Tiny but comfortable and clean. Great shower! Like warehousing for humans, but right in the heart of Times Square

I enjoyed my stay at POD....my room had a very nice view of NYC and it was clean. My only dissatisfaction is the hotel clerk gave me a key to the wrong room. Hence, I had to wait for security to come to the 22nd floor to rectify the situation. I was tired and hungry, but he was very apologetic.
