Imagine living in an Italian-designed New York apartment near Times Square and you have an idea of what It's like at this boutique hotel. Located between West 44th and Broadway, the Hotel Mela is obvious in its boutique approach to hospitality, staff is friendly and attractive, design is ultra modern and there are lots of little unexpected perks. The position of the hotel right in the theater zone means everything is within walking distance including Central Park, the Empire State Building and the shopping of Fifth Avenue. In the rooms, boutique extras create a special experience, like hip high-end toiletries, free wifi, an MP3-playing alarm and a sleek wall-mounted LCD TV. On top of that, friendly and sincere service from the hotel's Manager of Desire's (AKA the concierge) ensures a satisfying stay.
