I have nothing but good things to say about the hotel. Friendly and helpful staff, very nice rooms, good food, fun bar. Only downside is the location. Not really Chelsea, as advertised, and unless one is going to Macy's or the ESB, the immediate neighborhood leaves something to be desired. But it is central, near Penn Station, and close enough to the theaters and to Chelsea, Union Square, etc. that it can be a good base for touring.

Room Tip: The back of the hotel is quieter, and it is far enough from the next building over that you don'...

I stayed here over President's weekend with my two sons ages 12, 14. We stayed in an executive suite which offered more space for watching TV and sleeping. The room and decor were modern and cozy, and our room and view were wonderful on the 18th floor.
We were greeted by Patrick at the front desk, who kindly remembered my sons' names (I had sent via email prior to arrival) and even sent up a complimentary bottle of sparkling cider with two cupcakes to welcome them (too bad Mom did not get one). The housekeeping staff was prompt and thorough- coming to turn down the sleeper sofa within moments of a phone call.
We especially enjoyed the hotel restaurant Humphrey. We had lunch and breakfast there and the taste, quality and presentation were super. The restaurant staff, especially Jaman, was also attentive and accommodating. The hotel location is excellent for walking about too. We could walk north or south to touristy areas, as well as catch the subway when we needed to.
Since I am a Kimpton loyalty club member my WiFi was free- not sure how that would be for all guests (I really don't like paying for WiFi)

Room Tip: High rooms has little noise

Here at the Eventi now. Rooms were ready at 3 pm when we arrived. A few minor blips in my room taken care of expertly and immediately, small fridge for my water bottles when the minibar was not functioning delivered within a minute, extra hangers delivered, even defeathering of room pronto with two housekeepers who finished in a flash.

Great beds, bedding, towels. Noisy toilet that maintenance took care of, and had extra waters brought up for our inconvenience.

Yolanda and Rana in guest services has been an angel taking care of what we need. Kudos to them. Antonio in engineering, so helpful.

Our daughter arrived without her luggage and there is a huge laundry list to items the hotel offers to guests if requested, complimentary of course. She will get her bag tomorrow but what a It was a huge relief to know these things are available, instead of running around the city for these items.

The front desk has been professional and patient with my room location requests. The doormen are friendly and always there to get the door open.

The room is comfortable, nice shelves inside the closet. Wonderful shower and magnifying mirror.

I love the Empire State view from the 18 th floor (pet free floor requested due to allergies).

Location extremely convenient to just about very subway line. Also within walking distance of things we have planned. Very quick and affordable cab fares to Murray Hill, Greenwich Village, Central Park. A cinch to hail cabs from the front of the hotel.. This particular location in midtown is so centrally located, we are able to do multiple things, and our large party is able to split up and go our our own ways, then reconvene as a group for more activities.

This location is making the cold rainy weather easier to deal with for sure, along with the umbrella that is provided in our room.

Could not ask for a better hotel at this price point. Got a very good price by booking as a Kimpton in touch member. Beat every price I found online.

We will be back to this hotel without doubt.

Booked this hotel on Sniqueaway.com (which is where I have been finding great deals on Kimpton Hotels) what a great choice!! The entire staff wished me a Happy Birthday upon checking in!! Once we got to our room a bottle of champagne was delivered compliments of Eventi!! The staff were always courteous and attentive!! Bed was ohh so comfortable and the rain shower and bathroom was spacious, even for a New York Hotel!!!

FREE WINE HOUR everyday was very nice and a great way to meet new friends!!

We left some belongings at a restaurant in Little Italy the night before we were leaving, the concierge ( wish I remembered his name, but he told me that he studied at the Pittsburgh Art Institute) offered to go to the restaurant when he got off work to get them and send them to us!! Now that is what service is all about!!

I cannot say enough about the service at this Hotel as well as any other Kimpton Hotel in which we stayed!! Kimpton gets what service is all about!!

Room Tip: For a better view ask for a room on a higher floor

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon and the staff were fantastic. We arrived to champagne with a handwritten note. Although we had visited New York before the staff gave us brilliant recommendation and booked tables and taxis for us. Really lovely.

This is the second Kimpton we've stayed in, and we are starting to love this hotel chain. They always offer excellent service, and great facilities, including the popular "wine hour" everyday. What a great idea! We stayed in the King Deluxe room, after staying in that room in Washington. Typically, as is normal with New York hotel rooms, the room was about half the size of the Washington room - BUT actually a great size for New York! The bathroom was huge, and beautiful. The bed was so comfortable I wanted to take it home with me. And nice touches in the rooms such as the chair lamps, and reading lights were appreciated.

The location is good if you want to sightsee, with many sights within walking distance and it suited us as we were with family spending their first time in New York - but it isn't in my favourite neighbourhood in New York. The surrounding few roads are a bit run down for midtown, though they are perfectly safe, and there are lots of good place for coffee!

The staff were great, and it really is a lovely hotel to stay in, and a great chain - free coffee, free wine - and joining the Kimpton Loyalty scheme gives you free wifi and money off the mini-bar! Would definitely recommend.

What can I say, I really loved this place.
If you're looking for a little quieter location, away from the hustle and bustle of Times Square, this is a great choice.
Service was great, rooms are very nice and comfortable, and I just love the intimate feel of this botique hotel, versus a busier, large hotel.
I hope I can afford to stay here again!
