Located on the north side of level 14 – the simple layout of this King Room at Ink 48 New York is very functional. The decor is modern and there is a selection of framed local photographs in keeping with the Ink theme of the hotel.

The main feature of the room is the large three seater couch and single chair under the window. There is a small table in the centre. Although not very practical for working at or eating, it’s still a pretty comfortable little spot. And is a great second space in the room.
Of course, being high up on the 14th floor, the view is wonderful. The view looks straight up 11th Ave, across Hells Kitchen, toward the upper west side.
The 180° view includes a few classic buildings including the New York’s tallest residential tower all the way round to the Hudson River and piers. You’ll love sitting on the couch and gazing out the window.
The bed is very comfortable with two types of pillows feather filled and foam filled.
The bathroom is in average size with no bath. The power shower is easy to get your temperature right, but the shower head only has one setting – spray at 45° – which isnt very helpful.
Storage is very good. I’m here for a long stay and have utilised the wardrobe and 4 drawer cabinet. I love the USB sockets beside the bed. Why aren’t these everywhere?
The mini bar appears to be well stocked – all of the usual late night snacks, drinks and other treats. A really nice touch is the local Brooklyn Lager and Californian wine. Not just the usual big brands.
The only slight gripe I have with the room is the noise. Now being in New York, one has to expect a lot of ambient street noise. And that certainly here in abundance. However, The Press Club bar upstairs on Friday and Saturday night gets pretty loud into the small hours. There is also the usual late night door slams from guests. Thankfully the room is as far away from the left as possible.
