Good height but i am not too sure about the base. It would have looked a whole lot better if the cladding used at the top was also used at the base! The plain concrete on the sides of the base remind me of something out of the 60's. "NOT GOOD"

The Big Eventi (Hotel) Is Almost Here
Where: 851 Avenue of the Americas [map], New York, NY, United States, 10001May 10, 2010 at 9:25 AM | by MsRebecca | 0 Comments



Guess the Hotel Revealed!

As two out of four folks surmised, the NYC hotel with the Central Park ceiling artwork was the Eventi Hotel—which is now in the home stretch and ready to open this Friday.

We had a sneak peek at the city's newest Kimpton hotel last week, and saw a lot to like. Starting with the warm, spacious lobby that provides an instant refuge from the hustle and bustle of Sixth Avenue right on Eventi's doorstep...

This part of New York, south of Macy's, north of Madison Square Park, and also home to the Ace Hotel, is an odd duck of a neighborhood. With flower vendors and garment district businesses and curry joints and suitcase stores, it seems chaotic in a way like no other part of the city. But it is convenient to many other parts of town, and it's a hell of a lot easier to get to than Kimpton's other hotel, Ink48.

Now, let us tell you what's inside....



Interior designer Colum McCartan has done an impressive job of creating distinctive spaces throughout the hotel. It's stylish and Kimpton-like, but with splashes of whimsy, like the painting that's peeking out from big theatrical drapes behind the front desk. And the lobby's ceiling art.

As a hotel designed to host lots of live events, there's lots of meeting space, including a couple of gorgeous suites with massive terraces on the fifth floor, which you can get a peek of in the photo above.

Even the regular rooms are a good size for New York, and they're opened up more with the help of the floor-to-ceiling windows (Unfortunately, we aren't allowed to publish photos of the rooms just yet.) The mix of rooms includes 53 suites, and also a number of "tall rooms" that feature California King beds. (Perfect for basketball players, who have apparently already expressed interest in Eventi for this very reason.)

All 282 rooms—along with the fitness center, meeting rooms, and spa—will open this Friday. There will be a temporary restaurant (also serving 24-hour room service) until the hotel's signature Basque resto opens in October. A whiskey bar and the hotel's public plaza with big screen also open in October, and the Food Parc comes a bit sooner, in September.




We'll have more deets and photos for you later this week. In the meantime, if you're already sold, you can still book a room for opening night on May 14, starting at $279.20 for a City view King

The disappointing thing is that the render looks so spoiled.

Exactly, those huge concrete parts are awful. That's what looks so amazing in the render and turns out to be awful in real life.

This building is a surprise after sunset:

the lower third is part of the street life, the middle bit is part of the organic height of surrounding buildings.... and then suddenly you discover that there is an even higher bit towering into the sky. Very impressive... and all because of this special way of cladding and lighting! I haven't seen it at day time yet.
