Located between the NoMad and Chelsea neighborhoods, the hotel’s new interiors feature an energetic atmosphere reflective of Manhattan, balanced with feelings of peace and elegance.
“We are incredibly excited to debut Eventi’s enhanced and updated guest rooms to new and returning guests just as New York City gets ready to kick off the thrilling fall season,” said Daniel Entenberg, general manager, Kimpton Hotel Eventi. “Our new guest rooms, Chef Tourondel’s talents, and close proximity to phenomenal city sights make Eventi the perfect New York City homebase.”
Each loft-like space, ranging between 275 and 1,685 square feet, includes enhancements like fresh carpeting, new wall treatments, drapery and new furnishings like beds, desks, sofas, lounge chairs and rugs. The spaces also feature upgraded in-room entertainment, as well as plush Frete linens, Atelier Bloem bath products, and floor-to-ceiling windows for endless natural light and views of the Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden and High Line Park.
Each of the hotel’s 55 specialty suites also received renovations, with new furniture, color schemes and light fixtures. Within each suite, guests find a Jacuzzi tub, expansive private balcony, sleeper sofa, separate parlor and pool table. New artwork curated by Soho Myriad graces the halls of Eventi, bringing more of Manhattan to the heart of the property.
