Hell's Kitchen
Just a few strides from the pulsing beat of Times Square, Hell’s Kitchen has a much more local pulse than its buzzing neighbor. The low-key vibe is part of the appeal, but there’s also a new energy arriving in the neighborhood in the form of modern residential buildings with new retail and food shops. Ninth Avenue is lined with restaurants of all types, from tiny Thai hangouts and Italian trattorias to French bistros and Southern cuisine. Just show up hungry and walk up and down the street, you are bound to find something that looks good. For a more classic taste of the city, grab a bite to eat along Restaurant Row (46th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues) before a Broadway show. The Hudson River provides a break from the city blocks with riverside views, piers for boat tours, and parks perfect for a stroll.

I stayed at this hotel with my partner, the hotel is perfectly situated close by to Times Square and subway station. The hotel is very modern and the rooms have everything you need! The rooms are designed to get the most amount of useable space from such a small area, and the room really is cosy, but not too small. I would definitely stay at this hotel again!

i stayed at this hotel back in November. 2 days before travelling they took 159 from my bank account( this was supposed to be a deposit ) When I arrived to the hotel, my booking was cancelled for some reason, they apologized and sorted this out! however they said i need to pay the full amount including the deposit that i previously paid. We decided to pay with my husband credit card ( this was a long time ago, but i believe we paid with a credit card to avoid 50 pounds charge , something like that) I have a bank statement that show the full amount of the booking was taken from my husband credit card !!! when i left i was reassured that the money taken from my bank ( the deposit ) would be fully refunded ! up until this day i never so this money !! My bank have been charging me since because of this !!!!!! the total amount was $896.89 , this was taken from my husband credit card. 218.20 USD was taken from MY account and never refunded !!!!!!!!! my bank has charged me for my account being overdraft !!!!!!!! I WANT MY MONEY !!!!!!

We booked 2 days at this hotel through Bookings.com. Due to a change in itinerary we only stayed the second day of original booking. I emailed the hotel through Bookings.com twice, well in advance, to notify them. I already paid in full for both nights and accepted that I would loose the one night payment. I sent another email direct to hotel's email address when I received no reply. When we arrived, they had cancelled our initial booking. After speaking to the manager they reluctantly "uncancelled" my booking. When I got back home, I realised that charged us for another night. I effectively booked for 2 nights and ended up paying for 3. When I disputed this, they refused to reimburse me... Even with proof of notification. Apparently it is completely ok to ignore customer emails and overcharge them at Pod Times Square.

We went for 4 nights and we booked through Loveholidays.com and we paid all holiday in advance but when we arrived at the hotel they said we need to pay extra facilities fee tax . When we tried to find what included this tax they said just we need to pay this nothing else. I think is a rip off I dont know who wasn’t transparent the Hotel or Loveholiday so I will give you 2 stars plus the heating worked bad and the vent was so noisy we couldn’t sleep well.

We appreciate the feedback, MihaiC614. We're disappointed your time with us was less than ideal. It's unfortunate you didn't notice all fees associated with your booking. Our facilities fee allows us to offer additional amenities for all of our guests. The information regarding our facilities fee is readily available on our website. We do hope you give us another opportunity to share a more positive experience with you soon.

Fully enjoyed our stay at the pod Times Square! We came for my mums 50th birthday celebrations with myself, my partner and my mum and dad. We had two Queen rooms on the 17th floor, close together, and with a city view as requested! Not only did they meet our room requirements, they added extra touches in the room to make my mums birthday extra special! The rooms themselves are a perfect size (yes they aren’t huge rooms but this really wasn’t a problem). There was enough room for the two of us, 2 hand-luggage cases and a large cabin case. We didn’t stay in the hotel much as we were often out all day but the beds were comfortable after a long day of walking around. Every single member of staff we spoke to were helpful, and cheery. Checking in and out was quick and easy. Could book an airport transfer on the day of our departure back to JFK for a good price. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, it is fantastic value for money and made our already amazing trip to New York even better. Thank you so much!!!
