I go to Manhatin almost every months for medical treatment. I feel home in this hotel surrounded by very welcoming and good service. During my stay this October I lost my charger and Kathy was very helpful informing me that the clock in the room has built in charger and cables.

Quiet modern rooms, great location, the tv had many channels… excellent staff, especially Sahar :) only downside was hot water took 5 minutes to turn on and room was quite small, but that’s normal for NYC

I stayed here for 4 days on a tourist visit to new York. I like how close its to time square and subways can get you anywhere in 20min. My room was at the 17th floor small but clean and with a great view. house keeping did not service the room I'm guessing because of covid. check in was fast and easy and the staff is friendly. the hotel offer free walk-in tours of the city overall a good stay

This was my first time staying at Pod. The inside of the building had modern decor yet simple. Very different from. Your usual hotel. The front desk staff was wonderfully pleasant and accommodating. The room was small and immaculately clean. It’s all we needed in a home base while tooling around NYC. It’s refreshing to have affordable accommodations in the convenient heart of Times Square without killing you financially. I will definitely stay here again.
