Fabulous 8.8 From 2,739 reviews

Very good 8.0
The Pod it’s a perfect location to visit the city for few days. It’s centrally located and at a walking distance from most of the Manhattan highlights. The proximity to time square and the size of the room are not made for long staying.

Great Pod. Elevator UI Flaw.
I was here for 5 days on a work trip. This is one of the best Pods in the city. The rooms are super clean. They are very small though. I travel alone, so it is fine, but two or more would be really tight. Think twice about that before you book. If you are a tourist the location is perfect for Times Square and subways. Since this is a tourist hotel both in price and location it is VERY crowded. The elevators can get awkwardly crowded. And for some reason you need to take two, one from the ground level to the lobby and then the lobby to your room. You also need to key card to hit the buttons to your room, but you can't do it off another guests card. So 5-10 people need to key in to get up. It's a truly terrible design flaw implemented for safety? Also, the elevator from the ground level to the lobby has the Bar prominently marked and lobby written small. And it's a touch screen. I got on this elevator at least 5 times during my stay finding lost and confused tourists not sure what to do. Probably one of the worst UI elevator systems I have ever seen. FIX THIS. This is a 8/10 hotel but could be an 8.5 if they were able to manage the crowd and elevator better.

My new favorite Hotel
I loved everything about my stay at the pod hotel. The room was clean and had an amazing view of the city. The hotel is 2 blocks away from Time Square. It doesn't get any better than that! The staff is kind and friendly. We had zero problems during the entire stay. I will definitely staying here again soon!

Affordable place for theater-goers
It's probably the most affordable hotel choice for single travelers if they want to stay close to the theater district. The location is great, right next to port authority so it's a plus if you travel to and from the airports by bus. If you are a theater avid like me, you will find yourself on the south-west-ish of the theater district. Theaters are still within walking distance but not extremely close. The room is quite small, so if you travel solo I would definitely recommend taking a smaller suitcase, or it won't fit under the bed, and you will need to close it after taking your stuff out or else you will have nowhere to put your foot down. But other than the square footage it's a pretty nice hotel with good amenities and services.

Great Option in the Times Square Area
Really fantastic hotel close to Times Square. Easy walking distance to new Hudson Yards neighborhood as well. Be sure to reserve a time at NYC's newest attraction: Vessel. The room was very good if you are looking for a place to sleep and are ok with bunk beds. My wife and I are in our 40's and still have a few years left of climbing up into the top bunk. Everything was new and very clean, but on a very hot day the AC was a bit of an issue. While it cooled the room down very well it made it super damp in the room. Our towels were still wet in the morning despite being hung up and anything that wasn't in our suitcases was also damp in the morning. That was really the only drawback. Noise was not an issue either from outside or in the halls and everything else was comfortable.
