We stayed at the Eventi the first week in December, a particularly hard week to find a hotel in NYC. From the moment we checked in, we made friends with the staff. They were friendly and fun and extra nice to my 12-year old son. They recognized us each time we walked in and out, which made things really great. The great thing that we noticed is that the staff really liked each other and seemed to have a lot of fun working there. We particularly loved the restaurant manager, Tim, who took great care of us and was so funny and attentive to us.
Oh and it was my birthday so they nicely left us a note and some cupcakes in the room, which was great!
The room was not super big (but I guess this is NYC). Ours had 2 queen beds and not much room for anything else. The one negative was that it was rather dimly lit even when we turned on every last light, but from what I understand this is a green hotel and they are saving on energy and wattage. However, we would have liked to have the room a bit brighter since there was also a lot of woodwork and dark closet doors which also made the room on the dark side even during the day. The beds were extremely comfortable with nice white fluffy duvet comforters and down pillows. There were a lot of outlets and close to the bed (and located on the nightstands) which were great for charging phones and computers.
We were on a high floor with nice views. The rooms with two beds don't face the empire state building, which was a bummer because we hoped to see it from the windows. The hotel is centrally located and we walked from Penn Station and walked to Bryant Park which is beautiful around Christmastime.
The 2nd floor restaurant has a glass ceiling and is open to the sky which is beautiful at night and from what I understand the roof retracts which would be awesome on a summer night (which they said they do).
Overall we had a great stay!
