Good trip

Everything was good about the hotel. Nice bar inside. Check in lady was a little snooty with me cause my name wasn't on the list and insisted I was giving her the wrong name (guess it wasn't on their computer yet). Other than that everything was nice.

Weekend Trip

This hotel has the best value for the location. The best way to describe it is a hybrid between a hostel and hotel. Room was cleaned all three nights we stayed there, which we didn't expect. Really close to everything we were in New York for, would stay again!

Good location

Good location, not far from the Empire state building, Rockefeller center, the time square, the fifth Ave., the Grand central terminal, the United nations headquarter, and central park. Cheap: the cheapest hotel which I can found in Manhattan. Clean.

Great Hotel for Price

I have stayed at Pod 39 on several occasions. Everyone from the front desk to the cleaning staff are courteous. The complimentary M&M machine is one of my favorite perks. Each time that I called to the front desk with a question, the desk person was quick to assist me.

Perfect Location

It was very nice, although the front desk didn't seem to want to answer informational questions. The location was perfect and the hotel was clean. I wished the roof deck bar was opened later but, not a big deal. Thank you.

Great family trip

We absolutely love the location of this hotel. That was a top priority for us. We couldn't have been more satisfied with the comfort and friendliness and efficiency of the staff. The restaurant/bars were convenient and an added bonus. The rooftop lounge was icing on the cake.

New York Spring Break Trip

Our stay at the hotel was great, the beds were comfortable and though the room was small, it was cozy. Great place if you are going to be out on the town with friends for the majority of the day. It would have been great if there was a mini fridge or a microwave in the room though. The staff was helpful and the hotel is in a great location, it is approximately a 5 minute walk from Grand Central and approximately 10 minute walk from Times Square.

great NYC value

Great location just a few blocks from Grand Central Terminal. Pod room with two bunks had enough room for two travellers with one suitcase each. No closet space, just a hanging rod which was fine for a long weekend. Wish the room had 1) a mini-refrigerator and 2) a little table or bigger shelf in the bathroom on which to put your toiletry bag -- the little narrow shelf under the mirror isn't big enough. Due to a weather-related flight cancellation, we had to check back into the hotel and requested a similar room for two more nights. However, the one we got was much narrower, even though it was claimed to be a pod, not a mini-pod room. I'm not sure if it was the location next to the elevator (although there was no noise issue) or if there was a miscommunication. Lobby can be very noisy from the music coming from the adjoining restaurant... but for price and location, I think this is a great value and would visit again.

Great hotel for sleeping

Very clean and convenient. Rooms very small but sufficient for a night of partying if all you need the room for is to sleep.
