No way near 4 stars!! Stayed one night following Broadway show. Didn't check in until late in evening because even though we requested an early check in we were told they don't participate in that option (it was 1:30). Was handed a key to use the "fitness club" for changing - well it was one bathroom and had a line... More

With this being a return trip to New York it was nice to be in a location that was close to everything. You couldn't ask to be any closer to Times Square and within walking distance to just about everything. There are subway stops close as well as places to eat and shop. The hotel itself was very nice, staff... More

Great location and proximity to Times Square, theatre, transit....everything! All of the staff are very accommodating. Concierge John Paul was outstanding to assist in planning to maximize our short visit.

Hotel was a perfect location just a block from times square and easy access to the subway. The staff was incredible in helping address every question about NYC. They helped with subway routes and even got a great deal on car service back to the airport. The room was well appointed and the bed super comfy. There is nothing bad... More

First time in New York, glad we stayed at the Mela. Close to Times Square, subway station, Broadway and good restaurants. Clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff. Beds were comfortable and room was well furnished. Would stay here again.

Visited NYC the first week in August. This was our first stay at the Hotel Mela and we loved it. Definitely our favorite place to stay at to date, and we've stayed in many places in the City.

Have stayed here before and liked it. This time went into the city with my son (18) and we wanted separate beds (duh!) so asked for a deluxe double. After reading some reviews I was prepared for a very small cramped room with 2 doubles or 2 twins. Wow! what I got was 2 double beds but in their separate... 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.
