In the beginning of the twentieth century, the “Old Penn Station” was a Beaux Arts architectural marvel. Inspired by Roman baths and the Gare D'Orsay in Paris, it was a vision of pink marble, steel beams, Doric columns, and light shining into an impressive glass atrium. But by the middle of the century, the station had fallen into disrepair and was demolished completely in the 1960s.

The current Penn Station exists entirely underground, below Madison Square Garden. And while it's not the looker it once was, it is a marvel of modern transportation: every ninety seconds, up to 1,000 people stream into the station from points near and far, including Boston, Philly and DC. At just two blocks away, Kimpton Hotel Eventi is one of the closest four-star hotels near Penn Station. The transit hub puts the whole city within your reach during your stay with us.
