    The Pod Hotel, Manhattan

    Just got back from a quick weekend trip to New York City, what a fun town.  I stayed at the adorable Pod Hotel which is super convenient.  It's right on 51st Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues in Midtown Manhattan.  The rooms are the size of a dorm, but it's clean, very reasonable and right in the middle of things.  Check out Buttercup Bakery on 2nd Avenue nearby too!
