This glass-and-steel tower on a roaring stretch of Sixth Avenue is easy to spot for its rows of neat shrubs and constantly revolving doors. Inside, the enormous lobby is kept cozy with carved wood panels, red marble floors, and a genuinely welcoming staff. The check-in desk is in front of a giant red velvet curtain, from behind which peeks a tiny bit of a Renoir-like painting of a blushy female nude—a coy touch that’s echoed across the property. Ride up the elevator and the playful artwork fades into a very Manhattan palette of grays and blacks. Japanese panels and doors line one side of the 292 guest rooms, each of which has kingsize beds, cushioned headboards and wall-to-wall windows that open the room up to the city. The signature restaurant, The Vine, serves farm-to-table American fare (eggplant caponata crostini, Yellowtail crudo, wood oven roasted chicken etc.) in its pretty indoor-outdoor dining room. The 1,000-square-foot fitness center is open round the clock and outdoor group fitness classes are available occasionally. There’s also a full spa offering massages, facials and even jet-lag recovery. This being a Kimpton hotel, kids and pets are welcomed with personalized gifts and amenities.
In the Area
While the hotel’s immediate vicinity isn’t the prettiest, you’re a short walk from all the restaurants, galleries and nightlife in Chelsea and the lights of the theater district Times Square. For a dose of retail therapy, take your plastic downtown to Meatpacking and hit Diane von Furstenberg’s flagship and such designer stores as Yigal Azrouel, Carlos Miele and Alexander McQueen. If you’d prefer more culinary indulgences, head to Chelsea Market and gather picnic essentials among the cheesemongers, lobster purveyors, bakers and gelato makers before checking out the sunset views of the Hudson from your perch above the city on the High Line, a park built on elevated railway lines.
How to Get There
I love Kimpton hotels so I wasn’t shocked at how cool and great this hotel was. The rooms are spacious, especially for NY standards, and I absolutely loved the bathroom. The bar area is fantastic and a cool area to hang out. Great location! Close proximity to a bunch of bars and restaurants and walked to Rockefeller Plaza Times Square and Central Park (wear comfy shoes!). Front desk is friendly and helpful. Will certainly be back!
It is so refreshing to be able to stay at a place and know that you are going to have a very pleasant stay. Hotel Eventi always comes through and makes my stay special each time. It is the only hotel in NYC to stay at. The staff is so welcoming and succeed in making each guest feel like a VIP.
We needed a hotel to accommodate us and our 2 dogs. The pups were travelling all the way from Australia and we stopped by NYC for holiday/transit. Kimpton Eventi was very accommodating, provided us with 2 dog bowls and bed (very thoughtful). Although, we were only given 1 dog bed, not sure if it’s a standard but anyway not a big deal. Kimpton is not fussed about size at all (we have a frenchie and a bull terrier), all of us felt welcome. The hotel itself is very clean, comfortable and cozy. Bathroom amenities were excellent. The location was great, 10mins walk to a dog park and really easy to find delicious food nearby. There is a pet shop across the street on the next block, that was handy and they were nice people too. Would definitely come back in the future with or without our doggos. Thank you!
Stayed 3 nights with our two teenagers in a Premier one bedroom suite which provides a king bed with a separate area with a sofa bed and chair. Two tvs and a larger bathroom with dual vanities along with a spa tub and shower.
The rooms were very small but it is NY so no real complaint there. Bed was comfortable but not fabulous and the bathroom was very nice and spacious although the door to the private toilet area did not close properly.
It was scorching when we were there and the AC wasn't working properly at the start. This was addressed quickly and although we did have to turn it on/off at times to get it going, wasn't a major concern and the main thing is that it got it working.
Nice city view from the floor to ceiling windows and although there certainly was some street noise, once again, it's NYC, it really wasn't too bad.
Beautiful lobby area and very nice restaurant up front which we didn't go to but was always crowded. We did have desert one night at the restaurant in the back and it was pleasant.
Front desk, bell and room attendants were all very kind and efficient.
Awesome location, lots of action in the Chelsea area and near many attractions and not much farther from many others as well as very close to the subway. We walked, cabbed and subwayed with no issues.
Overall a very nice stay at the Eventi!
My friend and I stayed at the Kimpton Eventi to celebrate her graduation from medical school. Eventi pulled out all the stops! Our check in began with Gia at the front desk She was a doll! We are vegan and she recommended a bunch of restaurants to check out. We then enjoyed the happy hour - and let me tell you, the wine is top notch! We arrived to our room, only to be surprised with cupcakes, flowers and champagne! Gia is the best. We will definitely be back and will only stay here when we travel to NY (which is quite often). Also Gillian, one of the other staff members, was so welcoming and sweet. Overall, we had a great stay in NY thanks to Eventi! See you next time :)
