Chelsea's new Hotel Americano epitomizes what we love about New York—it's chic, decidedly urban, and has international flare that screams "one night (or two night, or three night) stand." Formed from the creative brainpower of Mexican architect Enrique Norten and French designer Arnaud Montigny (known for his interior genius with Parisian boutique, Colette), the hotel mixes up the NYC vibe with Japanese influence, getting Geisha in the wooden platform beds—and of course, Italian sleekness. With all of these round-the-world details, this multi-cultural hotel makes us crave an immediate staycation that's guaranteed to gain you painless passport stamps. The 10 floor stunner boasts all the luxe NYC extremes we love: The rooftop has an outdoor pool, winter thermal baths are de riguer, and there's a beneath-the-street private lounge (shh) that's perfetto for one-on-one time after grabbing an MX Burger at what's billed as "West Chelsea's prettiest dining room." And check their insane amenities list: pre-loaded iPads for local dining recommendations, bento boxed room service, fireplaces, deep-soaking tubs, and Bowery Lane Bikes available for guest use... not really your typical remote and ice bucket deal. Can you say "sick" day?
Peep our slideshow and prepare to indulge in this high-class and high tech hotel.
