Hotel of the week: Hôtel Americano, New York City

The Americano is located in Chelsea, home to 300-plus art galleries and steps away from the High Line.

Meet the New York art world’s “hotel du jour,” said Ann Binlot in ArtInfo.com. Located in Chelsea, home to 300-plus art galleries, the 5-month-old hotel is itself an impressive creation—a “10-story glass structure encased in a metal mesh façade.” Already, the Americano doubles as a gathering place for creative-industry elites. Steps from the High Line, a park created from an elevated train spur, the hotel tucks a restaurant and two sleek bars into its lower floors. “But the gem is La Piscine”—a rooftop cocktail aerie whose pool, during winter, becomes a toasty thermal bath. hotel-americano.com; doubles from $255
