“A Standout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

We gave this Kimpton hotel a chance simply because it was part of a bulk discount booking site. We used to always stay at a local Kimpton when we lived on the west coast, even hosting our wedding party there, so we are no stranger to the brand. However, my husband and I come into the city frequently to have dinner and see a show. With so many hotels competing against each other, we have no brand loyalty. You can always score a high-end hotel for a relative New York bargain.

The location of Eventi was perfect for walking to our show, or any Broadway show for that matter.
The hotel room was a standout. Valet parking is $50, which is just four or five dollars more than a nearby self-park.

We booked a king deluxe room which was quite spacious, with dramatic floor to ceiling windows, a plush bed, and comfortable pillows. The bathroom was large, clean and modern. The room felt very spacious and was definitely some place I could comfortably stay for several days.

Our time at Eventi was very tranquil, which is appreciated when we want to escape the mania of the city.

Eventi has again inspired brand loyalty and is a NYC discovery that has stopped us from just jumping from hotel to hotel. We are already set to book a return weekend to Eventi.

Eventi's my jam whenever I'm in Manhattan (a few weekends a year). I'm a Kimpton fan and try to stay with the chain whenever I can, because they really do it right and make sure their customers are happy, and I'm never disappointed with a Kimpton.

Eventi in particular is comfortable, a bit luxurious, in an ideal location for me, and has wonderful staff. Every time I'm here for some kind of occasion (birthday, anniversary), they never hesitate to send up a little token of celebration, be it a cupcake, box of chocolates, or bottle of champagne. Love the usual Kimpton perks as well (wine happy hour, free coffee/tea, $15 free from the mini-bar, free wifi, great toiletries, use of a robe and yoga mat, pets allowed, etc.). I keep my eyes out for deals via email so I usually stay here for about ~$200 a night which is really cheap for what you get IMO. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: I like the higher rooms, they have a better view

I stayed at the Eventi for one night. I stayed in a room with a King size bed and was pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. Oftentimes when I stay in Manhattan I find hotel rooms rather cramped. Not so at the Eventi. The room had a very nice bathroom, once again quite spacious. Unfortunately, the room itself was not very clean. It was very much in need of a good dusting and vacuum. The furniture was worn.
The hotel staff was very pleasant and efficient.

Great experience from the time we pulled up to the front door. Front desk staff was very helpful and professional. Our accommodations were excellent with a fantastic view of the Empire State building. Anytime I am in Manhattan I will stay at this very trendy hotel.

I booked a surprise trip to New York and Boston to celebrate my husband's birthday. From the first contact through Kimpton reservations team to the end of the stay we had excellent service. I exchanged a few emails and phone calls with the reservations coordinator Lulu Elkerm and she was very attentive, responsive ;offering me the best rates deal accommodating my budget. I had such an impressive service from Lulu I booked both hotels Eventi and Nine Zero.
When we got to the Eventi Hotel we were welcomed by the lovely Brenda and she informed were upgraded to a higher floor with beautiful views of New York. Our room was on the 20th floor, and when we saw the views it definitely had an amazing Wow factor. There was also a lovely note from the concierge Brenda, a bottle of bubbly and cup cake to celebrate the special occasion! A personal touch from the start.
The room was well appointed, beautifully furnished, quite spacious , it felt plush and chic. At night it was beautiful just to watch the city lights and the view of Empire State Building...bewildering!
Location was spot on ,with easy access to the main sites, Penn Station, Macy's, Madison Sq gardens, and good choice of restaurants and Deli's to eat nearby. We also felt very safe to walk in the area during the evenings.
The service was top quality from all the staff, always ready to help. Internet service was free being a Intouch Kimpton member, no issues with speed at all.
A wonderful week that was made special by Kimpton, Eventi and their staff. Thank you!Wonderful hotel, recommended.

My husband and I had never been to New York before and we really had no idea what to expect of where would be best to stay. We decided to stay at the Eventi hotel for a week early April and it we were really glad that we did!

The location was perfect and it was so easy to get anywhere, in fact we were spoilt with the weather so we pretty much walked everywhere we went! Shops, restaurants, cafes, parks, theatres and Madison Square Garden were all on our doorstep so we were spoilt for choice.

The hotel itself was fantastic with the room being clean and comfortable with the most stunning view of The Empire State Building. The staff were friendly and the wine hour a real added bonus! Though Eventi offer complimentary hot drinks in the lobby in the mornings, the only slight downside of the hotel was the lack of tea-making facilities in the rooms. I feel with this the hotel would be perfect.

All-in-all a wonderful hotel which I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for the first time on Fri. 4/18/14. The 30th Street and 6th Ave. location could not have been more convenient because we were arriving in Manhattan via Penn station and were attending a concert at The Garden that evening. The one-night rate for the room was much higher than I would normally spend, but I know not out of line with other hotel rates in Manhattan. Plus, as I expected of a Kimpton hotel, the quality of service provided was amazing. If there was one opportunity for improvement I say the size of the room could have been larger. I appreciate that the room came with a yoga pad, but the limited free floor space made floor exercise almost impossible.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the Empire State Building.
