ChitChat: The Pod Hotel to Open in Center City
About a year or so ago a slither of a building was torn down on 19th Street (31 South 19th Street, ) with lots of speculation on what would be going in this spot, which is south of Market Street. Today a friend tipped me off that a cool hotel that I’ve stayed at in NYC would be built there – Pod, not to be confused with the sushi restaurant of the same name. With a little internet sleuthing I discovered a few articles on the new, exciting modern sleek new hotel – the POD Hotel where I’ve stayed in NYC and they are so cool.
They’re great for budget, no frills stays in the City, (Currently in NYC and DC)
with micro, but very functional and fun rooms.
(Can you imagine if you’re not specific with a cab driver “Take me to Pod” and they take you to the incorrect one; it reminds me of when there were two Bookbinders in the City)
