PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Construction is underway on a new hotel in Philadelphia — probably unlike any you’ve ever stayed at before.

Ground was broken Tuesday on the Pod Hotel Philly at 19th and Ludlow.

It is Philadelphia’s first-ever micro-hotel. That is a hotel with deliberately small rooms, but common gathering spaces designed to promote socialization among travelers.

The 11-story hotel will open in September 2019.
