The 231-guestroom and suite boutique hotel totaling 100,000 SF is the first property to be erected in over 20 years on what is considered "Hotel and University Club Row," centrally located in Times Square. Originally constructed as an office building and converted by The Moinian Group, the Hotel Mela combines the rich culture and history of New York with the high style and fine art of Italian living. Differing from the new breed of boutique hotels that skimp on space and amenities, the Hotel Mela offers the best of both worlds. With a classical architectural design, the Hotel Mela combines "old world' charm with the style, sophistication and convenience of modern day living in all guestrooms and suites. The name Mela means "the apple” in Italian and was selected by the executive team as a celebration of The Big Apple and the significant role Italian culture has played in New York City's history.
