The Pod 39 was great - well-designed (small) and very clean rooms, well-maintained property, and very conveniently located for where I needed to be in the city - just a short walk to Grand Central. The staff were friendly. This property offers tremendous value for money. If you don't need a lot of space, The Pod 39 is an excellent...

I'm giving The Pod 39 a solid 3 stars. I have stayed here twice, I like this place because it's clean, very affordable, and close to the Theater District and Grand Central Station. My first visit was in 2016 and I had a room with a queen size bed, very comfortable with big fluffy pillows and I slept very well....

I got a tiny room, very clean with very limited space. The customer service was excellent. The location is very convenience and close to the Central train station. I will be there again if I have to only for tourism purpose. If somebody needs room or space to work so it should looks for another alternative .

My first try of a pod hotel, and I loved it. It was all the space I needed, and was decorated nicely. The hotel has small hallways to match the small rooms, so be prepared if you have a lot of luggage. I would be careful about this place if I was traveling with someone. While the bathroom is fully...

A great hotel for my one night business trip. The accommodations were tidy and the staff very friendly. I booked a single Pod but was upgraded to a double, which I greatly appreciated when I got to my room. There was a lot of storage and once I got all my things settled, the room was very comfortable. There was...

It's is certainly recommended. Except that their fire officer woke everyone with his announcement of a false alarm at 3 AM. He did this 3...

Near Grand Central Station (trains and subways). Also pretty near some must-sees in NYC like Times Square, 5th Avenue, Rockefeller Center. Not too far from Penn Station (trains and subways) which is the best option if you come from JFK Airport (just have to take one train at Jamaica Station). Also near are many Irish Pubs, around the corner 2...

Booked a single but got upgraded to a queen. Very clean, well outfitted, comfortable and secure, the perfect place to stay on a budget. Not fancy, but everything you'll need for a quick visit to the city. Tried to eat at the adjacent restaurant, but it was extremely loud and packed with drinkers. One of my favorite diners, Scotty's, is...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
