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.
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
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.
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!
Location Everything other than location
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.
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.
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.
Clean, compact and great for an overnight business trip You have to request an iron and ironing board ... other than that, it's fine.
It has everything you could need in a compact package! Great location! If it had a mini fridge and microwave it would be the best place to stay in NYC for the money!
Beliggenheten er bra og ok frokosten. Triste og slitte rom. kommer nok ikke til å velge dette hotellet neste gang.
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.
Super beliggenhet og god atmosfære.Mange muligheter for å spise og drikke både på hotellet og i nærheten. Kort avstand til metro.
Hotellet ligger meget sentralt til i New York Litt oppussing snart hadde gjort seg. Men ellers OK.
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.
Fungerte godt ved innsjekking - utsjekking - vi fikk mange råd og vink når vi ønsket det, kart utdelt ved ankomst, deilige senger og godt renhold.
Beliggenhet og service Nei
Hyggelig skrankebetjening og proff guiding til ulike aktiviteter og steder ble god ivaretatt av egen person dedikert for dette.
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
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.
Sentral beliggenhet Hygggelig betjening Gode senger Eget lite kjøkken Rimelig ut fra standard -
Veldig sentralt i New York, Det var veldig gammel airkondisjon anlegg på rommene, som bråket veldig mye.
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.
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.
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..
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.
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.
FYI the rooms are real real small. Didn't bother me.
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.
Hotel stay was right on point after a long day thanks
Easy access to Grand Central and in the heart of NYC.
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
only bad thing was the small rooms other than that it was good
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
We loved the comfort, location, staff helpfulness, cleanliness & smooth functioning.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
central position poor view, and breakfast service in restaurant
Great location, low rates. Very poor maid service, hotel environment very quiet & boring, not a place you would hang out in.
location room size -small
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.
The location was great...Everything was in walking distance. Definitely would stay here again.
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
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 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!!
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!
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
More dining, social areas
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).
Extremely small rooms. Loud air conditioner. Needs work
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)
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.
The 27th floor lounge
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.
A lot of street noise and elevator noise from my room Are there any Whitehouse options?
Bathroom well appointed but very small Bedding very comfortable as was A/C Staff very friendly and helpful, Room also felt very clean. Found the bedroom & bathroom to be small, even for NY.
Hotel was clean and quiet, staff was friendly. Well located close to Grand Central station. Rooms were spacious for NYC and well appointed.
clean rooms, large for nyc, super helpful and friendly staff!!!
This was a quiet and comfortable hotel. It has an on sight restaurant and bar. Staff very accommodating. Room temperature just right and bed comfy.
The location was excellent, and the room was very comfortable, well appointed and clean. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Special thanks to the girl from Nicaragua tending the bar. Our room, which faced the bar in the garden, was a bit noisy in the early evening.
Common sitting areas have nice ambiance and rooms are comfortable and well appointed. Did not expect the contiguous Irish Restaurant & Bar which served excellent food. Provided a much more upscale experience than the price tag prmised Only thing that did not work was the in room phone connections to the front desk and other services but the staff quickly compensated.
Very intimate feel. Stepping off the streets is stepping into a calm and elegant world. Love the attached ba, Wheeltapper,r that has outdoor seating, which is covered and heated in the winter. I only saw it in the winter but it a great little spot. Central but hidden courtyard. I would definitely go back to this hotel. Would've been nice to have coffee in the lobby and more lobby seating. That area was nicely done but hard to linger.
Love the Wheeltapper pub. Love Irish feel of the hotel. Centrally located near GCS and 4.5,6 trains Very nice staff Cozy rooms Small rooms Wifi not free in rooms
The Pub was authentic and nice. We had small problem with our door lock, The staff solved our problems relatively fast .
The staff was very nice and most accomodating when I arrived and my room wasn't ready due to a late departing flight crew. They put me in another room that was larger than the one I had booked. The hotel was in a great location and convenient to many attractions. There is a great sandwich shop just around the corner as well. I will definitely stay with them again when I go back to NYC.
The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in! The room was very large for NYC and the shower head (rain shower) in the bathroom was amazing!! I also liked that there was a long hallway separating the door, bathroom, closet and vanity from the bedroom. Great location - close to Grand Central. There was a wonderful breakfast place a couple of blocks away (Zucker's) that we visited a couple of times - excellent quality and price. I was only able to reserve a King size bed online and would have liked 2 double beds. The hotel was going to accomodate us with 2 beds, but wanted $50 more a night. They did upgrade us to a larger studio that had 2 comfortable chairs and a table, which was great!
Issue with we form in first two categories. I was a business/solo traveler. The rating section was operating.
Staff was amazing, room was fabulous. I usually stay at the Dream-Downtown and the rooms here are bigger (as is the bathroom). Overall a great value for my money. No actual lobby or bar to hang out in..
The bed was really comfortable and the room very quiet for New York. I think the shower was recently renovated and was terrific. The rain-style shower head was mounted high so that you didn't have to duck under it and there was also shower wand if you needed it. I also loved that the HD TV had HD cable so that we weren't constantly watching images that were squeezed or stretched. The staff was really friendly and helpful. The only negative was that they're remodeling the bar and restaurant so there was no food or drink available other than room service and the continental breakfast. When that's finished it should be a big improvement.
Room size comfort cleanliness and contemporary A little further from Times Square than I expected and the staff was unfriendly
The room was bigger than we anticipated. It was really big. The location is great; very close to grand central station. It was quiet and better than staying in times square. There were several restaurants near by and 5th avenue was just a few blocks away. Hotel staff was very nice and helpful. We were pleased. The fixtures in the bathroom were coming off the walls. Cleanliness was a tiny bit off. Looked like either blood or ketchup on the curtains (I am going with ketchup). Need to stay above 7th floor or you will hear the music from the lounge. Could have used a microwave/refrigerator.
14th floor room was VERY quiet. Great for NYC.
Two of the four front desk staff with whom I interacted were incredibly helpful and friendly; the other two not so much (see negatives). Great beds, nice rooms. Ideal location. I had lost my phone in a local taxi and the driver tried to return it to me a few hours later when it was discovered. The front desk staff on the night shift refused to call my room to let me know she had it. Subsequently, the entire next day I was making calls to try to locate it. I even asked Front desk if anything had been reported and turned in and they said NO. Several hours later, she called me and delivered to me in person, noting that she attempted the night before to get the phone to me with no luck and no cooperation. Unbelievable! Thanks to incompetent night time desk staff, I spent the entire day wondering where my phone was. They could have rang my room and told me she had the phone. I was very annoyed by this. Big negative in my view.
Unbelievably, my tiny room did not have a dresser. When I inquired about this the indifferent desk manager told me that the smaller rooms sometimes did not come with one! Living in this room out of my bag for five nights was a joy. Upon check out, there were three different staff members at the desk, none of whom could comprehend that there was not a dresser. So they went to check it out --- and big surprise, no dresser. (Apparently they were concerned that I was blind.) No apology, no offer of discount, no reasonable explanation. Had it not been a completely packed week in New York, I would have fled the first night. Oh, the shades didn't work properly either. Never again.
Room size was bigger than avg. in NYC Mattress was comfortable Zero noise on 14F TV was great quality Pillows were uncomfortable to rest on. Nothing else we found uncomfortable or bad to review. that's it. SP
