I was constantly disappointed with my stay at Hotel Mela. For some reason I wasn't able to check in 30 minutes before my scheduled check in time, yet when I got there later, there were enough rooms for us to be able to switch 2 times. Somehow, when I finally got there Christmas night, I was given a really small room, with what looked like a junior sized bed. That surely wouldn't work for my pregnant fiance, so I went for another room, the size I paid for. We went up to the second room, which looked clean, but stunk of marijuana. Back to the front desk, and we were given another room. This room was clean, with no offensive smells, but the view was of a wall instead of the street, whatever. There is a pay parking lot next to the hotel, which is great, as long as there isn't a line of people waiting to get their cars (its New York, so I guess its to be expected). The location of the hotel is great, and after parking the car we could walk everywhere, this was the best part of the stay. The hotel is surrounded by great restaurants, most of which were closed by the time we were able to check in, but for people able to check in at a decent time and explore, its great. Our stay at Hotel Mela was just 'Ok'. This was our first time staying at a hotel in Times Square, and I honestly dont think we'll do it again.
