Our Winter #PodPicks

Winter #PodWalks

Pod Walk

Central Park

We’re serious about our Pod Walks, and yes, we Pod Walk in the snow! We offer FREE walking tours Monday – Friday. It takes a (very rare) blizzard or a major holiday (think Thanksgiving and Christmas day) to postpone a Pod Walk.

These FREE walking tours, along with our super convenient locations, really make us the ideal hotels for a winter stay in NYC! Each Pod is just steps from the nearest subway station, or a quick walk to the best attractions in the city. Our stellar concierge team and our expert Pod Walk guides are going to help you plan the best winter day ever.

Ice Skating!

There are several notable ice skating rinks in NYC: The Rink at Rockefeller Center is the most iconic, and Wollman Rink in Central Park is the most picturesque.

Our #PodPick is the Rink at the Bryant Park Winter Village. Located at 42nd Street & 6th Avenue, it’s within walking distance from all our Manhattan locations. Staying in Brooklyn? Though there are options nearby, we recommend adding this to your list on the same day as a few major NYC attractions. The Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, and Times Square are all close by. It’s also the only FREE rink in NYC.

❤️ Holidays ❤️

We think you should celebrate Valentine’s Day at Pod Brooklyn this year. Every guests gets a free glass of wine and discount at the wine bar next door! Williamsburg is full of great restaurants, bars, and live music venues, ranging from dive to Michelin starred.

A long weekend, like Presidents’ Day weekend (February 17-19, 2018) is a great time to explore the city. Our rates are great, and we #PodWalk on Presidents’ Day! You’ll be close enough to Trump Tower to stop by, but not so close that you’ll get frisked by the Secret Service.


Don’t be afraid of snow!

When it snows in NYC, even the most jaded New Yorker gets a little excited. The city covered in snow is magical. Build a snowman in Central Park – and Instagram it, your friends will be soooooooo jealous. Yes, NYC gets cold, but it’s not Canada – you don’t need a coat made out of geese. Layer up, buy some cheap gloves and a hat from a street vendor, and explore. Drink some hot cocoa, or a toddy. Pat yourself on the back with all the $$$ you saved.
