Ink 48

I did something different this week after my check up in Manhattan and instead of coming home, I stayed the night in the city.  I stayed at a new hotel called Ink 48, which used to be a publishing house, which I find so cool! I had really high expectations for this hotel as being cool and modern.  My usual go to hotel is the W, so I was looking for a comprable feel.  This hotel is located in Hell's kitchen, which is not the best location in the world, but with such easy access to taxis I don't really think that matters much.  Plus this was an ideal location for me because it's right off the west side highway, and so is my hospital.  The hotel is located between lots and lots of car dealerships.  If you are looking for a starbucks next door to you, and some nice scenery you will not find that here.  We pulled up to a really cool building though, and valeted the car, which they were super quick about, and entered the lobby.  We walked into the lobby and we were greeted by three dog bowls, which I thought was so cute.  This hotel is doggie friendly.  The lobby was really nice and relaxed and modern.  I loved it. 

We were checked in right away and went up to our room.  The room was better than I expected actually.  We were in something like a junior suite, so it was really spacious and the bathroom was really amazing, with a soaking tub and huge shower and two sinks. 

We had a really great city view, and the bed was SO comfortable.  We had a nice little couch at the window too. 

It was also really quiet.  I was able to sleep peacefully here.  We had room service breakfast which was also really good.  The only thing i regret is we didn't have any time to make it up to the rooftop bar which was totally hopping by the time we got back from dinner.  Next time.  I will stay here again in a heart beat.  I would high recommend it.  But if you are the type that wants to be in Time Square and have everything right at your footstep, this hotel is not for you.  But if you don't mind a 10 dollar cab right to get wherever you might want to go, this place is perfect for you.  We walked two avenues over and there were tons of restaurants and things around, just nothing right next to us....
