Everything was perfect
Beautiful space with clean rooms and very good service. We only stayed one night but we look forward to returning.
My husband and I were traveling with our 2 adult children and their traveling companions, so we booked 3 rooms. All rooms were spacious and comfortable. Decor was trendy, with high end amenities. We loved the rooftop bar and had a great meal at the attached restaurant. Location was perfect. Overall, a great stay. Some of the furniture in the room was showing some wear. And the desk chair was the only chair in the room. Also, the closet was very small. Not enough space to hang our clothes and coats.
The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.
Check in and out the staff were pleasant. Comfortable beds. Too focused on being trendy. Was advertised as a 4-5 star. More like a 3-4 star No coffee makers in room.
The staff was very helpful and very friendly!
We loved the layout of the room, the cleanliness, the speed of the elevators. Even staying directly next to the elevator wasn't a problem. Staff were very nice. The glass wall separating the bathroom from the bedroom is a big problem for us. I can't think of anyone I'd be comfortable staying in this room with. If I were alone, it'd be great.
Great location, yes the rooms are small hence the name Pod however you're in New York, you're not really spending much time in them. The rooms are very modern and the shower is great.
location, honesty of one of the staff telling us not to eat there. e-mailed me one price, when I got to hotel, quoted me another price.
In a city where 3 star hotels are above $250 per night, POD 39 rises at a fenominal location, with modern clean and fresh look at a fraction of the price.... Staff is excellent and the rooms are small- cruise ship size, but that's a great compromise for the bvenefits you get... HVAC system was great and the shower is the best ever.... Some of the electrical outlets didnt work and could not be fixed..
Clean, compact and great for an overnight business trip You have to request an iron and ironing board ... other than that, it's fine.
Sure the room was tight but the bed was comfortable and everything worked fine in the bathroom. The location is wonderful and so is the value. I will return. Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom facilities very good
Great location, at an NYC cheap price. The room got completely dark at night. I couldn't hear much noise from the street or any noise from other rooms. The hotel itself was well kept and I felt safe. The comforter on the bed was only mostly clean, and the door to the bathroom was dirty also. You can clearly hear whatever is going on in the hallway, even when your door is closed. The bed wasn't sower comfortable.
It was my first trip to New York. I was really impressed by the staffs and everyone at Pod 39. Very efficient and valuable hotel in New York. The location is very convenience. The hotel room was comfortable for one person or two people. I'm surprised of how clean the room was. The hotel maintain the cleanliness very well. Very reasonable prices. I wish they had a small fridge.
Great shower and comfortable bed. Awesome location. Very small. Needed one more mirror and had a great place on the empty wall above the desk. Peep hole in the door had been pushed out and was filled with toilet paper. Bathroom sink was clogged up and wouldn't drain even after maintenance supposedly fixed it. Didn't have extra rolls of toilet paper and had to go to front desk to request more. Also no ice machine. Had to go downstairs to the bar and they looked at us like we were crazy when we ask them for a cup of ice.
Location Everything other than location
I really enjoyed my stay at Pod39. The hotel was very nicely decorated, definitely a "trendy" hotel. I know they have many room options - I stayed in the bunk bed room which was very small and New York-like. The beds were really comfortable. I would most recommend this place for people traveling alone or with a small group (although the bigger rooms might be good for families - there is a bar/restaurant attached to the lobby, though, so keep that in mind). The price was quite good for an NYC hotel, and the location was great - I was able to walk to all the Broadway theatres as well as Koreatown near Herald Square. Also fairly close to a subway station and Grand Central. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and would definitely stay here again! The room was so small there was no ironing board - I didn't ask the front desk what my options were because my clothes weren't that badly wrinkled, so there may be a way to get your clothes ironed. It's not that big of a deal, really!
Great service and nice rooms Nothing
19th Fl room was clean and very quiet, bedding was high-quality. Near (but not too near) Penn Station. Small bedroom, but big bathroom. No closet, just a small cabinet that could not accommodate a business suit, much less an overcoat. Elevators extremely slow.
