What I liked:

Service at the front desk was very friendly and efficient.

What the hotel could do better:

Rooms are styled carefully, but some issues such as poor lighting in the entryway, where one must insert the key into a small hole to turn power on, to the awkward platform the bed sits on, made the room less than comfortable. The walls are entirely blank white, and with no details it begins to feel like a jail cell. Public spaces are better... The rooftop bar is lovely, with great staff. Breakfast service was less impressive.

Hotel Description

Hôtel Americano’s location is one that’ll have more than a few guests checking their maps — some to verify that the Mexico City–based Grupo Habita has indeed set up shop in New York City, and others to check that there is indeed a bit more of Chelsea west of 10th Avenue. It could have been risky on both counts, but there’s no doubt that Habita waited until they were good and ready — and no doubt at all that they’ve pulled it off.

You can’t miss the building, with its perforated metal cladding, and once through the doors there’s no doubt you’re in the right place. The room concept is “urban ryokan,” which is about as now as it gets, and it’s hard to decide what’s more surprising: that it hasn’t been done before, or that the Americano, with its platform beds, its wood-lined sleeping pods, its pared-down but thoughtfully constructed room layouts, gets it exactly right. Here, as in the best hotels, comfort and style aren’t opposed to one another, but seem rather to reinforce each other, the clean lines creating a sense of ease, and the luxe textures helping to enrich the visual experience.

Room service, ordered from an in-room iPad, comes delivered in a bento box, and downstairs The Americano serves Latin-inflected French cuisine in a stylish dining room or out on the patio. Meanwhile they’re grilling out by the rooftop pool, and in the Bar Americano, with its concrete surfaces and white furnishings, you’ll feel instantly transported to Mexico City, at least for a moment — proof that New York can still stand to learn a trick or two from south of the border.
