    Htel Americano

    Located in the heart of Chelsea's art gallery district, Hôtel Americano, celebrates contemporary art and a passion for Manhattan. The 56-room hotel features decidedly Mexican touches, such as an outdoor rooftop pool that becomes a hot tub in winter, along with New York style details such as iPads in every room, which are full of recommendations for the best local galleries, restaurants, and shops. Bicycles are also on-hand to explore the High Line and Hudson River Park. Embracing Chelsea’s world-class art galleries, its multicultural residents, and its industrial past, guests feel as if they are a part of the local scene from the moment they arrive.

    Rooms & Suites

    With a Japanese Zen quality, each of the rooms in Chelsea’s Hotel Americano is designed to be a spot of calm and relaxation after you’ve explored New York’s hippest art district. The rooms suggest an urbane ryokan on the Hudson: materials are all natural, beds are on wooden platforms, walls are white, and floors are concrete. Upholstery is leather, lighting is low, and many of the textiles come from Japanese brand Fog. Every guestroom has an iPad with well-edited listings for the city’s culture, dining, wellness, and sports options. The 42- square-meter suites even come with gas fireplaces. The soft denim bathrobes in all three room types are a nice touch and a temptation come check out time!

    ARCHITECTURE

    Enrique Norten

    Award-winning Mexico City-based architect Enrique Norten has transformed a former Chelsea parking garage into a 10-story, metal mesh-wrapped boutique lodging. Norten fashioned a sophisticated, quasi-industrial facade that opens to a quietly dynamic space, with two restaurants, a lobby café and two basement bars. Both Couturier and Micha, wanted architecture that would reflect Hôtel Americano’s urban location but still create a sense of escape.

    INTERIOR DESIGN

    Warm Japanese minimalism

    Paris-based interior designer Arnaud Montigny had a warm approach to the interiors, one influenced by his work in Tokyo. Guest rooms suggest an urbane ryokan on the Hudson: materials are all natural, beds are wooden platforms, lighting is low, and walls are devoid of art. “We’re a neutral space in an area jam-packed with art galleries,” says co-owner Carlos Couturier. 

     

    In Americano’s basement, the bar El Privado is slightly hidden away, requiring reservations, but ‘not snobby or pretentious.’ The muted palette is intended to help soothe and pamper guests after a day, or night, of enjoying the city’s energy.

    MADE BY ORIGINALS

    Carlos Couturier and Moisés Micha

    For Carlos Couturier and Moisés Micha, building hotels that reflect their surroundings is more than just a job – it’s a passion that drove these two Mexican entrepreneurs from citrus farming and investment banking to boutique hospitality. “Even if we’re successful at something, we don’t repeat it,” Couturier says. “We like this sense of passion and audacity.” Their Grupo Habita collection has grown to include very diverse properties. Ambitious, fun-loving and well-traveled, the dynamic duo was awarded ‘Team of the Year 2011’ by FIZZZ Magazine.
