We recently visited the Dream Hotel Downtown, deciding between different hotel choices for an event and Abigail Montalvo was incredibly gracious in taking us around and her hospitality made all the difference on our decision. We are definitely looking forward to being guests at the Dream.

The Dream is less of a hotel, more like a Club, with rooms - and that a good thing. Even on business trips, is cool to come back to a place that is alive, and this place is alive - 24/7. The rooms are actually quite large for New York.

The room was nice & clean. Excellent position, great view from the 11th floor. Young and trendy people pack the lobby during the weekend. On the other end the music from the club on 12th floor, and from the lobby, slightly surround the room till 2 or 3 in the night... Considering the room fare, I'd like to sleep if... More

This is a well designed hotel. Very well designed. My room was amazing. One of the nicest hotels I’ve staying, honestly. The room was quite, had circular windows, a cozy low-to-the floor bed, leather furniture, well designed amenities. And the service was top notch.

This hotel is a must stay, we were celebrating my best friends b-day, so we stayed a couple of nights and found that the staff were very attentive and helpful in every way. The rooms were outstanding and clean. The location of the hotel couldn't have asked for a better spot.

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.
