The Pod Hotel Offers Cute Manhattan Rooms Under $100

NYC is a dream destination for many, but with these economically challenging times, traveling to the Big Apple just hasn’t been in the card for most people.

That could change, however, thanks to The Pod, a midtown Manhattan hotel that offers small space accommodation for a small budget.

Regularly, overnight travel to New York City’s most famous island costs a whopping $300 a night—that’s a heck of a lot for a night of glitz on the town, and with the credit crunch crashing down on travel budgets, both corporate and personal, it was only a matter of time before an innovative price alternative was discovered.

The Pod offers single beds for just $89 "and half that if you and a pal take advantage of the bunk beds," Newser informs.

"The Pod is in midtown and offers luxury conveniences—flatscreen TVs and iPod docking stations—in compact rooms. For those looking to go even cheaper, Jane’s in Greenwich Village offers 5-by-7-foot singles for $75, and an atmosphere that testifies to its history as a hotel for sailors."

In the gallery, the first two pictures are of The Pod, the third and fourth are of The Jane (which, by the way, has communal bathrooms). The last images are of the bigger units at The Pod.

So ladies and gents, for those looking for a New York fix this spring (count me in), here’s your chance to enjoy one of the most dazzling cities in the world on a dime!
