Pod is very clear on its website about what it provides: the amenities you need for a comfortable stay at an affordable price, with not much excess space. For us it was perfect: the (queen size) bed was very comfortable and we got a good night's sleep, the shower (not shared) was powerful and warm and the room was (relatively) quiet. For storage there was enough underbed space to tidy away our stuff, and a couple of coat hangers for the few things that needed hanging. There was room to walk around the bed, but not much more - but this was as advertised. The location was great: only a short walk from Grand Central Station.
There's also some nice communal spaces, including a lovely roof terrace, which didn't seem to be advertised in the lobby so it was pretty deserted (probably because it was the middle of Winter so the bar was closed). However, there was an inside room too that was cozy and very nicely decorated - we went up there one night and were pretty much the only ones up there. Great views out over New York.
This hotel is right around the corner from Times Square. Perfect location to walk anywhere. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. When we booked the trip we stated it was for my 50th birthday & a wine basket awaited upon check in. Thank you to the staff!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week and enjoyed every minute. Whilst the hotel is set in a busy part of NYC, a stones throw away from the iconic public library, our room was off the street allowing us to have a peaceful night. I loved the decor and the staff were really helpful. Our fridge was regularly replenished, at no cost to us, and the room was always clean and tidy when we got back to freshen up in the afternoon.
