I spent three nights this past President's Day Weekend at Dream Downtown and had a wonderful stay. The staff, especially Lindsey and her team at the front desk, were knowledgeable about the city and helpful with everything that I needed. The room, with two doubles, was so much bigger than Manhattan hotel rooms in which I normally stay. The bathroom... More

I frequently stay at the Dream and this is the first time I've written a review. This property is centrally located and there are amazing restaurants and bars within walking distance which is always a plus! The staff is warm, welcoming and accommodating - much more than I can say for other properties in the area I have stayed at.... More

We traveled to NYC from Manchester on Christmas Day.The taxi dropped up outside the hotel and to be honest it didn't look like it did in the photos from the outside. However, when we got inside - the photos became a reality - what a fantastic looking hotel. The man on the door had the lady at the check in... More

This is a fun Hotel. The activated lobby area, cafe and bars each have an eclectic and individual feel, offering more than enough interest for a good time. The rooms are a little on the small side, but well appointed all the same. In a central location in the meatpacking area, The Dream is a convenient located and a very... More

Very nice dowtown hotel, great deco, super staff, good service, fedtive and sexy atmosphere and good restaurants in house. Great location for hanging around dowtown. But: strangely enough the designer forgot putting anything to hang stuff in the rooms that are nice but not terribly practical. The gym is too small, outdated and needs maintenance. I could only see the... More

Thank you for taking the time to relay your most recent experience at Dream Downtown. I am glad that you enjoyed your overall stay. The pool is actually a good size for a NYC pool, measuring 50ft by 11ft; guests can often be seen swimming laps in the warmer months. Thank you for the feedback in regards to the hanging... More

My wife booked a surprise weekend get a way with for my birthday last week and things couldn't have gone any better. We checked in and were immediately upgraded to a larger room and king size bed to boot and did not even ask, so that was a very pleasant right off the bat. After a couple of hours we... More

We love contemporary hotels that stand out from the rest. In New York, there are many options but knowing we wanted to spend time exploring, eating and drinking in the Chelsea/ meat packing district, this was the ideal location. Ambience is important to us, we chose this hotel specifically for a bit of luxury, location (2 steps from Chelsea Market... 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.
