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.

There's a corner in Manhattan where Chelsea meets the flower district and the streets smell like a garden. Along its 6th Avenue line lies a hotel, which is home to the city's most prized lobby.

There's a corner in Manhattan where Chelsea meets the flower district and the streets smell like a garden. Along its 6th Avenue line lies a hotel, which is home to the city's most prized lobby. Equal parts luxe and seduction the lighting, leather and lure of Hotel Eventi's lobby emits a secret scent of magnetism. And though aesthetics and aroma may be what draws some in, it's the staff that keeps them there. Hotel Eventi is my favorite hotel in all of New York City – and I once stayed in 41 of the city's best boutique hotels in eight months for an article. There is only one I call home. As a creature of comfort, Eventi is an easy choice for any, but that's not what makes it home. Eventi is home because it's familial. A quality derived solely from the people who work there -- Johnny Lluberes. A man of authentic charm and character, who is as efficient as he is humble, helpful and exceedingly awesome. Victoria Tuchinsky I introduced her to my mother. An introduction I do rarely. But one-half minute spent with Victoria and one needn't wonder why. Class is difficult to describe but you know it when you meet it. Francois Etienne. My recent and first ever interaction with Francois was over the phone. Wit and service are two qualities hard achieved on their own, and almost never appearing together. Harder still is emitting not one but both over the phone. Pauline Stanisz. There is a grace that few possess, and even fewer can display while in the service of others. Pauline is one of the very few. She is as lovely as she is smart. Megan Smith made my day with a simple sentence. A talent one cannot help but applaud and admire. Malek Hasan I had never met, and within 30 seconds of doing so, had me smiling all the way to my room. But before we even walk through Eventi's door, Captain Kirk Bibby with a graciousness and ease all his own, welcomes my fiancé and me with real and genuine welcome. Every time. (to name just a few among many others.) Read less

I stayed here with my spouse for my birthday trip. The hotel restaurant, The Vine, was good with excellent customer service (given complimentary sparkling wine and waiter suggested food based on his experience). The atmosphere of the hotel in general was quiet and cozy (dim lighting, no crowds in the lobby areas). Upon check in we were upgraded to a higher floor room (22nd floor, corner room 2201) which had great views of the Empire State Building and city below. The room was functional, not very big despite the good views. The room temperature did not match the a/c readout; it got very cold at night and the blankets on the bed are not heavy or comfortable. I would suggest bringing your own blanket (BYOB). The room was clean overall, but a few hairs were left in the shower from the last guest presumably. The 'Do Not Disturb' button is a cool feature as opposed to using a door hanger. The wine hour was good as it usually is with Kimpton, and I did not visit the gym. The location was within walking distance to everything I came to do: Times Square, NYPL, Morgan Library and Museum, Bryant Park, Empire State Building, several food spots. I would choose this hotel again for a NYC stay. Read less

Stayed here for 20 nights on business, room was clean and very comfortable. Hotel restaurants and bar get very busy so book early to avoid disappointment. Very conveniently located for Penn Station and plenty of other shops and restaurants.

I like this hotel but the receptionists are not nice and unwelcoming - find this every time I stay. Other staff are good but the receptionists always desperately bad here which is disappointing for an otherwise good hotel.

We made reservations for two rooms, a king suite and double queen connected. however upon arrival, this was not the case, and told the rooms are not configured that way. Our King suite was clean, not too small, with a sliding door dividing the two rooms of the suite the bedroom with King bed and the sitting area with sleeper sofa. The bathroom was the biggest room with a great rain shower and soaking tub. Two nice sinks with plenty of counter space , plus we all liked the feature of another door to the toilet. The beds even the sofa bed were very comfortable with great pillows and sheets! The Hotel is easy walk to Madison Square Garden. Say Hi to Derek , Trevor the door men, hard working guys! From the hotel we also walked to the High Line, a renovated elevated subway line, converted to a walking path! Awesome walk among the buildings but above the traffic! Take a walk along High Line from 31street south and it leads to The Vessel another walking stairway that is several stories tall and not for the faint of heart with fear of heights! Lots to see and always plenty to do in NYC . The Kimpton does it right and they allow pets! We always enjoy a visit, but love to come home to vermont vacation dash rentals dot com is our home!
