If you want to be in the thick of the scene, the dream downtown is the place for you. Not only do you have two of the best spots in lower manhattan above (PHD) and below (Bodega Negra) your hotel but you are surrounded by great food, nightlife, and attractions. Check out Chelsea Market for tasty tacos or authentic Italian,... More

This was my third trip to Manhattan, but my first in the dream downtown, and I wasn't disappointed. All the staff at the reception and concierge were very helpful. I accidentally left clothes behind and they arranged for them to be forwarded to me. The room was not only immaculate but tastefully decorated. The bar was great for cocktails and... More

As they say, this isn't just a great place to sleep but a suite of entertainment services designed for the eclectic traveller. The staff make this boutique hotel a fully integrated hub for seasoned dinners, and fabulous partygoers. I can't recommend this place enough if you like a unique hotel experience.

We enjoyed our stay at the Dream Downtown thoroughly. The second we pulled up in our taxi we were greeted by one of their great doormen who then showed us up to our room. He remembered our names for the remainder of our trip and took the time to personally greet us everytime he seen us. The rooms are ultra... More

we checked in on a busy Friday night . the place was rocking , it seems to be one of the most popular party places around . the room was a tad bit small but fashionably done ! the thing missing is a tea/coffee maker so you do have to get up early and walk down the street to get... More

We chose the Dream Downtown for a girls' reunion weekend in New York this January. From the doormen to the front desk team, everyone was incredibly polite, warm and helpful. The front desk knew that two of us were celebrating birthdays and brought out champagne while we were checking in. The room was modern and large enough, but did have... More

Due to the snowstorm on 1/26, I was able to stay at Dream to be close to my office. I found the service outstanding. I only interacted with the front desk attendants and the servers in the cafe but found all were friendly and polite, especially given what I would imagine was a long day for them with the snowstorm's...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Dream Downtown in midJan for his birthday weekend. To be short and straight to the point the hotel was INCREDIBLE! The front office manager Megan greeted us and made us feel so welcome. She even suggested, upon our request, what was good at the Mexican restaurant inside the hotel (and escorted us over)... More

I write this review with mixed feelings because I wish my review could remain more positive as I think there are some things done really well at Dream. Dream hotel had so much potential but it's only once you step into your room and start using the facilities where you very quickly start to see this hotels flaws. My issue... 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.
