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.
In the Area
Score same-day discount theater tickets two blocks away at the TKTS booth in Times Square. Revel in the Old New York glamour of Grand Central Terminal over martinis at the speakeasy-style Campbell Bar bar or dinner at the Grand Central Oyster Bar. 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.
How to Get There
I had a WONDERFUL
stay at Hotel Mela. It was so close to Times Square and all of the Broadway Theatres! It is in the perfect location and it was clean and comfortable!!! I kept commenting on how perfect it was for me.
Great location!! Very close to Time Square and all the attractions! Very clean rooms!! Great service!! Front desk was very thoughtful and nice, especially Jonathan Mena! I would definitely stay here again!
Had such a good experience at this hotel. Management was so helpful and kind especially Jonathan Mena at the front desk. Beds are comfortable, good amenities and rooms clean. Will come back in the future!
a very conveniently located hotel within the Times Square area with parking very close by. Walking distance to all the broadway shows as well as radio city and the rockefeller plaza area. Would recommend.
This was by far one of the best places I've stayed. Hotel Mela had very friendly and accommodating staff. The rooms were a bit smaller than I thought but they were very clean everything was in walking distance of Time Square and various other nearby attractions.
