We can tell you that the hotel's location, while not so great for popping out for a quick bite or getting anywhere else in NYC fast, does make for a spectacular sunset. We used to live just up the street from here, with similar views of the city to the east, and the Hudson River to the west.
Also, after dark, people don't seem to mind a trek or taxi ride to their nightspot of choice (where would all those Chelsea nightclubs be otherwise?), so assuming the drinks and plates of salami are tasty, we don't see the location being a major issue for people who like to drink outside.
What do you think? Would you head to the far western reaches of Manhattan to enjoy a cocktail on the 16th floor of Ink48? Let us know in the comments below.
Or maybe we'll just see you there once the temperature kicks it up another notch ...
