Great location, yes the rooms are small hence the name Pod however you're in New York, you're not really spending much time in them. The rooms are very modern and the shower is great.
We loved the layout of the room, the cleanliness, the speed of the elevators. Even staying directly next to the elevator wasn't a problem. Staff were very nice. The glass wall separating the bathroom from the bedroom is a big problem for us. I can't think of anyone I'd be comfortable staying in this room with. If I were alone, it'd be great.
Sure the room was tight but the bed was comfortable and everything worked fine in the bathroom. The location is wonderful and so is the value. I will return. Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom facilities very good
Location Everything other than location
Clean, compact and great for an overnight business trip You have to request an iron and ironing board ... other than that, it's fine.
location, honesty of one of the staff telling us not to eat there. e-mailed me one price, when I got to hotel, quoted me another price.
I really enjoyed my stay at Pod39. The hotel was very nicely decorated, definitely a "trendy" hotel. I know they have many room options - I stayed in the bunk bed room which was very small and New York-like. The beds were really comfortable. I would most recommend this place for people traveling alone or with a small group (although the bigger rooms might be good for families - there is a bar/restaurant attached to the lobby, though, so keep that in mind). The price was quite good for an NYC hotel, and the location was great - I was able to walk to all the Broadway theatres as well as Koreatown near Herald Square. Also fairly close to a subway station and Grand Central. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would definitely stay here again! The room was so small there was no ironing board - I didn't ask the front desk what my options were because my clothes weren't that badly wrinkled, so there may be a way to get your clothes ironed. It's not that big of a deal, really!
Great shower and comfortable bed. Awesome location. Very small. Needed one more mirror and had a great place on the empty wall above the desk. Peep hole in the door had been pushed out and was filled with toilet paper. Bathroom sink was clogged up and wouldn't drain even after maintenance supposedly fixed it. Didn't have extra rolls of toilet paper and had to go to front desk to request more. Also no ice machine. Had to go downstairs to the bar and they looked at us like we were crazy when we ask them for a cup of ice.
In a city where 3 star hotels are above $250 per night, POD 39 rises at a fenominal location, with modern clean and fresh look at a fraction of the price.... Staff is excellent and the rooms are small- cruise ship size, but that's a great compromise for the bvenefits you get... HVAC system was great and the shower is the best ever.... Some of the electrical outlets didnt work and could not be fixed..
Great location, at an NYC cheap price. The room got completely dark at night. I couldn't hear much noise from the street or any noise from other rooms. The hotel itself was well kept and I felt safe. The comforter on the bed was only mostly clean, and the door to the bathroom was dirty also. You can clearly hear whatever is going on in the hallway, even when your door is closed. The bed wasn't sower comfortable.
It was my first trip to New York. I was really impressed by the staffs and everyone at Pod 39. Very efficient and valuable hotel in New York. The location is very convenience. The hotel room was comfortable for one person or two people. I'm surprised of how clean the room was. The hotel maintain the cleanliness very well. Very reasonable prices. I wish they had a small fridge.
Hotellet ligger meget sentralt til i New York Litt oppussing snart hadde gjort seg. Men ellers OK.
Svært vennlig betjening i resepsjonen. Rask service. Concierge i lobby kunne skaffe billetter til alt mulig av transport og dagsturer, men også billetter til f.eks. Broadway-show. Rommet ble ryddet/vasket hver dag, svært hyggelig vaskehjelp også! Litt dyrt blir det, særlig pga lokale skatter og avgifter kommer i tillegg når man sjekker ut. Frokost på hotellet var dyrt.
Beliggenhet - Hotellet har "små" rom, og litt sliten standard. Savnet kaffemaskin på rommet som er standard på mange USA hoteller.
Beliggenheten er bra og ok frokosten. Triste og slitte rom. kommer nok ikke til å velge dette hotellet neste gang.
Super beliggenhet og god atmosfære.Mange muligheter for å spise og drikke både på hotellet og i nærheten. Kort avstand til metro.
