Watervliet, New York
Reviewed 10 July 2016

The location can't be beat and the price for a decent accommodation in this part of Midtown Manhattan is splendid. The staff was lovely. The shower was great. What more do you need in Manhattan (where you intend to be out and about) than a good bed, a great shower, and high speed internet? All worked perfectly.

First of all, we would like to say: THANKS! :) We had a great stay. We loved the location and the restaurants around the hotel. The staff is great, always willing to help. The only thing you need to check beforehand is the size of the rooms, you have to have in mind that the rooms may be a bit...

Tried both Pods in NYC. While the rooms in Pod 39 have an attached bath, this means your room will have a lingering smell if you do a #2. Also, the shower does not have hot water unlike Pod 51. It's also farther from the subway, although Grand Central Terminal has more lines.

Very modernistic hotel in a great area. Lots of restaurants within a few block area. The rooms themselves are quite small but function for their main purpose which is sleeping through the night. The rooftop patio area is very much alive at night and makes a nice backdrop for a leisurely morning breakfast . The views from the patio are...

Room is about the size of the Bedrooms on Amtrak sleepers (the rooms with showers). Bathroom is definitely larger however. Like the train, there is upper and lower berth. Compact and well designed except for AC which works well but shuts off from time to time, then when temp heats up AC starts up again. I'd prefer a steady flow...

Hey santoro2009 Thanks for your write up! Glad you decided to give us a try this time around, and I hope you'll continue to come back to our property!

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.

Greetings Monica,

NYC as a whole is pretty safe to walk around alone. We host many single travelers of all ages, races, and sexes and we have no problem encouraging our guests to go explore the city on foot or subway. Also, we have free walking tour for our guests. It's a great way to make new friends and explore the city with a local expert. Make sure to contact our Concierge for more details.

Thanks for choosing Pod 39.

Cheers,

Scott

Greetings Sandra,

Yes, we are happy to hold onto your luggage if you arrive early and after you check out for the day. And all rooms at Pod 39 have their own bathroom with towels and bath amenities. No need to bring your own. Also in case you may forget any sundries, ask us, as we keep a small stock of typically forgotten items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc.

Cheers,

Scott

Greetings Yichun Y,

Our Double Pod had only one (1) full size bed. The only Pods that have two (2) beds at Pod 39 are our Bunk and Mini Bunk Pods.