Very comfortable, great location, friendly and helpful staff. Those iHome alarm clocks are pretty unreliable. Nothing against The Roger, but I do like to play music in my room and they rarely seem to work.
Location Staff was unable to inform us (when we checked-in) of movie being filmed on the hotel's street, and surrounding street. Numerous street closures. Was not informed by staff ahead of a additional $20 a night fee from the hotel.
Just entrance Very small space of room, very expensive if you think about cost vs. benefits. Even breakfast of us$ 24,50 and us$ 6,53 for a bottle of water???? The most expensive experience that I had when I am trevelling all around the world during last 20 years!!!!!!!
Large room was clean and recent renovation Couple blocks from 34th st subway Tiny bath but was clean and modern
I loved the terrace facility , made a big difference to me comfort. I will use this property again when visiting New York. First room I was allocated was way to small , requested a change and reception was very accommodating.
I liked the modern design and the crisp clean linens. Unable to control temperature of room. Also found a large roach crawling on the floor. The staff rectified the situation immediately.
The staff was excellent; courteous, helpful, engaging and friendly. The room was spotless and comfortable with nice amenities. I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely return.
Nice staff, comfortable mattress and linens, great shower, funky style and great location - walk to everything and close to subway Ultra small bathroom sink and counter, A/C didn't cool the room below 72 even with the thermostat turned down to 60. Bed also on a platform, and corner of the base jutted out far enough that I whacked my shins on it to the point of heavy bruises - totally my fault but just beware!!
Great service. Very clean. Rooms weren't spacious but very clean and modern. Extremely comfortable bed and bedding
Nestled into a quieter part of Manhattan (or at least not as hopping as Times Square) the Roger feels like a bit of an oasis. The hotel did a great job of converting its rooms so they don't feel like an old apartment with a fresh coat of paint and an over-sized photo of old Chelsea. The lobby is pleasant, there is a small, intimate cafe on the landing and the rooms are well-appointed and comfortable. This was my first time and would stay again.
Stunning hotel. Stayed here for 4th of July weekend. Location is amazing, room is amazing and staff was amazing. Will be back next time while I'm in NYC. Parking is a hassle and valet is 55$ a night.
Most everything. My only facilities detraction was the shower water temperature bounced around. The location is not in the middle of anything, but it is close to a lot.
we were checked in really quick . breakfast was enjoyable . staff at reception were realy helpful in directions and questions . dinner was very good in the evening and brendan bar was very enjoyable bar to drink in. but location location location ,would not be beaten heating system was noisy and lifts slow during busy times.but not bad enough to put us off staying here in the future
the bed was very comfortable and bug free..! could of done with tea/coffee facilities in room though, staff were brilliant.
The most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Room was cold in November, as heat had not been turned on.
Very nice staff 206 should be a storage closet! Nestled between two fire doors, starting at 4am, the two fire doors slam prohibiting any sleep!!
the location was great! close to times square, empire state bldg. and 5th avenue. Also just steps away from subway. I would stay there again. The staff was very friendly. They are remodeling. the hotel is going to be very nice once completed. Our room was recently remodeled and it was tastefully done.
Perfect location, just a few steps from major stores and 15 min walk to Times Square. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Just two elevators. For some rooms you could not control the heating, just the cooling air.
It's a nice modern boutique feeling hotel. Staff was nice. After a night of jack hammering (location issue more than their fault) there was no hot water at all in the morning. They refunded a portion of my bill but it was brutal. They should consider also soundproofing the Windows more.
They people were great Lack of coffee maker / limited to one coffee per day..
The front desk staff was excellent. The linens were very nice. Blow dryer didn't work. Called housekeeping for clean towels and replacement blow dryer. Waited an hour. Never showed up. Later they cleaned room and left clean towels but no washcloths. It has potential just have not worked out all the kinks yet.
