“Another great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Just came back from celebrating out Anniversary and stayed at the Eventi. We love this hotel. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. The social hour is great too. We sat in the open air restaurant and I ordered the filet mignon. It was the best!! Cooked perfectly. I have never been compelled to write reviews before but this hotel inspires me to do so every time!

It is a bit expensive but hey, you are in NYC... went for roof top wine tasting, was fantastic. The location is great, staff is friendly and polite... A+++. The bathroom is huge for NYC and I have to say, there are plugs everywhere for your laptop, cell phone or whatever electronics you have on you, you will find a plug in the small... which it is rare.

In a town where a pastrami sandwich cost US$17, I suppose the lodging cost at Eventi is reasonable, even if it does take my country bumkin breath away. Moving past that issue, what a nice hotel!

Check in was smooth and easy (thank you Kevin), and the front desk staff were professional, courteous and well informed. Morning coffee, and mid day water provided in the lobby were much appreciated.

As for our room, wow is the first thing that comes to mind. Super comfy king bed with plenty of walking around room, ample closet space and a huge (sexy) bath --plus floor to ceiling views of the city.scape. We were on the 20th floor with the Empire State Building unforgettably featured in our view to remember.

I have to drop in a word about the hotel engineers.. When we first arrived and I saw that only 3 guest elevators service this entire hotel, I expected we'd spend a good bit of time waiting for a car.
But, not so. Even with a big wedding, and other events going on at this sold out property we never waited more that one minute for the elevator.

My only recommendation to management is they might want to replace the scratchy towels and add a craft brew selection to the happy hour.

I stay at Kimpton Hotels frequently with my family and our dog but this time was a girl's night in NYC. I was expecting a good experience because of previous stays in Kimpton but I can't say enough about this hotel. Great location near Chelsea and public transportation. Cozy lobby. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms have floor to ceiling windows and the views are fabulous. Rarely do I use in-room dining but we ate late night and the food couldn't have been better. Excellent!

I stayed at the Eventi for two nights at the end of September to attend a conference which was being held onsite. I was very happy with the room, which provided awesome views from the floor to ceiling windows. The service was outstanding, and there is a complimentary happy hour each day held at the hotel; however I was not able to attend due to the time constraints.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor and a corner room

The hotel is a great central location- 10 minute walk to anything in midtown (Empire State, Macy's, Times Square), Chelsea Highline, Soho. High floors have less street noise, and a corner room will give you great natural light through the floor to ceiling windows, and maybe even a view of the Empire State!
The hotel is new (5 years old) and in immaculate condition. The rooms are spacious (especially for NYC) with wonderful large showers, lots of storage for clothes and a great desk. The beds are comfy and the lighting is versatile. The decor is comfortable, contemporary and sleek. Loved it.
Great stocked mini bar, excellent room service. The famous Kimpton wine hour on the back veranda overlooking a courtyard with black and white movies projected on the adjacent building is pure NY magic.
What takes this property from awesome to extraordinary is the staff- they simply could not do enough for us. Service was flawless and sincere. Stay here- you won't regret it.

Room Tip: Join Kimpton In Touch, get a corner room on a higher floor. The back of the hotel has less street n...

Green Features: Follows Kimpton's excellent policies. Plenty of recycling and re-using alternatives available.

Our room was on the 19th floor with great views of the Empire State Building. The room was clean and comfortable but without facilities to make tea and coffee in the room. However, there was tea and coffee provided in the foyer in the mornings although too much effort to come down from our room. We had a very good dinner in the hotel one evening.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with Empire State Building view.
