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
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 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.
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). 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.
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!
