We stayed for one night on 21st June having arrived on Statten Island ferry from visiting relatives.I think the location is brilliant for walking to Central Park,Times Square,5th Avenue,shopping,Broadway theatres and restaurants.We had a queen room so felt we had adequate space for the time spent there-probably would not be so good if more than a long weekend.The French Bistro...

1. Location of this hotel can get 5 stars. It couldn't be better! You just walk through 44th street for 3 minutes and there it is...Times Square! 2. The room was clean; although, TOOO SMALL! Probably, it was a typical Manhattan hotel room. Since it was my first visit to NYC, I was shocked by the room/bathroom size. 3. The... More

The room was teeny tiny - as I expected in NY fashion. It was, however, very well appointed and clean. Free wi-fi was appreciated. Having a clock radio that charged my iPhone 6+ was also an added plus! Location is fabulous, just steps from Times Square! I highly recommend Hotel Mela. The staff was always courteous and helpful too!

Good rate on this hotel room for a one night stay in the city. I booked the night before, so the price to stay a block and a half from Times Square was an excellent value! It's a Boutique Hotel so it's cozy compared to a chain, but well worth it. The decor was contemporary and interesting. The staff was... More

The location is GREAT so close to Times Square and the lobby smelled really nice but the rooms are TINY. Clean and comfortable but so small, and we had to pay to print off one piece of paper (basketball tickets) which seems like something the concierge should do without a charge. Price was okay if you aren't going to be... More

This was hotel number 2 of our New York trip and was a great experience. When we first checked in we were assigned a room that I think had to be the smallest hotel room I have ever seen in my life, which would not do for my wife and 4 year old. Asked the staff for something bigger and... More

I got a great deal on this hotel. I had an excellent room for Manhattan standards. The price was high, but reasonable for this area and for mid-April. Room and Service: Small bathroom, but functional. Excellent bed. We also had a desk. Great service and free breakfast was included with my package (from the restaurant next door, also had great...

We booked this thru Priceline, when we checked in they upgraded our room to king size bed. Room very clean and not a bad size for NYC. The bathroom large and extremely clean. The bed was very good.

Check in was easy and quick. However I did see a bit of a line one evening. The staff was friendly and did an excellent job when I checked in. It appeared that most of their customers are tourists most likely due to the hotels proximity to the shows and Times Square. I typically stay at another hotel that I... More

We booked a 5 day trip to New York and chose to stop in this hotel for a couple of reasons number one the location and number two the price and we were not disappointed . The hotel is basic and clean and in New York style small rooms. The location is fantastic in Times Square and most things of... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
