Eventi Hotel Gets in the Marathon Spirit


You’ve seen how our hotels go the extra mile. So naturally when the ING New York City Marathon races into Manhattan on November 6, they’ll be on their best, most sportsmanlike behavior.

At Eventi Hotel, that means offering a package especially for runners and supporters. Called Run Twenty Six Point Two (26.2) While Staying True to You at Eventi, it has amenities that both recharge and relax travelers arriving to the city at such a fast-paced time.

On Marathon eve, guests kick back with a carbo-loaded feast in the comfort of their room. Come race day, athletes take Eventi’s private transportation to Staten Island, where the marathon begins. Meanwhile, fans fuel up with breakfast at Bar Basque adjacent to the hotel. When the big kickoff arrives, they shuffle outside to watch the marathon broadcasted on Eventi’s Big Screen Plaza’s massive LED screen.

After runners have crossed the finish line, Eventi rewards them with a Sole Delight massage in the onsite spa; the traditional Chinese treatment eases tension by targeting pressure points that work on specific areas of the body. (We feel relaxed just thinking about it.) They also run off with a $26.20 credit toward their stay.

Ready, race fans? On your mark, get set … go!

Hotel Eventi is located at 851 Avenue of the Americas in New York City. To book this package, use the rate code PNYM online at or by calling 646-794-6830.
