The Pod Hotel project has finally risen above ground level in Chinatown. The New York based hotel operator is bringing its signature tiny rooms to the Chinatown section of Penn Quarter at 627 H St NW. The hotel will eventually be 11 floors tall, with 245 keys. The rooms will be about 150 square feet, which doesn't seem that small to me? But, you can decide: Have a look at a singles pod at the Pod Hotel on 39th in Manhattan. The DC hotel is scheduled to open before the end of 2016.
