Pod Philly Hotel

Project Description

Located in the heart of Center City, Pod Philly is Philadelphia’s first micro hotel. The 11-story micro hotel is an efficient example of smart design that boasts engaging public spaces and offers 252 guest rooms at approximately 170 square feet each. The tight, uniquely oriented site benefited from an aggressive and innovative value engineering process that ensured a visually appropriate, functional design could be delivered within budget. Ultimately, the rigorous effort during pre-construction proved to be worthwhile, as an innovative hotel destination was realized on a challenging Center City site in the midst of a bustling shopping district.
