I'm just getting around to writing this review even though my 11 year-old son and I spent three glorious nights at the Dream Downtown over his school spring break back in April. I'm reminded of our fabulous stay each time I recommend it to friends looking for a place to stay in NYC. We didn't start out at the Dream.... More

I have to be honest and say I never write reviews because i am in the hospitality business myself and I know what these can do to your business good, bad, or indifferent. I stayed at the Dream downtown last night, and i must say it was the best time ever. Upon arrival I got the chance to meet Vaughn... More

My husband and I just spent six nights here and hated to leave. We’d stayed before, last October, but this time was different. I think due to the warm weather – thus being able to take full advantage of the hotels’ spaces and offerings. Like having tacos and a margarita while sitting at the open air bar just in front...

This is a great spot for millennials. Forget it for Boomers. The rooms are super small with Spartan amenities. The public areas are jumping: the lobby, second floor pool and bar, and the rooftop bar and club. Noise is big- people & music. The rooftop club was overrun with good looking young women outnumbering men - all well dressed and... More

I have stayed at the Dream the last 3 times in NYC. I come to NYC just to get away for the wk end, and the Dream is perfect. The location allows me to walk to everything I want to do, but if I don't want to go anywhere, you can have the best time just staying at the hotel... More

I always stay at this hotel when I am in Manhatten. Trendy little spot in Chelsea, great customer service and the staff is awesome. Never a dull moment as there is always an event taking place. The roof top lounge is primo, and the poolside bar is inviting. Beautiful gem hidden in the city.

My wife and I could not say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay and the outstanding guest service that was shown. A special thanks to Lindsey for going over and beyond to share in recognizing our special day. Perfect from the door to door. Excellent job to all. Thank you.

We often travel to NYC for business, and this is the third time we've chosen to stay at the Dream. The location is brilliant, and the staff even more so - it always amazes me that they remember my name every time I walk through reception, and no request is too difficult. Also love the little touches like chocolate in... More

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.
