We stayed at the Pod Hotel for our 10th wedding anniversary. I had not been expecting much from this hotel despite the high price but was still very disappointed by the welcome we received. I imagine that most New York hotels are short on space and the room here was no different but the receptionist made no attempt to welcome us or tell us anything about the hotel, its services or the general area. We got nothing more than "you are in room 1014, you have paid and check out time on Friday is 12 noon". Fortunately the room was clean and generally okay but certainly didn't warrant the price of £170 a night with a shower, room only. It was the size of a shoe box and restricted further by a shelf over the bed meaning you couldn't sit in there if you had wanted to. The air con was noisy but the room got very hot without it on despite it being about 16 degrees outside, so you had the choice between the noise from the outside or the noise from the air con - so make sure you bring ear plugs. The cafe here is pathetic for the number of rooms but there are plenty of other places nearby. It was well located being close to various subway stations. Also disappointed to see that the roof garden was closed and didn't appear to be re-opening in the near future. I have stayed in better hostels than this.
