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.
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 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!
Location Everything other than location
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.
Clean, compact and great for an overnight business trip You have to request an iron and ironing board ... other than that, it's fine.
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
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.
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, 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.
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.
Clean rooms, comfortable beds, close to good restaurants and subways. What's not to like? :) Small space (as advertised)
Clean and convient to my meeting Friday night a group staying of the same floor came in at 1am yelling,laughing and banging the doors.
As a solo traveler staying in hostels mostly, I picked pod 51 and I was so happy with this place. As a hostel stayer saying your very happy is far in between. Very clean and very cute. Twin beds are bigger than the twins you usually see. We both had our own tv and outlet and sink! Right in midtown close to train and Ess-a-bagel! Would recommend this place to anyone.
Clean. Private bathroom in our room. Accessible rooftop. Worked well for our spontaneous day in New York. Noise from hallway. High traffic from shared bathroom.
I liked the location. The room is tiny with no room to properly open a suitcase. Not a nice place to hang out. Also, you can hear everything in the halls. I was so happy to move to another hotel with a bigger room.
It was the perfect place to crash. We didn't need anything other than a room. My 6 year old loves the bunk beds. The shared bathroom was clean and we never had to wait for one. I would totally stay there again.
Good location, small rooms, thin walls
The price was low-ish My room smelled like cat urine. The shower was in the hallway.
I appreciated using the common spaces to catch up on work. Definitely check out the rooftop patio! I was glad that there were multiple bathrooms per floor and I never had to wait for the shower. The artwork and color scheme gave the whole place a cool vibe. Location was close to transit, the UN building, and a delicious bagel shop around the corner. The room was even smaller than the pictures seemed to indicate, but it was perfect for my budget and still met all my needs.
C u again next year!!!
Everything was great with the exception of our next door neighbour, who chained smoked both in his room and in the communal bathroom. He was on his cell phone constantly at all hours of the night, talking loud and sometimes yelling while going between his room and the bathroom to smoke. We complained twice to front desk staff who didn't appear to do anything about it as it went on for 4 days.
Small clean room, easy check in, good internet Rooms are for sleeping, not hanging out, but completely met my needs - I was traveling for business.
Hotellet ligger meget sentralt til i New York Litt oppussing snart hadde gjort seg. Men ellers OK.
Super beliggenhet og god atmosfære.Mange muligheter for å spise og drikke både på hotellet og i nærheten. Kort avstand til metro.
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.
Veldig hyggelig personale, vi fikk gratis oppgradering da vi sjekket inn. Fantastisk utsikt fra rommet, og veldig komfortable senger. God standard.
Romslige og rene rom med fin utsikt. Hyggelig personale. Litt usentralt til å ligge på Manhatten.
Hyggelig personale. rene rom. fin utsikt Ble lovet king size seng, men var ikke det. Noe slitte møbler.
Vi bodde i 36. etg. av 40, og utsikten derfra var formidabel. Helt fantastisk. Hotellbetjeningen var veldig høflige og hyggelige. Hotellet var helt etter hva vi forventet til prisen vi betalte. Vi bodde i den eldre fløyen, men rommet var stort og greit og framfor alt ryddig og rent til enhver tid. Og den fantastiske utsikten skal en lete lenge etter. Rett ut i The Skyline.
Hyggelig og kunnskapsrik betjening. Kort avstand til det meste. Flott utsikt fra rommet. Klassisk og god bar på hotellet. Litt dyr frokost. Spis heller på en diner like ved.
Absolutely beautiful hotel in a great location! Loved my stay there!! Charging 16.00 per day for wifi is insane
location room wasnt clean properly by housekeeping
Staff was very cordial and gave excellent customer service. Charge for Wi-Fi was unexpected for a $700 a night room.
Location, good neibourhood , good loung and snack shop . Also rooms were good side and clean with proper functioning bathroom. I wish they had a sit down restaurant of their own. Although they are close to restaurants on the street.
Large rooms, excellent location
Decor, location, cleanliness $16.00 for wifi
Beautiful hotel, incredible view and far enough away from the craziness of Times Square but a pretty easy walk to wherever you want to go. I was skeptical because of the deal we got on hotels.com but it was an awesome spot! No closet in the hotel room.
Nice ambiance. Good elevators to get to room efficiently Poor housekeeping. Bathroom smelled musty. They forgot to leave washcloths one time. Then forgot to leave shampoo another time. When we called for shampoo to shower took 1.5 hours to come. Also asked for blankets when checked in which never came.
