Umbrella Hotel:

Melrose and The South Bronx are experiencing a boom in the hotel industry.

First the luxury boutique Opera House Hotel opened on 149th street between Brook and Bergen and now coming this fall is the Umbrella Hotel. Located at 681 Elton Avenue between E 153rd & E 154th Streets right off 3rd Avenue, the 7 story building will house 56 rooms with rates varying from $129 – $159 per night said one of the owners and Bronxite, Manny Chadah of AMG Elton LLC.

“There’s a lot going on in Melrose, with green construction and developments like Via Verde,” said Chadah when asked by us why he chose the Melrose location. “We’re located just 2 stops from Manhattan…we want to keep that money in The Bronx” he added.

According to Chadah, the Umbrella will also be a boutique hotel with luxury accommodations and plans are in the works to also have a rooftop lounge for guests and if all goes as planned, it will eventually be opened to the public.
