The sleek glass structure encased in a stainless steel mesh screen sets the hotel floors back from the street, creating a much-needed buffer between the street side hotel rooms and the all-night activity of the bars and clubs below.
It allows the rooms daylight and views while still permitting them a sense of intimacy and privacy.
The clean and quasi-industrial style continues inside—with smooth concrete walls and floors, wood paneling, black and white glass walls, and Mid-Century modern furniture.
On the ground floor, The Americano restaurant has an entire wall of glass that opens out to a beautiful outdoor patio. Lobby café, which serves coffee and fresh-squeezed juice is lively, full of natural light place and a great hangout for guests and locals.
A great selling point is the unusually roomy rooftop terrace called La Piscina. It offers a lap pool surrounded by cozy cabanas and daybeds, outdoor dining room and bar with uninterrupted views to the Empire State Building and beyond.
La Piscina features not only a seasonal menu but also seasonal decor—open and airy in the summer, glass-enclosed warmth in the winter.
An elevator that rises along with the north face ferries guests from the lobby all the way to the rooftop, so that visitors can easily hop from one venue to another without bothering hotel occupants.
All rooms are low-key rather than luxurious. They are furnished with house wooden platform beds inspired by Japanese ryokans, black vinyl Zanotta bean bag chairs, warm lighting, and luxurious natural materials; some come with soaking tubs and fireplaces.
Moises Micha, co-owner of Grupo Habita said; “We want to tell a story about Latin America and New York. A New Yorker is always an Americano because they live in a city where they have to adapt all the time. Set in a former parking garage, the Hôtel Americano has a cool industrial Manhattan veneer but a warm Latin soul”.
The Hotel is located in West Chelsea, the heart of Manhattan’s art district, close the most active gallery streets by day and vibrant club scenes by night.
