My wife and I stayed for 5 nights at the Eventi back in December 2011 to do some shopping and generally soak up the New York Christmas atmosphere on our was back to the UK from trip in Central America.
As many people have pointed out the location is fantastic. We've been to NYC several times but have never stayed south of about 46th street before but this location was by far the best one we've had. Easy walking distance to shopping on 5th & 6th avenues, big touristy sites Times Square, Rockefeller etc but also the bars and restaurants in the East/West Villages.
The hotel itself is beautiful and on arrival we were greeted by a very friendly member of staff upgraded to from King Room to a Cityview King Room. I know next time I'll pay the difference, the floor to ceiling windows gave a amazing view across the south of the city including the Empire State building (sorry the picture quality of the room views aren't the best.) I'm sure the King Room would have been great but the free upgrade was much appreciated.
The room wasn't huge (to be expected in NYC) but was very nice. The bed was very comfortable and the shower in the bathroom was ace.
As always with Kimpton the wine hour was great little bonus and the wines we were served were delicious.
This was our 5 stay and a Kimpton hotel but was the best yet, highly recommended.
One thing the hotel is very close to Penn Station (5 minute walk) and I'd recommend getting the train into the city via Newark airport. I have previously got a taxi and paid $70+ for a very long and tedious drive into the city. The train took less the half the time of the taxi and was $50 cheaper for the two of us.
