Great atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, very clean, with the Highline just around the corner and the up and coming Meatpacking District just a few blocks away. Very trendy layout and room arrangements. Overvall, a refreshing change from the norm. The ground floor lobby and seating area buzzes with life throughout the day, serving as a cafe during the day...

Visited New York with my partner, in January, and chose the Hotel Americano mainly for its proximity to the site of a theatre event we were attending. We arrived fairly late in the evening and realised we'd lucked into a very glamorous proposition indeed, from the buzzy, beautifully lit cocktail bar through the sexily darkened lift to the room itself....

My husband and I booked a stay at Hotel Americano for his birthday and we had a really lovely experience. The concierge was super nice and helpful and even offered to store our luggage so we didn't have to carry it around the city after we checked out. I think this must be a really fun place to stay in... More

It has always been the hotel with personal touch. Not too well staffed when it gets busy but it has ample amenities for business trips. I always said high floor is better, but not this stay since it gets really noisy until late night due to the famed top floor restaurant/lounge. Everyone from reservation (thank you Joe), to check-in (thank... More

Loved this hotel! so stylish! I got the suite which was great! and so is the roof... You can walk to Meat Packing and you're right into Chelsea. I've had lunch and dinner and it was great. The service at the reception is super good and friendly. you really feel like they will take care of you no matter what!... More

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

"El Coqui," one of our winter favorites. Thank you for coming to enjoy the rooftop during the winter months. We cannot stress how equally magnificent our rooftop is in the winter as the summer. The transformation into a sexy, tranquil lounge during the winter months has been a great addition since last year and we are excited to continue it... 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

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
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.
