Stayed at the Pod and it was awful. This place is for college kids an partiers -- that's IT. Like being in a frat house -- doors slamming up and down the hall all night long, a very loud drunk couple in the hall screaming...More
Great hotel, just loved the neighborhood and next to a subway station.
The room is small, but I had no problems to accommodate my suitcase and clothes (I was alone, for one week) and everything was clean.
It was a double room private bathroom, but...More
We had a three night stay at the Pod and thought it was great! The location is fantastic, very accessible and in close walking distance to a lot of sights and great restaurants, and near a subway station for traveling further afield.

We booked with STA travel for a double room. On opening the door to our room it appeared this meant twin, not double bed. The beds themselves were very hard and too short for anyone above 5 feet 6. Having been to other small room...More
This was my seventh tourist trip to NY and possibly the best.
We stayed in the 2 bed shared bathroom room and it was immaculately clean, well provided and just what you need from a hotel in NYC.
Shared bathrooms were clean. Never a queue!...More

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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the
affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.

The shared bathrooms are not shared with every room on the floor, because the majority of our rooms have en suite baths. There are 2 to 4 shared baths per floor, with only a few guests sharing each. Our housekeeping staff diligently keeps the bathrooms clean between uses, as you will see mentioned in the majority of reviews that comment on shared baths. They are always locked, they require a room key to open, and there is an additional bolt in each while occupied.
