I've stayed at the Dream a few times on business trips but this last visit was particularly impressive. I love the online check-in email you get prior to staying where you can make special requests (like being put on a quiet floor as some floors close to PHD or the pool can be noisy). The rooms are the most spacious... More

We had a pool view room with a balcony, which was fantastic. The pool scene is terrific and we had no problem getting chaises late morning, but afternoon was... More

This hotel is beautiful and modern and the staff is courteous. But the crowd at this hotel is ultra trendy and more interested in nightlife than anything. Stay here if you're going to be out all night at the clubs. The rooms are very loud, in that you can clearly hear any activity in the hallway outside of your door.... More

This is the perfect hotel for bachelor parties, bachelorette parties, and anyone else visiting NYC with nightlife in mind. The Dream is even better in the summer months, when the outdoor pool is in use. Great scene. Very hip and trendy. Worth noting that PHD Rooftop is a hot night spot in NYC and there are always long lines to... More

We had the best time at Dream, spacious and clean room, fun pool with lots of great restaurants in the hotel and very close by. We also went to PHD inside the hotel on Saturday night and had a great time. The shower was a bit either hot or cold, I couldn't get it warm, but that is also a... More

I highly recommend this trendy, beautiful hotel. I live in NYC and stayed at the Dream Downtown Hotel for a "Staycation." I completely forgot that I was in NYC as there is no reason to leave the hotel! The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. The room was gorgeous and the pool was FANTASTIC. I also highly recommend the restaurant.... More

After extensive research, I chose this property because it seemed like it would provide a real summer party atmosphere, a uniquely gorgeous environment, and attentive enough service to insure their stay would be special.

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.
