Kimpton Hotel Eventi

Midtown, New York

The hotel

It may sit in one of the world’s priciest zip codes, but the radically revamped Kimpton Hotel Eventi has taken over an entire block of Manhattan – proudly showing off that fact with a wall of street-level windows giving passers-by glimpses of its dining and drinking venues. Of course, as a guest, you get to experience the glitzy world beyond those windows (and beyond the view-grabbing floor-to-ceiling windows in every guestroom). Part chic hotel, part art gallery (both in keeping with its artsy Chelsea address), its new lobby feels more like a designer’s living room thanks to the fashion-forward furniture, coffee table books, and warmly lit artworks. And, within four blocks of the Empire State Building, The High Line, and Macy’s, there’s no shortage of dining outside, but Chef Laurent Tourondel has made ‘dining in’ a must, with his Italian-influenced and industrial-styled L’Amico and The Vine.

First of all, the staff is extremely courteous and responsive. And I had a high floor room that was quiet and had a nice view. My complaint is that this hotel does not offer room service and not only that they don't offer service to bring ice to your room.

First of all, the staff is extremely courteous and responsive. And I had a high floor room that was quiet and had a nice view. My complaint is that this hotel does not offer room service and not only that they don't offer service to bring ice to your room. You have to travel to the 5th floor and fill up a bag (not even a bucket) of ice from a machine that is not sanitary. While this is obviously a first-world problem, it's not acceptable for a luxury hotel. I've been traveling during covid and never seen this. In addition to having to go the 5th floor for ice, the ice is not a dispenser it is a machine and you have to use the same scoop that all customers use. While it's fairly clear that covid is not transmitted by surfaces, this is still not sanitary and unacceptable. Read less

We recently stayed at the Eventi for the second time. Once in 2018 and the most recent in October 2021, while the pandemic was still alive and well in Manhattan.

We recently stayed at the Eventi for the second time. Once in 2018 and the most recent in October 2021, while the pandemic was still alive and well in Manhattan. I love most of the Kimpton Hotels for their service, eclectic decor and the love of dogs. I had 2 teenagers, a husband and a dog in tow. The rooms were really nicely sized, full amenities and the hotel staff checked in on us regularly. We were in NYC in July of 2021 and that was a disaster. We stayed at a former Kimpton hotel and the service was poor, the rooms not well maintained and we won't be going back anytime soon. But the Eventi has restored my confidence in trips to NYC for shopping, dining and a Broadway show. It helps that Kimpton is now part of IHG and can leverage the services of a much bigger chain. The restaurant was opened, there was still coffee and tea available in the morning and free wine at 5PM. And there was still valet service for my car. We'll be back! Read less

Phenomenal service, decor, location. They offered yoga mats in the rooms, and they let us use two house bikes me and my teens used to ride around the city. Free coffee and wine at happy hour. My room had a view of the Empire State building. Jodi at the front desk was so helpful, friendly to us and called my room to make sure we were enjoying it.… Read more

Amazing checkin with Marilyn and it only got better from there. Housekeeping, security, and the evening front desk crew (Jennifer and Emily) were just as great and the finish level and amenities are top notch. This place deserves a “hidden gem” status. You’d pass right by if you weren’t looking for it. Not pretentious at all. Pretty understated in… Read more

Like any hotel, there are always a mix of positive and negative experiences. It happens. For my wife and I, we stayed 4 nights over Labor Day weekend. We were celebrating our 35th anniversary plus being the 20 year anniversary of 9/11, wanted to revisit and experience some different things. I'll be honest, the main reason I selected this hotel was because my wife asked for a soaking tub. The Kimpton has them! I'm IHG and booked with points. Check-in was early, so they stored our luggage and recommended a lunch place. All the staff were helpful and pleasant. Options for daily service, just have to tell them. Dine at their restaurant L'Amico one night - fantastic - great food and great service. Vines has free coffee in the morning and limited food option, so its just ok. You're within walking distance of Empire State building which also means bus and subway. Herald Square, Macy's is just a couple blocks away. You could walk to Times Square if you wanted. Overall - no complaints at all. It was a great experience. Read less