Location is great and the subway station is just in the corner of the block. Comlimentary breakfast is just OK, however if you are a familiy, it is important to have breakfast in the hotel in New York. Breakfast is served in the nearby bar& grill and its atmosphere is great. One of the front office staff was very kind and helpful, so I would like to thank her for everthing that she has done. The hotel is very old and needs complete renovation. The rooms are not large enough to accomodate a familiy of four. It seemed the most unclean hotel during our visit to USA. Housekeeping staff is interesting (I guess they need a short course to learn how to behave to customers). In conclusion, location is OK, but nothing else...
I like this hotel... Friendly staff...excelent location
They charge $14.95 for wifi in your room. The Lobby furniture is very old no back support. & Very saggy
The complimentary happy hour in the lobby was a nice treat for hotel guests. Although, there seemed to be many attendees who were not hotel guests. I didn't like the smell in the hotel or my room. It smelled like pets and found out later the hotel was pet friendly - not a fan. I also didn't care for the decor in the hallways or room I stayed in. It seemed very dated and in desperate need of some modern updating. I also felt the complimentary toiletries were very disappointing and so was the $5.99 charge for printing tickets from a desk computer (labeled business center - very weak). The housekeeping service was very, very noisy each morning and the rooms weren't cleaned up to normal hotel standards.
Whenever I visit NYC, I always stay at Affinia. Great hotel. Friendly staff, large clean rooms. Excellent location.
Nice staff very helpful great experience front desk excellent would recommend highly
Location was great and staff were courteous. Decor is modern. Shower was dirty on arrival with hair from prior guest. When arriving we turned on the lights and a cockroach scurried across the floor. The room was hot and The air conditioner didn't work.
Older building, recently updated. Lots of charm, yet very modern. Location wad terrific. Hotel was spotless. Pillows on bed were small.
Clean and spacious room The only reason why i booked this hotel is for the rooftop and you guys completly ruined my stay by closing the rooftop for a private event the ONE day i booked. Good to know that no matter how much cash you shell out youll still get beat over the head because of rich people wanting to close off a whole area of a hotel. Horriible experience.
The rooms were large and well appointed. They were clean and quiet. A bit dark decor and lighting in the lobby area.
Staff and room.
Great location and valet parking
The staff was amazing. Polite and personable, always willing to help and proactive in resolving any booking issues. Would definitely stay again. Also, there is an amazing shop right on the next corner that has an incredible selection of foods, from ice cream and pizza to a full salad bar, that stays open for your late night cravings. Conveniently close to the hotel. If I must search for something negative to say..... Maybe the room seemed a little cramped? Didn't affect us because we were out and about but had we stayed in I suppose we'd have to use the descriptor "cozy."
The location is great. The bathrooms are nice. Internet worked well. However it lacks the charm I was expecting from a boutique hotel in New York. The rooms have an old feeling. The decoration in general is fairly old style. And when we tried to get room service for breakfast nobody picked up, we were told we will be called back and after 30 min we just gave up. Not worth the price, I would rather do a Hilton or Hyatt for same price with much better bed, service and vibe.
I love this hotel. I love the staff and I love the rooms. This feels like a hotel in a small town. I always reserve here even if the price is more expensive. Keep up the good work chandler. Better gym room.
Staff was amazingly attentive. No ice on floor
Old shower and bathroom
Friendly, helpful staff. Bad view out of room 733.
Very convenient location. Excellent service. Clean and cozy room.
Convenient and close proximity to our corporate office.
friendly staff simple old NYC charm, architecture large, well appointed rooms for an older hotel easy access to meetings
minibar was loaded with choices deceptive staff. gave me a different room with a smaller bed than the one I paid for. but after waiting on lobby for an hour after my check in time because the manager hadn't inspected the room, I was too tired and Aggravated to argue!
