In my recent travel to NYC I stayed at Dream Downtown and found it to a great fit for me. The rooms were fun and comfortable. The hotel staff were all very friendly and accommodating, especially Jennifer, the front office supervisor. The location provided many choices, if you wanted to go out, the options within walking distance were abundant, and... More

This is my first time staying at the Dream. It definitely has an authentic rock n roll feeling and is a fun place to hang out. The bed is softer than my preference but, all in all, a very cool place. Location is great too as the Whitney just reopened nearby.

I stay at the Dream often for business and am always satisfied with the rooms and staff. The Hotel is located close to Chelsea Market and there are many wonderful restaurants within walking distance. The pool is beautiful and give the feeling of being in paradise while in New York City.

Seconds from the High Line, the Hudson River and Chelsea Market, it's hard to think of a better location. The hotel pool and garden are an oasis. The service was very helpful and friendly. I've stayed in a lot of NYC hotels, and I rarely sleep as well as I slept here. The in-room white-noise machine was a nice touch.

I am very critical of where I stay and I travel for work so I get to do and stay at a lot of 4 and 5 star hotels, and the Dream was amazing! Amazing nightlife, my wife and I had a blast, and the staff was bar-none the most accommodating out of any staff I have ever met. The... More

I had a great stay at the Dream - great location, amazing beds and super attentive service. It's a very "young" and hip place, and even though I was just an out-of-town business traveler, I was treated great. My only complaint is there was a lot of partying going on (that's fine), but the room doors seem very thin and... More

I stayed at Dream for a business trip and the location was awesome. Walking distance to Chelsea Market, a ton of cafes and restaurants and the Chelsea Piers. The hotel itself was very friendly, staff was very helpful. My only comment is that it would have been nice if the room had more outlets--especially near the bed--and a coffee maker!

Recently, I spent a couple of days at the Dream Downtown. It was my second stay at the hotel and each time I enjoy it more. I originally chose the hotel because of its proximity to my business meeting (the Google building next door), I go back to it for other reasons. The staff is courteous and helpful but unobtrusive....

Unfortunately I only got to stay one night at Dream Downtown, but I'll definitely go back! There was a cool vibe in the reception/lobby area that made me feel like I was in a hip bar. The reception staff was friendly and professional, and the room had fantastic interior design. Very comfortable shower and beds!

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.
