I stayed one night, Sunday, leaving Monday. First checking in the man working the desk was very pleasant and helped me check-in very quickly since I was illegally parked. After an afternoon around town, I returned to the most amazing room. The view is of the West Side HWY which I didn't mind because it made for a very quiet... More

Beautiful room with an amazing view. The staff was friendly and the hotel offered a lot of extras if you sign up to become a Karma Member. It is free and they give you a credit towards the mini bar and some other perks. The complimentary wine hour was a nice treat and Print was excellent for dinner.

I arrived to find that my company made an error and didn't book a room. Stephen at the front desk was exceptional - he made all of the arrangements to quickly check me in to an available room, and later made an incredible restaurant recommendation. The roof top bar is phenomenal, as was breakfast the following morning. This hotel nailed... More

We stayed 5 nights last week. We enjoyed the location on the corner of 11th Ave and 48 Street, we enjoyed the fact that the hotel is a little walk from the "hustle and bustle" of the 5th avenue.

I don't usually write reviews but after my experience at this hotel I had to. I booked a room for me and my wife to give her a romantic relaxing birthday evening away form the kids.

My BF and I spent 5 days at this property with my baby (Pomeranian) and won't stay anywhere else on future trips. Not only was my puppy treated like a king, we were too. I felt at home upon arriving and never felt out of place. It's a beautiful boutique hotel with a breathtaking view from the rooftop lounge.

There are two things I require when staying at a hotel; 1) cleanliness 2) quietness for a good night sleep. Ink48 provided the cleanliness but not the quietness. Hotel caters to a young party crowed and is well known for its roof top bar which is open to the outside public. The room was nice and clean but very noisy.... More

Ink 48 is described as a boutique hotel and we stayed here for five nights. Its location, on 11th Avenue at 48th, is ideal if your main hobby is choosing a new Porsche, Lexus or Lamborghini as the area has a high concentration of car dealerships but very few coffee shops or eateries close by. Our room was a Standard... More

Last week I treated my girlfriend to a long weekend in NYC.

Perfect location for a conference at the Javitz. Clean lobby and cool public space. Check-in, less than stellar. Unprofessional greeting and on top of that I had to wait for 15mins to check a bag since my room wasn't ready. It wasn't the bellman's fault at all, he was the ONLY one on a busy day!

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.
