Sweet Dreams! Tiny Tel in NYC

New York City!!!!! I have been to NYC many times and every time I come it feels like the first time. I decided to explore the latest hotel trend; small rooms in great locations.

I booked my stay at Pod 39. Location! Location! Location! Pod 39 is in Midtown Manhattan, walk a few blocks and you are standing in Time Square. I selected the “Mini Bunk Pod” room, it accommodates two people. This room offered the perfect space to celebrate my friend on his birthday; economical and in the heart of the action. Plus I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get to sleep in a bunk bed!

We arrived early and quickly checked our luggage in before hitting the streets of NYC. Once we returned at the designated time, check-in was very slow. We were given a number and sat in the lobby until we were called. While waiting we retrieved our bags and once we were at the counter everything went quickly. We entered a spacious elevator, got off on the 8th floor, and made our way to the room. We entered our 90 square foot space and claimed our bunks. We each had our own flat screen TVs anchored at the foot of our bunks. Niiiiiice! My bed was surprisingly comfortable, nothing like a wafer-thin bunk from my memories of summer camp. We had a view of the adjoining brick building to set the perfect tone for our adventures into the concrete jungle.

I loved the rainwater shower head in the standup shower, it was so relaxing. My flat-screen was great! Perfect for watching a syndicated game show while browsing the internet. The room also included:

  • Complimentary wireless Internet
  • Hairdryer
  • Air conditioning
  • Work desk and chair
  • Free local calls

Pod 39 was the perfect landing pad for our adventures in New York City.
