We booked this hotel partly for its location , partly the appeal of the pool and partly based on the T A reviews. We travelled on a 4 night city break and were pleasantly surprised when we were upgraded on arrival. The room was also ready for us when we arrived at 1pm. We had a 6th floor north facing... More

Well, I was there last summer, I'm sorry I did not find the time to write about this place before. Though I was there for business, I found any opportunity I could to lounge by the "beach", (pool with sand nearby) one could order drinks and food and bask in the sunshine in the middle of downtown. It was crazy!... More

Cool modern hotel with excellent service and attention to detail. Great pool, great food. Possibly the coolest rooftop bar in NYC. Highly recommend for a fun stay right in the heart of Meatpacking district. Rooms are small but modern with every amenity required.

The hotel service and environment was above and beyond what I expected. Had a couple of issues with stay but I should have been more prepared. Pool was great and hotel was lively with plenty of action. Also great hair salon. Will go back for sure.

Hotel was enjoyable and all the staff was friendly. It was a great stay even though it was short. The hotel is clean, the rooms were very unique. We loved seeing the U.S. Flag designed in the wall in the lobby made of beer cans. There was an amazing view of the pool from the lobby with great lighting and... More

The Dream is awesome. The pool is one of a kind. The service and people are kind and always available for help. You can't go wrong with the location. And, whether you're into the nightlife scene or not, go check out the view at PHD on the top floor.

Stayed here for an extended period of time for work and the service and amenities were fantastic. The staff was incredibly helpful and always very nice when I asked them for anything and they were always willing to go the extra mile to make my stay more enjoyable. On top of that, the restaurants that are part of the Dream... More

The Dream downtown is one of the best hotels to book if you are looking for a luxury experience with fabulous service. I always book at the Dream when I am in town on business, but even for vacationers this is a great spot to get an authentic New York experience at one of the best downtown hotels in Manhattan....

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.
