As the very first in the Pod Hotels collection, Pod 51 Hotel ushered in a new generation of budget hotels in New York City and remains one of the most unique and affordable hotels in the City to this day. Pod 51 is located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. On a charming tree-lined block, it's a short walk from three major subway lines. Take a stroll to Fifth Avenue, Central Park, Grand Central Terminal, Rockefeller Center and more. Once you step out of Pod 51's doors, eat, drink and play options are limited only by your imagination.
