I agree with a previous review that succinctly summed up the stay at the Pod as "you get what you pay for." This was an OK place, definitely cheaper than expensive alternatives in NY, and modern, full of young energy, with free wireless. Folks at...More
Loungy atmosphere, nicely refurbished, small rooms but equipped with all the basics and even more.
My husband and I enjoyed it very much. Only thing that bothered us a bit, we were on the 12th floor and the Wifi was extremely slow up there.
I have just come back from New York after staying in The Pod Hotel for 5 nights with my girlfriend. We booked the hotel after reading reviews on this website and they didn't let us down. We had an enjoyable 5 night stay, staff are...More
This is a great hotel. Check-in was quick and friendly. The lobby is modern and has a concierge. I had a single room on the 3rd floor. The room was very clean and well appointed. I was apprehensive about the shared bathroom but it was...More
The Pod is a pretty cool place to stay. Really funky interior and relatively cheap for where you are in New York - in the middle of everything - as long as you can handle the backpackeresque showering and toilet facilities. I stayed in a...More

This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the
affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
