4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

It was our first time in NYC so did not really know where to stay and what to expect. It turned out that POD 39 is really conveniently located near to the (5min walk) Central Station if you want to get the tube! or else you can walk to most places. The hotel is quite nice and the rooms (pods)... More

The staff was friendly, the elevators quick, the decor cool. My daughter and I stayed in a mini-bunk and loved everything except the bathroom glass door was frosted only half way up. When my daughter was in the top bunk she could see me on the toilet. It would be better to frost the whole door. The shower had a... More

Hello Ontariosouth We definitely love to have you back! A near perfect experience, that is pretty amazing. We understand the shower glass door can be a bit overwhelming, and we are always looking ways to improve our product. Thank you again for your wonderful review.

It's called 'The Pod' for a reason - the rooms are on the small side. However, there is still plenty of room for an average couple with 2 bags & hand luggage. The rooms have everything you need - ensuite with shower, double or bunk beds (we stayed in a double), storage for bags, hangers for clothes, charging points, full... More

Pod 39 has it all - comfy rooms, great location, free wi-fi and a sweet rooftop bar with stunning views of the city. It's close to Grand Central Terminal, New York Public Library, United Nations Headquarters and Bryant Park as well as Chrysler Building, Empire State Building and Times Square. I visited in October 2014. I was in town for... More

The service was very good with a very clean bathroom well attended every day with clean made beds and good WiFi. The staff were always attentive and answered any questions with... More

The time spend on this hotel was great, staff was really good especially on the concierge. They make my trip wonderful by explaining how everything on the city work. Hotel was also very clean. Is very small but definitely worth it. Can't wait to come back.

Great hotel. Very good location, atmosphere, friendly staff, wi-fi worked OK. The rooms are OK, but could be noisy (some buzzing stuff in the floor of the 813 could be very noisy in the late morning). The USB charger in my room was falling off, but I did not try it as my charger (magnetic) requires a full wall charger.... More

A renovation project in our apartment posed a dilemma: Where could we stay in Manhattan for four nights and be close to work? At the homes of well meaning friends with limited privacy (and who might not remain friends after 4 days)? Or at a luxury hotel - the kind we ordinarily stay in - where the cost of 4... More

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. I have stayed in NY several times and paid a lot more for a lot less. Room was ideal for me and my daughter. It is very compact but designed brilliantly so we had plenty of room. We visited in November and the room was always warm and clean. Great location,... More

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.
