New York's Chelsea neighborhood is known across the world for being a hub for art and design. In an area described best as "industrial chic," it is no wonder why Grupo Habita's Hotel Americano has become a popular destination, a "clubhouse for the art elite."
Designed by New York-based architect Enrique Norten, Hotel Americano is characterized by its minimalist appearance and steel-and-glass aesthetic. The interior, designed by Parisian Arnaud Montigny, is equally as sleek. With low-to-the-ground beds, black-vinyl bean bag chairs and harmonicas for sale in the minibar, every room serves the hotel's flare for industrialized design with Latin and artistic character.
The Hotel, housed in a former parking garage, is a blend of Manhattan warehouse with a warm Latin soul. In New York (especially during the summertime), the rooftop is the place to be.
At Hotel Americano, the rooftop is shared between La Piscine, a pool surrounded by relaxing cabanas and daybeds, and the outdoor dining space for their restaurant, The Americano.
The Americano is a must-visit spot in New York, serving "French fare with a Latin flare."
Bar Americano is not to be missed, either, and is a perfect place for post-gallery cocktails.
Additionally, Hotel Americano is benefited by its proximity (one building away) to Manhattan's beloved High Line, an elevated railroad track-turned public park that runs along the West Side of the island.
