It’s exciting to see NYC hotels prioritizing eco-friendly features along with their swanky interiors, and Kimpton’s Ink48 has been one of the leaders of the pack right from the start. The luxurious establishment boasts a strong sustainability portfolio that goes hand-in-hand with its brand’s sophisticated metropolitan vibe, and its eco-conscious efforts have earned it several green accolades over the years.
As with most Kimpton boutique hotels, which are certified by the Green Key Eco-Rating Program and TripAdvisor GreenLeaders™ Program, Ink48, has a number of green hotel practices such as eco-friendly bath products, in-room recycling bins, limited paper products, energy-efficient lighting, low-flow water toilets and faucets and other sustainable features. Additionally, the hotel’s line of cleaning products are eco-friendly and they serve only organic and/or free trade coffee and tea products.
The hotel’s sustainable measures can also be found on its PRINT Restaurant and Press Lounge menus, which feature sustainable local options that follow Monterey Bay Seafood Watch standards regarding seafood choices.
In fact, the hotel’s top-notch green policy caught the attention of the HotelWorld Global Hospitality & Design Awards, which named Ink48 Corporate Citizen of the Year a few years ago. The internationally-recognized award is given to”truly celebrate the design and hospitality excellence shown by industry leaders.”
