About Pod 39

Stylish, smart, and optimally designed hotel in Midtown

Close to NYC trademarks

Pod 39 is a 6-minute walk from Grand Central Station and a short stroll from the shops, seasonal ice rink, and carousel at Bryant Park. In less than 30 minutes you could meander to Times Square, Central Park South, or the Museum of Modern Art.

The buzz of Midtown

The Broadway theater district and Madison Square Garden are west, where you could might a sports game, a concert, or the Westminster Dog Show. Rockefeller Center is to the north, and you can recharge with a cupcake at the famous Magnolia Bakery on 49th Street.

Amazing rooftop terrace

Pod 39 offsets its compact rooms with ample space in the lobby, playroom, bar, and spectacular rooftop lounge, all equipped with free WiFi. The hotel’s taqueria and cantina Salvation Taco is foodie-approved and festively decorated. Enjoy a good book in the library.

Cleverly designed

With so much to see outside your guestroom, Pod 39 makes sure to give you the most comfortable yet efficient essentials. Snug rooms with pillow-top mattresses, flat-screen TVs, in-room WiFi, and extra soundproofing add up to an enjoyable stay at a budget price.

Great hotel
Really loved the Pod. The rooms are small (was excepted) but really good. The glass bathroom was ‘interesting’

Nice little break in NYC
I had a lovely stay. It was my birthday & the staff were amazing. They delivered cupcakes & a hand written card to my room as a birthday treat. Lovely little touch & it made me feel special. I will definitely be back :)

Brilliant 25th Birthday !!
I was celebrating my 25th birthday, here 2 nights. 22nd-24th Jan. The hotel staff were absolutely incredible!! The two ladies at check in were so friendly, bubbly & warm. There was also a co-worker who greets the guests & he was lovely. Later that evening the receptionist gave me a selection of cakes & a card signed by the hotel staff to wish me a happy birthday. I felt so special! The bar staff were so polite & made the best cocktails. All in all, I would stay here again because the staff were amazing!!!

Good hotel, great location
Great location, right in the heart of the city with lots of attractions within walking distance including grand central, Empire State, Chrysler building, rockerfella centre, shopping in 5th, MSG and Central Park. Room provides everything you need for a short stay, small and basic but very comfortable. Staff were friendly, checkin/out was hassle free. If your looking for a reasonably priced hotel in a central location then this is definitely the place to stay. Lots of local bars, restaurants and cafes nearby, there is also a taco place on the ground floor of the hotel which is open until late. Only one of three lifts working until the last day which was abit of a pain when your on the 10th floor but these things happening guess. We will definitely be coming back here

Great budget hotel, but ignore the elevator staff
I've stayed here multiple times, and have received a consistently good experience. Don't get me wrong, this is a budget hotel in NYC, and so the rooms are tiny (seriously!), but they are comfortable and safe. The hotel is in a great location for Grand Central (and the subway), and there are plenty of food and tourist stuff within easy reach. I can just about work in the hotel -- the wifi is very flakey at times, and the tiny desk is impractical to work at for more than an hour In regards to downsides, there is a popular bar on the rooftop of the hotel, and so this can be noisy at the weekends if you are on a higher floor. The staff controlling the elevators after 6pm also act like idiots at times, and I've been challenged as to whether I'm staying at the hotel, told to wait when the elevators were empty, and also told to get out to allow "VIPs" to ride to the bar. Now that I'm aware of this, it isn't a big deal (and I just throw some shade back :-) ), but you can tell that this confuses/upsets people that are new to the hotel
