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.

Great room size for nyc. Modern and new finishes still. Well located to penn station - one of the nicest non super luxury ($500) options available. Nice modern bathrooms. Solid restaurants on lobby level however not open due to pandemic I’m assuming.

5* service in the middle of the night.. thank you Wenye for going above and beyond! Being jetlagged and awake in the night is never fun but you did an amazing job of taking care of me so my stay felt personal and cared for. Hugely appreciated.

Don't book here, it is absolutely not worth the money. I paid $365 for one night to stay in a worn out, outdated, basic room with absolutely nothing tipping on the line of luxury. This is a far cry from a Kimpton property. For starters, the carpet is so gross in the room, bunched up and rippled and a very easy way to trip. The bathroom was ok,… Read more
Don't book here, it is absolutely not worth the money. I paid $365 for one night to stay in a worn out, outdated, basic room with absolutely nothing tipping on the line of luxury. This is a far cry from a Kimpton property. For starters, the carpet is so gross in the room, bunched up and rippled and a very easy way to trip. The bathroom was ok, towels were crunchy at best and very limited items like soap and shampoo. Our tablet didn't work which is how you use the TV, contact the desk etc. The bed, THE BED is horrible. Nothing more than what you would get at a Motel 6. We were not allowed access to the outdoor veranda where supposedly there is a large screen area. Only place to go outside was in the street or the front of the building. For $365 you would expect at least a bottle of water available to you in the room. Plan to go to the desk and request this where they will give you a tiny bottle of warm water. They do give you coffee in the morning, but absolutely nothing else without paying for it. Not a muffin, not a banana, not a yogurt. And to think we are charged a $20 resort fee (amenity fee for local and long distance calling as well as the gym use). Staff were generally nice but in no way did they provide excellent customer service. The hotel is dark and just didn't feel fresh or inviting outside of the lobby area. I have no doubt for less money you can find a much nicer, more updated and not so work hotel for you to enjoy your stay. Read less

This hotel is absolutely amazing, let me tell you why. The first starts with the front Lines. Derek who is a bellman/valet Took care of my car while it was parked in the underground garage and help me unload it and load it back, Jen was wonderful when booking my first time experience here at this hotel and set me up with the suite for my accommodations due to the fact that I am partially handicap, Kevin who is the front desk attendant made sure all my needs and questions were answered when I always kept coming down to the front desk to ask specific questions about the surrounding area for things to Do during my stay, And last but not least Jodi who made sure that the staff was taking care of me like I was a King, I couldn’t ask for a better stay in New York City at a beautiful hotel with an awesome view of the city as well. I will be back and I hope the staff will help me again just like they did this time for July 4th Weekend 2021. #oneofthegreatHotels Read less

Great service. Comfortable modern room with great view, 2 restaurants (did not eat there). Good location for shopping, theaters and transportation ( near MSG). Coffee in the morning at the bar. One bit of unusually good service. I picked up my stored suitcase and asked if the restaurant was open. I thought I’d charge my phone while having a glass of wine. The front desk said the restaurants were not open now (Monday 4 PM). The bell captain asked what wine I liked, brought me a Cabernet on the house and showed me where chargers are, that made my day.
