Pod 39 Hotel is located in the Murray Hill neighborhood of Midtown Manhattan. We are close to all of the NYC action but tucked away from the hustle and bustle on a quiet street. We’re just steps from Grand Central Terminal and five subway lines that will transport you all over New York City.

We are also a hop, skip, and a jump from Times Square, Fifth Avenue Shopping area, Bryant Park, The Empire State Building, and the United Nations Headquarters.

 The hunt for a fun yet budget-friendly place to drop your bags in NYC is finally over. Centrally located, socially connected, and uber tech-savvy, Pod 39 Hotel offers up a  friendly travel experience at the epicenter of Murray Hill.


Step past the landmark Northern Italian Renaissance façade to find the first of many surprises: our bright, buzzing lobby that’s all about connectivity – be it to the city, our staff, or your fellow urban nomads.

The Pod Concierge Team stands ready to put you at ease and on the right track to whatever it is you’ve come to see and do. A few steps farther and you’re in the Playroom Lounge, with guests huddled over board games, sipping cocktails by the fireplace, or catching up at work.


Our onsite lounge serves up Mexican fare with a global twist. Head up to the Pod 39 Rooftop to savor cocktails and light bites with a side of skyline views.

Empellón Al Pastor is a casual restaurant and bar located at 145 East 39th Street within Pod 39 hotel. Chef Alex Stupak creates a menu that focuses on mash note bar snacks and tacos in a laid back environment.

Al Pastor’s drink menu focuses on margaritas, beers and shots along with a few tiki inspired cocktails.
