Had the great pleasure of staying one night at the Dream Hotel Downtown NYC. I was there on business but the entire staff did everything they could to make my stay memorable. The room was great and the concierge, Eric, did a great job helping me to make the most of my time. Great location, beautiful building and outstanding staff!... More

It´s a fun, young, cool and modern hotel - we arrived late Friday night and my teenager son highly enjoyed the nightclub feel in the lobby... The room was great - comfy beds - great house keeping - they even emptied the bar on request as we needed to store some meds in the fridge.. Pool was fun - great... More

This is a party hotel. Don't come here if you don't want to be in the downtown NYC party scene. We used to live in the neighborhood so we knew what to expect. And everything about the room was nice except for the glass bathroom door. Service was far better than I expected, exceptional even, and of course there are... More

NYC is expensive. This hotel is fun and flashy. Hard to beat the pool & beach. Rooms can be noisy but who are we kidding - you are gonna be out there making noise! Food is good. Staff is friendly. Neighborhood is great fun. Make sure to chill by the pool, you will not regret ordering a bite to eat... More

My recent stay at the Dream Dowtown was accented by their talented concierge, Erik Wurst. Not only was he able to accomodate my unique requests but he was able to deal with the timing I requested. Chocolate covered strawberries sent to my room at 11:30pm arrived on time. Last minute pick-up with a car needed from Madison Square Garden after... More

I was looking to propose to my girlfriend and after speaking with Eric from the concierge desk, I felt pretty confident that he would see to every detail. As nervous as I was, Eric went above and beyond making sure all the details were arranged to help ease my mind. I can't thank him enough! He and Nate reserved a... More

I have stayed in many hotels over the world and yet Dreams Downtown still managed to surprise me from the minute I walked in the door. I loved the location perfect spot to be in if you want to stay in Chelsea. Very modern but not clinical. Door man and the check in staff were fantastic and made my check... More

The location is ideal for my needs and I have tried several other hotels in the area as I travel to NYC frequently, but have found this to be my "go to" hotel without question. It has a hip and unique design, great balance between business and pleasure type of energy, perfect mix of amenities and restaurants, boutique atmosphere with... More

Very interesting place to stay in nyc. Couple of blocks from high line park in Chelsea one of my favorite neighborhoods in manhattan. Outdoor pool where you can order food and drinks was a big draw and it didn't disappoint. The staff were very helpful especially one Jon Brite who got a master key to my room so that I... More

I have been working in NYC for over 15 years and have yet to find a hotel that makes me feel as welcome as the Dream Downtown. From the friendly staff at the front door, to the front desk and beyond!!! Teresa Lausell and Vaughn Davis (Guest Service Managers) have made every stay better than the last, with personal notes...
