Opened in January 2007 on a midtown block already dense with hotels and university clubs, Hotel Mela is—despite a misleading old façade—a tribute to contemporary Italian design inside: Guest rooms are done up in muted golds and beiges then accented by splashes of color (Granny Smith–green pillows, patterned carpets, and 26” plasma TVs). In truth, the overall effect is that of 220 apartments furnished by Design Within Reach. Room sizes range from adequate studios to spacious suites, culminating in the 875-square-foot penthouse with an enclosed terrace. Oddly, the one area without an Italian pedigree is culinary: A few months after opening, Mela welcomed Saju, restaurateur Philippe Bernard’s homage to French fusion.


Central, relatively quiet location and free WiFi.

Tiny lobby and elevators, a somewhat understaffed and depending on the season, rates can run high.
