Times Square base for exploring the sights, with an NYC-inspired look and bistro-style cafe
Two blocks north of Times Square, Hotel Mela is a comfy, central base for exploring all the classic Midtown sights, including Bryant Park, Grand Central Terminal, New York Public Library and the shops along Fifth Avenue. The 232 modern guestrooms are, like most central Manhattan hotels, on the small side (Superior Rooms are 190 square feet) but have all the essentials, from king, queen or double beds dressed with pillow top mattresses and 300-thread-count linens to Lavazza coffee makers and flat-screen TVs. En-suite bathrooms have walk-in showers, single vanities and H20 spa bath products. Downstairs, the hotel’s bistro-style restaurant, Saju, is a cozy find amid the Midtown fray offering classic Provencal fare like moules, pommes rissoles and steak frites. As popular with the local lunch crowd as with hotel guests, you’ll have to make a reservation with the 24/7 concierge to secure a table. Guests also have access to a small fitness center that’s open round the clock, but getting out to explore a classic slice of NYC on foot promises a far more satisfying workout.

Bryant Park, just two blocks south of the hotel, offers some welcome green space in the middle of Midtown. Depending on the time of year, you can ice-skate, catch an alfresco flick or challenge a local to chess or petanque.
