Hôtel Americano

****

Sporting a façade shinier than the top of the Chrysler Building, Hôtel Americano makes a striking statement. A multinational love child of Mexican architecture, Manhattan modernism and Japanese serenity, the boutique hotel manages to create a refreshingly natural feel. Located in Chelsea’s gallery district within feet of the High Line, it’s a favourite for the fashion set, who love to sun themselves by the rooftop pool, or be seen on the back terrace nibbling on the restaurant’s French-meets-Latin-American cuisine.

Highlights:

  • Prime views of the High Line

    Bright, cosy rooms in the heart of Chelsea

    Stunning roof deck with pool

Smith extra

Bottle of house wine upon arrival.

In the know

Also need to know:

Dogs are welcome; a $50 non-refundable deposit is required for Spot to stay in your room. No frumpy robes here. Kick off your clothes and try on Loden Dager’s soft, slightly distressed denim bathrobe, and a pair of felt wool slippers. Even the striped Imabari washcloths add to the bath appeal.

Packing tips:

Hipster glasses to help fit in with the gallery-hopping art crowd; botany books for identifying native plants along the High Line.

Dress code:

Casual, but worldly. Rompers have been spotted.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

Mrs Smith and I are no strangers to New York City. But each time we come, we fall a little more in love with this seductive city. As ever, we arrive for this trip excited, enthusiastic and hungry. We have a love affair with food: it’s quite understandable, since I’m the exec chef of Austin’s Japanese restaurant Uchiko and proudly won the title of Top Chef on season nine of the reality show. I will also happily travel the distance for interesting morsels alongside my perfect partner in crime: my missus who matches me bite for bite.

This visit to Manhattan has an added food-related frisson:

Dining information

Restaurant:

The Americano’s menu is as culturally cross-pollinated as its decor. Chef Joseph Buenconsejo prepares French dishes with Latin American accents: classic French lobster salad has distinctly South American touches from quinoa and salsa verde, and the burger is topped with poblano peppers and avocado.

Top table:

In good weather, stake a spot on the back terrace, where a bright Americano sign and blossoming trees make this slice of Manhattan more like a film set.

Last orders:

The restaurant serves until midnight.

Room service:

The kitchen creates a series of clever bento boxes, available from 7am until midnight. One combines guacamole, tacos and refried beans; another neatly compartmentalises a burger, coleslaw, ketchup, chips and pickles.

Hotel bar:

Americano’s Lobby Bar is open from 7am until midnight, with breakfast pastries to start the day, and an enticing line-up of European beers to start the evening.
