Great place if you don't mind a small room

I loved the Pod. It was exactly what I was looking for. On this trip, I wanted a great location but I didn't want to spend a lot. The rooms are small but I was by myself so that didn't matter. I also selected the room with a shared bath which was even less expensive. There were 4 baths on the floor and it was never an issue getting one. There is even a light in the room to tell you when your favorite one is open. The restaurant is nice but pretty casual food. But there are tons of good restaurants within a few blocks so this didn't matter. I will definitely stay here again.

Weekend in the city

My girlfriend and I are from New Jersey and we were in NYC for our friend's bachelorette party. We knew we were going to be out late and didn't want to risk missing the last train home, so we were looking for an affordable place to crash for the night. Pod 51 was just a few short blocks from the club/bars we went to and it was a perfect fit for 2 people. The room was clearly designed for couples, so there's very little privacy (for example, you can only block off the toilet OR the shower at any one time with the sliding bathroom door), but everything was very space efficient and comfortable. It was a little pricey for such a small room, but I was more than happy to pay that considering the great location.

Perfect for a long weekend

In looking through hotels in nyc, this one continually popped up as one of the most affordable options. I really thought it was a cute hotel. My room felt a little small (as would be expected from a hotel named "Pod Hotel, no?) but once I settled in and plopped down on the bed for a quick nap, I found myself totally growing attached to the room. I opted for the shared bathroom, which is probably the #1 thing that people shy away from in this hotel. It's totally not as bad as you think, and if anyone had explained it to me, I wouldn't have thought twice (I thought three times and choose it anyway). There's a little panel with four lights on it above your door. It shows you which bathrooms are occupied and which are empty, so there's no one knocking on the door or anything while you're trying to shower or whatever. There wasn't a single time the whole long weekend that at least one of them wasn't open. The bathrooms themselves were pretty swanky too. Nice lighting, multiple shower heads spraying you from every direction, it was really nice. The only complaint I had is that the wifi was really shaky. It would just sort of peter out every now and then, coming back up full strength after like 10 minutes. Not a huge deal though. Pillow was a little flat too, so if that's important to you make sure you bring your own pillow. All in all a cute hotel in a super accessible location that was really cheap by nyc standards. I'd totally stay here again.
