The newly opened Pod Times Square Hotel has sleek and simple rooms that “maximize space and minimize waste.” They range in size from bunk, full and queen to one- and two-bedroom apartments suites. All rooms feature ultra-comfy beds, plenty of plugs for charging your gadgets, cleverly placed TVs and storage areas, bathrooms with rainfall showers, and soundproof windows to mute the sounds of the city below. Apartment suites come with full kitchens, dining room tables and living rooms.

On-site amenities exclusive to hotel guests include an indoor/outdoor sitting space with panoramic views, fitness center and self-serve laundry room. The hotel has a dedicated concierge team that will help guests get exclusive discounts at local venues and attractions and book free walking tours around the city. The on-site bar, The Polynesian, serves tropical cocktails and snacks in a tiki atmosphere.

The convenient location in Hell’s Kitchen puts it within a few blocks of Times Square, Port Authority, Bryant Park, several major subway lines and a variety of dining and activity options, like seeing a Broadway show, biking along the Hudson River or taking a Circle Line cruise.

I was not able to travel due to Covid-19. I am still waiting to hear back from Travelzoo to see if Travelscape will issue a refund. The Podd Hotel advised I should get a refund as they were not accepting reservations due to the pandemic, but they were unable to issue due to this being booked through Travelzoo. This process trying to contact Travelscape through Travelzoo has been very frustrating.

We rented a queen room and a bunk room for our family of four. 2 young adults and two parents for dinner and a Broadway show. The pod was in perfect walking location to both.

The square metal corners on the queen size bed are the one item that I would change in the design.

We really enjoyed staying at the Pod Times Square and the bunk beds were amazing! The only thing is that we wished it was closer to Times Square, as it was a few blocks away. It was very close to pretty much all of the major subway lines and theaters, though, so that was very convenient. Walking alone at night made me a bit nervous, as there seemed to be quite a few homeless or shady people, but we didn't run into any issues. We both agree that we'd stay there again!

I spent the night at the Pod Times Square with my daughter as part of her finishing elementary celebration. The hotel was very cool and funky! Superbly clean and the staff were very accommodating. My daughter loved the individually wrapped Swedish fish at the front desk. The bellhop gave us several Pod emergency ponchos to carry around with us as the day started off cloudy and drizzly. The hotel also offers free walking tours which we weren’t able to take advantage of. My ONLY criticism is that the beds were comfy but the pillows were cheap and lumpy. Also the shower curtain smelled a little mildewy until I showered (but I am very sensitive to mildew smells).
