The Eventi, A Kimpton Hotel- Cutting-edge Comfort in Chelsea
Perched at the intersection of Sixth Avenue and West 29th Street on the Avenues of the Americas, this fashionable hotel places travellers in an excellent location. Offering a calming setting away from New York's buzzing city streets, this Kimpton property is perfect for travellers looking to live it up in the city but want a relaxing haven to come back to.
We arrived before check in and the hotel concierge lets us keep our bags at the hotel while we went to explore the wonderful streets of New York. When we got back that evening to check in, there was tea, coffee and cocoa available for guests. Who doesn’t love a cup of hot Cocoa? The main reception itself was very welcoming with cosy leather seating areas to just relax after a long day exploring the avenues of NYC.
When we entered our room it was quite late so we were not expecting an upgrade but, boy did we get one. We hot woke up every morning with the sunrise complimenting New Yorks extraordinary skyline. It really was the perfect wake-up call to get up and explore this never ending city.
The room itself was extremely spacious with enough room to swing several cats. Kitted out with everything you need; a large flat screen tv, iHome docking station, mini bar and desk for working on. At the desk, there was also an Ethernet cable connection although the WiFi speed was more than acceptable for most travellers needs.
The bathroom was a dream, marbled head to toe. Featuring a huge walk-in rain shower, deep soaking tub and double sinks. In usual Kimpton style, the toiletries were high end, the towels were fluffy and the bathrobes were just perfect for a calming easy night. If you're craving a little more luxury, though, book a treatment at the Spa at the Eventi, which offers speciality treatments like "Jet Lag Recovery" and "Rock N Relax" stone massages.
The hospitality doesn’t just stop there, though, The Eventi also offers A wine happy hour between 5-6pm for guests, two distinct on-site restaurants, the family-style L'Amico or the Portuguese Lupulo restaurant and a sprawling veranda on the fifth floor, looking straight down 6th Ave. If you feeling athletic there is also a full-serviced fitness centre that also offers complimentary CoreSentrik classes that combine yoga and pilates.
The Eventi’s dynamite location is just brilliant for getting around the city. Located a 20-minute walk to Union Square (& the ever fantastic Union Square farmers market), 5-minute walk to Herald Square, 10-minute walk to Times Square, & 5 minutes (or less) walk to the 1/2/3 & N/Q/R & 4/5/6 subway lines. It’s also a very easy walk to Penn Station, which is hugely helpful when you’re dragging a suitcase to the train.
The Eventi Hotel is a real gem in the midst of manhattan with friendly staff, amazing rooms and an all round perfect atmosphere that gets our first class rating.
