Room - just as expected from web site photos. We had a twin which is probably slightly larger than the standard double. Bathroom was small but clean. Thought the beds were disappointingly small for the US. Same as British singles and did not give me and my daughter a great deal of space to spread out as we are used... More

Rooms are tiny byANY standard. Mine had a "window" the size of a notebook affording absolutely no natural light. I was happy that we did not stay there with my husband as it was seriously claustrophobic. No space to literally stand in the room. Flat screen TV obstructed by mini bar selection as there was no other place to put... More

First trip to New York and the staff were great, would tell you the best places to go visit, eat, drink etc. Rooms, although no views(not surprising) were spacious, modern, great bathrooms, surprisingly quiet and we even got a free upgrade! You are literally a 2 minute walk from Times Square and 10minutes from Broadway! When I can afford it,... More

My wife, daughter and I recently had the pleasure of staying in Hotel Mela in NYC near Times Square, a convenient location. The hotel is managed by Desires Hotels and it shows. Right away friendly, competent staff took our luggage and efficiently checked us into our rooms. The rooms are large by "Big" Apple standards and elegantly appointed. Each room... More

Pamela Curtiss has continually gone above and beyond to make sure myself and my colleagues have everything we need. I travel 50 weeks out of the year and I always feel "at home" when I arrive at Mela because of all that Pam & the Mela staff do to welcome us!~ Thanks

I have now stayed at Hotel Mela a few times for business and it is the perfect place to stay! The rooms are clean, the service is great (super friendly!), and I've also been able to use the work out room which is also very clean. I would recommend to anyone! We have also had the pleasure of working with... More

This is one of my favorite places in midtown. The people, ambiance and rooms are great. Pam Curtiss is a rock star and always willing to go out of her way to help us.

Pamela (reservations/customer relations) never fails us (American Sporting Goods). From the moment that she books us in, to the time we checkout and every request in between, we feel that being well taken care of. Pamela and the entire staff's priority is clearly focused on customer service. On the rare occassions when we are unable to stay at the Mela... More

I stayed for 2 nights with my son in this hotel. The hotel is very well located near Times Squares. Although having a room on the 4th floor overlooking 44th Street it was not noisy at all. The size of the room was good, the beds were comfortable and the bathroom spotless.We paid $200 per night which is excellent value.... More
