Excellent location! Few steps to Times Square. What made our stay comfortable was the excellent customer service of its lobby and front desk staff, Jojo and Ronald, respectively. They were very accommodating and friendly.

I always go to NYC before the holidays, and this time I ended up at the Mela - through Hotwire booking. The hotel is very well located if you need to be around Times Square. It has a tiny gym. My room was super small: I couldn't get around the bed and I have no idea how they manage to...

The room we ended up with was an unexpected upgrade and it was FABULOUS!! There wasn't any problem; it was just given to us when we checked in. Everything was clean and comfortable. The towels were white and fluffy. There were lots of TV options, but we were on the go and just happy to sit and enjoy our room...

This was our third time visiting NY and out first stay in the Times Square area. The hotel is in a great location in terms of accessibility and surrounded by good bars and restaurants. Our room was a larger style room with a desk area away from the bed which provided more space. Views were nothing startling as we were...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
