Ice melts in water because water is at a higher temperature than ice (think about it. the refrigerature is cold, water turns cold-->turns into ice). When the warmth transfers from the water to the ice, the ice melts, and the water becomes colder, until everything reaches equilibrium (same temperature) with the room.

If you put the ice at room temperature, it'll melt the same, just because room temperature is higher than ice temperature (zero degrees Celsius, for that matter.)
