“It depends on what you are looking for in Manhattan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

It is a great well designed hotel that can offer in many of its rooms a nice view to Manhattan.
It was a good value for money for the $300 (including taxes) that we paid for a city view king room on March 2013 but would think twice if I was to spend more than $350.
Room 2205 (22 out of 23 floors) was spacious with a fantastic view to ESB. The heating system was a little noisy and the bathroom a little chilly. Great bed. Great feeling.
The hotel's facilities were great. Breakfast a little pricy (the buffet cost $40 pp including taxes and double espesso).
I would expect that they would provide coffee all day in the lounge and not just in the morning (other, cheaper, hotels in the area did so).
The most risky thing when you pick up this hotel for your holiday is the location.
It is in a rather degraded Manhattan area that doesn’t give you the feeling that you may expect.
In the other hand the location is very strategic to combine the Soho and Village area (specially for the night) with midtown Manhattan. And that was good enough for us.

Room Tip: Room 2205 (22 out of 23 floors) was spacious with a fantastic view to ESB. The heating system was a...

I stayed at the hotel for business. It was a short walk from penn station and the rooms were large (for NYC). Loved the wine reception. Restaurant not so great and not great selections in the area but I did like the vibe of the place.

Stayed here for four nights 7th to 11th march 2013 with my husband for a weekend break. This hotel was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble for the staff, from helping book tickets to a comedy club to providing advice on tipping as this was our first trip to USA, we asked for a city view room which I would recommend. The location was brilliant for sightseeing all over nyc and we found lots of great places to eat and drink close to the hotel. The rooms were large for a central city location and we loved the floor to ceiling windows. The bathrooms were also very generous (last time I stayed in central London the bathroom was 1/5 the size- barely enough room for one person) the bed was large and very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family traveling to nyc.

My daughter and I stayed in this hotel four times within the last year. You know how the first time you go somewhere, it's great but the following visits, you like it less and less. Not with the Eventi. Love the location -- rooms are what hotel rooms should be in NYC. Absolutely adore the wine receptions in the late afternoon. Twice it was on the rooftop and the weather held in our favor. Couldn't pick a better place to unwind after a long day working. The coffee in the lobby is great in the mornings and the staff went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. What hotels phone you every day to make sure that the hotel is up to your expectations? We stayed four times and will continue to stay there in the future.

I highly recommend this hotel for the location and especially the view! I was in the city for business on a Sunday night and got a great deal from Jetsetter.com. I spent an extra $15 and got a ciity view room, which i highly recommend. I travel to NYC on business at least twice a month and have stayed in over 50 different boutique hotels in the past few years, this by far exceeded my expectations for the price i paid, ($215). The location is also very convenient to shopping, restaurants, and nightlife.

Room Tip: choose a city view room

Recently stayed at the Eventi Hotel in NYC and must say that Kimpton is totally getting it right. I travel a lot and must say that between the Eventi in NYC, the Palomar in SF and the Monaco in Baltimore, they totally understand that the customer experience is EVERYTHING. The staff are incredibly polite, the restaurants are strong and the hotel design and decor are very nicely done and I feel that I am always staying in a much pricier hotel than what I pay. A great bargain for what you get. I highly recommend these hotels that Kimpton own to stay at.

I stayed three nights at the Eventi. The quality is very high and the service very good. The hotel is very well located, just 10 minutes walk from Times Square. From my room I was able to see the Empire State Building. The breakfast starts at 7:30am. The quality of the food was extremely good with fresh fruit, freshly baked bred and pastry. Excellent! My room was big and the internet fast. The hotel has SPA and Gym, but I haven't tried them. I highly recommend this hotel!
