4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This place is cool, hip, trendy, and the rooftop bar is a hotspot that. The margaritas were awesome, I especially liked the spicy kick in the salted rim of the margarita glass. Domestic beers were about $6 and mixed drinks around $13... not bad considering NYC cocktail prices are normally +5-6 dollars. The tacos weren't bad, and this is coming... More

- Brilliant location that's easy walking to so much of the stuff you want to visit - Amazing shower (although my girlfriend says waterfall showers aren't popular if you have long hair) - Great scene at the lobby & rooftop bars - Friendly staff - Comfortable room that was well laid-out

I stayed at Pod39 for 3 nights last July. I spotted it on nightnight.co, a website that curates the coolest affordable hotels in selected cities. Really happy with my choice, the location is great, at walking distance from most sights. Rooms are small but homey and comfortable, with nice design touches. The rooftop bar has terrific views over Manhattan and... More

In summary a decent option in the center of Manhattan. The hotel is spotlessly clean and tidy. The rooms are, as has been mentioned, tiny (we had a Queen) but very well laid out and compact, with basically everything needed. Shower was excellent...boiling hot water and more than sufficient towels. Location is good, very close to Grand Central, however this... More

Pod 39 was a fun experience. The staff was nice, the hotel is clean and is located in a very convenient area. You have to go to the rooftop, since it has a nice view of the city and the energy is great. As you might already know, the rooms are small, but we didn't need a lot since we... More

Traveled as part of a group in NYC for a conference. The Pod worked out great for us eventhough it seemed we were the oldest folks there! Within walking distance to so many things...and easy access to all kinds of public transportation. The rooms are very efficient with a place for everything and very clean. The only thing I didn't...

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.
