Hôtel Americano

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.
