“Wonderful space on 6th Ave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

This hotel has got it all , location, luxury, free wine afternoons and great staff
I stayed here in June 2011 for 7 nights and felt like one of the family. Rooms were spacious for new york standards with great sized bathrooms. The location on cnr 6th and 30th was close enough to walk to times square and Maceys. They also have an outdoor terrace where on one afternoon the hotel served sangrias to all guests.

I would return to this hotel in a heartbeat

I had the opportunity to stay at the Eventi with family and friends in a suite during the best time of year in NYC -- Christmastime. The hotel was beautifully decorated, and the staff was very helpful. The room was a perfect size for three people. I would wholeheartedly recommend staying at the Eventi.

We booked this hotel through Hotels.com, who misrepresented our room as a "room with a view", which was in fact not the case. Hotels.com was incompetent, and rude. They had poor customer service, and offered no way to correct their mistake other than to give ask me for more money to upgrade the room. I worked with Doris, a staff member the Eventi Hotel, who went above and beyond to give my family the room we exepected, provided amazing customer service, and was extremely professional! Hats off to her!

The room was spacious for NYC, close to many attractions and shopping, and just a very pleasurable stay. I will stay here again, and recomend this hotel to my firends and family.

Let's start with the defects: the room was way too small to accomodate 4 people, but we stayed out the entire day so it didn t matter that much; the wifi wasn t worth the 10$ per day because of the speed and ee got trapped in the elevator, but we promptly got special assistance from a technician and the security supervisor. All the rest was perfect: it's located in an area full of shops and places to eat and a 10 minutes walk from times square, room were functional with a great view and staff vere highly skilled and very curteous.

We stayed for a Xmas vacation at the Eventi.
The staff making the extra mile to greet and smile at you that you feel like returning somewhere familiar, unlike big hotels that lost the touch with the guests.
the room was very comfortable, what was lacking in the room were: bathroom amenities were mediocre. my spouse doesn't have a sensitive skin, but ended up with extremely dry scalp after shampooing with their shampoo. luckily i always bring mine. second is that the closet is uncomfortable- access is not easy if you want to hang your clothes.
but the worse is definitely the bed. because of that bed, we overslept and missed a Broadway show. the bed was heavenly.

overall speaking - the design, the ambiance, the service, the location, the hot coffee/tea with honey and lemon/chocolate in the mornings made our stay extremely joyful and memorable.

I liked this hotel, but it isn't quite the nirvana that some people describe. It's great, but they could use a bit more attention to detail.

The rooms are nice and the staff are friendly and helpful. Despite a few hiccups, I would stay here again.

Our bathroom was pretty dirty when we arrived, which is never a good thing. Tub and shower both had hair and dirt basically everywhere. We left for the day and asked them to clean it, but when we returned at night all we had was turn down service and a still dirty bathroom. It wasn't a big deal to clean it ourselves, but for the price they charge, the room should be clean when you arrive and should certainly be clean after you point out that it wasn't up to par.

My only other advice is to avoid room service. I tried twice and had two absolutely awful experiences, including waiting 2 hours for breakfast that was supposed to arrive in 30 minutes. I understand things get backed up, but we were repeatedly told that our food was on the way when it clearly wasn't. Worse, when the food arrived, it was missing part of the order as well as things like milk for coffee. We ordered breakfast at 10:15 and had to get an extended checkout because our food still hadn't arrived until well after the noon checkout time. They comped the meal, but it doesn't really excuse the repeated lies about the status of our order. Bottom line - great hotel, lousy room service, questionable housekeeping (at least in our instance). Nothing is perfect, so I'd definitely stay here again and just avoid room service (which is what you SHOULD do in NYC anyhow, but sometimes it's nice for breakfast).

Room Tip: The higher up you go, the quieter it will be.

I have stayed in many cities around the world during Christmas time and have to say service is typically lacking, no matter how fabulous the hotel. This past Christmas, my husband, twin 11 month old babies AND our dog, stayed at the Eventi in New York City and were beyond impressed by the service. It was absolutely impeccable, from our late night check in to our frenzied check out. I can go on, but there is no need. I just have to say that the service was so stellar that we were able to overlook cramming two cribs, a dog (who staff treated like Brad Pitt and even took out for a walk when we were gone for a while), and enough baggage for a round the world trip into a smallish room. We'd do it again. Eventi is very high on our list, if not highest at this point. Stay here. Seriously.
