I found Pod 39 to be affordable for its great Midtown location, with Grand Central bus and subway connections about three blocks away, Bryant Park about four and Times Square about eight. Our luggage was conveniently stored before check in and after check out, and there was a concierge available each time we walked through the lobby. The room was small and ours was near the elevator so there was regular noise, but not enough to keep us awake after a long day of sightseeing. The glass wall bathroom area doesn't offer any real privacy. My daughter and I got used to it but some may find that more difficult. The staff was pleasant. Those under 21 are not allowed on the roof after 5 p.m. so I could not take my 16-year-old up to see the city lights after dark. This is a great place for adults, as the bar areas attract a lot of people to the lobby in the evenings, but it might not be as good for young families. I would stay again if it were just me or if I was traveling with people over 21.

The most wonderful bed...and the bathroom is delicious, with an enormous deep soaking tub and double vanity sinks. I always stay at The Mark when I need to be located uptown. It feels more like a condo than a hotel, because the staff knows everyone.

We joked that we were not cool enough to stay In This hotel. The hotel and the staff were all great looking. High design everywhere. However, the staff made us feel like home and recognized us as we came and went all weekend. We felt like valued guests And would definitely return!

Concierge(s) were always helpful in answering questions, giving directions (even drawing them out on a map), printing boarding passes, etc. Room service was fast. Hotel restaurant was open late to accommodate theater-goers, and the staff was polite.

From the Astors to the Vanderbilts, America’s moneyed elite settled in and around Glen Cove, the so-called “Gold Coast”, in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The town’s storied past is visible at the Webb Institute’s Stevenson Taylor Hall, once an oil magnate’s mansion, and waterfront Morgan Park. To honor his wife, robber baron J.P. Morgan leased the parkland to the city for $1 for 999 years.
