We stayed at this hotel because it was close to Chelsea Market, you can literally walk to it in 2 minutes. The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly, especially to my child, he received a little sheep as a gift :) The hotel has a very futuristic/dreamlike design, everything is circles and the color scheme is grey, silver, bronze or...

Really enjoyed my experience. The staff members were exceptional. Lindsey Gershberg really exemplified what quality customer service is about. Would highly recommend staying here after only staying for a few days.

Stayed here for the first time on a recent business trip to NYC. Very funky, cool hotel. Not the type of place I would normally stay, but enjoyed it very much. Great lobby bar. Comfortable bed. Staff is very friendly. Not the place to stay if you are looking for a quiet getaway. Tao restaurant right around the corner.

Dream Meatpacking is located right around the corner from Chelsea Market, close to the subway, and in close proximity to all Manhattan has to offer. The rooms are modern in decor, well kept, and spacious throughout. In addition, this is by far the quietest hotel I have experienced in NYC -- I had one of the best night's sleep ever... More

I come to New York quite often for work, and I always stay at the dream. Ambiance and design / decor are modern, yet warm and welcoming. The staff is really outstanding, including their room service, which is on point even in the busiest times, and it does get busy! The bistro style restaurant downstairs, "Bodega Negra" has excellent breakfast... More

Spent a week at The Dream Downtown and absolutely loved it. Service was amazing and the entire staff was nice and super helpful. Got a couple recommendations of places to eat and go out absolutely loved all of them. Nurse Bettie Bar and Miss Lily's specifically. I will definitely be staying here in the future!

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.
