The new Time Square Pod hotel *UPDATE*

by Sasha Love

*UPDATE* I am so into these Pod Hotels in New York. I had to book one for my upcoming travel conference. There are a few other location in New York.  Time Square was just opening when I originally wrote this. Why the update you say? I noticed they will soon be offering extended stay. I am very interested in that. YYYAAAAAA


I was looking for a nice affordable hotel for the Women’s Travel Fest I ran across these “Pod Hotels”. I was immediately impressed. They are small rooms with everything you need for a great price in a great area! No boring hotel, only fabulous design room for a perfect stay. What more can you ask for right? Not to mention they are really nice and cute! These are not like the “Pod Chamber” You might see in across Asia. As many travelers can attest to, sometimes you just need a nice, clean place to sleep and shower that is budget friendly. With hostels you don’t always feel like looking at some else hair in the shower drain. EEKKK.

With the big boom in the travel industry, today’s budget-savvy travelers would LOVE to see more Pods. Nice hotels in good locations stripped  down to efficient, fun, and functional spaces with all the necessary comforts. Taking away extra accommodation that we don’t need or want saves us money.

I would love to see these Pods everywhere! They are perfect for the solo traveler, a few friends and/or family. Someone that needs a nice comfy place to sleep, relax and recharge after business meetings or site seeing. With any luck this will be a growing trend as more people start to get a taste for travel.
