very spacious bathroom w/ enough room for two people for use w/out being on top of each other. The corner rainfall shower was a bit of a pain for lack of available space to move around & not enough shelf space to put your shower toiletries (literally had only the soap bar shelf available). The soaking tub was idyllic, especially to help relax your muscles after the 10+ hours of walking the streets of NYC. Only Con of the bathroom was the water pressure in the soaking tub was incredibly slow, taking almost 45 minutes just to fill. BEDROOM: My bed was AMAZINGLY comfortable, I slept better than I had in months. The makeup vanity nook w/ seating was perfect, giving me enough space to set up all of my makeup for the day ahead. The A/C was exceptional, genuinely surprised at how powerful it was, keeping me cool throughout the night for a good nights rest. Enough charging docks to keep all of my electronics up and running. The extra seating space was convenient for when I had work to do or simply a hang spot instead of the bed. Overall, enough space to move around.

Great Location for Hell's Kitchen & Hudson River

Pros: View from river side of 12th floor suite.
Cons: Very loud HVAC, expensive Internet.
Location: Hell's Kitchen, short walk to Times Square.
I booked this because I was attending an event at Pier 94, and the location was excellent -- an easy walk there, or to the USS Intrepid, had I chosen to do that. The hotel is contemporary, and everything seems new and in good order. The lobby is small but comfortable, and the restaurant is decent, if a bit expensive (even by NY standards). I stayed in a Suite, which -- as so often -- wasn't really a suite. To me, a suite requires a door between the living area and the bedroom, which this did not have (and no lock on the bathroom door!). So when I had a cocktail party there one evening, it was like doing it in a normal bedroom. As a suite, the room was perhaps bigger than most rooms there, but not overly spacious. It did have an excellent view of the Hudson River, and so seemed bigger. Other than the not-suite part, the room was comfortable, with one major exception. A few cons: their HVAC (I guess if it works, you don't notice it), but this one roared like a freight train whenever it turned on -- which was often. Even at the lowest fan setting, it was loud enough to wake me up at night, and I'm not a light sleeper. I ended up turning it off at night, leaving the room quite cold in the morning. Also, the Internet was expensive, and not very fast/reliable. This is disappointing in the current day and age. Other than that, the amenities were pretty good, the gym was small but well-equipped, and the staff was very friendly.

Thank you for the great review. The Hudson suites are my favorite although as you said there isn't a door to separate the spaces. The views make up for it all. Glad your overall stay was positive and let us know next time you visit us to ensure you don't have an HVAC issue. Hope to see you again soon!

Great review

We loved the Ink48 hotel. Good location, very friendly staff. Our room was very nice with great views. The rooftop bar was incredible. Beautiful!!! Drinks are expensive but worth it...

Modern Luxury

Pros: I love that the shower had a rain shower and a wand but when you had both on, there was still a lot of water pressure. I never felt so clean.
Cons: It wasn't the best at keeping outside noise, outside. When I sat near one wall, I could hear a little of what was being said in the next room.
Location: You will be doing some walking for most things. They do have delis and restaurants an avenue over but other things are a walk.
The hotel staff was very courteous and friendly. Got me checked in quickly. I got a free upgrade to a bigger room because the room I booked was sold out. I really loved the style and feel of the hotel. It was very stylish, luxurious and modern. I love the fact that being a guest at the hotel gave me VIP access to the hotel's roof top bar and I didn't have to wait in line. The rooftop bar has some of the most beautiful views you can get in the city. You get both a great view of the hudson river on the west. And you get a beautiful view of the city skyline on the east side of the hotel. I loved it.

Excellent hotel with a skyline view!

What you see in the pictures is what you get. The staff was great. This part of Hell's kitchen is about a 20min walk to times square.

West is the Best

Pros: Bed was REALLY COMFORTABLE!!! Nice bathroom.
Cons: The guys at front door/lobby were nice but not very proactive. Didn't even open door for me when leaving with 3 pieces of luggage. Kinda weird.
Location: It's 'way west' in NYC, but close to the pier where my cruise departed from... a short walk.
They upgraded me to a higher floor with a nice view of Manhattan.

Modern clean hotel with friendly staff

Pros: Cleanliness, staff
Location: Nice view of river (if you have a room with a view). Hotel is a little off the beaten track.
Stayed one night and really liked the ambience of the hotel. Did not eat at the restaurant but regretted not doing so as it appears to be top notch based on posted reviews.

Beautiful hotel away from the chaos

My experience at Ink was about as good as a hotel experience gets. When I arrived the room was ready. And it was even more spacious than the photos, which is usually the opposite. There was lots of lighting to set any mood you want. The bed was just right and perfect soft pillows. Staff was all A+ as well.

great place, but no bathroom privacy!

Cons: bathroom door - seal that thing!
Hotel, Staff, Cleanliness, Facility, Amenities = all Excellent..the only issue I had was the bathroom door has large gaps (glass door) and there's not enough privacy for people trying to go to the bathroom while their guest is only 8 feet away!