Sofitel var et perfekt valg. Hotellet ligger veldig sentralt i nærheten av Times Square og teaterdistriktet, men allikevel i en rolig del av 44.street. Hotellet har en god standard og personalet er serviceinnstilt, vennlig og oppmerksom. Vi storkoste oss på dette hotellet, og skal absolutt bruke det også på neste New York tur. Vårt rom var romslig og akkurat slik det var i bildene. Frokost er unødvendig dyr, det finnes mange gode og rimeligere frokostkafeer i nærheten av hotellet. Ingenting. Vi er fornøyde med presentasjonen i booking.com og er fornøyde med utvalget booking har i ulike byene.
fantastisk beliggenhet de burde tilby lette kaffe drinker i lobbyen
Rent og pent, vennlig betjening. Alt på hotellet fungerte som forventet, gode senger, aircondition o.l. Veldig bra beliggenhet i forhold til seværdigheter. Nei
Clean and modern bathroom, plenty of room for a nyc hotel room. The purified filtered water on every floor was amazing! The terrace was lovely.
Easy check in and check out - all on a computer. Nice staff, perfect location for business on the east side. My window was open the whole time and I couldn't figure out how to close it. The heating was VERY loud.
Staff was overall friendly and very helpful. Conditions were clean and well maintained. Free snacks in lounge area : ) Free bag check and maps of the area. Some of the staff members were a bit unfriendly. View was terrible and we had a choice of a room with a view or ground level and we asked for a view of the city. We were given a room with a view of a wall.
location room size -small
The location was great...Everything was in walking distance. Definitely would stay here again.
It was quiet refuge to come back to at the end of the day, and it's proximity to Times Square, theater district and dining made it very worth while.
central position poor view, and breakfast service in restaurant
Friendly staff, nice hotel, wifi with no charge, 2 PCs with Internet connection in Lounge for general use like on-line check-in for air travel. First room (no 611, at the back of the hotel) was small and very noisy due to air-conditioning outside in the alley. Staff were very helpful in transferring us to another room on the street side at the top floor (no PH05) the next morning. This room was more spacious and had more luxury. Noise from the street did not disturb us at all. Very well situated at 45th Str between 6th and 5th Av. and at walking distance of e.g. Time Square/Broadway, 42nd Str, 5th Av, Empire State Building, and even Central Park, etc. Café Manhattan right across the street is very nice for breakfast & lunch.
Location of hotel good. Had a room on the 10th floor which was small but adequate and reasonably comfortable. Free internet (with printer for boarding pass) in hotel - very useful.
Great location, low rates. Very poor maid service, hotel environment very quiet & boring, not a place you would hang out in.
Location is excellent. Hotel was also very clean. Cold drinking bottled water was available for hotel guests which was great in the NY summer heat. NY hotels are expensive so must say Club Quarters is value for money in comparison to others.
The room and bathroom were spacious for a NYC room and with a coffee maker. The bed was not as luxurious as it appeared, the pillows were nice but the bed was rather stiff. Compared to the rest of the room it needed to be upgraded. The work out room was like being in a dungeon, ancient equipment, located in the basement in a really small space with low, low ceilings. A good amount of the space was taken up with an ice machine, soda machine & water despencing system.
efficient welcome via the automated check in/out system and helpful and willing staff. Free use of computers and rooms comfortable and hotel very convenient for Time Square et al.n
Beliggenhet og service Nei
Fungerte godt ved innsjekking - utsjekking - vi fikk mange råd og vink når vi ønsket det, kart utdelt ved ankomst, deilige senger og godt renhold.
Hyggelig skrankebetjening og proff guiding til ulike aktiviteter og steder ble god ivaretatt av egen person dedikert for dette.
der er et bra hotell for fam me barn,rommene var ok i størelse.ikke så mye trafikk. at det ikke var komfyr på rommet..
Sentralt, prisgunstig, store rom. Fikk ikke kontakt med hotellet via mail før vi ankom. Ønsket en bekreftelse fra hotellet at alt var i orden før vi kom. Dårlig renhold på rommet. Skitne sengelaken.
Sentral beliggenhet Hygggelig betjening Gode senger Eget lite kjøkken Rimelig ut fra standard -
Som utgnagspunkt for en storbyferie var dette hotellet svært bra å bo på. Korte avstander til Manhattans pulserende liv. Hyggelig og bra Italiensk restaurant dør i i dør men resepsjonen.Suiten vi bodde i kunne gjerne ha fjernet det gamle vegg til vegg teppet og erstattet dette med et vaskbart tregulv.
Veldig sentralt i New York, Det var veldig gammel airkondisjon anlegg på rommene, som bråket veldig mye.
Checked in after a long flight from Australia at 11pm. Room was not made up and bathroom was disgusting. Went to receptionist who allocated us another room - same result. Demanded a refund, and went and checked in at the Westin. Very disappointed.
