Ink48 served as my home away from home while taking in a few Broadway shows and miscellaneous activities around town. My 3-night stay during Super Bowl weekend was not only comfortable but relaxing too. I rarely saw other guests in the lobby, and barely heard street noise from my room on the 11th floor. As described by others you’re a bit away from the normal hustle & bustle but only a few blocks away from 9th Avenue/Restaurant Row which has everything you’ll need. I took the easy stroll around the corner to Sullivan’s Bakery, and there’s a Starbucks up the way for those who can’t drink anything but. The complimentary tea and coffee is a nice touch but unfortunately I could only take advantage one morning as it is over at 9am. Ventured up to the rooftop bar and it’s a gorgeous view. What I didn’t understand is why such a beautiful space isn’t available to the public. One must possess a hotel room key to show security before entering the elevator.
As for the accommodations, my only negative observation was the bathroom towels. Each day I noticed maybe one or two that could stand to be pulled from rotation: a little thin and dingy. Otherwise the rooms are clean and the furniture is well-maintained. You may hear a door slam here or there but nothing worth mentioning. And I loved the animal print bath robes.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to others who don’t mind being a few steps outside of the crowded streets and honking horns. But as others have noted it is a bit remote especially when walking back from Times Square after dark. Enjoy your stay and don't forget to join the Kimpton rewards program before arriving for free WiFi and other benefits.
