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.
Everything was perfect
The staff was very helpful and very friendly!
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.
Beautiful space with clean rooms and very good service. We only stayed one night but we look forward to returning.
The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.
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.
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..
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.
Very comfortable, cozy bed, with quality mattress and bedding. Great location. Speedy, polite left-luggage service. Way too intimate a space for two people unless you're really, really close. And even then you better not be claustrophobic or have a lot of stuff. You could practically touch all four walls standing in the middle of the room. The bathroom has a not-sealed or soundproof, sliding frosted glass door, like a shower, with no privacy whatsoever. Snotty eye-rolling wenches with attitude at the front desk on check-in, but extremely nice gentleman at check-out almost made up for it.
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.
Clean, good location Not enough elevators, pretty loud at night
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.
Clean, compact and great for an overnight business trip You have to request an iron and ironing board ... other than that, it's fine.
Location Everything other than location
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.
well designed, efficient and a good price.
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!
Terrible next door guests kept trying to get into my room.
The staff were as professional and as helpful as any I've ever experienced. The meeting amenities and food were very high quality. My room was difficult to get to a comfortable temperature. The thermostat did not appear to have any bearing on the room which left me shivering through the night. Also, the fixtures in the bathroom were loose and the sink would not hold water.
Very attentive, but not overdone and a great room very comfortable. Refreshing old world charm - it takes you back to a slower pace enjoying a drink at the Bull and Bear.
THe room was amazing - largest I've ever seen in NYC. And sumptious. We were at the Waldorf during the Blizzard. Ordered room service for dinner (no restaurants were open) at 6:15pm, and they told us 1.5 hour wait. Fine, they were really busy. So, it wasn't until 8:45 that I called down to ask where was our order. It took them 15 minutes to discover that they had no record of our order, but they would expedite. So, we got our food by 9:20. One would have thought they would have comped us SOMETHING. Dessert, even. But, they didn't comp a thing. A REAL classy hotel would have offered something. Points off for that.
The lobby ambiance The elevators that trapped us unless we called for help from staff. The hotel room we got had a terriie mold odor. The floors were wet especially by the front door. My husband was walking his mom to the front door and his socks were black and smelled from the carpet. So he then knew he must jump in the shower, the water pressure was so terrible and worst of all only cold water. All we wanted was a warm shower and a bed to retire for the night and we couldn't even do that. We called down to the manager and complained and they refunded our room we then left the hotel asap after we called.
I liked the kindness of the staff and all the resources available to make the stay comfortable The room service food could be a little better and I'd like bubble bath to be offered at the spa. Everything else was fabulous.
Staff and Bull and Bear. Grew up on the WA. It's looks very tired now though. Ironing board was broken, Almost burnt my foot off. Had to check out early, check out staff had no remorse or offering to lessen my bill. Good stay but they don't go the extra mile, which they need right now, considering the competitive landscape of midtown hotels and their current status as kind of a shitty/ outdated hotel. Sorry WA, I love you but either drop your price or update.
Staff was excellent Room was spacious and very quiet Room was clean Bed was very comfortable I would definitely stay again The bathroom was dated and needs to be refurbished The windows also need to be refurbished, it had the old school shade that you pull down that is spring loaded. It also looked for worn. The walls also needed a fresh coat of paint, once again there areas that just looked a little worn.
Staff very nice. Room was clean and quite. Great location I would stay there again
Grand lobby Pleasant hotel aroma Clean Friendly customer service Couldn't control room temperature Rooms a little outdated
Great location, room was clean Old and they don't maintain the building anymore as they will close in 2018. Service not really at Hilton level, the good old days are probably over. I think the hotel offers the value of a EUR 50.- 3* hotel in France or Italy, that's it! The breakfast buffet is ridiculously expensive and average only. Service is not really 5* level. I wouldn't book the hotel again.
Attentive and tailored customer care.
thanks for the great service.
The views from our tower room were amazing. Staff were helpful and courteous. I would especially like to thank Ces for his personalised service, even though the shuttle did not not pick us up. We were given the wrong information regarding where to board our shuttle service and consequently, missed our transfer to the airport. The shuttle service was rung by reception at the hotel, but the company told us we had been given the wrong information as to where to meet the shuttle and they were not willing to provide us with another service to the airport. We then had the added expense of a taxi fare to JFK, to meet our flight. I did not appreciate this. Also, given the cost of accommodation, I would like to have seen internet access built into the price, not as an additional cost to the customer.
It is successfully located - in the center of Manhattan, near to city centre and sights Stopped in 5* parts of hotel. All strongly become outdated, noise both from street, and from the lift and hotel, the sanitary technician and other demands serious reconstruction. Full not conformity to the price offer. A level 3* plus.
