So let me start by saying I run a small inn thus I have certain standards other folks might not have, and I seek these out when I travel. Kimpton hotels are on my 'regular stay' list as they offer personal service, dog friendly rooms when I need them, good style and great rooms. This was my first time at...

Ink48 is my hotel of choice whenever I visit New York. The staff is friendly, the rooms are spacious for Manhattan and the hotel is in close proximity to many attractions and restaurants. The upstairs rooftop lounge is among the most popular lounges in the city because of the views of both the Hudson river (west) and the skyline of...

I can't say enough good things about Ink48. We are big fans of Kimpton properties and Ink48 did not disappoint. We were in NYC for a long weekend of eating, drinking and theater going. We reserved a river view suite and were amazed at the space and attention to detail in the room (over 600 square feet which is bigger...

We stay in NYC several times a year. This was a quick anniversary trip and we couldnt have been happier with Ink48. The staff was friendly and helpful. Surprisingly, the rooms were spacious, clean and modern-- unlike many hotels in NY. There was a bottle of champagne waiting for us in the room. Also the little things- like credit to...

We had such an amazing stay at this hotel. Firstly the suburb is top notch! Full of great restaurants and not too far away from Times Square but far from the hustle and bustle. Staff were extremely helpful. Bottle of champagne was awaiting us upon arrival. Rooms were surprisingly big and very modern. I mean we were in New York...

THe bartender did not know how to make a manhattan..seriously in manhattan, and the food selection on the roof was pitiful…nuts or olives. So if you want a FABULOUS view but mediocre drinks and no food..take a trip

I would like to be the first to apologize regarding your subpar experience at Press Lounge. Very bizzare as we are rated as one of the best roof top bars in NYC.

Pretty typical boutique/designer hotel decor and set up. The things that distinguish Ink48 are the rooftop bar overlooking NYC and its unusual (to put it nicely), 11th Avenue location. Ink48 isn't really in any neighborhood. It's on 11th Ave in the 40's, stuck between the many Manhattan car dealerships that tend to dominate this area. That said, the location shouldn't...

Hello... Bursting with energy and charisma, Hell’s Kitchen continues to evolve into one of the most sought after neighborhoods in NYC. I could not agree with you more, being away from the epicenter of Times Square we have the luxury to be situated in a serine neighborhood which in turn allows guest to explore Hell’s Kitchen extensively and truly enjoy...

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.