Extremely small rooms. Loud air conditioner. Needs work
It's located near major attractions and it's the room assigned to my family and myself is a good size room. That it did not include continental breakfast
In general the staff was nice and accommodating. In particular the concierge named Aisha (spelling?) was extremely kind and helpful. The room was clean, and got the job done. I would stay here again as it was a great value and location. My 'Cosy Queen' was pretty small. If I had another person sharing the room, it would have definitely been too small. But for myself it was fine, but not for the clastrophobic!
More dining, social areas
I went with my girlfriend and her 17yr old sister. Everything was perfect. The front desk personnel were more then accommodating and the room was beautiful. the hotel itself was great. I couldn't have asked for anything more!!
The lobby is beautiful and the location is great. Upon arrival to an already expensive hotel, I was told I had to pay a MANDATORY fee for "free wifi and a 10% food voucher and gym use". I didn't want any of that, but was forced to pay anyway. I was woken up by housekeeping next door at 5:55am - no apology when I left at 6am because I couldn't sleep. The room was dusty and not very clean and I ended up taking the stairs from the 12th floor because the elevators were sloe, though those issues were nothing compared to the terrible hours and ridiculous fees. Do not stay here.
Everything was pleasant except the amount of external noise you can hear in your room, both from inside the hotel halls and the street noise. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Excessive noise from external sources
Historic property. They don't make them like this any more. Elevators were very slow and jam packed with people at peak hours. Also, there are lots of stairs in lobby making accessibility a challenge for disabled.
The location for the cost is imcomparable. I will definitely put this on the list next time. Front desk and bar staff were not service oriented. Bar prices are... well... it's NYC.
I liked the location and for the most part the room was clean and the bed was nice. I didn't like how most of the hotel was not updated and the valet service took a while.
Location was great Elevators were impossible. Had to wait upwards of 10-15 minutes for an elevator to reach the 10th floor, every single time we used them. Actually opted to take the stairs a few times to save time. Toilet in the room ran for almost 5 minutes after every flush. We were locked out of our room at 1130am, 30 minutes prior to checkout time. The "breakfast bar" in the hotel lobby had nothing but coffee and 2 bananas left at 10am, with no other options provided. We did not get a receipt at checkout, either, nor was one emailed to us. And lastly, we waited for almost 30 minutes for our car to be brought around at checkout because the driver was waiting for the doorman to call him to come around (which he did as soon as we came outside).
Nothing. Third party booked stay then went bankrupt. No email or advance notice. Hotel receptionist extremely rude and antagonistic. Not enough decency to offer comparable rate to alleviate situation. Never again.
Great location, comfy beds Initial room was unmade, shower was clogged, but issues were rectified immediately when brought to their attention Wifi is not free
Hotel stay was right on point after a long day thanks
Easy access to Grand Central and in the heart of NYC.
Elizabeth in housekeeping was a tremendous help in getting bedding and towels for us!!! She was pleasant while we were all very angry about the bed situation. Thank you Elizabeth! Long wait for checkin. Need more staff at front desks. I reserved a room with 2 double beds for 4 people. I called twice to confirm and reiterate that I wanted 2 double beds. At checkin I said I needed 2 double beds(this was at 1:30pm) Receptionist said yes I see that is what you requested. I was told room was not ready and they would call be about 3pm when room was ready which they did. Again, a long wait for receptionist, she gave me keys to room which had a king size bed and pull out sofabed!!! I called front desk to get a room with 2 double beds as I requested and they said they had no more and because I booked with a third party (travelocity) they could do nothing about it as rooms are not guarenteed (bed types). I am angry about this situation and will rethink ever staying at a Westin hotel and I will also rethink about using travelocity.
only bad thing was the small rooms other than that it was good
FYI the rooms are real real small. Didn't bother me.
Nice efficient hotel and very conveniently located. The room was of okayish size. The attached washroom was rather awkward - can't lock the door and the wash basin was too small leading to water spilling all over the place. One day the room could not be cleaned and when we complained, the manager himself came for the apology and also offered compensating action which was very nice of him.Elevators are quick. Washroom
We loved the comfort, location, staff helpfulness, cleanliness & smooth functioning.
Near to Grand Central Roadside noise was too loud
Very close to the subway and Grand Central Station. 24 hour luggage storage after checkout and the staff was very friendly. It is on a busy street due to the location and you can hear some traffic from the room but it wasn't too loud, especially for NYC it wasn't too bad.
Location is very convenient Bed was not confortable, toiletries and towels not replaced accordingly.
