Although the hotel is clearly directed at a particular age demographic; we were there with our son and daughter aged 22 and 26. I found the dark lighting in the reception too much but on mostly every other area the service, staff, rooms and rooftop bar prove more than satisfactory but I wouldn't say excellent. The restaurant was small and... More

This was my third stay at Dream Downtown, but my first time in the summer months, which allowed me to take advantage of the pool and the outdoor space at PHD. As usual, the staff at Dream are friendly and accommodating, from the valet, to the front desk to all of the restaurant/pool bar staff. Well-appointed, comfortable rooms and bathrooms... More

If you're looking for pools, tacos, sweet music and rooftop things, then look no further. This place is so hot right now. Stayed for a week - amazing service, great food and drinks, and a really buzzing atmosphere.

I stayed at Dream Downtown for an event that my company was sponsoring. The hotel was fantastic! The rooms were bright and clean. The customer service was excellent. The hotel itself had a great vibe, a fantastic lobby bar that had a live DJ at night. The outdoor pool & rooftop bar was gorgeous! The room design was very pretty... More

I recently stayed at The Dream while I had guests in town visiting. The Dream has a reputation for being a very nice, but very lively hotel, so I called twice to ensure that my room would be on a quiet level at the hotel. When I checked in on Thursday around 6:30pm, I was told that my room, that... More

The hotel totally made my visit to NYC. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The room made me feel like I was in cruise-ship-from-the-future - docked in the middle of Manhattan, I was able to peep my favorite West Village locales from my port-hole window. The bathroom was super-cool with penny-tiled floor and enclosed in semi-transparent glass. There was... More

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.

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.
