Starting with the "ugly" things : The rooms are very small No room service Very expensive for small rooms + no room service But then... We are talking about Manhattan. Otherwise, very good shower, comfy beds (I got a queen room in the end even tho I booked a single room), daily room cleaning, and an amazing rooftop bar (please...

Well designed, nifty see through walled elevators, upbeat vibe and nice Mexican inspired bar in the lobby. Rooms are small, but you know this going into it. BY FAR: One of the most amazing shower heads, Like a hard rain on your head. Volume!

Very good hotel with a fantastic position. The room was very little but we had no problem at all because it was very clean and comfortable. People in reception was very kind and helpful. The only negative thing was the transport from the hotel to Jfk. One boy near the desk took our reservation and told us that the price...

I only went for drinks with a friend while visiting New York for few days and I had a great evening so make sure you visit the bar and don't be shocked at the drinks prices they are worthy a visit and the views are great from up there.

We stayed as a married couple in a bunk bed room on the 8th floor, 2 rooms away from the lift for 5 nights. The beds are slightly bigger than a standard UK single and are very comfortable. Two decent depth pillows are included. There were a standard amount of hangers but we brought our own. The hairdryer is a...

The rooms are meant only to sleep, clean but so small. when one gets used to the room then it actually feels quiet cosy. The toilet is clean but with a glas door. Fortunately I was the only to use it. Linens and towels are fresh. The best was the location though.

This is not a hotel for people who want luxury, or plan to spend really any amount of time beyond sleeping in their room. I stayed here for one night for an interview in Midtown. The location was perfect - a short distance from Grand Central and walking distance to my interview. My "pod" had everything I needed to get...

I arrived at Pod 39 just before 3 pm. I had booked a Queen room (biggest of the lot) after reading other reviews about room size. Check in was fast. within 10 minutes was in my room. I was travelling solo so din't have any issues with room size. I had enough space to store my bags, walk around and...

I went on memorial weekend so there were tons of people at the hotel. Its conveniently located near everything. Grand central is a 5 min walk, Time Square is about 15 mins to get to. Central park is a quick subway ride. Room: I had a single and it was perfect. Very small but it was practical use of space....

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and although price was fair and the location was "ok", I will not come again. I can understand the "pod concept" - but this room was tiny even when compared to London. In addition, breakfast options were very poor, the staff was not very helpful or friendly and it seemed everyone was...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
