Very modern and clean. Room was small, as expected, but adequate. Easy checkin and checkout. Location was perfect for a Caps game.

Great staff and close attractions

Pros: Very conveniently located to many dining and entertainment options. Across the street from the METRO
Cons: The hotel describes itself as stripped to the basics and that is exactly what it is. Great clean, albeit somewhat small, accommodations.
Location: It was a very short walk down H Street to The White House. Located right in Chinatown.
I have the most enjoyable stay at The POD DC. The hotel touted itself as the best in basic un-embellished accommodations and that it was. The rooms we clean, efficient, adequate with modern decor and sufficient amenities. They were small by North American standard but having traveled extensively throughout Europe, I found the room more than sufficient. The staff was outstanding, very knowledge and helpful. The restaurant served great 'southern' influenced fare and I especially enjoyed the HAPPY HOUR. On the last night, I discovered the roof top bar - what a find! Overall, I had a great experience and would stay at another POD.

Great value and location with excellent staff

Pros: Location, price, and appearance.
Cons: We were missed one day by housekeeping and that gave us a lot of trash to pile up. We were skipped with replacement towels on one additional day.
Location: Brief walk to subway, museums, and fun restaurants.
The Pod was easy to find near the subway station. The staff was consistently helpful, answering questions or resolving small problems. Staff made this an outstanding experience. I will be pleased to return when the balance of amminities are complete. We liked the small room and were impressed with the appearance of especially the bathroom and window shade. The window shade is great in appearance and function! Luggage was easily stored under the bed. We appreciate the convenient and easy to operate safe.

The location of this hotel is awesome - there is a Metro station right across the street and it is pretty close the the National Mall. The rooms are small, but you don't go to DC to hang out in the room. The rooms are very clean and neat. I would recommend the hotel.

Excellent, affordable hotel next to Metro Station

Pros: Affordability, clean, excellent service.
Location: Inside the gates of Chinatown, walking distance to the Convention Center, across the street from the Metro.
I love the concept of the pod- a small, but adequate space. Affordable, with minimal frills, but new, clean, excellent service, and friendly staff!

Close to restaraunts and museums

Overall the trip to D.C. And the POD was a good experience. The Metro was across the street and most museums were close enough to walk to. The motel heating source was confusing and was either too hot or the air conditioner was on causing the room to be too cold. The hotel staff helped us to better understand how to set there system up so we was comfortable. There was loud banging noises at 4:45 am which was annoying. Perhaps a garbage truck collecting trash? We was on the ninth floor and had a fairly good view of Washington Monument. The Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly.
