Modern Boutique Hotel in Heart of Times Square
Throughout Hotel Mela Times Square, you’ll find artwork inspired by New York City’s most iconic sights, including Grand Central Station, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the Statue of Liberty. But even the best representations can’t hold a candle to the hotel's surrounding cityscape, thanks to the boutique hotel’s Midtown location.
From the hotel, it’s an easy walk to many of the city’s biggest attractions such as the Museum of Modern Art and the shops along Fifth Avenue. Bus stops and train stations are also nearby, making trips to Central Park and the upscale SoHo neighborhood a piece of cake. And many of the city’s best restaurants are just around the corner.
Hotel Mela’s atmosphere is sophisticated and relaxed, with modern interior design and soothing earth tones. Superior, deluxe, and executive guest rooms feature plush mattresses and flat-screen TVs. Executive rooms are the biggest of the three, offering 300 square feet of living space. The hotel’s elegant Saju Bistro, an intimate French eatery, is a great spot for enjoying breakfast, dinner, or a signature cocktail.
Times Square, New York City: Flashy Neon Lights and World-Class Art Centers
Times Square is located at the intersection of Broadway and Seventh Avenue in Manhattan’s Midtown West neighborhood. The famous address—known as the “crossroads of the world”—is home to hypnotizing billboards, giant wraparound news tickers, and the neon lights of Broadway. Beyond the glitz and gimmicks, there is a handful of world-class cultural institutions, ranging from award-winning museums to Michelin-rated restaurants. A collection of historical buildings in the Square include the Paramount Building and One Times Square—the site of the New Year's Eve ball drop.
Less than a mile from the hotel, the Museum of Modern Art houses masterpieces including Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night, Monet's Water Lilies, and Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup Cans. Save time for a stroll through the museum's outdoor sculpture gardens, where dazzling installations cluster around sparkling reflecting pools. A mile north, the David H. Koch Theater is home to the country’s largest dance company—the New York City Ballet, which presents classic performances such as Swan Lake and The Nutcracker.
And then there's Central Park, designed by legendary architect Frederick Law Olmsted. Head here to walk or pedal past the rolling meadows and bridges that span lakes adorned with lily pads. The Central Park Zoo is also contained here; don’t miss the daily sea lion feeding or the recently opened snow leopard habitat.
