New York’s Eventi, A Kimpton Hotel has been on Luxury Travel Advisor’s radar since March when the walls were still just concrete, veined with wires and cables. Cut to September when we were fortunate enough to stay in the finished, marble-covered product and experience the luxury service firsthand. My, how far it has come!
We stayed in room No. 2201, a Cityview King Room—all of which are on or above the 14th floor, making for classic Manhattan views. Our room looked up and down Sixth Avenue, with the Empire State Building in the forefront. Nice Touch: We were greeted in our room by a plate of fresh fruit and a complimentary bottle of red wine—a nice treat while taking in Manhattan’s notable towers. Other room features include complimentary Internet access, bath amenities from Etro and 24-hour in-room dining.
Top Digs: There are 292 rooms, including 53 suites. For your most VIP clients, we recommend the Live Suite on the 23rd (and highest) floor. This 1,685-square-foot space comes with a fully furnished living room and up to three bedrooms, all with king-sized platform beds. The Eventi Suite on the fifth floor is also one to write home about. While smaller in size than the Live Suite (1,400 square feet, to be exact), the Eventi Suite is just as luxurious—with a master suite, living room and dining room and, our favorite, an 850-square-foot private terrace.
This is not your typical New York City hotel. We love that the property has truly incorporated the city environment into its design. One of the highlights is its public plaza, which helps the hotel integrate its neighbors. This urban oasis, with public seating for both residents and guests, will be home to a 20-foot-wide multimedia art screen, which can be rented for public and private events.
The hotel has a multilevel, indoor/outdoor Food Parc, which consists of gourmet stands and stalls (think a blended burger with gourmet bacon to dim sum and wraps). Not to be overlooked, the hotel’s Bar Basque features a whiskey bar and Basque-style cuisine. As of now, guests can savor gourmet cuisine at The Café, or through in-room dining. The fifth floor wraparound verandah overlooks the plaza and Sixth Avenue. When not reserved for private events, the space provides casual outdoor seating for hotel guests. Note: Eventi hosts the New York City Wine and Food Festival, October 7-11.
We love the intimacy of the spa on the fifth floor. It comprises three treatment rooms and a menu of signature therapies. Decorative Touch: The spa has taken every detail into consideration, from its customized music selection to original artwork.
