New York City, New York
Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is one of my wife's go to spots on her monthly book club trip to the city. Welcoming staff, safe clean rooms and close to restaurants and transportation. I often accompany her when she stays here as it is close to Bryant Park and Grand Central.

From checking in to checking out the stay was comfortable, staff were polite, environment was elegant. The hotel is literally around the corner from the heart of Time Square. We enjoyed every minute of our time there. We would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends. On our next trip here we would most likely stat again just a...

My wife and I were looking for a little getaway for Valentines day. We live on Long Island and New York City is a short railroad ride away. We decided to go into New York City for some touristy stuff. Lunch, Dinner, a play (A Bronx Tale – SEE IT) and a visit and tour at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. An...

I'll start by saying that I didn't pay for this stay, but if I have had to, I most certainly would! Now, the hotel isn't big because it really is more a boutique hotel than anything. However, the hotel rooms are nice decorated with its own modern touch, and both quite charming as well as pleasing to the eyes. I...

We stayed here before and were so satisfied that we came back again. What can I say? For the price we paid it's just a great location in NYC, beside Times Square, the Theatre District and easy to get to any where else in the city from here. There's a small business centre and fitness centre in the hotel which...

I've always said this was my fav NY hotel because of the location, price, and great staff. Last week's trip reminded me of all the reasons I book Hotel Mela over and over again. My one wish.....is that I would love for the owners to update the rooms. I swear my bed had a dip in the middle. No worries,...

I had booked a room with a work desk and refrigerator. What i was given was a BOX. No work desk, NO CHAIR, no refrigerator. There was nowhere for my suitcase, so it landed on the bed.

I am travelling a lot to NYC and stay now most of the time at Mela. Good sized and clean rooms, comfortable beds, good breakfast restaurant, very close to Time Square and metro stations, nice and helpful staff.

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.
