Our Mascot

Meet Inky

Just like Ink 48 Hotel, our octopus ambassador, Inky, is a true original. The coral reef life wasn’t for her, so she packed eight suitcases and swam off in search of a new home. A fateful wrong turn led her into the Hudson River and she eventually washed up on our doorstep. Taking in our sweeping river views, the excellent fresh seafood at PRINT. and our rooftop reflecting pool at The Press Lounge, the independently-minded mollusk knew she’d found just the place for her.

Our cephalopod friend earns her keep by supplying all the ink used at the hotel — and lending a helping hand (or several!) to guests. In her spare time, Inky loves to borrow a bike and ride along the water or indulge in a salt scrub at our spa.