Lovely location, very good service. The room was very nice but the bathroom was quite poor in comparison. Enjoyed Sunday brunch. Had a problem with checking in....had the reservation under the wrong name. Didn't like breakfast in Oscars...the food was poor and the coffee was cold
We think this is the best boutique hotel in New York. Impeccable service, historic surroundings, magnificent public rooms. Great room service food. A bit pricey, but so is everything in NYC.
The Chatwal fires on all cylinders. Every need is attended to. Expensive, but worthwhile. The bathroom was amazing, but using the shower at full pressure actually caused a bit of a flood. The climate and lighting control is handled by a single touch-screen unit, but its operation is a little complicated. Light-switches shouldn't be confusing.
The decor and availability of room service as well as the location The hotel is very small and cramped. The floor we stayed on had a horrible fried food odor that was overwhelming every day of our stay. I did not feel that the overall quality was representative of a 5-star hotel.
Close to Times Square Hotel room was quite and comfortable Good competitive pricing When you check bags into the bell hop they keep them outside in the lobby. Nothing disappeared but it made me a little uneasy.
Location Hotel is not 5 star
Walking distance to subway, Times Square, 5th Avenue, and various popular eateries We asked for a fridge but never got one. ; ( however, it's ok bc we weren't in the room much anyways
Great location for the whole city. Getting to and from was very easy and made our stay in the city that much better. The hotel is very decorative on the exterior and lobby but the rooms leave a lot to be desired. Very plain room but if your there to see the city it is just fine.
The rooms were great, and the staff was amazing! Excellent location... Thank you! Nothing!
I loved how they all treated me and my almost 2 yrs old daughter. They loved her Gia! Everybody paid attention to her, played w her, made us feel like at home! We ll be returning again for sure! There was nothing not to like! Hotel is excellent and I suggest to everybody!
Location is great and NYC atmosphere is why you head to this area. Hotel is going through renovations and rooms were not clean. Bathroom had mold and tub was missing shower parts. Not what we expected.
The location was perfect for going to time square and all the local tourist attractions within walking distance to everywhere..check in was very easy and they were very professional. There is nothing that I didn't like
Everything was very good. At the "check in" counter, the man in charge was very helpful, enabling me to get a room without having to wait. I appreciated his efforts very much.
Clean rooms and very friendly staff!! N/A
The room size was good for NYC. The staff was friendly. The location is good if one wants to be close to the theater district. We couldn't turn the heat off. We tried turning the temperature as low as it could go and it was still blowing warm air.
- Excellent Location - Around the corner from the times square / Walgreens tower, H&M etc. etc. - Clean sheets and towels. - Really good Bloody Mary's. - Most of the staff were polite and friendly. I'm not the type to give bad reviews.. BUT - I found boxer briefs from previous guests in the drawer of the night table, on top of the bible. Disgusting. It really made me question the importance of sanitation and thoroughness of the cleaning crew. - Not a good sleep. The beds were hard and the pillows were thin and flat. - The fridge and mini bar were missing from my room. - There were unknown charges to my account. And I tried to contact the hotel to question these charges, I was redirected many times. And I was always sent to a voice mail. Eventually, they told me they would investigate and that they would call me back. They didn't. When I called back the account billing personnel (Deborah, I think) was extremely rude and sarcastic, she redirected my call before I was even done speaking.
Nice ambiance. Good elevators to get to room efficiently Poor housekeeping. Bathroom smelled musty. They forgot to leave washcloths one time. Then forgot to leave shampoo another time. When we called for shampoo to shower took 1.5 hours to come. Also asked for blankets when checked in which never came.
Location, ambiance, service, view, gym, and food. Mail room services and the Bellman Station appeared to be during us a favor when we asked to have our bags stored after check-out. The rest of the staff in my experience were helpful and pleasant, especially Housekeeping and Room service!!
Staff was great, service excellent, rooms were huge in the Tower No coffe in room, very pricey to have sent to your room
Location, good neibourhood , good loung and snack shop . Also rooms were good side and clean with proper functioning bathroom. I wish they had a sit down restaurant of their own. Although they are close to restaurants on the street.
location room wasnt clean properly by housekeeping
Convenient location to everything we were doing and the Molton Brown products are terrific! It's a luxurious hotel and a lovely interlude from the chaos of Manhattan. We asked for some champagne flutes and the ones we received were delivered dirty. We called and asked for replacements and it took well over an hour to receive them - at that point we had washed the flutes ourselves in the bathroom sink.
Large rooms, excellent location
area elegance cost of room service! lack of dining areas for served breakfast/lunch
Our room directly overlooked St. Patrick's Cathedral and it was gorgeous. The room was spacious (unusual for NY), clean and comfortable. There's a wonderful café right off the beautiful hotel lobby for specialty coffees and French pastries, and the fitness center is amazing. Plenty of bar/restaurants within walking distance, as are many of the tourist attractions such as Rock Center. I would highly recommend this hotel, and will look into staying there again. There was nothing that I disliked about this hotel, although I would have preferred a lower internet rate (it is $16/day).
