Modern amenities and delicious on-site cuisine
Recent guests recommend booking a room on a lower floor to combat noise from the rooftop bar
An appreciation for unconventional design is almost a requirement for guests looking to spend the night at Hôtel Americano, lauded by experts for its innovative construction from award-winning architect Enrique Norten. This modern, minimalist hotel on West 27th Street (between 10th and 11th avenues) is especially well-liked by visitors who seek to spend much of their Big Apple trip in the Chelsea neighborhood or want to visit the nearby High Line or Javits Center. The property's simple wooden decor and bare walls don't indicate a lack of amenities: Inside your room you'll find oversized Turkish bath towels, soft denim bathrobes and in-room iPads. When you're hungry, head to The Americano restaurant that serves up French food with a Latin twist on its rooftop outdoor patio and main dining room. But the restaurant and bar can be noisy at night, so guests recommended booking a room on the lower floors if you're a light sleeper.

Critic Reviews

Travel + Leisure


The steel-and-glass aesthetic of the 56-room hotel matches the creative vibe of Chelsea’s burgeoning gallery scene.



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.
