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.

Stayed at this hotel for one night. The room was small, but comfortable. Had everything I needed and was quiet, and a great view of the Empire State Building. The price is high, but you’re paying for location. My biggest issue with this hotel was an unexpected charge when I got my credit card bill of $18.51. I called the hotel, and they said it… Read more
Stayed at this hotel for one night. The room was small, but comfortable. Had everything I needed and was quiet, and a great view of the Empire State Building. The price is high, but you’re paying for location. My biggest issue with this hotel was an unexpected charge when I got my credit card bill of $18.51. I called the hotel, and they said it was for two beers taken from the mini bar. They were very good about believing me when I said I didn’t have anything from the mini bar, and said they’d refund the amount to the card. However, I wonder how many guests would not bother to call, or would think that the charge was legitimate. This is the kind of error that should not happen. Read less

Chose this hotel as we were arriving via Amtrack to Penn Station which is a few blocks away. Overall a nice hotel in a very convenient location with 3 subway lines close by and also within walking distance to Times Square.

Chose this hotel as we were arriving via Amtrack to Penn Station which is a few blocks away. Overall a nice hotel in a very convenient location with 3 subway lines close by and also within walking distance to Times Square. Now on to the downside, (1) the lifts at this hotel are terrible: one of the the call buttons on our floor does not work and one lift vibrates heavily before it reaches ground level. (2) The holder for the hand-shower in our room is loose and would not lock which points to poor housekeeping as the issue should have been resolved prior to check-in. (3) There is a bicycle lane next to the pavement and one has to be extra careful getting in and out of cars to avoid being knocked over by cyclists. If (1) and (2) can be resolved I may have a better opinion of this hotel. Read less

Our travel agent booked a room here at our request for Nov. 14-17 NYC trip. When I arrived early, the front desk suggested lunch at one of the two restaurants at hotel.

Our travel agent booked a room here at our request for Nov. 14-17 NYC trip. When I arrived early, the front desk suggested lunch at one of the two restaurants at hotel. Nasty hostess at L'amico told me it would be a 45 minute wait even though there were 4-5 tables open right in front of me. I tried the other restaurant The Vine, with another snobby hostess and several empty tables and got the same response. Almost if eating alone..you are not welcome or seated even when you say you are a guest at the hotel. This set the tone for our one night stay! Upon checking in at 3 pm; no one disclosed any health issues at their hotel. I arrive in room and disvover on the desk a 2 page letter from hotel and NYC Health Department that Kimpton Eventi Hotel had 2 separate customers contract LEGIONAIRES DISEASE in late October!! They claim water has tested safe and guilty shower heads have all been changed..but NYC Health says DO NOT SHOWER, breathe mist..baths only!! There should be a law requiring health disclosures at time of booking and certainly at time of check in! Their offer of 2 bottles of free water and "Don't worry all is safe" were not enough to keep us there more than one night.. along with construction street noise plus the worn out furniture and false claims about 500 sq ft suite! This hotel is certainly not worth the health risk nor the price for suite! Read less

Our check-in was EXCELLENT, especially with concierge Jennifer -- she was fast, thorough, informative & friendly. Restaurants & bar service friendly, efficient & helpful beverage & dish selections. A tad noisy so conversations may be difficult in a larger group in the bar. We were given a corner room on the 22nd floor (total 23 stories tall) with… Read more
Our check-in was EXCELLENT, especially with concierge Jennifer -- she was fast, thorough, informative & friendly. Restaurants & bar service friendly, efficient & helpful beverage & dish selections. A tad noisy so conversations may be difficult in a larger group in the bar. We were given a corner room on the 22nd floor (total 23 stories tall) with grand view. We'd love to come back during the spring or summer to enjoy the outdoor dining. Safe was broken, but the repair was done with polite alacrity. Read less
