My girlfriend and I stayed for two nights over Memorial Day weekend and loved Eventi! We arrived very early and the hotel checked our bags at no charge while we ventured through the city. The hotel is in a perfect part of Chelsea if you plan on going all over Manhattan. You're not far from Central Park and the museums, Greenwich Village and SoHo are right down the street, and legendary 5th Ave shopping starts right around the corner. Even getting over to Brooklyn is easy. There are subway stations in every direction and cabs are always running up 6th Ave.
When we finally checked in and got up to the room, we discovered a bottle of sparkling wine on ice and a small box of chocolates the staff graciously left for us as part of my "something special" request on the booking website. A great introduction to Eventi. Our room (corner room with a king bed) was quite spacious especially by Manhattan standards. Plenty of room for luggage, shopping bags, and piles of random stuff one accumulates while traveling. We had two huge floor-to-ceiling corner windows with a decent view of the west side of Chelsea. The room was well-lit, comfortable, and clean. Power outlets were conveniently located on the nightstands.
The bathroom was very spacious and clean as well. Marble floors and countertops, a rainfall shower-head, and a regular shower-head. There was a even a little bench to sit down in the shower. One strange thing we noticed was that there was no door to the shower, so half the shower stall is basically completely exposed to the rest of the bathroom. It was weird, but somehow we didn't get water all over the floor.
We were high up on the 14th floor and facing away from 6th Ave, so we didn't experience any street noise issues that are common in Midtown-area hotels. Be sure to keep that in mind here too. Touring the city typically means you're only in the hotel room to sleep and shower, but if you find yourself relaxing in the hotel for a while, they have a lot of amenities and services like 24-hour room service, 24-hour fitness facility, and spa services by appointment. We didn't partake in any of those during our stay so I can't comment on them.
We forgot to bring toothpaste and I forgot my shaving razor, but no worries. Eventi supplies toiletries and small amenities like that at no charge. I called the front desk and they promptly sent up some travel-size toothpaste, a disposable razor, and a free toothbrush too. Great service.
I would 100% recommend this hotel. Impressive service, perfect location, and spacious rooms. I would say it's tremendous value for Manhattan. I've stayed in many hotels in the city before and space is at a premium. Eventi manages to give you plenty of space and amenities without skimping on quality.
Eventi made our weekend getaway to NY a memorable one. We look forward to returning soon.
