The service is exceptional, room always clean and the location is perfect for business or vacation. In the summer the pool adds a whole other vibe that you don't get at other hotels in NYC in the summer.

Jon Brite and the bell team were amazing. The Hotel was very clean and well designed. The hotel has so many things to do in and around it. The pool, the club, and the food is amazing as well. I would definitely suggest staying here.

Had a nightclub above our room which we were not informed of. There was sound masking in the room which was ineffective. When we advised of this, we were offered ear plugs which still didn't mute the noise. It was every night up to 4:00 in the morning. Would not recommend it unless you're in your twenties and looking to... More

I recently stayed at the Dream Downtown with my partner and had the most fantastic time. This hotel is by far the best I have ever stayed in, the rooms are awesome and the hotel is in the best location.

Great stay, Erick Wurz the concierge and the whole staff were great. But in the end, even after a late checkout confirmation for 16:30hs, I was charged 150usd additional. And no room to argue. Not even reasonable. But I would come back. Very small rooms, but sophisticated. Again. Look for Erick Wurz if you go there. Humberto De Biase

I stayed in the South Tower Terrace this past weekend as I was hosting my sister's bachelorette party and it wouldn't have gone nearly as seamlessly if it wasn't for the staff and overall setup of Dream Downtown. We had stayed at the hotel Friday night in a room in the north tower which had stunning views of Manhattan, specifically... More

I recently stayed at the dream for a business trip. Everything was amazing from the pool to the service we received. I especially loved Rita. Any concerns we had about our stay she was there for us. I'll definitely be returning for my next trip

I recently stayed at the Dream Downtown with my partner (we are both in our mid 20's and from Melbourne, Australia). Neither of us can say a bad word about this amazing hotel. The location was perfect, close to beautiful restaurants and bars and some great shopping. The staff were always helpful, very friendly and personable. The rooms were ultra... More

Stayed here for a week on a recent trip for work. I found the staff really friendly, the rooms were clean and were a pretty good size considering its New York. All in all it was a great location with friendly staff, overall great NYC hotel.

I stayed at the dream hotel For the last weekend of June for pride. My best friends and I rented the south tower terrace. THIS room is INSANE...

Thank you for the kind words about Rita she is a Rock star that we are very lucky to have as a member of our team. I am glad to hear that you have already... More
