We stayed at the Eventi for 5 nights and absolutely loved it.
From check in, where Kevin went above and beyond to accommodate us and finding cupcakes and a welcome card in our room for our son who was visiting NYC for the first time (thanks Sarah!) - it was those consistent little touches that made our stay wonderful.
The hotel is wonderful - very conveniently located to all major attractions - and I would highly recommend it for a stay. The room was spacious and comfortable.
The only thing that was slightly inconvenient was that housekeeping did seem to come quite late in the day, so if we came back for a little rest, the room wasn't made up yet, but don't let that be a discouraging factor.
Choose the Eventi, you won't be disappointed :)

Naaz2544 - Couldn't agree with your more - those little touches of awesome customer service mean the most! Kevin and Sarah are such great people, and we really appreciate your kind words about them. Please feel free to schedule a time for Housekeeping service so that we can knock it out of the park for you during your next stay!

The staff went above and beyond to be helpful. I enjoyed the terrace and the bar. The rooms are very comfortable and the decor is superb. The location is accessible to subway so it is very easy to travel pretty much anywhere in the city. The rooms are very clean and actually a large for a NYC room. You can't go wrong with this hotel selection.

Eventi and it's staff delivered all that it promises. A boutique experience in a big city. Clean and well appointed rooms, friendly service and more.

We booked a standard King and very much appreciated the upgrade to a King Deluxe for our anniversary. For NYC standards, the room was large which is not always easy to come by. The bathroom is beautiful and the room is modern and clean.

Directly outside of their bar on floor 2 is an outdoor lounge overlooking a big outdoor tv screen - this was such a great place to hang out and have a drink or even order food. We enjoyed our wine out there from the complimentary wine hour and then after dinner ended up enjoying more drinks out there instead of going to a rooftop bar. Bar service was quick and attentive.

The hotel is great but service was even better. The staff were friendly, pleasant and always willing to help. We requested a few things for the room, including a coffee maker, and it was all delivered quickly.

Thanks to all for making our anniversary stay memorable and for the fantastic service!

Happy to stay again or recommend to others.

At street level the Eventi is surrounded by scaffolding, so you don't see much when you arrive. The lobby is narrow but the welcome at the check-in desk is friendly and sincere. Adjacent to the front desk is free wine-tasting from 5-6 PM and free coffee in the morning. The wine was not bad, but the coffee was not very hot.

My room was pleasant and made efficient use of a New York-sized space. The window was floor-to-ceiling and the room colors were beige and gray. The desk was large enough to work at and the chair was OK. Wifi was not free, which is crazy in this day and age. Bed was fine with lots of pillows. The bathroom was small but there was a wooden Japanese-type stool in the spacious shower and the shower was waterfall. I liked the art: line drawings on glass in both the bedroom and the bathroom. The robes were thick and comfortable and there was not only a yoga mat in the closet, but also enough room (barely) to use it.

The meeting room was just the right size for our group of about a dozen. The AV equipment worked flawlessly and the food at the breaks, and at lunch, was excellent (and healthy).

The hotel is located in a part of New York (30th at 6th) where I had not often gone. Korea Way is nearby, as is the flower district. Tourist areas such as Times Square are within walking distance. The hotel's proximity to Penn Station worked out well for me. Going to JFK airport on a Friday afternoon in the summer usually involves huge traffic delays, but I walked to the station, took the Long Island Railway to Jamaica Station, transferred to the train that services the airport terminals, and arrived at United Airlines in an hour from the hotel door.

In summary, Eventi hits all the right notes for me, excellent value, friendly service, interesting and convenient location.

Room Tip: Empire State building is on the east side, if you want to look at that.

We stayed at a Kimpton hotel in Philly and loved it SO much that we decided to stay here for a quick NYC trip. This hotel is a 10-15 minute walk from Times Square, handy to Penn Station, and -- most importantly -- quiet!!! We usually stay in Times Square, but took a chance, and I'm SO glad we did. Staff was amazing -- we had our son with us, so requested a goldfish in the room when we arrived, his own little bathrobe, and they brought cupcakes and candy to us the first night we were there. Room service first night was slow, so they (at their suggestion) removed the charge! Spa was lovely - friendly, personable staff who accomodated me pretty quickly for a night-time massage, which was much-needed after a day of walking in NYC. The bar/lounge was such a great atmosphere to meet-up with a friend for drinks (YUM on the popovers -- SOOO amazing!). Quirky decorations worth walking around the hotel to see what is there. Take a trip to the bathrooms on the meeting floors - even if to just look at the couches and decor. We will definitely come back here -- or try another Kimpton hotel -- next time we are in NYC. Thanks so much everyone for your hospitality and for going out of your way to make this a great trip for our little family!

Room Tip: Found that the price for the executive suite was much better than in Times Square, but location was...
