The hotel was really hip and just had a buzz about it. The pool is really awesome and the bar/club were great too. The rooms were nice and a little more spacious than expected, and we love the Chelsea/West Village area which made this an easy location to walk to just about anything.

Love this hotel, Great for young ppl that are looking for a trendy spot with exceptional food and bev, THE best pool (and beach!) in nyc and more.

Second stay here at the Dream, and it was excellent, but a different side to the Dream than the first visit, when I was with two teenage girls. This time my fiance and I were able to have a romantic weekend away and enjoy the clubs and bars on site. No reason to leave the hotel! Food, drinks and service... More

This is literally home away from home in the city. The Dream is literally a Dream. Fancy venue, great food, friendly and courteous staff from check in to housekeeping. If your a young couple or a young group of friends looking for a great place to stay and party at night this is your hotel. Pool on Sat/Sun is awesome... More

I cannot recommend this hotel for business travel, even if it's in a very convenient location (It's just across the street from my office in New York city). The Dream hotel is what I would define a "party hotel," with loud music playing until 10PM. Even in my room I feel that I'm in the party, and getting back from... More

Stay at Dream Downtown if you like party hotels, bad service, walls so thin you can hear conversations next door, the slamming of room doors all day and night, dance music coming from the basement and rooftop clubs of the hotel keeping you awake till 4am ...did I mention the BAD service!!!!

We stayed at the Dream Hotel for three nights during our most recent visit to NYC. The staff was beyond helpful and attentive. E.g. They were able to get last minute reservations in any restaurant and made sure we were well accommodated at all times. Very kind and always with a smile! The hotel is trendy and has a young... More

I booked this stay back in March and was looking forward to staying over night in the city - I even got a great rate (Bronze King).

Picked this hotel on a last minute stay in the city. The hotel had a "party" feel to it, young crowd, parties by the pool, night clubs. The staff was very friendly and helpful, rooms are typical size for NYC hotels, but with some unique decor. Would have given it a 5 but it didn't seem like a very clean... More

Staying in Chelsea

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.
