Industrial Latin Fusion
Hôtel Americano

Not the new kid on the block, but still one of our reigning favorites, Hôtel Americano, designed by award-winning Mexican architect Enrique Norten, stands out among its quaint Chelsea neighbors. 


Sitting alongside some of the world’s premier art galleries and New York’s famed High Line Park, Hôtel Americano is Grupo Habita’s first property in the US and part of an expanding collection that includes twelve celebrated hotels throughout Mexico.

    The hotel opened up shop in September of 2011. The 10-story building, is a glass structure encased in a metal mesh façade that spotlights the industrial feel of the surrounding neighborhood. Along the exterior, a glass-enclosed elevator shuttles guests between the street-level restaurant and rooftop terrace. Hôtel Americano aims to reflect the spirit of Latin culture while fusing a variety of international influences.

    The hotel’s 56 rooms were designed by French designer Arnaud Montigny, who is renowned for his work at Parisian boutique Colette. Montigny’s design was inspired by an urban ryokan – a traditional Japanese Inn – with wooden platform beds, warm lighting and natural materials. Midcentury, minimal design and an emphasis on technology allow for complete serenity; the woes of big city life abate.