Clean rooms, basic but of a good standard. Nice having a balcony albeit with no view to speak of. No real bar in hotel. No twin bedded rooms but very large bed.
the design of the hotel and rooms and its location THe shower ran cold for about 10 minutes. Also it was plumed wrong. the hot markings were freezing and the cold one was hot.
Nice Astrosphere.. Close to the theater district.. Room was Pose. Like the fact they held our bags while we roamed the museums after we checked out. Wish it had two chairs in the room, the bed was too soft and to low hurt our backs getting in and out of it. Wished we could get more than an continental breakfast from the hotels' restaurant.
The best beds!
Have stayed before year ago - it was lovely: Private Terrace on front Front desk clerk Dirty carpet and bathroom Loud loud air conditioner Terrace useless due noise of airconditioners Lumpy uncomfortable bed
Staff were courteous, helpful and polite. Really enjoyed coming back to the hotel to a Glass of wine- nice touch! The Hotel is almost ready to receive guests! Bulb missing in bed side light 201. bad batteries in most of the smoke detectors, and plumming making tapping noises in the evening. The staff was very kind, prompt and courteous in dealing with the problems.
The bed was fantastic and the room big for NY standards.Bathroom was good and because we were one of the first all was very cleanLocation good just around the corner of 5th anvenue 46 street. When we came it was just opened and some starter problems, handshower didn't work rooftop not open yet, but I'm sure it all will be fiixed and perfect in no time,would book it again for the rate I got.....hope it wasn't a beginners rate
Balconies Hot water wasn't working, apparently in most of the building, just my luck
Location good. No facility for making tea in the rooms. The extracters in the bathrooms did not work. Complementary Tea/coffee in lobby stopped at 7am.Basic internet facility should be complementary. the bathrooms are too small.
it was central and close to the bus pick up for Javits centre no cafe style dining
The room service prices seem a bit excessive
The staff were always helpful and the hotel was in a great location to shopping, Times Square and Grand Central Station The shower used cloth shower curtains so that by the second shower the water would wick out to the second curtain and onto the floor. Also there is no fan in the bathroom so it was a bit steamy when you got out.
We went to NYC just before Christmas and could not have been happier with this hotel. Although our room was small, we did not spend much time in the room and therefore it did not bother us! The staff was so friendly and helpful and the location was amazing! We would definitely stay here again on our next visit to the city!
Location was good for walking but, I was very dissappointed at how dirty smelling the lobby was. I stayed in NYC before and after a trip to the Galapagos. On the way down I stayed at a Hilton and on th way back I spent a little extra to end the holiday on a high note and chose the Intercontinental. In Asia Intercon hotels are luxurious and wonderful. The Intercon Barclay was a big dissappointment. The smell in the lobby for all 3 days was sour and foul. It reminded me of a gym locker. I hated walking through the lobby and sometimes you could smell it on the stairs before you even entered the building. Considering I paid about 100 dollars more a night then the Hilton, which was only three streets away, the room was very small and cramped. The bathroom was also very small, dirty, and the grout in the tile had not been cleaned well
Clean and comfortable upscale hotel with a very friendly and accommodating staff. The restaurant pricing, especially for breakfast, is out of control.
the location was good for the purpose of my business trip the bathroom was the size of a small closet with the smallest tub I have ever seen. the internet did not work for two days and on one day I had a cold water shower. Definitely not a 5 star hotel other than their prices and flower arrangement in the lobby
room was shabby; breakfast personnel unfriendly.
Rooms are quite larger, ceilings high. Decor is modern but not colorful. Still some areas under construction
Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was beautiful, rooms were very clean and more comfortable than home.
The 27th floor lounge
Nice staff Generally clean Great Restaurant A great basic hotel for someone on business by themselves who does not need many extras. No real hotel lobby Machine coffee No real concierge Very small room for a couple with 2 suitcases No real breakfast (snack bars put out)
Everything works. Very efficient use of space. Nice restaurant downs stairs. GREAT location across the street from GCT. No front desk to speak of. Off putting at first, but it works well.
We thought the place was clean and a good value for the money spent. It was an excellent location. Room was small but we expected that in NYC.
A lot of street noise and elevator noise from my room Are there any Whitehouse options?
Vi likte den gode beliggenheten nær Grand Central Station og Empire State Building. Rommene er ikke store, men praktiske og gode. Restauranten på hjørnet av 38th og Park Ave har gode småretter til en rimelig penge. Svært hyggelig personale. Det er skyvedører mellom rommet og baderommet, som ikke isolerer spesielt godt.
