Expert Review

The chintzy former Pickwick Arms has been painted over and transformed into a choice stay for the thrifty hipster. Starting at just $99/night, and with about half of the 347 rooms offering private bathrooms, this efficiently minimalist stay is closer to an adult hostel than a hotel. The thin walls, flimsy mattresses, and airplane-bathroom-size sinks aren’t the high notes of The Pod (opened 2007), but with iPod docks, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi, not to mention the prime Midtown location, it’s hard to complain. Choose from rooms with queens, doubles, singles, and bunk beds.
