Loved almost everything about this hotel - the great location, the swimming pool over the reception, with shimmering light streaming through onto the lobby, the chic bedrooms…. only blob was the deafening music which rendered conversation with the receptionist nigh impossible, and the fact that, despite his assurances to the contrary, that the same thumping beats pulsated through our pillows...

I stay in many hotels but when I visit NYC on business my #1 choice is Dream Downtown. My recent stay was so good that I took the time to do a review. The Dream Downtown is an upscale hip hotel that allows me to entertain business clients in a fun yet sophisticated setting. The location allows me to get... More

Great location, easy access to subway. Modern look, low platform beds, good internet connection. Staff was courteous and accommodating, bringing me amenities that I forgot to bring along. Always greeted me warmly and asked how they could help.

Stayed here for a work trip - loved this hotel! It is the perfect place for any young professional, young couple or for a girls/guys trip. The location is amazing as it is just steps away from the high line and Chelsea Market. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I will definitely be back again!

This hotel is in a very trendy area with a hot rooftop bar and an abundance of nightlife options! Great lobby with awesome art and rotating photo exhibits. Great location, steps away from the meat packing district, High Line and Chelsea Market.

The hotel staff were all very friendly and accommodating, especially Jennifer, the front office supervisor. The location provided many choices, if you wanted to go out, the options within walking distance were abundant, and... More

This is my first time staying at the Dream. It definitely has an authentic rock n roll feeling and is a fun place to hang out. The bed is softer than my preference but, all in all, a very cool place. Location is great too as the Whitney just reopened nearby.

I stay at the Dream often for business and am always satisfied with the rooms and staff. The Hotel is located close to Chelsea Market and there are many wonderful restaurants within walking distance. The pool is beautiful and give the feeling of being in paradise while in New York City.

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.