Staff was very cordial and gave excellent customer service. Charge for Wi-Fi was unexpected for a $700 a night room.
We architecture of the overall hotel was very elegant. And the rooms were nicely appointed with unique furniture. Charging for Internet access
Overall staff was friendly.....BUT Our beds were very firm, and our maid did a lousy job cleaning our room. She left a dirty wash cloth on our bathroom floor for two days! We did not receive our requested newspaper at our door, and the staff would not give us a paper because there were no extras. The Internet charges were ridiculous!
Had a wonderful stay. The staff was very attentive and always seeking ways to make our stay better. The location to shows was the best with a theater right next door and the 54th floor bar was a perfect after theater hang out for drinks and snacks. It was also steps away from the subway to go in any direction. We did not have to step foot in a "smelly" new york taxi all weekend not to say the subway was a bouquet.....just kidding on the smell.
Very clean rooms, updated rooms, great service, great location.
The location was great. So close to Time Square and in the middle of 2 great Irish Pubs. Only that we could not stay longer.
Very Clean, Very Modern. Loved it!
Location Overall atmosphere less than satisfactory
Location was great A bit noisy Some of the staff( not all) had attitude. I noticed they were attentive to some people better than others.
The view of the city and comfortable bed
Location, rooms, restaurant, and 54th Floor Lounge were very nice Everything... we will be back.
Nothing No pool they need to scrub the internet & take down every mention of having a pool. FALSE ADVERTISING & they were not apologetic at all. You google this place it lists it having a pool big mess for kids
the bed is very comfortable if we hadn't set alarms would have slept the whole day. the amenities in the room alone are a nice add. the staff was efficient and helpful. there were gnats in the shower and when we checked out and had to leave the bags at the desk the bellman took about 20 minutes to show up and help us.
The One UN New York was very comfortable and well maintained. I particularly liked its proximity to the UN Headquarters, where I was attending a meeting. An added plus was the great views from my room to the south and west, so I could see the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building.
View of the east river. Small, odly shaped rooms. Door opens into a narrow passage so you have to do a dance to get into the room. Windows are small, so feel cramped inside.
Location -- close to UN where our meeting was held; Small, crowded lobby; no bell boy service for luggage; only one courtesy phone in the lobby;
I liked the view of the New York skyline from my room. The hotel was very clean and nice.
Staff was very friendly -- they checked me in early and gave helpful directions. View from my room was great. Wish the location was a bit closer to Times Square, but it's not too far...
Clean, very friendly staff and comfortable accommodations. Wall were thin, we could hear entire conversations going on at all times.
Limited toiletries and poor cleanest. Will not stay there again.
The small bar in the lobby. Friendly staff Good general location Too expensive for outdated rooms especially bathroom. Internet connectivity could be better and included in the price.
Nice view, spacious room, relaxing hotel to stay at for a night. There's a pool! The room was so cold even when we turned down the air. Also the location is a little removed from the rest of the city. If you need any emergency supplies, you have to go back out to find them because the gift shop in the hotel was closed when we arrived around 5:00 pm.
Great staff loved the security dog in lubby To get in shower was quote slippery and shower head in a weird place
I went with my girlfriend and her 17yr old sister. Everything was perfect. The front desk personnel were more then accommodating and the room was beautiful. the hotel itself was great. I couldn't have asked for anything more!!
Extremely small rooms. Loud air conditioner. Needs work
The bed was very comfortable. Yes I was just surprised by the sheer number of things wrong. As we walked in we both thought. This is beautiful. As we checked in I was told I booked a king bed and I stated I booked a double. I showed the woman ( name omitted) my reservation and she said that a double room just means two people. Fine fine my mistake, I moved on. When we got to the room the heater was making a noise that sounded like an animal was in it. The shower frame was not attached to the wall, the shower door had no way to pull it closed from the inside, the shelf in the bathroom was slanted downward, as was the top of the toilet tank so nothing staying on it. I am a normal sized woman and I was I a difficult time getting dressed in the bathroom due to size. Check out is st noon as in many hotels, at 9 there was a knock on the door. When I answered it the cleaning staff was there and asked when I was checking out. I told them 12. At 1049 there was a knock again, the same staff member asked when I was leaving. Now you may say did you say anything... I tried. I tried calling twice ( was only there one night) no answer and wentdownstairs countless times, but as I was on a quick fun trip I didn't want to waste time. I was just surprising disappointed my my stay and it was compounded when I checked out and then checked into my next hotel, that for only 30 $ more, I not only had the amenities of a " normal room, I was actually given a premier room with a view, corner ceiling to floor windows, A kitchenette, complimentary unlimited filtered water, complimentary breakfast and a staff that was above and beyond. All of this just a few minutes from the roisevelt.
