“Excellent location and experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

Eventi is very trendy but more importantly ticks a lot of boxes. Brilliantly centrally located, you can walk to The Empire State Building, Macys, and Madison Square Gardens. Rooms are large for New York with great bathrooms. Make sure you book a room on a high floor and you will also have a quiet stay. Staff are helpful and actually want to assist you. Finally the free wine & cheese reception at 1700 is a nice touch. Only slight grip is the breakfast, not cheap and not amazing. Personally I would go out, recommend the Blue Ribbon Bakery in the West Village, amazing eggs Benedict or The Nomad Hotel is only a couple of blocks. Booking at both essential.

I'm used to tiny rooms and tiny bathrooms when I come to New York, but the Eventi was a nice surprise. It had the Kimpton charm and very spacious rooms. The bathroom was amazing, with one of those rain style shower heads. I wasn't banging my elbow on something constantly while showering. The bed was very comfortable and the staff was great. I will definitely be back.

I really enjoyed my stay and the Inner Circle touches were amazing. Kimpton has a GREAT loyalty program and my Inner Circle tier was recognized several times during my stay (staff actually got really excited about my status which made me feel genuinely appreciated!). The staff were very friendly and professional. My room was beautiful and spacious for NYC standards (1 bd suite). It was well soundproofed, the bed was comfy, and the bathroom was huge an well lit for putting on make-up. Housekeepers were efficient and even left friendly notes.
I had room service and it was super quick and tasted good.
Subway was a very close walk. Tons of restaurants and shops nearby. I am a serious hotel snob and quite picky but also ‘reasonably’ price and value–sensitive (the most difficult combo) and this is a great value exchange. I think I have found my NYC staple!

I agree with other reviewers about the Eventi's staff low effort. I'm an Inner Circle member and am extremely brand loyal to Kimpton. I've stayed at the Eventi several times. The location is good and I do really like the bathrooms. The restaurant is average and I feel like the location of the wine hour is a little weird. They only ever do the minimum in terms of upgrade and really nothing in terms of amenities (once I received a bottle of water and chips). From now on (including later this month), I'm staying at the Refinery. They should sent the Eventi staff to the Palomar-Chicago for training.

nicNC - We messaged you privately also, but wanted you to know service is all we care about. Glad to read you like our location and our rooms, and good news is since your stay with us last year we have a new management team running our second floor restaurant! Yes we do host wine hour in a variety of locations to try to switch it up. Anyways hope to see you again - Kimpton loves you and so do we!

The location is great. The room had plenty of closet space. However, housekeeping needs to be trained about proper room cleaning. I can only wonder when was the last time the room we stayed in was dusted. Items from previous guest were on the room floor when we checked-in, they were on the floor five days later when we checked-out. Also note, there is construction next to the hotel. On a positive note, the front desk staff is friendly and helpful.

Went to New York for a mini-break and tried out yet another Kimpton, its great to see that Kimpton's in New York have the same sort of relaxed feel as those in the North West. We were allocated a great room with a view of the Empire State building which combined with the snow on the streets led to a great New York experience.

The staff are superb, very helpful, our original room smelled of smoke and they moved us quickly, apologetically and with the upgrade to the room we got. Service is about what happens when things don't go so well.

Room Tip: Ask to see the Empire State building
