My husband and I stayed at the dream downtown and it was pretty nice, but very young...the rooms are nice and pretty spacious, however the bathroom sink is too small they need a bigger vanity esp for women trying to do their makeup. The only thing we didn't like was the fact that it seemed to be for younger ppl...so... More

We had an amazing time at the Dream downtown and were lucky to have had gorgeous weather in April for NY standards. This allowed us to make use of the amazing pool deck the Dream has to offer. Our room was a Platinum Suite which had two private balconies and our own entry onto the pool deck....pretty sweet. By booking... More

Just returned home after my fifth visit to Dream Downtown. It is my go to hotel when I visit each quater for business. The location is ideal, the Meatpacking district is always buzzing with amazing restaurants close by. I tend to always visit Buddahkhan, Bodega Negra and this time discovered my new all time favourite restaurant Santina on Washington St.... More

If you are looking for a relaxing time and want to read your book in the lobby, turn back and go somewhere else. But if you are in NY for a weekend and want to have fun in a modern, young, fun and luxury hotel, the Dream is for you. We were there for 9 nights, so we have been... More

I'm a relatively low maintenance hotel guest so it's a pretty simple review here. Good location Helpful staff Decent rooms (initially I thought the room was small, however this is apparently the norm in nyc) Downsides: Very trendy, and thus the associated prices You can hear a lot in the rooms - thin, thin walls. Would happily stay here again.... More

Recently stayed at Dream downtown for a friends bachelorette and we had a great time. Spoke to Rory who was super helpful! He basically helped us book and plan the entire weekend. Originally we were planning to get a standard room, but he asked how big our group was and recommended we upgrade to a suite. Thank goodness we listened!... More

Contrary to the reputation people in New York have.. Everybody at the dream was uber nice. Even the valet greeted us and remembered to welcome us back every time when we never used their services. I mostly want to point out Lindsey Gershberg who was super gracious to us. If you are checking into the Dream soon.. Be sure to... More

We stayed at Dream DT around Easter. There were nine us including three kids aged 3, 9 and 12 and their Grandmother who is in a wheelchair. For a hip destination hotel like Dream it is fair to say we are not the key demographic. But having stayed here in April 2013, when we decided to return to NYC on... More

Paul, I can’t tell you how happy I was to read your review. Though Dream is traditionally thought of as hip/trendy destination our goal is to make every guest, regardless of demographic, feel like a VIP and to have a memorable experience. I’m so glad we were able to deliver on our goals with you, your children and grandmother. We... More

We didn't arrive at Dream until 10PM and Lindsay was very helpful at checked in. She made us reservations for the Mexican restaurant. She tipped us off on getting access to the rooftop bar. She got us in our rooms quickly. The room was great for sleeping. Cozy bed. Nice TV. Nice Bath. It's small, but I was only in... More

Thank you very much for reviewing Dream Downtown. I’m so glad to hear that you were able to experience so much of what we have to offer on property.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
