Hôtel Americano

518 W. 27th St.
New York, NY, 10001, United States
TEL: (212) 216-0000

Who would stock a Manhattan mini-bar with a harmonica and furnish a bathroom with denim bathrobes? The answer: cult-favorite Grupo Habita, the inventive Mexican company behind Hotel Boca Chica (It List 2010), in Acapulco. The steel-and-glass aesthetic of the 56-room hotel matches the creative vibe of Chelsea’s burgeoning gallery scene. The High Line is a stone’s throw away; contemporary-art dealer Paul Kasmin has a new annex across the street. Americano frequently hosts exhibition opening after-parties, and the tapas restaurant has become the de facto canteen for the city’s art insiders. While the property could use better door service for 10th Avenue taxi pickups, we love that New York’s of-the-moment neighborhood finally has a stylish hotel to call its own.

Room to Book:

Room No. 55 is a studio suite with a Japanese soaking tub, roaring fireplace, and views that face north toward Manhattan’s uptown skyscrapers.

Insider Tip:

Take one of the hotel’s retro Bowery Lane pedal bikes for a waterfront ride along the newly renovated Hudson River Greenway Bike Path.
