I stayed at the Dream last week for 4 nights on a girly trip to NYC with my cousin, unfortunately returning back to London on Thursday :( My stay at the Dream was nothing short of amazing. Would like to say a big thank you to Von for the room upgrade due to our request on facebook! As Von said,... More

On arrival we saw our first Celebrity "Lindsay" if you read trip advisor you know who I mean. It was my wife's birthday, Lindsay hooked us up with a beach front room. Room was great pool was great phd was great.... More

We stayed at the Dream over Memorial Day Weekend. Perfect in every way! The front desk staff is phenomenal for a trendy hotel. Warm, welcoming and make you feel at home. Lindsey G. made us feel like we were the most important guests in the hotel - but really I think every guest felt that way! We were greeted each... More

Location is just perfect: metro station is just around the corner, all nice restaurants and happening places are in the walking distance. Room was big for the New York standards and staff was fulfilling all our wishes. Toiletries were great. The less positive thing is that wardrobe was too small. It was hard to organise clothing as we came for... More

The Dream Downtown has emerged as one of the hippest places to stay in Lower Manhattan. My girlfriend and I choose to stay at the Dream every Memorial Day Weekend for many reasons. Location, location, location. The Meat Packing District has gone through an amazing revitalization over the last few years offering great dining, bars and cool clubs. The Pool... More

Spent a long weekend here and had the most amazing time. They let us check in early which meant we got to take advantage of the warm weather down at the pool. Food & drinks were delicious!! Our room was clean and the staff was amazingly helpful suggesting restaurants for us to dine at and making us reservations. The hotel... More

The hotel has a brilliant location in New York City in the meat packing district. It also has the added benefit of a lovely pool which is a privilege in nyc. The rooms are fitted as expected with the usual mod cons and are comfortable. But all this is to no avail as the lobby turns into a nightclub every... More

Spent 4 nights at this very hip hotel located nicely in the Meatpacking district. The hotel turns into a crowded meeting place for the young New Yorkers every night, but still it is somehow easy to get a good night sleep. Maybe because of our jetlag? They also have a very nice pool area but you have to book early... 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.
