Reviewed August 29, 2010

Me and my partner stayed at Hotel Eventi this August 2010. The hotel is situated about a 10-15 minute walk from Times Square, set slightly away from the hussle and large crowds. The area is pretty safe even at night time. The hotel is immaculate and the decor is contemporary and very elegant. The rooms are stunning with large comfortable beds and floor to ceiling windows which provide good views of the city (depending on which way your room faces). Rooms are equipped with hairdryer, bath robes, room socks (although the carpet is so soft you wont really want to use these), iron and ironing board, 32-37 inch HDTV, fully stocked minibar and many other ameniities. Since the hotel is less than a year old, all the furnishings and fittings are very clean and brand new. Rooms are air conditioned and cleaned daily. The rooms have a "do not disturb" button which when pressed, will turn the room number lighted plaque outside of your door from orange to red, and you will not be able to hear the buzzer. We particularly liked the extra added touches and little things which made all the difference. After your room is cleaned, you will find a note on your bed detailing the weather conditions for the day along with a chocolate or two ! Free WiFi is also available throughout the property with excellent signal strength. Staff are very knowledgeable and helpful and very friendly. Each day between 5-6pm, a selection of wine is available to try on the 5th floor Veranda (this may not be a year round routine but was available during our stay). If you would like a guaranteed stay at a wonderfully managed and well kept hotel, then this is the place to go. Prices are expensive but well worth the cost. We would definitely visit this property again in future. One of the best hotels we have ever stayed at! Kieran & Sandi

Dear KieranUmanee,

Thank you for reviewing your recent stay at Eventi! It's great to hear that you enjoyed your visit to the hotel. I'm happy that you liked our guest rooms and the daily weather forecasts. With the unpredictable weather of the Northeast, we felt it was a little touch our guests would appreciate. It's also great that you were able to participate in our evening wine reception. And although it won't be held all year round on the Veranda due to the Winter season, the reception is offered 365 days a year so feel free to come back during the colder months as well. We're sure looking forward to seeing you again!

This is a nice new Kimpton Hotel. If you travel extensively in the US you probably know that Kimpton knows how to run a hotel, and this one is no different. The staff here seems especially accommodating and upbeat. The location is not particularly charming but it is central. The "earthy" color palate is not my favorite but it's executed effectively in the design. The rooms are big by modern NY standards, the bathroom is elegant in modern Japanese style. The only problem...this is a dog-friendly hotel and my room positively reeked of that spray that is used to mask pet odors. After a few minutes you adjust, but it's just not pleasant. Several previous reviewers have commented on the smell and I certainly know what they mean. Maybe they would've moved me to another room - I didn't ask because I was only staying two nights - but who needs the hassle? For me, this likelihood of a stinky unpleasant room is a deal-breaker.

I have just completed a 6 night stay with my 20 year old son.
We found this hotel to be in a great position and close to the subway.
The room was large enough for the two of us to share and never be in each other way. The bathroom is fantastic with a great rain head shower.
The staff are very kowledgeable and very helpful.
Could not find any faults
Love it will stay again

We enjoyed a 5 night stay last week at this new, friendly, clean Kimpton property. I never thought I would take the time to write in this venue, but I wanted to give kudos and thanks to the staff at this hotel. The concierges wear many hats there, and one in particular, Joycelynn, exemplified the service I've come to expect from Kimpton. She gave us friendly, attentive, spot-on advice, directions, and reservations. Everyone at the front desk/concierge area was good, but this women stood out!

The hotel property is located near Penn Station as advertised, but access to anywhere was very easy, and the 34th St. B or D trains were a block-and-a-half away. Taxis were abundantly available.

The rooms were comfortable, albeit on the small size you would expect for NYC. We did not have a problem with noise (9th Floor). We were on the "back side", but still satisfied. The rain shower and Etro toiletries were nice.

The 5th Floor features a modest workout room with excellent, new equipment. The outdoor lounge is located on this floor, too. The gratis wine tasting happened there, except when a private party took precedence (2 out of 5 nights). No worries; the wine just moved downstairs to the lobby.

Bottom line: If you are looking for Kimpton boutique quality at a great value in the heart of NYC (a few blocks away from the Empire State Bldg.), than this is your place. Speaking of value, another concierge et al named Brittanni took care of an issue for us. I was very impressed with the way she helped us out.

Pros: See above + the friendly, clean vibe of this new Kimpton property.
Cons: A suana/spa/hot tub/swimming pool would have been a bonus, but again, no worries since there is plenty else to occupy your time.

It's a good sign when our 13 year old says that he definitely wants to stay here again!

My first visit to this brand new hotel was June 7-11, 2010. Eventi delivers excellent service, has a hospitable staff, and exudes all the warmth and generosity of a Kimpton hotel. Upgrades? No problem. Special requests? No problem. During the June stay it was evident that many of the rooms had never been occupied. I'm pleased to say everything functioned well, room service was quick (and delicious). The rooms are well appointed and how can you complain when everything is brand new.

Fast forward to today, August 20, 2010. I'm back. Nothing has changed. Service is still impeccable, the hotel amenities and room appointments are modern enough to last for years. Yes the hotel is a tad trendy but Eventi bears the true essence of a huge hotel that maintains it's "boutiquiness" (I made that word up ya know ;-) ) that Kimptons are known for. That said, I believe Eventi will stand the test of time because it belongs to a family of hotels that has the recipe whose indgridients include upscale, warmth, service delivery, security, professionalism, and gratuitous.

The hotel is two blocks from subway stations in every direction, 3 blocks from Penn Station, 2 blocks from Herold Square below 30th street. I've finally found a hotel to call home base when I come to NYC.

My only wish was that the lobby and living room were bigger or the living room had a loft design.

We stayed here for three nights this past July. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and had a very friendly and competent person check us in. He was very professional and we instantly felt comfortable here. Upon enterring our room on the 19th floor, we were instantly impressed. Loved the view of the Empire State building and loved the comfy king size bed. Bathroom products were top quality! The room was very clean. Sleeping here was a real treat as it was super quiet, cool and comfortable. We really appreciated the daily free wine service they have from 5pm to 6pm. What a fun and cool way to relax in your hotel! The wine was very good and no questions asked when you go back for more! The employees here are very friendly and go out of their way to help you with any questions or needs you might have. We will stay at this hotel for our next trip to NYC.

Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Eventi New York, following a crossing to NY on QM2 - and we were extremely impressed with the hotel

The overall design is very modern, and the highest quality materials have been used, in order to create a striking design

The rooms are great, with very comfortable beds. The only minor issue we found with the room was with the lack of clothes storage - that said, there were 4 of us in the room, and with 2 people the storage space is probably fine

The daily wine reception was excellent, especially on the days it was held on the 5th floor verandah - which is an oasis from the madness below

Location is also great - 2 minutes from 34th, Macys, Empire State etc. There are also numerous subway stations within a few minutes walk. We used Penn which gives you access to the 1,2 and 3 which are great for getting Uptown-Downtown

The only small down points are related to the hotel being new and not quite complete:
-The restaurant is in a temporary state which didn't tempt us to eat there.
-There is also the lack of a bar - which would be great on the verandah - we would have stayed there all evening and not ventured out of the hotel! The hotel must be missing a trick here???
- We also experienced some noise from the building works both outside and inside the building. However, where we were on the back of the building, the works outside would not have woken us even though we were right above it. There was some drilling and bainging from within the hotel which did wake us when it started at 8am - but we wanted to get out and about so an 8am alarm call was not a bad thing!

Overall, a great hotel which will only get even better as it is finished
