What a cool chilled place. Stayed here on our last night in NYC. Room 219 very spacious. Bed comfy. Great location. Nice staff. Kadeney the guy who organises airport shuttles and holds your bags was super friendly and gave us some advice on where to eat (shake shack) It was disappointing the roof top bar was closed in winter :(...

PERFECT hotel for a quick trip. Good location. Brand new but small room. Friendly staff including concierge Stevie. Good bar and restaurant. Best show pressure in NYC. Least I ever paid for room in Manhattan

Pod 39 was one of the cheapest ways how to stay in the center of Manhattan. It's 15 walking distance from Time Square. Subway station is only 5 minutes walking distance. Rooms are small, but provide everything you need. Staff was really friendly, there is also a great roof bar at the top of the hotel with excellent view and...

Stayed at POD39 for our short weekend trip to NYC. We picked for its high rating on Hotels.com and location (only 2 blocks from Grand Central Station). Stayed in room 217 with a queen bed. Our room only has shower, no bath tub. Shower head is mounted on the ceiling instead of a handle on the wall. So taking a...

We stayed at Pod 39 for one night just before Christmas. We arrived a bit before check-in, but were able to check-in right away.

The room is beyond small - i am not the tallest individual at 5 9 and i couldn't fit in the bed; the room is noisy and with your luggage in there isn't much space for even another midget. Location though is somewhat central with a 10 min walk away from th email time square.

My husband and I were surprised when we arrived at Pod 39. The hotel room is very clean, the beds are comfortable, nice finish, and quality linen. The room was bigger than it seemed in the photos.

We stayed at Pod 39 a few days between Christmas and New Years, and it was a great central place right in the middle of the city!

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.
