The Kimpton hotels are fantastic! I have stayed at Ink48 twice now and have been very happy. I only stay in midtown when seeing a show, and this is the only place I would stay. Staff is incredibly friendly and warm, my dog gets a lot of attention as well.

We love Kimpton Hotels and have stayed at Ink48 twice, mostly recently in September 2013 after getting stuck in NYC due to a flight cancellation. The hotel is very modern and rooms are spacious compared to other NYC properties. Costs are also typically slightly less than the other Kimpton hotels in NYC depending on the timing. Staff is friendly, and...

I have been here a few times. And the roof top lounge has to be the best! A short walk for the theater district well worth the trip up to the 16th floor. Drinks are pricey but you are paying for the atmosphere and views. Definitely worth a try.

Nice clean hotel. Nice friendly service! Would stay again, bit pricy for the location! Food at the restaurant is good, again pricy for what it is! Rooftop bar with an amazing view! Drinks are good! Bathroom was huge and very clean!

Looking for a quality hotel (part of the Kimpton chain) away from the centre of town? Sitting on one side of the Manhattan Island a few blocks from the nearest subway in the Hell's Kitchen district this is a shining light in a fairly run down area. Large rooms, decent bathrooms, good quality toiletries, 2 decent bars - the upper...

This hotel is awesome. I loved the bathroom. The shower is so nice. The bar is really fun on the weekends. The rooms are very clean and the staff is so nice. The only downside is the location. It is not all that close to a subway line and there isn't much around it. But it didn't stop me from...

Stayed here as part of a 2 night stay in New York, and i must say i was very impressed. My brother had previously stayed here, and raved about it. I was shocked to find he was right to rave about it. I now see why, nothing is too much trouble for the staff here, you can even have a...

This hotel was very nice. The bed was extremely comfortable and the rooms were large and modern, especially for an affordable hotel in New York. The Press lounge is very popular and offers a nice view of the skyline. The only downside is that it's a bit of a walk (15 minutes) from the closest subway station, but it is...

Great environment. We stay here often for work and the front desk team always warmly welcomes us back and takes great care in making sure we have an excellent stay. It's our home away from home. Recently, we had the possibility of having our flight cancelled. The front desk assured us that we would have a room if needed...giving us...

With so many Manhattan hotels to choose from, I googled "comfortable beds" and settled on Ink48. The bed was very comfortable. I got the best sleep every night of my 5-night stay. Being on the 15th floor, I was worried that noise from the 16th floor roof-top lounge might be a problem. But there were no issues. The decor is...

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.
