This area of north Chelsea doesn't have all that much to offer but you're a short walk to popular clubs as well as some choice bars and eateries.
Guests have a choice of 292 rooms, 53 of which are suites. Rooms are modern, like many new boutique hotels: white Frette sheets and pops of color, you get the picture - but the effect is very warm and welcoming. Rooms and suites feature jewel tones, custom lighting and unique art. Bathrooms have white marble tiles, acrylic paintings and Etro bath products. Suites have platform beds, pull-out sofas, white leather chairs and floor-to-ceiling windows. The Eventi Suite is my favorite, mainly for its bright blue sofa and library wall. It made me feel as if I was in the library of an English manor.
The lobby is rich and ornate, with walnut walls, red curtains and red marble floors. The hotel also has an outdoor plaza that is a welcome oasis for everyone, guests and locals alike.
Eating and drinking
The hotel has some of the most unique dining options of any hotel in the area. Food Parc is restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow's homage to street food. You can choose from a number of gourmet food stands. Bar Basque is a fairly new eatery showcasing cuisine from northeastern Spain. It's been a hit with locals and tourists alike.
There is a 24-hour fitness center as well as the full-service Spa @Eventi on the fifth floor.
Service is beyond friendly. Even though there are many rooms, you never have to wait. Ample staff are around to help.