Excellent facilities, clean rooms, great location, right in the heart of Manhattan.
I'm not one to write travel reviews but I had such an incredible experience here I felt the need to share! Came here for a staycation (roommates, amirite?) slash birthday celebration and our choice could't have been more perfect. In a word, this spot is snazzy. The decor, fixtures and furnishings are reminiscent of the Prohibition/speakeasy era with a modern, chic twist. Just by standing in the lobby you instantly feel a little more immersed in something cool and vibrant. There is a palpable sense of imminent adventure and intrigue here, definitely a boon to kick off your New York City escapade. Inspiration is abundant here! The rooms are immaculately clean, chic and quiet. Bed is ridiculously comfortable and also features hidden storage drawers, so be sure to check under the huge fluffy down comforters they're topped with! There truly aren't enough adjectives to describe just how accommodating and incredible the staff here is. So friendly! Everyone here is a paragon of guest services for competing establishments to emulate. If you're looking for a stylish, urbane backdrop with ubercool yet welcoming vibe to your Gotham City foray, book with confidence at Archer, it is truly a stay to remember! Check out is at 11, not 12. Only downside to this hotel, otherwise it is magnificent.
Staff was courteous and friendly. Room and bath were clean. Goodies were on the nightstand every evening when the bed was turned down. We walked and took the subway to where we wanted to go. All directions were precise. Subway was 2 blocks We would stay here again.
The staff was very friendly and professional. The even remembered us the next day. Evan was wonderful, positive and up beat. Everyone was very helpful, even moved us when our AC was malfunctioning. Rooms were kind of small but then we were in the a limited amount of space as far as the city was concerned.
The staff at the front desk was very friendly.
Beautiful property, well thought out rooms, great amenities and attention to detail. They need to iron out a lot of issues - the hotel is super new so they likely will. Room service is expensive, not very good & delivered in cheap take out containers. Very slow internet - borderline unusable if you're a business traveler. Staff nice and polite but very impersonal,
Decor was great, rooms were clean and mini bar was stocked with great snacks at reasonable prices ($2 per soda). Rooms were small but this isn't unheard of for Manhattan.
Clean, elegant rooms, comfortable bed, great shower. Hallway noise came through the door easily.
Although an old hotel, everything was very clean. Poor window isolations, you have to keep the air conditioning on all the time to avoid street noizes. As everything about NYC accomodations, the prices are ridiculously high.
location the sink in the bathroom was too small.
Staff very prompt, room was not as booked but problem was dealt with very quickly. Even though we were on the 16 floor it was still very noisy
Friendly clean and fantastic location
the closeness to Grand central and the faclities of central New York could not be better bathrooms could do with an upgrade but a relatively minor problem
Location beside central station, suite was big and had fridge and coffee maker which is essistial when u have been out shopping all day Could have drinks machine in lobby (bottle water etc)
Excellent Location for city break. View from room window.
Very close to Grand Central Station and the Metro and also a good location for walking to many of the major attractions.
Simplicity Small room, but it's ok
plenty of room the road works but that's New York
Large suite but basic and near Grand Central and perfectly adequate for a city trip. Hotel needs a makeover. No double glazing so rooms at front has lots of traffic noise. No blankets in room or spare pillows. Old and tired! We asked concierge about travel detais on the subway and he simply shrugged his shoulders and left us to find out ourselves.
Location Bad functioning TV, old TV models. Poor internet wi-fi.
