I ended up here because of a booking mistake from my original hotel (The Dylan - see my review on this place). The POD is what you can imagine, an extremely small room with no frills. My room had a bunk bed and was so small I could not get my suitcase past the bed. The toilet and shower are...

The location is great and the front desk allowed me to check in 1.5 hours early. But the room had a bad moldy smell (like old socks) and the bed sheet was too small for the bed, leaving some of the mattress exposed. So then I ended up trying to sleep diagonally to avoid contact with the mattress (which looked...

I fell in love with this hotel! I stayed there during a father-daughter trip to NYC, and the bunk pod worked just perfectly for us. It was small, but modern and clean - as was the rest of the hotel. Since each bed had its own TV and a small shelf for snacks etc., we both felt that we had...

This hotel was booked for us to be close enough to our business venue which was a big mistake since there were other hotels which are far better. The hotel rooms were small. I have tried staying in at least 2 rooms in different floors, 10th and 11th. Both experiences were dreary, there were two of us staying in the...

Just got back from the Pod 39 after a 5 night stay. It's a good basic hotel - the rooms are very compact but clean and comfortable. Every day your room is freshened up and the maids are super friendly. I would recommend staying on a high floor so you get a good view of manhattan. Location is great for...

Very clean and efficient room that met all of our needs. The room is simple, but modern and the use of space is impressive. I could have stayed in the shower all morning with the overhead rain shower head and plenty of hot water! We had a great nights' sleep and were within walking distance of many attractions. Would definitely...

I recently stayed at Pod 39 for 5 nights (April 15-20) and for me,it was the perfect place to stay. Thanks to Dennis in reservations who way back on Feb.18, 2017 listened to my room requests (quiet, away from lift, good view of city) and delivered as promised. I stayed in the queen pod.

We stayed for 3 days in NYC at the Pod 39 Hotel. Besides its extremely good value considering how expensive NYC can be, the room was actually very comfortable despite its small size. Service was very good and helpful, and they helped with everything we required. And the location was ideal, just a few minutes away from Grand Central. Only...

Pod 39 is a hip, modern hotel not too far from Times Square. My wife and I stayed there recently and had a great stay. Hotels in NYC can be hit and miss with regard to friendliness. Pod 39 is a hit. They had the friendliest, most helpful staff we've encountered in New York.

Rooms are small (duh)... smaller than they look in the pictures. But they are functional and well appointed. Was in a bunk room with my nephew and having our own TVs and charging stations was cool. Small but very pleasant bathroom. Staff was very friendly and helpful. While I liked the location in general, and the pricing is great for...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
