When planning a New York City wedding the focus can easily be fixated on finding the most spectacular venue for your ceremony and reception. And rightfully so as NYC is home to various unique venues that can serve as the perfect setting for your city soiree.
However, another unexpected challenge can be finding the best accommodations to host your guests. Some things to keep in mind when choosing your wedding venue and hotel in New York City is the distance between locations, the number of rooms available, and of course budget. These details should take priority when planning because the guest stay is also an important part of your overall wedding experience.
Hotel Eventi by Kimpton stands out as a top wedding destination in New York City. Doubling as a swanky city hotel and modern venue space it proves to be the best choice for not only convenience but quality and attention to detail for its wedding patrons.
At Hotel Eventi you have your choice of a rooftop, ballroom, and green house event spaces accommodating up to 350 guests. All of these venues can be used for ceremony, cocktail, and receptions. Each space is impeccably designed to exude its own distinct character but can also be transformed to complement your event styling.
An oasis in the city, each of the 292 guest rooms features sink-into-bliss bedding, dual-fixture marble rain showers, and windows that stretch to the ceiling for an abundance of natural light and NYC views. The property also has multiple penthouse suites to ensure your bridal party has enough space to pamper and pre-celebrate on your wedding day.
If your guests should decide to “stay in” rather than venture out, they can still enjoy the hotel’s multiple amenities. The Eventi offers a 24 hr fitness center, luxury spa, and several restaurant options on-site. Room service is also available 24/7 bringing the necessary but often forgotten personal items such as hair styling tools and dental hygiene products to your door in less than 10 minutes. All of which could come in handy when preparing for a wedding event.
Nestled in Chelsea Manhattan, Hotel Eventi is just a few steps from the popular landmarks Herald and Time Square. Walking left or right of the hotel you’ll easily find high-end shopping, restaurants, and other cultural attractions. The hotel is also easily accessible by Uber and public transportation.
Hotel Eventi also offers venue spaces at partnering properties in the city, our favorite being NoMo Kitchen at the NOHO hotel. The restaurant serves a rustic American menu with global influences but what stole our hearts was the vibrant greenhouse scenery and grand chandeliers. Combining feelings of elegance with the urban undertone, NoMO kitchen’s aesthetic is quintessential New York City. We see this as the ideal setting for a cool city wedding reception.
