Checked in 2 days before the big snow storm in NYC. I booked a pod room on the website for $150 for two nights. Room was very hip, very nicely updated but that was it. It was a smallish double bed, reading lights on headboard were not working. Despite putting the heat up to max, cold air cranked all night in the dead of winter. So I shut it off and froze under the very thin down douvet. (no extra blankets in room or top sheets on the bed) The Douet was so starched that the flakes were all over the bed! In the bathroom the tiled floor was supposed to be heated. Not! I left my contact lens solution next to the window in the bathroom and due to the lack of heat overnight, when I woke up it was getting crunchy (starting to freeze). My shave cream was indeed frozen. Hair dryer was missing, so after a night of no sleep as I shivered in my bed, I looked like crap the next day for work. Upon asking the front desk first thing in the morning for a room change (asked them to move my luggage while I was at work) and an upgrade for the hassle, not only did they not relocate me before I returned, but they put me in another shoddy pod room. In this room I went to roll up the shade on the window to see what my view was and the entire mechanism fell off the window. Clearly this happened to the occupant before me. On another subzero night, I had nothing blocking the cold air from coming in. Although this time the heat did minimally work. These rooms are the size of my walk in closet at home. There is not much space to maneuver around the bed. Infact you feel like you are literally in a POD or a CELL. The shower stall in the next room must have been built on the wall right next to my bed. The walls are paper thin with zero insulation, I could hear the water running through the pipes and the sudsy couple cavorting for what seemed an eternity. $10 bucks per 24 hrs for WIFI, get lost!
BUT YOU CAN STAY FOR $150. as the saying goes. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!
Very hip and excellent Suhi bar in the lobby, but I'll take a pass coming back here to stay.
