I stayed in the Pod for a week and it was a perfect stay!! The location (near Times Square), the cleanliness, the staff professionalism, the room with view, all was great! Thank you. I'll be back for an other stay

A nice place to stay since it is close to New York Port Authority. In addition, the price was. Affordable. Also, the staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and well kept. The location is easy to find and there are many restaurants nearby.

I loved staying at the Pod Times Square. It was perfect for us! The room was clean and it had everything that we needed. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I would stay at the POD again and plan to come back!

After missing my flight I had to make a quick decision on my plans for the evening and The Pod made everything simple. From an easy-check in with the amazing Sahar to enjoying a quaint yet comfortable room with amazing views, it was such a great way to extend my trip. The bar/restaurant on the main lobby floor is gorgeous and the drinks were delicious. I hope I get the chance to come back for another stay in the future. Props to housekeeping for an impeccable room - it always makes the difference.

I've stayed at the Pod 39 many times before and been very happy, but they were full for when I was going so I booked this one instead. I really enjoyed staying here. The rooms are super clean and comfortable as well as super efficiently designed and like the Pod 39, had the necessary items like an in-room safe, television screens attached to the wall and plenty of places to plug in your laptop, cellphone and ipod. You are not going to get a place any cheaper than this in a location like this and have your own full bathroom (has a shower, no tub, but that's how it is in a lot of efficiently designed hotels in New York because tubs just take up too much space). I had a great view down 8th avenue which really surprised me (no such views at the Pod 39) and there's a small but decent gym on the upper floors with even better views to look at while you work out (and the equipment they have is better than average, so many hotels only have the cheapest, crappiest bikes and treadmills). It is a short walk from the Port Authority with many different subway and bus lines and plenty of great restaurants nearby (I liked the Westway Diner less than two blocks away and it's a longstanding New York institution). The front desk people are friendly and knowledgable about the area when they are not overwhelmed by phone calls and long lines at the desk. The place has a decent restaurant that serves all three meals; while their breakfast isn't cheap, you wouldn't pay much less to each at another place in the area. The only downside is you can't charge anything to the room like you could at the Pod 39 (which may be different by now anyway). They also stretch the definition of being in Times Square - I didn't think 42nd street & 9th avenue was part of that area, but it's location is still super convenient and I don't need to really stay right in the middle of Times Square anyway. If you can do better than this place, build your own damn hotel!

I would highly recommend Pod Times Square. It is such a good location, close enough to the hustle and bustle of the Times Square area but far enough to be quiet enough at night. We were on the 22nd floor and loved the view. Excellent cocktails in the bar. We didn’t eat in the restaurant so can’t comment on that.

I made a reservation through the hotel's official website. But within 24 hours, I found a website with a cheaper price. So I asked the reservations department if they would change the price I found. They offered to change it to the price I suggested. However, when I checked out, I paid more than the promised price. I showed the email I received to the staff, but they said the price was already greatly discounted and I ended up not paying at the promised price. The staff's attitude was disappointing. And I wasn't feeling well. All other experiences at the hotel were great. If this issue is resolved, I would highly recommend this hotel to others.

I still don’t understand why of 5 people staying in the hotel I was the only one who was asked to pay for a deposit which still i haven’t had my refound deposit in yet. The place was also super hot and we were turning off the heat since we couldn’t breath.

Response from Shanna Soares, Marketing at Pod Times Square
Responded 2 days ago
Thank you for your feedback. All guests are required to provide a refundable security deposit, which is placed as a hold on your credit card. The hold is automatically released at check-out, the amount of time it takes to be fully released is determined by your financial institution. The front desk can not check-in reservations without collecting this, and it is noted on our website and all affiliated third party points of sale. I am sorry you were uncomfortable with the temperature, each room has a thermostat and the windows open to let in air. If there was an issue with temperature control, we would have been happy to address during your stay. I hope you enjoyed your time in NYC.
