Hotel Americano Review

This boutique property, which overlooks the High Line, captures the artistic and stylist spirit of Chelsea. Rooms are funky yet comfortable, with low-platform beds, black vinyl bean bag chairs, and vintage details like touch-tone phones. Design is interesting, but comfort is in the details: soft denim robes, iPads loaded with music, and addictive Aesop bath products. Fashionable locals flock to the year-round rooftop bar and plunge pool. Coiffed staff members are genuinely helpful, a lobby coffee shop supplies on-the-go snacks, and even room service manages to be stylish—meals arrive in bento boxes. Dining on-site is appealing: a French restaurant with Latin flair has indoor and outdoor patio seating, and there's also a rooftop grill.
