Hotels & Lodging: Hotel Americano in New York City

September 12, 2011

Located in Chelsea's art gallery district, a few blocks from the High Line, the just opened Hotel Americano (a parking garage in a former life) has been transformed by Mexico City-based architect Enrique Norton into a ten-story hotel for Mexico-based Groupo Habita. Paris-based interior designer Arnaud Montigny (of the famed Colette store in Paris) orchestrated the interiors, which feature a muted palette and a streamlined vibe. Montigny, who has worked extensively in Japan, incorporated Eastern influences throughout the rooms and the dining areas: table linens from Fog Linen, washcloths from Imabari, and room service bento boxes. For urban cyclists, New York-made Bowery Lane bicycles are on offer. For more information, go to Hotel Americano.
