Thanks to Hotel Americano for hosting our Sofar! Located in the heart of Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood alongside the world’s best art galleries and New York’s famed High Line Park, Hôtel Americano is Grupo Habita’s first property in the U.S. and part of an expanding collection that now includes The Robey and the Hollander in Chicago, and twelve celebrated hotels throughout Mexico: Azúcar, Boca Chica, CONDESAdf, Deseo, Distrito Capital, Downtown Mexico, Downtown Beds, Endémico, Habita Hotel, Habita MTY, La Purificadora, and Maison Couturier. Hôtel Americano reflects the spirit of Latin culture while encompassing a variety of international influences. The 10-story building, designed by award-winning Mexican architect Enrique Norten, is a glass structure encased in a metal mesh façade that captures the industrial feel of the surrounding neighborhood. Along the exterior, a glass- enclosed elevator shuttles guests between the street-level restaurant and rooftop terrace. The rooms, designed by French designer Arnaud Montigny known for his work at Parisian boutique Colette, suggest an urban ryokan with wooden platform beds, warm lighting and natural materials. Quality craftsmanship combined with midcentury design classics, custom amenities, and advanced technology provides guests a serene space in which to retreat from the bustle of city life outside.
