The Pod Hotels is continuing its rapid brand expansion with the launch Pod Philly – Philadelphia’s first micro hotel – which just opened its doors in the highly desirable Rittenhouse Square neighborhood.
Developed by Modus Hotels and Parkway Corporation, the 252-room property takes the title of the sixth Pod Hotel in the country, including Pod 39, Pod 51, Pod Brooklyn, Pod Times Square, and Pod D.C.
Following the model of the successful Pod Hotels in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Washington D.C., Pod Philly features well-designed guest rooms and vibrant F&B spaces, where travelers are encouraged to connect with locals and visitors alike.
Pod Philly’s 234 guestrooms (averaging 180 square feet) and 18 larger studio rooms boast expansive floor to ceiling windows exposing sweeping views of Philadelphia. The interiors are designed by the New York firm, Stonehill Taylor, and carefully consider functionality to maximise the utilisation of space in the Pod Philly guestrooms.
“Modus Hotels is looking to energise the Philadelphia hospitality scene with the addition of Pod Philly,” explains Aaron Katz, President, and CEO of Modus Hotels.
“We believe there is a place in the Philadelphia hotel market for a fun, value-driven hotel – one that places travelers in the center of the city’s happenings inspires an outreach to local adventures and offers them a social experience that is new and fresh to Philadelphia. Pod Philly will allow travelers to do all that without breaking the bank.”
The property has three food and beverage spaces, each imagined and operated by Defined Hospitality, the restaurant group behind nationally renowned Suraya, Pizzeria Beddia and R&D cocktail bar.
