I was booked here for a week-long business trip. I'll begin with the good: Pod 39 is in a great location. If you're into the whole Midtown thing you're within walking distance. If you're not it's still in a convenient area with close enough access to the subway so you can get as far away from Midtown as possible. The... More

The bedroom and bathroom are very functional, clean and tastefully decorated. The staff is friendly. The only negative is a feet smell which has decrease over time but persisted despite aeration.The bedding is average. To visit New York for a week with my daughter it was perfect. The bunk bed was ideal!

This hotel was everything we needed when visiting NYC. We spent a majority of our time sightseeing and only came back to sleep. It was comfy and had all the appliances we needed! It is very affordable and a great place to stay when on the go.

I was pleasantly surprised with Pod39. I stayed in a double bed room for just myself. It has just what you need to visit the city. The rooms are small (that's the concept) but they are very clean, safe, and the ensuite bathroom was nice. Because it is small, note that the toilet is only a few feet from the... More

I had a confirmed reservation for May 6 and received an email to cancel. I was offered a ten percent discount that will never be used. I plan ahead and find it unconscionable to have my reservation cancelled less than a week before my time in New York. This would have been my second visit. The location of the hotel... More

The room is perfectly equipped, with everything you need, but don't expect to spend any time there. The restaurant/bar in the hotel is very nice, on the ground floor, for just hanging out. And most importantly, the location is absolutely awesome. It's a 5-10 minute walk to grand central, from which you can go everywhere. There are also awesome places... More

The stay at Pod39 was very nice. The location is perfect for sightseeing and the room was very clean and bright, with two windows. The bar on the groundfloor seems to be a popular NYC hotspot as well.

Good value in prime location...walkable to a lot of places, minutes from Grand Central Station. The full/double "pod" rooms are very well designed. And the wireless is fully functional and complimentary. Great water pressure, comfortable beds. In-room safe. Lots of plugs for devises. Plenty of hooks and spaces to store things on walls and under bed. VERY small sized rooms.....but... More

Loved Pod 39 - the location was terrific, a 5 minute walk from Grand Central Station. It was a clean, comfortable hotel and the staff were great. Free Wifi, basic but very serviceable rooms that were clean and fully functioning. The concierge was so helpful - handing out maps with highlighted routes and notes of what subway to catch. Would...

I enjoyed in Pod 39. The room was ready much earlier than the check in time, they cleaned it every day. The bathroom is great! It is very near to the Grand Central, Times Sqare and Central Park. The best thing is roof top bar!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood 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 paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit 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.
