“Consistently great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Eventi has become our NYC home away from home. Always super clean and fresh smelling rooms coupled with a friendly staff, great style, free wine hour and convenient location. A couple of very minor disappointments on this visit:
1) windows were very dirty
2) Bigelow amenities instead of Etro. I consider Etro to be higher end AND they are not made in China.
3) on site restaurants are once again in a state of flux. Staff directed us to the Breslin at the Ace Hotel for a great brunch. Thanks!

I've stayed at the Eventi several times and have to say, I felt the service a bit off this last trip. No doubt, the hotel is in a great location. A perfect midtown location. But, I found the front desk to be less than responsive and the room to be a bit tired. I stayed in a suite, and by NYC standards, it had a great amount of space. However, the furnishings looked worn. However, it was clean. All in all, a nice place to stay, but certainly no WOW factor here.

I has never heard of the Eventi until a few days before our visit. My GF, who hates almost all hotels chose it and despite it being in a location I would never have chosen it was the hotel I booked. I am beyond pleased that I did! The location was perfect for our brief stay. Convenient for everything! The staff was exceptional. Our corner room had killer views of the ESB and the Freedom Tower down 6th. The price was not cheap but it was fair for the room and the view. I'm a convert and my GF was happy! Life is good. We do not get to NYC too often but when we do we will be staying at the Eventi!

Room Tip: Request a corner room on a high floor. The views are amazing!

Great Service Clean Hotel Good Food

We just spent a night here and it was great! The service was great, the hotel was clean, and we where surprised at how good our room service was! I mean it was still room service but a good dinner in bed beats dinner out on a busy NY night. It was a special day for us too and when we walked into the room there was a bottle of wine, chocolates, and a hand written note on the desk! How Cool!

We will be coming back!

Room Tip: We had a room on the 16th floor and could see the empire state building!

I am a convert. For years I have been coming to NY with children for weekends and short trips and always stayed at The Palace Hotel, which we loved. Last summer when our daughter took a short course at FIT, we looked for a hotel close to the school and ended up at Eventi. In several trips since, we have become extremely fond of the hotel both for the warm and helpful staff and for the superb location--a few blocks to the train station and easy access to various parts of the city. After more than one anxious afternoon at the Palace waiting (several times for nearly an hour) during rush hour to get a cab to the train station, being at Eventi and simply walking 3 blocks to catch a train is unbelievably stress-reducing. The rooms are clean and modern with
extremely comfortable beds. One bedroom suites with lounge area are excellent for privacy and really provide a spacious amount of room for a Manhattan hotel. Views from floor to ceiling windows are also quite nice.

Room Tip: One bedroom suite with sofabed in 2104 is superb.

A wonderful boutique hotel in literally the heart of Manhattan. I like how the Times Square area is about a mile away - close enough to walk to (15-20 mins) or a quick cab ride, but far enough away from the chaos of that area. Become a kimpton member and get some extra perks.
Staff is very nice and will quickly check you in and out.

Walls are paper thin, so I could hear the recap of the gals' next door evening when they came back after a night out, but I have no problem falling asleep so it's all good.

Lovely hotel in a great location. We were able to walk everywhere. Rooms were well appointed and very comfortable. Really comfortable bed and pillows. Very clean. The front desk and concierge staff were knowledgable and helpful. This highline is 3 blocks away and there are a lot of places to eat nearby. Would most definitely stay there again.
