I don't know where to start. I arrived and found my room to be absolutely disgusting. The bathroom was dirty, the paint was peeling off the walls, the phone and clock looked to be twenty years old, half the channels on the TV didn't work, room was ice cold, etc. Frustrated, I went to the front desk informing them that...

We booked 4 days for our honeymoon and arrived a day late. We were told they sold our room that was per-paid and then made it out like they were doing us a flavour by giving us another room with two single beds. The room was on the first floor right above a night club so sleep was not a... More

Stayed three nights in November, 2012. Mini family reunion - One sister from Baltimore, one from SLC and one from Sacramento! We hadn't stayed at the Dream before and were curious after we read some of the other reviews. We were IMPRESSED from the minute we walked in. Every member of the staff was friendly, happy to help and knowledgable.... More

The lobby way is fab and the decor beautiful. Rooms are small and basic but its Manhattan and they were very clean. Staff friendly and great. THE BEST PART.......roof top bar and club, by far one of the best parts of our trip! The club really comes alive at night and you can spend hours sitting in the sunshine watching... More

The positives: great location, hip vibe, nice rooftop bar, comfy beds. The negatives: it feels a bit worn, slow elevators, the shower had mold, and very noisy doors. I did not think you got enough bang for your buck.

Dear Nancy, Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent stay. I can't apologize enough for not providing you a restful night which is any hotel's primary purpose. It’s simply unacceptable that we missed the opportunity to apologize, move you to one of the many quiet parts of the hotel and avoid this entire scenario. I can... More

Had a great experience at the Dream. Staff friendly and professional, rooms spotless, location ideal (so easy to go for an early morning run in Central Park), bars and restaurants on site good and reasonable for New York, and even got a room upgrade which made an already competitive rate even better. It would take me a lot to want... More

I tried very hard to escape Manhattan before hurricane Sandy hit the city but could not get out in time. So I made the decision to find a hotel in midtown because I felt that they had a good chance of having power through the storm. We took a car service on Monday (the day the storm started to roll...

There are some hotels that are just too hip for their own good. Dream is elegant and modern, but not too over the top hipster. It's not cheap, but it is lush and comfortable. The whole place has a feeling of decadent romance due to the materials used...fabrics, wood, steel. All very well executed.

Not clean, unfriendly staff, dark rooms, a lot of noise from elevator and club/bar. Gym closed and no information about this was given before hand. Bad bathroom products. Other guests complained about the same thing when we checked out. I would never stay here again.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
