If you're looking for a "club" vibe, this would be the place for you. It has a very cool lobby with music pumping as you walk through the doors. The pool area is an oasis in between the two Dream buildings and is the transparent roof of the lobby. Very cool. It didn't surprise me when taxis and limos pulled... More

I had an amazing stay for my birthday! The Dream staff, from the front desk to the elevator attendant, were super attentive and super nice. To my surprise my room was upgraded, something I didn't expect from a 4-5 Star hotel. Totally awesome and definitely going back for more!

Had a great visit to the Dream Downtown on our family annual holiday trip in December! The hotel itself was beautiful, clean, lively and very accommodating. The room was large (by NYC standards) and was always kept very clean and nice. The highlight of our trip though was Lindsey Gershberg the front desk associate who was so sweet and helpful... More

My fiance and I spent New years at the Dream hotel in NY. To start, the hotel had everything we needed - restaurants, hair salon, pool, etc. Plus it is in a great area. From the moment you walk in, you can feel the amazing vibe. The staff is young and really accommodating. The 24hr concierge helped a hell-a lot,... More

Thank you for the review on Dream Downtown, the feedback is greatly appreciated. The silver king room is one of our mid level rooms, on your next visit you should try a gold or platinum king. They offer much more space, with many windows, so that you can really take in the NYC skyline. I am glad that you and... More

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.
