This hotel adds a touch of style just below Penn Station in an area desperately in need of new lodging options. The lobby has ornate teak woodwork and giant, eclectic artwork; guest rooms are spacious (if a bit dark), with comfortable beds and oversize bathrooms. A complimentary happy hour between 5 and 6 pm brings hotel guests to the ground floor in droves. The hotel has invested heavily in dining options, including Brighton, adjacent to the hotel with kiosks featuring
everything from dim sum to burgers, plus copious outdoor dining space (a rarity in congested Midtown), and Humphrey, a farm to table restaurant on the second floor. An environmentally conscious hotel, the Eventi has been awarded four green keys by the Greek Key Eco-Rating Program.