Our room directly overlooked St. Patrick's Cathedral and it was gorgeous. The room was spacious (unusual for NY), clean and comfortable. There's a wonderful café right off the beautiful hotel lobby for specialty coffees and French pastries, and the fitness center is amazing. Plenty of bar/restaurants within walking distance, as are many of the tourist attractions such as Rock Center. I would highly recommend this hotel, and will look into staying there again. There was nothing that I disliked about this hotel, although I would have preferred a lower internet rate (it is $16/day).
Convenient location to everything we were doing and the Molton Brown products are terrific! It's a luxurious hotel and a lovely interlude from the chaos of Manhattan. We asked for some champagne flutes and the ones we received were delivered dirty. We called and asked for replacements and it took well over an hour to receive them - at that point we had washed the flutes ourselves in the bathroom sink.
Staff was great, service excellent, rooms were huge in the Tower No coffe in room, very pricey to have sent to your room
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.
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.
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.
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
Easy access to Grand Central and in the heart of NYC.
only bad thing was the small rooms other than that it was good
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
Hotel stay was right on point after a long day thanks
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.
FYI the rooms are real real small. Didn't bother me.
We loved the comfort, location, staff helpfulness, cleanliness & smooth functioning.
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.
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.
Near to Grand Central Roadside noise was too loud
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.
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.
Sentral beliggenhet Hygggelig betjening Gode senger Eget lite kjøkken Rimelig ut fra standard -
Suveren beligenhet, fantastisk vennlig og hjelpsom personale. Store rom og deilige senger. Veldig hyggelig club room. Nei jeg likte alt.
God beliggenhet, hyggelig bellboy, lite hotell med personlig "touch". bedre heikapasitet
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.
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.
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)
A lot of street noise and elevator noise from my room Are there any Whitehouse options?
The 27th floor lounge
Very nice hotel, large room, and extremely pleasant staff. Hard to say it was a deal at $289/night, but it is NY. I've stayed in lousy places for $200/night, so I'd gladly take this option. I highly recommend.
Excellent staff, easy to get to the hotel, location couldn't be better breakfast wasn't good enoguh, some fruit or cereal would be apreciated
Extremely friendly staff; super-clean rooms that were good in size for NYC and the workout facilities were clean. The usual hotel soaps, shampoos, etc. were all Aveda products, which were a nice touch. Reviews I'd read before booking said the breakfast was nothing special and that was accurate. It was a continental breakfast - coffee, juice, toast/bagels, yogurt and cottage cheese. For the price it would have been nicer to have at least cereal and/or oatmeal with milk as an option.
The staff is very helpful with whatever your needs are, the rooms are very clean and the hotels location is great. (5 min walk from 5th avenue) The breakfast was, as most hotels abroad, not up to norwegian standards.
that it was a suite with a kitchenette
Complementary breakfast was was skimpy.
Good sized room with good facilities. Friendly and efficient staff who made you most welcome. Lifts that were fast and efficient. Excellent internet facilities
The hotel was in a great area, convenient to everything! It was a really nice hotel and staff were friendly and extremely helpful!
The staff was great. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Free Wifi and breakfast a real bonus! Close to subway stations. Great Location!! Construction noise next door is very annoying!!
Doorman - Matthew Kelly - excellent. Over crowded breakfast room.
Staff was great. Location was perfect for us. We would stay there again Did not get king rooms. We were told it was upon request. Nothing in our paper work indicated this.
It was a small hotel and very quiet. The breakfast needs some upgrading.
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.
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 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.
Hotel was clean and quiet, staff was friendly. Well located close to Grand Central station. Rooms were spacious for NYC and well appointed.
The Pub was authentic and nice. We had small problem with our door lock, The staff solved our problems relatively fast .
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was beautiful, rooms were very clean and more comfortable than home.
room was shabby; breakfast personnel unfriendly.
Clean and comfortable upscale hotel with a very friendly and accommodating staff. The restaurant pricing, especially for breakfast, is out of control.
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
Rooms are quite larger, ceilings high. Decor is modern but not colorful. Still some areas under construction
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
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!
it was central and close to the bus pick up for Javits centre no cafe style dining
Hotel was excellent! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The room was very nice and clean with very comfortable bed. Very close to the sites. 10 minute walk from Rockefeller, 20 minute to Time Square. Very safe area, would definitely recommend.
Great location! Hotel was within walking distance of pretty much everything! Staff was extremely friendly & accomodating. when in NY again for fun, this would be the first place I would look to book. Not overpriced but still seemed like a luxury stay. Thanks Marriott! Nothing. the stay was amazing
Great suite, stylish and comfortable furnishings, and large, modern bathroom at fair price and good service. Environment conducive to business and tourism with family, privileged and quiet location, with all facilities. The view from the low level is not pretty, facing other buildings, but it does not bother. The restaurant does not have many choices, but is reasonably priced and a good last minute option. Anyway, around there are several alternatives to services and restaurants.
