I travel A LOT for business and stay in NY often. I was interested in trying the Dream Hotel because I heard they had a fantastic rooftop bar... The bar was indeed fantastic although we were there 4 nights in a row and had to BEG to get some peanuts! Each night we were told "we don't have peanuts" we... More

My friend and I were on a fast trip to NY one day in the Catskills and one day in the city. We were told by a few people to take the train into the city because it was cheaper than a car. DON'T DO IT. If you are going to the Dream Hotel the subway does not have a... More

My husband and I stayed at Dream for one night. We found the front desk to be very helpful and professional. We stayed in a large room which was adequate. The room was neat, the linens were clean but there was alot of dust under the platformed bed and the shower had a small amount of mold. The spa was... More

We stayed 2 nights at Dream for some sightseeing and shopping; the general NYC travel experience. We we greeted very nicely, we had a great room(little small) but we knew this before staying here. The rooms were clean and staff was very friendly, often going out of their way. Location was great- short walk to Times Square. Subway around the... More

The Dream Hotel experience for myself and my family this past December turned out to be the highlight of our holiday! The Dream is a beautiful hotel in a great location. The rooms are clean with nice decor and the service was one of a kind! We had a great Manhattan view and we especially loved the penthoouse lounge which... More

Yes, the room was small, but I reserved the small room. The bed was a dream-down comforter and pillows and the fresh "cotton" scent. Though I didn't have a view, the room was very quiet and efficient. The bathroom had more storage for "stuff" and Chropa products were replaced when unnecessary. I was in NYC for business and pleasure and... More

I heard mixed reviews before staying her but as I frequent traveller to NYC I like to try new hotels however I will I had never tried this hotel. Although the hotel was only opened a year or so ago the room walls were so marked up and dirty it looked 10 times its age. Everything felt old. Taking a... More

We stayed in a medium-size room for 4 nights. Very nice room but there was no view from the window. (A wall a couple of meters away) I liked the neon lights under the bed and in the desk. The internet connection was not wireless, but pretty fast and costs about $10/day until 12PM. Every morning we got newspaper outside... More

I read the reviews and had to see for myself. The spa is a 5 star and restaurant a 4. The hotel is just adequate. The rooms are smaller than any hotel I've stayed at in New York and feel like a white box. From pictures you'd think it was a minimalist theme but it is simply a cheap imitation.... More

"What a dump." If you like a small bed, in a tiny room, with a miniscule bathroom that is filthy at best, then do I have a hotel for you....Dream. I too have a Dream of charging $200+ for a beat up dirty hotel with poor service. Unfortunately, I have a conscience and would not do that to my fellow... More

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.
