Beautiful brand new hotel, the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Close to subway so easy to get around. Staff very helpful and always had a smile. Free champagne reception every evening. Would definately stay there again.

We got an excellent preview rate. The room was a bit tight for two adults and two children but fine for a few days. Bathroom was great. Our room didn't have the best view, but we enjoy NYC water towers so that was fine too. There was some construction going on but we didn't hear a thing (from floor 10).
The veranda is a great venue for all sort of events. The hotel is all new and shiny. Too trendy for our taste, but super if you like that sort of hotel. Staff is very friendly, smiling and helpful. Location is not pretty but as long as you're close to a subway station, you can go anywhere. We even walked from the West Village after dinner. As said, location is not pretty but it is convenient and two blocks from Penn Station. We did not get the goodnight chocolate and the weather report as others did. Had to ask for the Kimpton gift for the kids since they were expecting it and nobody offered it. Maybe that was because of our great rate.

This is a very nice brand new Kimpton hotel , on 6th Ave and 30th, away from the hustle and bustle of midtown NYC. We took advantage of their preview rates and booked a double queen room which was a very decent size for a family of 4. The room was on the 19th floor facing back( little to no noise from outside, just one occasion when other hotel guests in the corridor woke us up at 4 a.m) and was decorated in a contemporary elegant feel with subdued, relaxing browns. The beds were very comfortable and the view from the floor- to- ceiling windows pleasant for those who enjoy urban landscapes, as we do.The bathroom was a particular pleasure, and it was devine to step out of the marble walk-in shower into one of the robes provided.
All of the staff we encountered were extremely friendly. We too were conspicuously tourists but did not experience any of the coldness that one reviewer has complained of. On the contrary, I found that despite the Eventi being an upmarket hotel, we never felt out of place. A special mention to Kirk,who helped us with our bags and to the ex-Yugoslavian waiter ( I'm sorry to say that I didn't note his name) who made our 'solitary' dining room experience feel very cosy and intimate .The hotel restaurant is not in its fully operational form as yet, but we had a very good meal there and were glad to have the place all to (f)ourselves.
We only made the complimentary 5 p.m wine-tasting once in our 5 night stay, and unfortunately the weather was not good enough for us to sit out on the lovely 5th floor terrace that we'd checked out on arrival. It is obviously a very appreciable touch and seems to be popular with many hotel guests.
Finally, as Kimpton in Touch members, we took advantage of the free in-room wi-fi to Skype home to France, which was most appreciated, instead of having to shout into a public payphone over the street noise.
To sum up, this is an extremely comfortable, relatively well-placed hotel ( we used the 28th street station the most) for which we paid considerably lower prices than the rack rate. If you can get a decent price, then do not hesitate an instant, and if you are not/do not mind paying the full price, it's a great hotel too. I'm sure that it'll even be excellent once the food court and street-level huge screen terrace is up and running.
I know we'd love to come back the next time we're in NYC.

My boyfriend and I live in NYC and try to take "staycations" a few times each year to try out new and intriguing hotels in the New York area. We absolutely loved this property! The hotel has a theme of nature and secrets with half wrapped pillars, sensual and varied textures throughout the hotel (velvet sofas, unexpectedly soft carpet, Frette sheets, cabinets whose interiors can be glimpsed through peepholes, etc.) The fitness center was fantastic with unexpected items like medicine balls and unusually good quality and variety of equipment. The fifth floor balconies are pleasant to hang out on, especially with a glass of the free sangria that the hotel provides between 5 and 6. We had a room on the 17th floor and the views of the Empire State Building and morning sunlight were gorgeous. We also easily walked to restaurants in both Grammercy and Chelsea and were near to loads of good shopping (the hotel is building it's own small park next door but the immediate block is a bit sad in appearance). Overall, this was a wonderful experience that we'd love to repeat.

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.

Thank you for your constructive feedback. We hope to see you at Eventi again.

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
