“Great Hotel @ a great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

The hotel is very well located with great restaurants, metro stations, shopping malls/stores and clubs. A few steps away from Manhattan mall, Macy's biggest store, Empire state building, and several other brand stores (Zara, H&M, Steve madden, GAP...)

Staff is fine, the hotel rooms are great with average size, lighting is good and the shower is amazing. Internet service is excellent and TV service is also awesome with several on-demand movies with excelent/HD quality.

The food is good and so is the restaurant and bar. This is my new spot in Manhattan.

The hotel is ok but definitely not a 4 ½ star. Sheets aren't great quality and very wrinkled, carpet and furniture were worn and layout of suite terrible (barely able to navigate around bed and closet was made for a barbi doll).

Room Tip: ask for largest bedroom possible

The staff at the hotel was great. The rooms were clean. They had amazing views and the bathroom had an amazing rain shower. Best location walking distance to everything. We would absolutely stay here again. We are already thinking of when to come back! Had a great experience.

The Eventi is 2 blocks from Penn Station which is very convenient for traveling (especially by train). The hotel lobby is small but the staff at the front desk were helpful and pleasant. The rooms are average sized with nice walk in shower. No tub. The hotel overall looked a bit dark and in need of a refresh. The fitness center is open 24 hours and well appointed with treadmills, bikes and elipticals. Very good price and central location. It is also pet friendly.

"Love" is an understatement to describe how I feel about Kimpton hotels. Each property I have stayed at is the perfect mix of practical and whimsical.

This hotel blew all of my expectations out of the water and then some! The hotel is clean and stylish in a super convenient location (20 minute walk to Midtown for business meetings; 5 minute walk to 5th Ave shopping; 15-20 minute walk to stylish Village restaurants and bars).

My room (1705, a King room on the 17th floor with a spectacular view of the Empire State Building) was spacious and comfortable--much bigger than most Manhattan rooms. The bathroom was HUGE, sleek, and stylish!

Staff was amazingly accommodating, welcoming and friendly.

All in all, this hotel is gorgeous, safe, in a great location, and absolutely my new favorite NoMad hotel -- or any Manhattan hotel for that matter! Since I work for the state government, I also got a super-reasonable rate -- unheard of for such a high quality Manhattan hotel.

Highly recommend! Don't forget to join Kimpton Karma loyalty program before your visit -- I got free WiFi and a $15 minibar credit.

P.S. To the Eventi Hotel: thank you for the Help! I Have a Blister kit in the honor bar! After walking 10 miles in heels from meeting to meeting, this was a God-send!

Room Tip: 1705 was a great room -- high enough off the street to reduce noise, comfortable, and beautiful view...

We just came back from a long weekend in NYC. This time we stayed at the Eventi hotel in Chelsea. The Eventi was great. The rooms are smallish (I think that's typical of NYC) but they are great. The views are amazing - we were lucky enough to have a 20th floor room with a view of the Empire State Building - pretty impressive - especially when most of one wall was floor to ceiling windows. The bathroom is huge for the size of the room and everything was clean and functioning as one would expect from a better hotel. The staff is extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

It's about a 7 - 10 minute walk to the Highline, 15 - 20 minutes to Times Square and about 20 - 30 minutes to Central Park. Be sure to visit the outdoor restaurant stands at Greeley Park just a couple blocks from the hotel for a great New York experience.

All in all, another great experience at a Kimpton Hotel. We will continue to look for Kimpton wherever we can.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher room with a view of the Empire State Building

We stayed this weekend and received the great service, decor, and cleanliness we are accustom to at the Kimpton Hotels. We have stayed at two hotels in Alexandria and now two in NY. They have all been staffed with helpful dedicated employees who have always been responsive and courteous. The decor at all four places has been modern, beautiful and most importantly, extremely clean. Truly elegance without the high prices. They always schedule their wine receptions during a great time of the day when you are looking to relax and freshen up before your evening activities and staff are interactive and friendly. The rooms are well appointed with great amenties and convenient lighting options as well as electronic plugs. It is apparent that some thought goes into the room design. We had a huge shower, comfortable bed, pillow choices, and good linens which I always appreciate!!! Our rooms was on the 19th floor/corner rrom and very quiet. Several subway stops are also convenient to this locate so navigating the city was simple. You are just a few blocks from the Highline as well and the hotel has bicycles to use if your brave. We also tried the restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was prepared to perfection (hanger steak) and very flavorful all the way down to the truffle fries! Chef and bartenders, great job!! A huge thanks to our hostess on the afternoon evening of the 20th...she was friendly, imformative and courteous going out of her way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. A very gracious young lady (sorry I did not get her name). It is apparent that Kimpton goes out of its' way to hire qualified staff.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 19th floor as NY can be somewhat noisy. Very quiet

Green Features: See review. Kimpton's are animal friendly and I have never been disrupted by pet noise on any of my stays and yes I have been on the same floor as pet friendly rooms.
