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.

Me and my partner stayed here and we didn’t get a minute of sleep. The room was vibrating with the music being played in the neighborhood. The manager didn’t seem to care, I suppose this is a regular occurrence. Terrible customer service. Apart from that the room was okay, not small but no luxury features at all, pretty basic. We had an awful… Read more

We had an awful experience at this hotel, we could hear every single word of the clubs nearby and they went on until the early hours of the morning. A complete nightmare. I would strongly discourage any guest from staying here. Read less

I had a monster of a time in Manhattan when I stayed at Eventi!

I had a monster of a time in Manhattan when I stayed at Eventi! From the greeting at the front desk from Jennifer, who made check-in easy to the photocopies they made for my during my dinner, they outperformed my expectations The location is stellar, from my room I could easily see a gorgeous skyline and realize I was a couple blocks away from the Empire State Building. So, off I went and up to the observation deck like King Kong, except no female companion! Location allowed me to visit several trendy bars and tried Smash Burgers, all of which I've heard about and wanted to experience. Quick stop over to The Rack, right down the street and back for an evening drink at Evanti Room was modern, killer views and used the yoga mat provided in the room for my PT exercises, a bonus add on for me Then a fantastic Sunday breakfast, good food and excellent service rounded out a monster overnight in Manhattan!

This hotel met all my needs and made for the perfect vacation. The staff was amazing and made the whole experience better. Paulina who checked me in was very informative and so sweet. Jen and Victoria made my entire stay a breeze. The restaurant was amazing as well as the room service. I will definitely be returning to this hotel.

This is a decent hotel with a great location. But the management is just atrociously bad. The room had a sink that did not drain (see attached picture).

This is a decent hotel with a great location. But the management is just atrociously bad. The room had a sink that did not drain (see attached picture). We notified the front-desk and they told us someone would come fix it. Hotel claims that someone came to look at it while we were out but could not fix it. They will have to wait until the next day. While I do not understand why, but did not have much of a choice. We were not offered a chance to move to a different room. The sink blockage is so obvious, the hotel should not have given the room to anyone. No one shows up the next day. When I called the front-desk, they just said sorry we do not know what happened and will have a manager reach out to me. The manager emails--not call--email me. He said sorry we dropped the ball on this one. We will give you better service next time you stay with us. When i told him that I was still at the hotel, I wanted him to walk up to my room and apologize face-to-face and offer how can we make this right. Other top hotels i have visited have done this. Instead, he emails me back saying---oh great, come see me when you have time. Of course I did not waste my time finding him. So he said I am adding 10,000 points for the inconvenience. Only one sink in the room that does not drain is not a just an inconvenience. And by the way, no points were ever added to my account. While check-in was a breeze, I had booked a two bed room because I was travelling with a baby. We were offered a king bed instead because two bed rooms were unavailable. I understand and was okay with it. The manager claims that I should be happy I was given an upgrade. When you have to accommodate a baby in your bed--a safety concern--having a couch in your room is not an upgrade. I am platinum IHG member. IHG gives a preferential treatment to me whenever i stay at one of their properties. I usually like Kimpton hotels and get a decent treatment. . This was just such a bad experience that made me rethink about staying at any Kimpton property ever again. Hotel industry provides us with a lot of choices. Consider another property. They all charge about the same for the same level of hotel. Why risk ruining your vacation. Read less

We've just got back to the UK after spending five days in New York - our first trip to this amazing place! Celine on reception was just the best - she pointed us in the right direction for places to visit and booked a restaurant for us too! Nothing was too much trouble - it really made a difference having such a friendly hotel to stay in. The room and bathroom were immaculately clean and the bed was large and comfortable. This hotel is a short walk to the subway and so well located for all the places we wanted to visit. The restaurant on the ground floor - LAMICO is well worth a visit - the service and food is fabulous! Read less
