Booked a room for a friend recently and asked for the nights of the 18th and 19th of September. I was quoted $359 plus tax, which I thought seemed a little pricey (rooms frequently go for around $90 a night), but sure. I asked for a receipt of the reservation, but was told receipts of reservation weren't done upfront. I should have pushed back on this, but c'est la vie. When my friend checked in, it turned out the booking was only available for one night. The total came to over $400 for one night. I hate to raise a stink, but I feel like I've been fleeced, and my friend had to find last minute accommodations for the second night of his stay. Hotel staff were unhelpful regarding a refund.

I know what to expect with a Pod, so my issues were not with the size. When I'm in NYC all I need a hotel room for is sleeping and getting ready to go out, so the fact that it's a glorified closet doesn't bother me––it's what you pay for that glorified closet. For the same price, you can get a normal-sized room at another decent hotel, and for less, you can stay at one of the other Pods in Manhattan (they are much nicer in my experience!). I only booked one night but inquired about a second. I was told it'd be $399 and almost laughed out loud. (This was for the solo queen room, btw.) Cons: - The bed was very hard and uncomfortable - The shower head began leaking and soaked the floor of the "bathroom" because of its placement right above the toilet - As I was checking out, I witnessed a couple attempt to drop their bags off early, which is standard practice at any hotel. I heard the front desk person tell them they don't have any storage room. I know that's a lie because I've seen reviews here that mention early luggage drop off! - I also witnessed a guest complain that the extra towels and other things they requested the day before were not brought to the room. Pros: - Good temp control in the room - Very clean compared to a lot of other affordable hotels in the city - Check out is at noon, which I really appreciate since when I'm in NYC I like to stay out late and sleep in.

Thank you for your feedback. Our pricing does fluctuate by lead time and availability. Upon our reopening, we were unable to store luggage as we increased our staffing and performed training. We are happy to share that we are once again storing luggage prior to check-in and after check-out. I hope you enjoyed your trip to Brooklyn!

Right in Williamsburg center, it was our first stay in Brooklyn, we paid a lot of Airbnb and hotels in Manhattan on previous trips and we wanted to just stay in one place without breaking the bank, that was it! The rooms are small SMALL... BUT we were out the whole day! The shower is where the toilets are, so it's everything on the same tiny spot but it works! You are just here to sleep and shower anyway. We had the best time, ate at the best spot in Williamsburg, and the service was great! We will certainly make it our hotel again next time we are in NYC!

Super affordable but doesn't feel cheap at all, the only drawback is the rooms are pretty small but that's where you are saving money. I spent a week here whilst working in Brooklyn. Room was good but I can imagine a couple may feel a bit crammed in after a couple of nights (the toilet/shower is in the room, not much privacy). No complaints about the facilities, bar was excellent, shame the weather spoiled any plans of getting up on the rooftop terrace Local area (Williamsburg) is fantastic, 10 mins walk from the nearest metro station (or something like that)

Really enjoyed my stay here, it was in a really great location ( super close to subway and amenities ) recommend eating at tacombi across the road from great Mexican food! Room was great, towels and sheets were changed every day! Only down side is, you do have to pay resort fees and give a security deposit upon check in however I have not been refunded my security deposit yet ( after emailing and calling the hotel multiple times ) and we checked out over a month ago! However great hotel and would stay here again.
