This was my first stay at Pod Times Square having previously stayed at Pod 51 on 3 occasions. This was a 4 night stay in early October 2018.

I flew into JFK. The hotel is easily accessible on the E subway line. It took approx 1 hour from the airport via air train and Jamaica station and cost $7.75 + $1 for metro card. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from port authority station.

Check in was quick and easy. The girl on reception was a great introduction to the hotel, very pleasant and helpful (I didn't get her name unfortunately). I'd requested a room on a higher floor with a view which she was happy to help with.

The rooms are small but perfectly function-able, they definitely squeeze a lot into a well designed and lit room. The room and bathroom are spotlessly clean. One thing to be aware of is that the dividing wall between bathroom and bedroom is a frosted glass wall, which might be uncomfortable depending who your staying with. Rooms include safe.

For me the highlight has to be the view. I was put on the 20th floor with view downtown towards one world trade centre. Also, looking on to Hudson Yards.

The location is perfect to get a round Manhattan. Your 2 blocks from Times Square and a maximum 25 minute walk to Central Park, Macy's, Empire State Building, Rockerfeller Centre (top of the rock), Madison Square Garden and so many other top NY attractions. The subway at port authority offers easy access to anywhere further afield.

Plenty of restaurants and convenience stores in immediate area.

Will definitely be back.

We stayed the weekend of Labor Day 2018. The rooms are small and utilitarian but clean and provide what you need for a stay in NYC. Location was awesome within walking to Times Square and subway station close by. Lots of restaurants just up the street in Hell's Kitchen area. If you're about seeing the city and spending minimal time in the hotel room, this is a great place for the value.

Room tip: They have limited rooms that are two room suites. Perfect for family or friends weekend.

I had an enjoyable stay at the Pod hotel. It was cool and hip with lots of young people. The customer service was excellent, the staff was friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and efficient with comfortable beds.
The location is very convenient for tourists and theatergoers. This hotel is highly recommended and reasonably priced! ☺

Room tip: All rooms are quite as the lobby is several floor up an elevator.

Positives - Great location, a short walk to Times Square. Friendly check in staff. Clean room.

Negatives - Very small room, smaller than I was expecting with nowhere to store luggage. Not sure on the glass bathrooms as you can pretty much see everything through the glass when somebody is showering which wouldn't be for everyone. Luckily I was travelling with a friend for the first night and then my partner stayed with me the second and third night but other people might not be so comfortable with it. Bed not that comfortable either, woke up a few times in the night and usually sleep all the way through.

HI Octavia93,
Thank you for your feedback. I'm delighted to know that you enjoyed our location and staff but disappointed that you didn't find our creative use of space, particularly our under the bed luggage storage compartments useful.
I encourage you to try out one of our Pod Pads in the future which are a much more spacious alternative to our standard Pod accommodations.
Best,
Paul Kashman
