This review is only for the rooftop bar at Hotel Americano. I went with my husband to have a drink on a Friday night. The rooftop is open during winter time which I think is great. The service is very good and the view of the empire state at night is amazing. I had a drink call "El Coqui" which... More

We chose this place for proximity to the theatre two doors down but it turned out to be a great place to stay anyway. My partner liked it even better than I did and it was designed well for a luxurious few days rather than prioritising comfort/storage etc. It met our needs very well, however, and we slept well, showered...

Based off of previous TripAdvisor reviews and the price, the hubs and I decided to book the Hotel Americano for our post-Christmas weekend in New York. The hotel is situated in Chelsea near the Highline and in very walkable distance from the BoltBus/Megabus drop-off (this comes in handy when you are rolling luggage around and trying to get your bearings!)....

We stopped here on a layover from Central America on our way back to Canada. We had never been to New York before and I'm glad we chose this hotel. The staff were really friendly and very helpful! The location was great too! Right next to Penn Station and close to most major tourist stops. We were only here for... More

We chose this hotel based on our previous experience at another GrupoHabita property. This hotel's modern aesthetic hits the mark with the sleek design of both the indoor and outdoor space, including an expansive rooftop bar/lounge area. By NYC standards, our room was large and the Japanese influenced bed was extremely comfortable, though getting in and out took some maneuvering.... More

This is truly a kind review. Definitely one to share with the team and Grupo Habita as a whole. It let's us know we must be doing something right if you continue to visit our properties in Manhattan and Mexico. We appreciate your repeat business and find it especially gratifying to know that the service was "heartfelt." Being a small... More

We stayed at the Americano for a week and we especially liked the location! Walking distance to Meatpacking (15 min.) and Times Square (20 min). We loved the design! The bathroom was amazing and the rain shower incredible. Aesop products another plus. Very recommendable!! First choice in New York!

We found it excellent for a bunch of good reasons. First of all location. The hotel is placed in Chelsea, which means that it is really close to Midtown without the noise of it. Therefore is a very good place to come back at night to relax. Chelsea is moreover is nice area, full of galleries and shops which can... More

I purchased our reservation on hotel tonight so I didn't really know what to expect. Hotel is pretty far West near west side highway but it was very quiet street with mostly art galleries and lofts. Small hotel lobby but very friendly and helpful staff. The roof bar is super cool. Our room was unsurprisingly small but clean and efficient.... More

Hotel Americano has very tasteful, consistent contemporary design, a good vibe, and a good crowd. On the functional side, it has its drawbacks, though - just like most NYC hotels in this category. Rooms are tiny with barely any space to put things, bathrooms are lacking shelving and towel hangers near the shower, and walls are paper thin, barely filtering... More

We thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. It seems that our minimal and unique design did not satisfy your preference. Although this saddens us we are aware that the product we aim to deliver is geared towards a certain clientele. Where we lack in space we strive to make up for in amenities, location and service....

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
