Where business meets pleasure, this full-service luxury hotel is a hot spot for both guests and locals alike, known for both its top-tier amenities and cultural events like on-site art exhibits, pop-up shops, and seasonal events. Dream Downtown's loft-style accommodations and energetic atmosphere capture the fresh, creative spirit the Dream brand is known for. Situated in the heart of the trendy Meatpacking District, this boutique hotel is within walking distance to popular destinations like The High Line, Chelsea Market, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and Union Square. It’s also nestled in between famous neighborhoods SoHo, Chelsea, and West Village for the ultimate shopping experience and proximity to a wide range of art galleries. Though the pool is available all year round, the Dream Beach is open throughout the summer for a true getaway experience, right in the middle of Manhattan (21+ after 12 p.m.).

Neighborhood
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.

Location was great and staff were friendly, however... Tried to call 4 times before arriving at the hotel and not a single answer. Three attempted to call the front desk from our room while we stayed and no answer then either (Had to walk downstairs). Pictures of the rooms look fantastic but in reality our room was dingy, musty, and did feel in the slightest clean. Left our name with the pool to get a chair and never got a call back. Took us asking multiple times to have our mini fridge emptied out. Ordered food at one of their restaurants and they somehow forgot to make it. As someone who stays in only 4 or 5 star hotels I cant even imagine how much money this place paid to receive a 4 star ranking since they clearly were not capable of delivering the service required of one.

Met my girlfriend in the city to celebrate my bday. The hotel is in a great location and the lobby is very cool. She was checked in already when I arrived and we went up to the room to change and head out. The room is ample size for NYC and has an interesting vibe. The only room complaint is the bathroom door is awkward to open and very heavy. The view was ok aside from the rooftop next door looked like a garbage heap. Beds were comfortable and room stayed dark and quiet for a nice rest. When we arrived back at night there had been some type of altercation and police and broken glass were strewn in front of our hotel. I almost fell into an officer as I tripped over the broken bottles. This hotel seems very young and I probably wouldn’t stay there again. The nightclub up top, which we didn’t go up to, had a long line of 20 somethings waiting for the elevator, so probably not our scene. A nice pool in the middle, with limited seating and girls twerking were also not really our speed.

Where do I begin...Dream hotel is supposed to be a fun getaway in the city in the summer. I was disappointed as soon as I walked in. Check in is at 3pm, our room was not ready til 5:20. At this point that is unacceptable as you are cutting into the guests time. We had reservations that had to be pushed back because we had to shower and get ready and did not get settled in until late. Secondly, because of the late check in they offered to upgrade us...when we walk into the dream it seemed like a downgrade. we initially booked a room with a balcony and they gave us a room with no balcony. How is that an "upgrade"? We then go back downstairs say we want the room we booked in the first place and the girl at the front desk says "oh so you want to downgrade?" we politely say we do not understand how a room with a balcony is a downgrade but we would like our regular room please. At this point, it is now 6pm. Lastly, service at pool is SUPER SLOW and no one checks up on you. If you order any drinks or food be prepared to wait 40+ mins for it. Very bad impression, do not think I will be recommending anyone to stay here.

Lobby gets crazy at night with club-like atmosphere, but room was nice, clean. Bathroom amenities are OK, less than what you'd expect from this expensive of a hotel. Overall though... Good experience and great location.
