Hotel website there's nothing to do with the reality. A ridiculous tiny room, unbereable for a couple and with tainted and unwashed towels. It's impossible to stay there. There is no privacy betweeen the room and the bathroom with a transparent glass that leave you exposed at your intimacy. Service is no good either, with a unefficient staff. The restaurant...

Hello Frank B I am so sorry about your recent experience with us. It is unacceptable that you were provided tainted and dirty towels. I will definitely speak to our director of housekeeping regarding the linens. We do have our linens washed by an outside vendor, however even if washed, we should of triple check to make sure it was...

I've stayed at Hotel Pod 51 numerous times with a good feeling of above average bang for the buck. I wrongly assumed the Pod 34 would be similar. The only similarity was the size of rooms. But I believe the size of a queen was smaller in 34 than 51. It was not comfortable for 2. There is no way...

We recently spend 6 nights at pod 39. It is in an ideal location in midtown NYC, close to bars, restaurants and shops and a very short walk from Grand central station, Macy's, Empire State Building and much more. The rooms are comfortable, clean and practical. The staff are also very helpful, and organised our transfer back to the airport...

Hello 43worldtraveler Thank you for your contributions on tripadvisor. First and foremost, Happy Birthday! I hoped you had an amazing birthday and time in New York.

Well priced, tight quarters in a relatively good location, this place does its job. It has a roof top bar, so the elevators and people are going up and down non stop after dark. There's barely enough room to walk around the room, but it has why needed. The bathroom is comfortable for one, but can be odd when 2...

We needed a hotel where we could bring our dog for an overnight stay in New York. Booking was simple and effective. The dog cost only $10 per night as opposed to $100 in one of the "better" Midtown hotels. Yes it's small, as are its towels but the room was clean and comfortable and the bathroom facilities were good....

My experience at this hotel was positive! The only complaint I have was that I arrived a little early before the check in time. And I was surprised by how closely they stick to check in time. They desk agent told me to step aside and he will let me know when he had something come available. I waited and...

Picked this hotel because of its central location. Everything else was a bonus. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The rooms are a little tight but that's ok because we were in new York out and about. The bed was for sleeping!! Highly recommended

Was slightly concerned that as the hotel was such good value for money, it would be full of squealing teenagers keeping me awake all night, but this wasn't the case at all, it was super quiet. The double room, which I booked as a single, was smart, fun and well equipped with USB point (very important) as well a safe,...

Clean, comfy, cozy! Stayed in a mini bunk pod with my daughter for 3 nights. Convenient location. Walking distance to everything, and subway. Staff was courteous. Would love to have them put a full length mirror in room, and tiny refrigerator for water bottles, or perhaps a vending machine with water.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 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.
