Eventi - a Kimpton Hotel
Every aspect of the reception was spot on. The food was delicious and everything went off without a glitch (or we weren't aware of any if there were). We couldn't be more pleased with the Eventi staff.

I found planning our wedding from away was made so much easier when dealing with the catering manager assigned to our event. She went above and beyond and was always able to make suggestions when we were having trouble finding a vendor (florist, musician) or had any questions at all. She was incredibly helpful, always answered my e-mails filled with numerous questions and was an absolute pleasure to deal with.
The only reason we wouldn't rate a 5 across the board is we had a little difficulty with the room booking. We didn't understand that getting a block of rooms and offering this room rate and booking link to our guests would result in a higher rate than if they booked online directly. I can understand this if guests need to call, have particular issues, if you have a large group and need to ensure rooms etc. but our guests simply called to book a room or booked online through our room block. This price differential was not explained to us and we were disappointed that some of our guests paid more than others for an identical room. If we had known this upfront, we simply would have suggested booking with the hotel direct as we had a very small group and could have easily done this. That said, the rooms were fantastic and other than this small issue, we heard nothing but great reviews from our guests as well.
As for the wedding itself - it was perfect!! The food was absolutely amazing, the space was beautiful, everything was timed perfectly, there was never an empty glass for those who were interested and we danced the night away. Everyone had a great night and we're very thankful to the Eventi staff for making our special day truly...
I could not speak highly enough of the Eventi Hotel where we not only got married but also stayed for a number of nights in the Veranda Suite. The staff were amazing to deal with, especially in the lead up to the wedding. As I am from Australia, I was trusting the staff in this New York hotel to give me not only advice on the wedding and accommodation, but also local tips and vendor information. The day itself was gorgeous and I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful location - Everyone commented what a fabulous venue it was and how friendly and helpful the staff were. I would recommend this hotel to anyone interested in a beautiful NYC wedding!
We had our wedding at the Eventi July 2012 and it was amazing. From our first visit in February to the actual event we had the best service imaginable. We had 30 guests travel from Florida, Virginia, and Washington state to join in the wedding and everyone raved about the hotel. Our four year old son was treated like a king during he stay and he loved it!
We had looked at many venues in New York and none of the ones we looked at compared in value and beauty.
The evening of the actual wedding we were waited on perfectly and the staff left NOTHING to desire. The food was amazing and every detail was met.
The only downfall we can find is that for us marriage is once in a lifetime....so we can not go back to the Eventi and do it again:-)
If you are traveling to New York to have a wedding we would recommend this hotel time and time again. Really you must check it out!!!!
My wedding reception was held here, at the beautiful Eventi Hotel, on May 5, 2012. Everything from the initial meeting with Lisa to look over the venue to the actual reception went off without a hitch. Everyone was fully accomodating to not only myself, but to my guests as well. The hotel itself could not be more beautiful, combing a mix of modern and elegance, and the food is literally to die for. We went with the steak and chicken as main entrees and received rave reviews from all of our guests. My favorite part of the whole night? The cocktail hour on the terrace. Gorgeous views, awesome food, and just an overall cozy atmosphere. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone that is looking to plan a wedding (or ANY event!). We loved it so much we are planning on staying the weekend of our first anniversary!
Tim and I had our wedding at the Eventi Hotel in New York City, and it was just perfect! The planner, Lisa Benoit, could not have been nicer or more responsive, she made the planning process a delight, easy and fun. From planning all the way through the actual event, everyone involved was extraordinarily friendly, helpful and flexible. Our guests all commented on how elegant the space, the ceremony and reception were and how seamlessly the event was run. Many called it the "Best Wedding Ever" and would like to have their own weddings at the Eventi! Kudos to you and your staff, and many thanks for making it such a special night.
Beautiful Hotel! Food was amazing! A little pricey but great experience!
Beautiful outdoor venue space that gave us a true New York Experience overlookign 6th Avenue.
We are so pleased to have been Eventi Hotel's first gay couple to celebrate the wedding of a lifetime.
Our coordinator was highly accessible, offered both emotional and logistical guidance throughout the process--including many creative ideas. All recommended vendors were top-notch.
The entire staff during the wedding ceremony and reception was warm, beyond accommodating. Venue was sophisticated contemporary. And the catering truly was excellent. To this day, family and friends are raving about the food, service, and venue.
We made the right choice, and forever will remember our wedding at...
We had the loveliest cocktail & dessert reception at the Eventi hotel, planned with incredible skill by the in-house event planner Nadine Riebeling. We had about 120 people and used the Verdi I and II space for a three hour cocktail reception, then after cutting the cake migrated to the Eventi Suite for dessert and cordials, a sort of after-party. It was all planned from afar and very effortless, as Nadine connected us with all kinds of vendors (floral, linens, etc) and handled the catering.. after one appetizer tasting a month before, hosted by Nadine, really all we had to do was show up. The Verdi space looked very formal and lovely, was elegantly lit and was not at all cramped; it made a nice impression. The band fit in easily and the music carried to both rooms; there was space for dancing even without a formal dance floor.
The Eventi suite, which is more like a fancy well decorated apartment (with a giant terrace that we never used because it was too cold) made a really great place for an after party; it just had a cozy feel that people seemed to enjoy. In both spots the Eventi staff were very attentive and yet not at all overbearing.
The next morning we did a brunch for guests in the second floor restaurant that worked out very well -- we had the large glass enclosed space to ourselves for two hours and the service was attentive.
A party at the Eventi is not cheap -- I think this wound up being between $250-$300 per person for the five hours -- but we had earlier been looking at the Plaza and the Four Seasons, which are not really places most people can afford to stay. The Eventi room block rate was $270, which is stiff but not for New York. The hotel is new and very fun and also generous with surprising goodies (like little boxes of primo chocolates in the room, giant bathtubs, etc) so our guests really enjoyed staying there.
