Hello Pamela, Thank you for your feedback! We do indeed recommend our full pods for solo travelers, though the legal occupancy is two guests. Please check out our $79 rates in January and February. We do hope you'll give us another try!

Hello Sidney, Thank you for your feedback. Our rooms are small, that's why they're called Pods. Our rates fluctuate throughout the year based on demand, but are always among the lowest in the city. We hope you enjoyed your time in NYC!
