My wife and I decided to spend an evening in NYC for our anniversary. We chose the Dream Downtown because of the location. The hotel is located in Chelsea and borders the West Village. Two great neighborhoods. When we arrived the valet service immediately took our vehicle without a wait (price was very reasonable). The entry in the hotel is... More

I was looking for something special with a rooftop pool and a fun atmosphere to celebrate my partners 34th birthday and the Dream delivered. At times it felt more like a nightclub than a hotel. The design is funky with clean lines, modern furniture and stylized lighting. Of course, what you get in style you often give up in functionality.... More

The first thing I noticed was the attention to detail in every aspect here. Dream Downtown is second to none when it comes to the amenities: sophisticated vibe throughout, spacious and modern rooms with cloud-soft beds, superb views of the city skyline from the rooftop club, beautiful people everywhere, and an all-day party at the pool, not to mention the...

Stayed for one night on a quick get away. Hotel is by far really beautiful. We were upgraded to a suite overlooking the pool. The room was spacious, and the bed was heavenly. Went up to the PhD rooftop lounge but the scene was really wild for our taste so we left immediately. The front desk staff were very accomodating,... More

Sophisticated design, trendy setting, a beautiful place for beautiful people. And Party everywhere.... The rooms are comfortable, the bed so warm and soft, the location is easy, walking distance from a variety of restaurant and from the highline for your morning run. The concierge team is doing a great job, sharing good adresses with passion, understanding your style to find... More

Great location on the edge of the Meatpacking district. The hotel has a great vibe about it - very busy lobby bar and restaurant and a great roof top club - POW. Bedrooms are minimalist (could do with some storage drawers for clothes and shelves in the bathroom for toiletries) and of a very high spec. Ideal hotel for a... More

Dear Mel M - When you’re right, you’re right! We are making our final selections for the additional shelf in the bathroom for toiletries and we’re exploring converting our nighttables to include drawers… Spot on! Thank you for keeping us honest. We’re on it. More

I stay at the Dream whenever I travel to NY for work. It really helps take your mind off of the day by falling into an extremely comfortable bed. Also, the personal welcome on your TV is a great touch. You are within walking distance of a ton of great restaurants and you never know what famous person you might... More

Dear Mark M I’m a fan of the blueberry pancakes, I must say. Chef Michael Armstrong is working in some new items; be on the look-out for potato pancakes, huevos rancheros omelette, mon dieu! That is heaven. It’s worth the extra lb’s I can assure you. More

Very cool hotel. This the place to see and be seen. My suite had a nice view of the Empire State building and the beautiful city sky line. Both room and the bathroom were clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

A fun sheek hotel with Hippster sprinkles. The staff never cease ti amaze me. Such a pleasure Staying at the dream. Checking in is such a breeze compared to EVERY other hotel.

Dear mnlutter - ‘Little south beach’, we love that one!! Wow, what an amazing review. We go to great lengths to start the check in process while you’re still getting out of the cab. We know most hotels don’t pull that off. It makes such a difference. I know my friend Ayo would agree. I will share your comments with... More
