Just returned from a two night stay at Pod 51 on east 51st and 2nd. Great hotel room was plenty big enough with space to put all my stuff out. No issues with wifi and great to be able to dock my music. Subway is really close and you can get a free map of the subway from the station. Shouldn't take more than 20m to walk to 5th avenue and it's basically turn left out of the hotel and keep walking! Staff at the hotel were fabulous really helpful nothing was any trouble. Treehaus one block up is a good breakfast option but there's plenty of choice really close by. Yes the rooms are smaller but really if you're staying in the room all day you're probably not in the right city!! Will definitely stay here again

Pod 39 is a cute and pleasant surprise. The units are new, fresh, modern, and clean. I was pleasantly surprised with the size of the spacious bathroom and rain shower head!!! The location is perfect and is steps to major tourist attractions and Grand Central Station. The only thing I would hope they invest in are better towels. The towels were small and thin. I would need 4 of them to dry me off after the shower. But this was a small thing compared to the friendly staff, clean amenities, and modern suites that Pod 39 offers. I would definitely stay here again!!!
