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!

Boutique hotel

Pros: Hip, modern decor plus excellent service.
This boutique hotel is located close to everything but out of the way of the hustle and bustle of NYC. It is five blocks from the cruise terminals and a $7 cab ride to the theater. I love the Kimpton group. The restaurant that is attached, Print, is simply excellent.

Great hotel close to everything

Pros: Vicinity and smaller size
Cons: Our room was on the 2nd floor and we looked at scaffolding - not a great view so next time I would look to have a higher floor
Location: walking distance to just about everything - we are walkers!
this was our first time and we would definitely return - great location, loved the rooftop, nice room and enjoyed the spa! Felt like a mini Las Vegas property in Manhattan!
