Eeek!
Finding it was a bit tough, lobby was very nice, hallways were so dark it was scary. The rooms were very tiny and the shared bathrooms were a joke. BUT...the location was convenient and at $272 for one night, it was best i could get.

Close to subway, restaurants, good but not great
My stay at Pod 51 was good, though it could've been better. The room was small, which I expected. I fit in nicely, though, with my two bags. My issues were that I found a lot of hairs on my bed, thankfully only on the bedspread, but under the covers. Housekeeping tended to leave the bathroom window open. I had my toiletries on the windowsill in the bathroom, so I wasn't really happy to see the window open when I came back to my room after a day out (especially when it was really hot out - made my room hotter for no reason). Housekeeping also moved some of my things, such as my ziplock bags yhat were drying by the sink. The AC was really loud, though, I learned to tune it out during my stay. These things are minor issues, but they definitely keep the hotel at a good level, as opposed to excellent. The hotel is near a couple of subway stations and many restaurants. It's also not too far away to walk to, for example, Rockefeller Center.

No frills comfort with great staff
Pod51 has great staff and a convenient location for work and food. Just wish there was coffee - there’s no access to coffee maker or fridge. But it’s quiet, pretty comfortable and reasonable.

Nice, but Queen sized is the better choice
Staff is great and has good restaurants nearby. The double is small; the Queen is a much more comfy size. Reasonably priced and absolutely will stay again, but will spend the extra for the Queen.
