    Loved it!

    This place was a cute microtel with clean, quaint rooms that was just enough for a one night stay. The bed was sooo comfy, I didn't want to get out of bed. The best part was the mezcal bar on the rooftop, El Techo. Food was very good but the mezcal is FUN! It's a pretty sweet view of the city and I like the open layout. I'd definitely stay here again, and hang out at El Techo for sure.

    Just okay

    Really small room. Very loud in the hallway, from thin walls but also the cleanibg staff was shouting to each other down the hall. Very over priced cafe in lobby.

    Love Pod.

    I've stayed in the Brooklyn Pod's before so I already knew how great their company is. PodPhilly was easy to find, easy and convenient parking. The room was great and just the right amount of space for the two of us. Bed was super comfy! The walls were a little thin so you could hear everything but I'm a heavy sleeper so it was no issue until morning hours. I do wish there was a mini fridge in the rooms but it wasn't a deal breaker.
