The location near the Subway system and a block from the MeatPacking District - the most fun area in all of NYC - cannot be beat. Add to that the phenomenal design of the property, the multiple restaurant and bar options, and a staff which could not be more welcoming and gracious, and you have a great overall experience.

I travel to NYC at least 7 days every month. Most of my travel is alone for work and I tend to stay at vibrant hotels like the Standard, W hotels, etc. The Dream has become one of my favorites. It has a great location, great atmosphere and great service. Sitting in the lobby, watching the pool (it's under the... More

My husband and I were travelling to NY for our Honeymoon. We ran into a LOT of trouble on our way there and as a result, needed to extend our stay in NY until our truck would be ready. We originally wanted to stay at Dream for our Honeymoon but the first dates we had checked out were booked. When... More

Room was small but the ceiling height makes it feel larger than it is. Bed super comfy and bathroom spacious. Very trendy and close to good restaurants. Pool looks amazing but it's winter so did not get the chance to experience it.

We were 6 girls who could not wait to get away from the daily grind and celebrate our best friend's wedding engagement.

Me and my girlfriend stayed at the Dream Downtown hotel last week for 4 days and we highly recommend it. Both of us have been in New York many times before and the Dream Downtown is by far the best hotel and made our stay better than expected.

After reading some of the previous reviews about the lack of good service and loud volume heard in the room, we were skeptical about staying at Dream. However, I can honestly say we were so pleased and impressed with the level of service, friendliness of staff and attention to details in the hotel. We have stayed at many hotels in... More

Thank you for giving Dream a chance despite some of the negative reviews you had read. Providing top notch service is something that we pride ourselves on, as I believe that this is the only way to truly separate ourselves form the other lifestyle hotels in the city. Lindsey is a new employee here at Dream and her desire to... 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.