Front desk staff.
Gorgeous lobby and exterior. Fantastic location. Tiny room, lower grade bath & shower items...didn't feel like I'd get great customer service from the room experience.
Good location, nice lobby, Good complimentary toiletries Bathroom small, outdated, with no space to lay personal stuff. Floor seemed to be dirty. Carpet very dusty on the edges, corners and behind the bed. It looks like the housekeeper doesn't have a canister vacuum to reach those places. Bad smell coming from moldy air conditioner. Front desk didn't respond our calls, we ask for a coffee maker to the bell man but they never brought it. We called the bell man for somebody to bring us the kart but they never came. Overall staff is friendly but not efficient.
I liked the location and for the most part the room was clean and the bed was nice. I didn't like how most of the hotel was not updated and the valet service took a while.
Everything was pleasant except the amount of external noise you can hear in your room, both from inside the hotel halls and the street noise. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Excessive noise from external sources
Nothing Up all night with bad radiator. Phones did not work or they did not pick up. Rooms are old and dated. Elevator takes forever. $52 for a basic continental breakfast. Go to a diner
Checked in after a long flight from Australia at 11pm. Room was not made up and bathroom was disgusting. Went to receptionist who allocated us another room - same result. Demanded a refund, and went and checked in at the Westin. Very disappointed.
It's located near major attractions and it's the room assigned to my family and myself is a good size room. That it did not include continental breakfast
In general the staff was nice and accommodating. In particular the concierge named Aisha (spelling?) was extremely kind and helpful. The room was clean, and got the job done. I would stay here again as it was a great value and location. My 'Cosy Queen' was pretty small. If I had another person sharing the room, it would have definitely been too small. But for myself it was fine, but not for the clastrophobic!
Great location, excellent staff combined with a good restaurant and good decor Wifi Should be free
Room was very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Sometimes I had difficulty understanding the staff as their first language was french.
This was our first trip to nyc and chose Sofitel by recommendation as well as location and reputation. It was within walking distance to many attractions as well as excellent places to eat. We felt safe yet away from the main hustle and bustle. The beds were super comfortable and the bathroom was top class. Thankyou!
Extremely friendly staff upgraded us to a king bed, left champagne in our room for our husband's birthday
The location was perfect for theatre and shopping and catching the subway. The room was a little small. We had two twin beds and really not much of a view. Concierge (one of 3) was not particularly helpful. Very minimal Christmas decorations in lobby, other hotels much more festive.
Location and cleaniness the other guests where a bit rude
The room was large for new york and very nice. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding!! It includes juice, coffee and a basket of bread and pastries. The best pancakes are at Sofitel. It is a short walk to the theatre. No complaints, I will definitely go back to Sofitel
The room was overall inviting and the bed and pillows especially comfortable. Having to pay an extra fee for internet access, it should be a part of the cost of the room.
The staff excellent, location perfect comfort first class. Tea & coffee making facilities should be available in the room.
Bed was unbelievably comfortable. Bathroom was not as well outfitted as the bed.
They didn't honor the booking for three so we walked out.
Service was great, room was nice, free upgrade! Shower wasn't too good. Room smelled a little like someone had smoked there earlier.
Location is good, staff very helpfull. Small size of bedrom and view hotel in construcion.
The staff was extremely helpful and very friendly. Perfect location and very clean and nice rooms...
The front desk staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Especially Tiffany and Katrina. They accommodated an early check in and and a late check out (we didn't want to leave!) The beds were the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The room was spacious and the bathroom nicer than mine at home! Perfect mid-town location. But the friendly service is the main reason to stay and come back again and again!
The staff is extremely friendly, helpful. They always have a smile – a real, genuine one - on their face. Especially Eric who is concierge of the cassa goes out of his way to make sure you have anything you may need. The beds are extremely comfortable and rooms are nice and quiet – surprising for midtown Manhattan.No need to search anather otel in Times square.
Good Location room too small
Friendly, clean, modern, excellent location.
staff is very kind it is for sure no 5 star hotel. Spa area is nice but 5 chairs at the pool are by far too less for such hotel. Dinner and breakfast was also not 5 star.
Excellent location. Clean rooms. Comfortable beds. Room was not ready for check in at 3 pm.
It was a good experience. The location of the hotel is the best. You are in the middle of everything. The staff was nice and friendly The breakfast options are really very limited but it was ok. The wardrobe space need to get bigger. It can hardly fit for one nevertheless two especially in winter.
Everything about the stay was perfect! Nothing to complain about it all. You are a 5 minute walk to the center of Times Square and a the rooms are spacious for a NYC hotel. Additionally, the rooms for very clean and updated. I'll definitely return to this hotel the next time I am back in NYC. Nothing!
The room was clean and the hotel was in a prime location-close to Times Square and 5th Ave shopping Room temperature
