Mixed experience
It was a fun place to stay. Close to public trans and walking distance to other fun locations. But a couple of issues. The first day they did not clean our room. When asked about it they said the cleaning staff was gone for the day. Asked if there was anything we needed, they did bring up what we requested. We had problems with the safe. Stayed in a room with bunk beds. If only one tv was on, when it was turned off the second tv turned off. Very inconvient.

Will be back!
Had an amazing time at the Pod Hotel! VERY friendly front desk staff. Great location. It was a very short walk to subway station and to the theaters. Very quiet inside. This hotel is great for solo travelers like myself! If you are bringing a family it may not suit your needs. This is a contemporary hotel that caters to solo and business travelers. Rooms are small BUT cozy and quiet, giving you all that you need in a stay. Felt very safe staying here! Am definitely booking this hotel again when I come back!!!

Perfect for a quick trip, we'll be back!
This hotel was perfect for a quick trip to the city. The price was right and their affiliated parking was a SUPER deal (I'll paste info from the front desk below & a photo of the garage entrance). The hotel itself was easy to find, it was about two turns away from the Lincoln Tunnel exit, so city driving was a breeze (aka: nonexistent). It's right on the corner of 9th, that has every possible type of restaurant avaliable within walking distance. Most broadway theaters are walkable, ditto with MoMA / most midtown locations. The room was small, but what hotel room isn't in NYC? It wasn't that much smaller than pricier rooms I've stayed in, and it was big enough to not feel claustrophobic. We had a decent view of the city, too. Everything was clean and tidy, shampoo/conditioner/body wash provided. There is no in-room coffee, so plan on picking up a coffee on the street or get a bottled coffee the night before. I didn't interact with the front desk staff much but they seemed willing to help w/ transportation and bag storage. From the hotel re: parking, as of March 2020: "We are affiliated with 24-hour self-parking garage which provide discounted rates to all our guests. Manhattan Parking Group (MPG) Manhattan Plaza 401-472 W 42 St (bet. 9th & 10th Ave) (212) 297-5213 Monday-Thursday: $20 (24-hour period) Friday-Sunday: $25 (24-hour period) Please note that this rate does not include in and out privileges. Please have your parking slip validated by the front desk."

I would definitely stay here again!
Had such a great time staying at Pod Times Square! It is in a great location with short walks to the shopping/restaurants in Times Square, the theater district, and the Subway. The staff was so helpful, the rooms were clean, the beds were comfy, and for a great price. We stayed in one of the Bunk rooms. Also enjoyed the on site bar - The Polynesian! I would definitely stay here again.

Great stay. Compact & convenient
Great stay here! It’s compact but has everything you need. We hardly spent much time in our room as always our on the go but when we did it was clean, comfortable and have everything we needed. Well located and the reception staff are great. Would definitely come back here for sure. The Polynesian bar is also fab for a cheeky little cocktail!

Very good hotel, except for the sneaky Resort Fee
I was aware of this trick by hotels in places like Las Vegas, but I did not know it was also employed in NYC. The place is great, and even with the resort fee, the overall cost was reasonable, but it is still dishonest since it amounted to almost 50% of the indicated room rate.

Bathroom had hair in shower and tile wasn’t cleaned. Made it feel icky.
