The Pod Hotel

A hop skip away from the U.N. is this super convenient and inexpensive hotel. Located between 2nd and 3rd Avenues and regularly sold out, the draw here for anyone who thinks they are 18-25 (whether they are or not) is the affordability of their three room types. For about $89, there are some 90 or so Bunkbed rooms which are perfect for young people on a budget (or maybe if you spent all your money on your PJ's fuel) or for parents who want a little privacy from the teens. The only catch are the out- of- room bathrooms. Bunkbed rooms have a sink but the toilet and shower are (about 1 for every two rooms) located down the hall. A convenient little light in the room shows which public bath is occupied and each one locks of course offering complete privacy once inside. For a bit more, at about $139 a night, there are 100 or so Double rooms - with complete bathrooms inside. With justenough space, this style room features rain head showers, in room safes, and drawers under the bed. Attached to the hotel is the fun Le Bateau Ivre which can house your carousing till the outdoor deck and roof open each May. If you find yourself traveling alone, the hotel has a nightly standing reservation at Carmines for eight which guests can join in advance on the hotel's in-house blog. Promoting other nifty ways of meeting other hotel guests, they also host various events such as tequila tastings and a sheet, updated weekly, is available to guests only highlighting various free local events. All rooms have iPod docking stations and LG TVs for those rare times when you plan to stay in...
