New York Travel: Ink 48 Hotel
Location: 653 11th Ave., New York, N.Y.
Drive time: About two hours.
Cost: $429-$519 weekdays, $247-$287 weekends. Lowest rates must be prepaid in advance (no refunds).
The scoop: Weekend prices aren’t bad (by New York standards) at this 1930s-print-shop-turned-boutique hotel in Hell’s Kitchen. Walk to the Javits Center, Central Park, museums, riverfront cruise terminals and more. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer great skyline or river views.
Amenities: Pets stay free. A jet-lag recovery treatment at the on-site spa is just the thing to put you in a New York state of mind. (Who cares if you drove?)
Don’t miss: Hosted wine hours for guests. Or sip a cocktail high above the city at the rooftop Press Lounge. Saturday or Sunday brunch at the upscale, casual Print restaurant is divine.
