For the launch of A Hotel Life!
Me and Ben.
Americano's green smoothie, a treat before the pancakes arrive!
The bed. Minimal and sleek.
A bit of PVC anyone? Loved the polished concrete
floor giving the room its industrial, modern feel.
Well designed and roomy bathroom.
Industrial ‘worker’ theme carries throughout the hotel
with a soft wash denim bathrobe by Loden
Dager, and heavenly Aesop amenities.
Clever room service menu.
Find your inner southern cowboy with the harmonica
in a mini bar of well selected spirits.
Food is big at Americano; there’s a restaurant, patio and rooftop grill where a 90-day-aged ribeye is cooked in the ‘parilla’ (South American grill) and served with bone marrow, no diets here!
Enjoy the view! The rooftop bar is snug and cozy in the winter.
The rather sexy exterior of Hôtel Americano.
Highs + Lows
Even though there’s enough animal skin and fur on the roof to keep an Eskimo warm, this is a hotel for the summer months with a patio on the ground floor, restaurant, grill, bar and pool on the roof.
Location – Art, The High Line, and a short walk to some great restaurants.
The Green Smoothie – green apple, kale, spinach, kiwi, mint – even better accompanied by some pancakes and maple syrup!
Gorgeous Aesop Amenities.
That ‘polished industrial’ look looks good, but the room wasn’t particularly comfortable.

Polished industrial with a South American edge.
Chelsea – get cultured there are art galleries on every street, and of course walk the High Line and view NYC from a different height.
Latin-inspired pop beats.

- Designed By
Teeny pool on the roof; no exercising in this pool, clearly it was designed for a dip accompanied by a martini with a twist.
Go South with the Mexicana-inspired menu.
‘Day-time’ bar on the ground floor, candle-lit winter wonderland on the roof (lots of fur on stalls to keep bottoms warm!), and a private bar/club in the basement.
Leave them at home.
