For all my extended business stays in NYC, I keep it relatively low-key and conservative for the first days and treat myself to guaranteed perfection at The Dream Downtown for the final night(s). The entire staff is so well coordinated, polished, warm, and respectful. My most recent stay was extraordinary. Most notably, the concierge, Erik Wurst, as well as Samuel... More

Dream Downtown has always been one of my favorite spots to spend a relaxing evening among friends! From fun and festive to a nice, low key chill, Dream has always been able to accommodate our array of moods and characters. I love the funky furnishings and the way the daylight splashes around through the ceiling Which is also the bottom... More

The hotel is gorgeous, beautiful design and great amenities. It´s in a great location and the staff, especially the bellhops, are super friendly and very helpful. I loved both the restaurant and cafe, but the staff at the Bodega Negra Cafe was far superior. If you are looking for a quiet hotel, this is not for you. The hotel is... More

If you are looking for a friendly hotel in one of NYC's hottest and best locations, along with a great restaurant and club, this is the place. Has a great pool which is an added feature for a hotel in this location.
