It was an interesting experience for me because I''ve never stayed in a hotel room tinier than this one. Plus it's modern and it was my first and only night in NY. My friend and I got a reasonable deal because it was still under construction early August. Looking through the roof top pics on yelp bums me out cuz it wasn't available when we were there (probably that's why it was cheaper). Room: open the door and the bed is in front of u facing toward the bathroom and the shower. The glass wall dividing the bedroom and the restroom is frosted. This was very awkward cuz I shared the room with a guy friend. It was awkward cuz I could see a blurry figure of him sitting on the toilet (ewww). I was too paranoid to bend down to pick stuff off the floor in the shower because the wall was frosted in the middle and not the bottom. Walking distance to time square. Staying there more than one night would have drove me nuts. Warning: the sliding bathroom door handle is a hole, not a doorknob. That means one of u should get out of the room while the other goes #2

This hotel changed the way I felt about traveling and staying at hotels. The minimalist approach really does give you everything you need without the fluff. The bed was incredibly comfortable, the outlets for device charging were convenient and the exposed rack to hang clothes instead of a dresser or closet was a much more efficient use of space. The provided toiletries were high quality and the room was spotless. They've also re-imagined the 'business space' of hotels by placing multiple wi-fi enabled iPads across the lobby that are all connected to the commercial printers. I will 100% stay here for my next NYC trip!

Had a great stay at the pod 39 fantastic facilities - the rooms are very cosy but feel just right for what they were - I would recommend unloading your suitcase into the drawer and clothes rail provided. Location is great 5-10 mins away from the central station which is great to get anywhere in New York via the subway and about 10-15 mins away from Times Square so very good stay 😄

Great outdoor rooftop space with a nice view from Midtown East. People definitely come here for the setting as opposed to the drinks. This place used to get overcrowded, but now they have a system where you have to sign in with a hostess, so the flow is a little bit more controlled. A nice setting to chill, but there's not enough seating, they should put more high-top tables out for people to stand around. Cocktails weren't as good as I remembered. This is a good place to start the night or to take a visiting out-of-towner for the view, but not sure if anything else will be very impressive.

Good location for tourism. Nice rooms with modern arrangements, though small. The Wi-Fi was serviceable, but quite slow. The staff was friendly and in general my experience was good, but you can't avoid feeling you overpaid, even though it's New York. There's a convenient restaurant with interesting food on the ground floor, but it's a bit pricey.

Having previously tried POD 51 we were keen to give POD 39 a try. We booked for a total of 5 nights and stayed in a full POD which comprised of a small bathroom, a double bed and a desk. Like the other hotel, compact but more than comfortable. The room was clean and had everything we needed. Like POD 50, 39 is all about location. You could not ask for a better location. Close to grand central for the metro and to the main shops on fifth avenue. Local amenities near by where also great so for me this is the key benefit of this hotel. It is good value given the location. The other thing we liked was the roof top bar. You get a great view but the service pretty much sucked. They had no soft drinks so I ordered a beer. The bearded bar man then handed me a beer that he had poured for a previous customer and that had been standing there for quite some time. So this guy clearly didn't take much pride in his work and it let down the experience. All in all a good hotel if you want something affordable and in a great location.
