We really liked the Dream Hotel Downtown! Nice rooms (a bit small, but nice), good service at the front desk, great facilities, etc. A lot of night clubs, etc. Maybe not a hotel for families with small children.

This past August I booked t trip at the Dream Downtown for 3 nights and it was my best hotel experience ever. As someone who works in the hospitality industry and works at the Dream South Beach I am a tough critic. The staff was amazing and the whole vibe of the hotel was unlike any other I have been...

You cannot beat this location. You're just yards from Chelsea Market and the High Line...! And you feel you're IN as soon as you cross the front door. Modern, cool decoration, nice people, friendly staff, definitely I'll be back. But.........check rates....peak season=toooooo expensive. So, take advantage of some specials because if you don't...you will like....too much.

Being a New Yorker at heart, i can teel that this hotel gives you that very vibe NYC offers every second. Despite the small rooms, the rooftop, the pool and the ER makes up for it. The proximity to the Meatpacking is always a plus too. Strongly recommended for people of any age that wants to fully enjoy NYC.

We had a great stay in NY and Dream Downtown hotel is very close to everything, Meatpacking, Chelsea market, Highline, shopping and dinning.The PhD, the hotel nightclub, had a spectacular view of NY skyline. The service was superb and we didn't want to checkout after our 3 nights.

This is a great hotel, it's very nicely done out. I ordered a bronze king room and assume that's what I got - I didn't really have a reference point to know differently. My room was on the 10th floor overlooking the pool. The room was a really good size (a real plus by NYC standards), clean, a very comfortable... More

Thank you for the honest review on Dream Downtown, the feedback is greatly appreciated. The hotel certainly does become very lively during the weekend. During the week the hotel is populated with many corporate travelers, then transition into a hotel for leisure travelers to enjoy all of the amazing amenities we have to offer. There are two towers in the... More

I've been in Dream Downtown already 5 times and I recommend it to all my friends. I always come back to the hotel because of the great service and the great location. Last time we took the room next to the pool and I would recommend to book them in advanced.

I visit New York often on business but recently travelled for a weekend with my wife and stayed at the Dream Downtown. It was a wonderful experience. The pool was perfect for a New York break, hotel design was refreshing and the customer service was exceptional.

The Dream Downtown is an oasis of comfort and hospitality nestled in the rejuvenated meat packing district in Manhattan. The amenities are first class and the staff are attentive to guest needs. There are also great choices inside the hotel for food and entertainment. I can't wait to return to the hotel during a vacation for some time near the... More

Stayed here from Friday Sept 12-15. Stayed in a platinum king suite which is in the south tower (has a balcony with overlooks the pool). The room was very very nice, separate living room area from bedroom and nice big bathroom. Very modern but still comfortable. The pool area was really nice too and not too busy, no hassle getting...
