Located on the edges of Hell’s Kitchen, right on the Hudson River waterfront, you will find views that are to die for.

They believe personalization and getting to know each of their guests is the key to making a spectacular stay. Specifically at Ink48, the pride themselves on catering to the “bleisure” crowd (business + leisure). Rooms and conference spaces have recently be renovated that allow you to connect and socialize with ease. Guest rooms have been stylized with a New York runway apartment in mind, with large windows that allow you to take in Midtown Manhattan views from the comfort of your King size bed (which you will be melting into). Rooms are designed with a simplistic elegance. White washed walls and earthy tones with pops of color make the rooms stand out with sophistication.
