As a Hilton Hhonors member, I usually stay in the Hilton just off Times Sq (41st/42nd Street) but the Eventi was booked through eBookers and for 5 nights as well as transatlantic flights, the price of the Hilton simply couldn't compare.
I was a bit apprehensive about staying there given that it's a new hotel (for me) and had high standards to live up to. Coupled with the fact I had to pay in advance, well... as I said I was apprehensive. But there really was no need to be. My stay there was pretty damn near perfect, which is VERY impressive, especially given the cost.
Location wise, this is on 6th and between 30th and 31st, which is a pretty decent location - the nearest subway is 3 blocks away downtown or 4 blocks away uptown, which means you can pretty much get to anywhere you want with just a short walk. For me, it's far enough away from any one major tourist spot to avoid crowds yet close enough not to be a hassle to get there.
The hotel itself is clean and modern. Check in was easy and the staff were exceptionally friendly. Room was good (a little on the small side), but had floor to ceiling windows overlooking 6th avenue with a view of the Empire State. The room was modern with flat screen TV (plenty of channels) and free Wifi (which you need to provide with loads of personal/work details if you want to avail of it).
I didn't eat in the hotel at all during the trip nor did I drink in the bar - I did go down one evening but it was crammed full of people, so I left.
The hotel was everything I needed. A good central location on the island, clean, warm, bright and comfortable to both sleep in and indeed pass away a few hours in. Even if it was the same price as the Hilton, I think I'd most likely choose this one again. The fact that it's MUCH cheaper, makes that decision a no-brainer.
Thank you Eventi