The rooms were mostly clean and modern. The towels are new and fluffy. Rooms not facing the street are quiet. (Not sure on rooms facing the street.) The price was reasonable and the location is great. I'm likely to return again if I need a room in the city. The lack of a lobby doesn't bother me. The front desk staff members are very amiable to help. The rooms aren't big, but there's enough room for your stuff. it gets the job done. The breakfast hours are limited for leisure travels who aren't sightseeing, which are 7am - 9am. There should be a 3 hour breakfast window, similar to other hotels that provide breakfast. Water temperature never gets hot, so you get a warm shower. The rain shower head option is nice. The temperature of the room was a bit tricky to manage because there's the hotel's internal heat and in-room heat you can manage. Since the hotel's heat was hot, we had to leave the window open a bit. (Didn't want to be annoyed from the sound of in-room heat/fan.) Oh cleanliness. Housekeeping really needs to do a better job of wiping down the bathroom and other areas of the room. I found 5 - 10 spots brown and yellow spots in the bathroom that could have simply been wiped down better.
The guys at the breakfast place were awesome Really dry air from heater
I reserved a deck room months before then got there and they said they overbooked! Scam!
Room was comfortable and clean and quiet. Large television blasting in very small lobby, distracting the single clerk at registration desk from his/her duties. Cheesy expensive snacks and beverages in rooms. Put a snack machine in the lobby. .
Great Staff, very good location for us. Were always cheerful from the front desk to front door and especially the service people. Would recommend outright with the exception of noise. Had very noisy neighbors next to us. Sound traveled easily through the walls. Traffic noise was also pretty apparent.
The staff was excellent. Small bathrooms. Phone system not working properly.
Enjoyed comfortable beds, coffe shop and evening wine that was complimentary. Stayed there with wife and two teenage children - bathroom was too small!
The staff was so nice and went above and beyond to be as helpful as they could. Mario was a wonderful door man that was able to compensate the trouble we had with our door. Chris and Danny helped my mom and I get metro cards so we could use the subway to travel around the city. Danny physically walked us to the train station to show us where to buy the metro cards. We had issues with the door to our room the entire stay, the key card wouldn't work after ten minutes of being programmed.
Location Good deals always have windows against next building with no view
Rooms were large (for New York) and comfortable. Bathroom was large. Staff was friendly. Very close to Grand Central Terminal. Quiet at night. Food prices at Silverleaf were not posted and VERY high!
The location is great for anyone coming from Long Island. I really like knowing that Kimpton always welcomes pets. Fire alarm battery needed to be replaced. I ended up taking it out to make the beeping stop. I told the front desk, but they didn't seem bothered. The thermostat was held to the wall with tape. It came loose and the batteries did as well. I don't know if I received awards points or not, but I'm not sure I care. Kimpton wouldn't honor the lower price I found on hotels.com; so, I didn't book the room through them.
The location was great. Walking distance to Grand Central Station. The bathroom was clean and the bed was really comfortable. The staff were friendly and the concierge was somewhat helpful. The first thing I noticed is that the staff were not dressed very neatly. As I struggled with my bags and getting into the lobby the doorman didn't help at all. Then when I got up to my floor I smelled a strange odor, almost like a skunk, and then in my room it smelled like mildew the entire time I was there. I had to spray my cologne all over the room so I wouldn't smell it when I was trying to fall asleep. The blanket on the bed looked dirty like it was covered in dog hair so I didn't even touch that and also everything felt sticky in the room. I also didn't receive a courtesy call to assure everything was ok with the room.
Easy to get to fom Laguardia. Room nice, clean , quiet, temperature control worked well, staff efficient and nice. Twenty min walk to Harold Squire, MSG, Penn Station, 5 min to Grand Central. Good value hotel.
Staff was awesome and very accomodative Free Raid-The-Mini-Bar Card Rooms were tiny (even by NY standards) Hotel felt a bit claustrophobic in general
The location and friendly staff
The rooms were spacious for NYC and very comfortable. There was some room service but also a restaurant next door. We only had breakfast there but it was great and there were other options nearby. The rooms come with a small kitchen so you can save your money for other things. The air conditioner was next to the bed and it was a little difficult to get the right temperature.
The staff and the view
Beds are comfortable, great having 2 rooms to spread out in. Full kitchen great,even if just for cereal and milk. Needs updating, furniture, lamps, etc. getting very worn, tattered and very outdated. Concierge not much help.
