Manhattan offers the perfect paradox: It's the city that never sleeps, but where many dreams come true. Fortunately, the contempo-cool vibe of Hotel Mela makes it possible to catch a few Zs while still being in the middle of all the action.

Keep an eye out for this week's Escape to Midtown, with a two-night weekend stay for two in a Superior Room, December 11, 12, and 18 to 25, 2011 ($480) or January 2 to February 29, 2012 ($348); or, a one-night weekday stay, December 11, 12, and 18 to 25, 2011 ($240) or January 2 to February 29, 2012 ($174).

All packages include a welcome snack and non-alcoholic drink, hotel slippers and hat, and a room upgrade based on availability at check-in—and you can rest easy in an abode with pillow-top mattresses, H20+ bath products, Wi-Fi, and 26-inch flat-screen TV.

But since you're just minutes from the bright lights of Times Square, you might forgo those 40 winks for endless entertainment, divine dining, and the nonstop nightlife that makes this taste of the Big Apple so delicious. Spend the day galavanting through Gotham's iconic mainstays like Central Park and the Empire State Building—and grant yourself a daydream or two at the holy grail of garb known as Fifth Avenue.

With evening approaching, enjoy a pre-theater meal of Bouillabaisse Marseillaise—shrimp, clams, and mussels in an aïoli-saffron sauce—at Hotel Mela's own Saju Bistro while sharing a bottle of wine. "Anything Goes" when you hit the legendary Theatre District on Broadway, or you can see a show (did somebody say "Rockettes"?) at the anything-but-sleepy Radio City Music Hall.

Return to your sleek digs to burrow under super-soft Egyptian cotton sheets, dispelling any doubt that you could slumber sweetly in this decidedly nocturnal nook of the world.

  • "That sleek, contemporary spirit, despite a few antique touches in design, prevails... Service is personable, making the Hotel Mela a good, solid choice to those who seek something a bit more intimate in hectic Times Square."
