Pod 51  

Midtown East, Manhattan, New York City

Part hotel, part hostel (with shared bathrooms), the Pod is pretty basic for business-focused Midtown East. But it’s still not the cheapest hotel. Rooms — those with their own bathroom — also have free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and iHome iPod docks. But they’re tiny — maybe the smallest in New York. For the price, opt for the Holiday Inn Sixth Avenue in far-hipper Chelsea.
