I'm writing my review after my third stay at Dream Downtown last weekend. All I can tell you is if you're staying in the Meatpacking area, THIS is the place to stay. I love everything about DD....the location, the decor, the restaurants (Bodega Negra and Cherry), the staff (literally, every time I ran into anyone on the staff, including the... More

Rooms are fun and different, small as is typical in NY. Beds super comfy. Water pressure is amazing. I only ate breakfast onsite and it was quite good. Pool bar is lovely - hard to find in NYC. Hotel lobby is super cool b/c the ceiling is the floor of the pool right above it. Very unique. Not great for... More

Stayed for a few nights on a business trip, and the staff were very cordial. From the moment you step in, you realize that this is a club atmosphere. The room is no exception, with their round windows, glass bathroom, modern decor and very comfortable bed. Some of my colleagues had noisy rooms, so be sure to ask for a... More

This was my first trip to New York in almost 8 years. A few friends recommended Dream Downtown and I was more than happy with my stay. From the moment I walked in the staff was great (specifically Lindsey who helped with my reservation as well as checking me in). The room I stayed in was very comfortable and spacious.... More

My girlfriends and I needed a one day staycation in the city. The Dream Hotel was exactly what we were looking for. We stayed on a Friday night in a great room and then headed to the pool Saturday morning. Athena is the Pool Supervisor and made everything PERFECT for us! She was supper nice, always making sure we were... More

Nice hotel. Well designed. Great restaurant. Nightclub comes first, hotel second. Part of the reason we booked was the pool. Couldnt get a chair by the pool most days as it was full with non hotel guests! Most days pool closed early for private functions. The nightclub staff are extremely rude. We checked that a table wasnt reserved before sitting... More

I booked at this hotel only because it is the closest hotel to my husband's travel dialysis center that accepts pets. I was on a business trip to NY and my husband was joining me. We did not realize how much fun we were in for. There is a beautiful restaurant and bar on the second floor by the pool.... More

Feel like when I come to this hotel, I'm at home. The hotel has so many great things to offer that you really don't have to leave your hotel! Every time I come into NYC, this is my spot to stay! If you are looking for an "all in one" def do the Dream!

Arrived for a one night stay with my wife. Service was top notch from the moment we walked into the hotel until we left the following afternoon. Always lot of activity in the lobby, bar, pool, and restaurant. Young, hip vibe. Staff were all extremely friendly, helpful, and down-to-earth. Pool scene on a Friday afternoon was very cool but also... More

If you like shabby chic for $400 a night, your in the right place. Concrete floors with an area rug...really? I've been in college dorms that were much better. The rooms smelled like mildew and Lysol. There is no complimentary coffee on location. Over $20 for 4 cups of coffee delivered by room service only. Rooms with two double beds... 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.
