Ink48 marking New York’s West Side

Continue reading below

NEW YORK — Sleek, refined, sophisticated: not words one would ordinarily associate with a 1930s printing plant. But rather than disown its building’s origins, Ink48 celebrates them. Part of the rebirth of the once notorious Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood, this Kimpton boutique hotel enlivens a dull block with its farm-to-table PRINT restaurant and the Ink Spa (with massage therapies called “imprint” and “emboss”), as well as such complimentary amenities as loaner bikes for exploring the nearby Hudson River Greenway. And while the line for the rooftop Press Lounge bar can stretch out the door, hotel guests are granted preferred access, as space allows. Fans of “The Late Show With David Letterman” will recognize the bar’s al fresco space from the show’s opening credits (the band poses there), but even non-imbibers will want to check out the view of Times Square to the east and the Hudson to the west. Rooms from $299.

INK 48 653 11th Ave. (at 48th Street), 212-757-0088. www.ink48.com