The friendly hotel staff, the placement of the hotel, the pretty spacious double suite room that I booked with the facility of the kitcinette. No
Room size and cleanliness
Staff was incredibly helpful and accommodating! Worked hard to ensure we had an amazing stay- for example, they let us check in ultra early because we were exhausted from our flight. The room itself was incredible- clean, big and had a kitchen with stove, dishwater, microwave, refrigerator, utensils, etc. Can't stress enough how lovely the huge windows with the NYC skyline views were! Did not want to leave the room!! Doesn't look nice from the outside - it's hard to notice, the logo doesn't look good and the building itself is super dark/slender (windows are boarded up on one side - looks like a vacant space for a business). Perhaps this is an NYC thing, but the room was freezing and heater would only work if the outside temperature had been below 52 for a while! They gave us a space heater which was very nice of them (and speaks to how accommodating they were!) but hardly made a dent in the room temperature unfortunately.
Friendly helpful staff. Large rooms. Some furnishings starting to feel tired.
The best hotel in New York in my opinion! The staff is incredibly friendly. Every thing is top notch!
the bed and pillow were so comfortable! The couch in our room, and lobby could use a reod
Great location close to uptown and downtown with minimal noise
The location is not bad--on 37th st between 5th and 6th. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The wifi was good. They had free coffee in the morning. I can not recommend this hotel. There are so many issues. The room was unbelievably tiny with no space for a table, i.e. no place to make or drinnk coffee. The only way to use a computer is to put it on your lap and sit on the bed. There is construction going on everywhere, with noise and dust, and one of the two elevators is out of use for hotel guests. I had a room in the back. It was quiet but had a depressing view of rundown buildings and garbage.
The staff were wonderful. Our room was quite nice and more spacious than we expected. Apparently the room had just completed renovation and was approved for occupancy the day before we checked in. The rooftop bar is very attractive, with a fabulous view of the Empire State Building. The renovations that are in progress are a real nuisance. The restaurant and the fitness center are closed for renovations. During the day, and sometimes in the evening, only one of the two elevators is available for guest use. That was very frustrating. More than once we took the stairs, both from and to our 8th floor room, because of the miserable wait for the elevator to arrive.
The restaurant was nice. The location is good. The room had a nice view over the Empire States but it had too much noise from the street. The complimentary kits of the bathroom was too poor.
So pleased with this hotel. Great, helpful staff. Great location. Awesome rooftop bar. Bistro bar was comfortable a d food was great. Absolutely no complaints.
The proffesional service, the location, the nice bed and the breakfast that was included.
Given the price of hotels in NYC, this is an extremely excellent hotel for the price. Most hotels I have stayed in while in NYC for this price or a little less were nothing more than a room with just enough room for the bed. Not the case here. The room was very large compared to other rooms and very well kept. I will be coming back.
Brilliant location. Value given breakfast was included into price. Very friendly and efficient service. Clean and modern rooms. iPod charger in the room. The air conditioning was a little bit noisy. The rooms were a bit warm at night.
The strand is in a really great location if you're a first timer to NYC and want to be able to get to a lot of things quickly. Times Square, Empire State, Rockefeller Center, Bryant Park and the library are all super close, and the subway is right there to get you the rest of the way. Chelsea and the Highline also in walking distance. The room is fine, had everything we needed, was clean, and had a cool-looking shower, though we didn't end up with a view of the empire state building. Whenever the people in the room next door arrived or left, we could hear them like they were inside our room or opening our door. thin walls, I guess. Not a huge deal, just a little startling.
Great location for all city shopping and attractions, staff friendly and helpful. Nice clean room and comfy bed.
Roof Top Bar, location Expensive, small room, mattress made loud noises getting in and out of bed. No room service, no food except after 6PM.
the friendly and helpful staff and a very central location we liked it all
You can ear a lot of noise fron the streat
