Hotel Americano

518 W 27th St, New York, NY 10001
+1 212-216-0000

This minimalist hotel, designed by Mexican architect Enrique Norten, was Grupo Habita's first project in New York. If you spot a handsome man in a suit riding around the neighborhood on a bicycle, it's probably Carlos Couturier, the hotel's owner, surveying his realm. 

Hôtel Americano is located in Chelsea, a historically industrial region that has become an art mecca. The hotel offers three types of urbanist-inspired rooms, with wooden platform beds in the Japanese style. All rooms feature warm lighting and light wood trimming. Several have a fireplace.

There's a restaurant on the roof, accessible from the street via a special elevator, as well as a lounge-bar. On the subject of food: You can use the iPad in your room to order a Bento Box for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Key info: The swimming pool on the roof is open during the summer. Bicycle rentals are available, so be sure to go for a morning bike ride along the Hudson River.

Rooms start at $245 per day.
