We travel often to NYC for work and love staying at the Dream downtown. We've spent about 3 weeks there total this year (so far) and have no complaints! The staff is super friendly, the accommodations are perfectly swanky and the food and drink options are solid. Plus, there is a club in the building so the evening people watching... More

So happy I chose to stay at this hotel for my stay in NYC. The vibe as soon as you walk into the Dream Downtown is unlike any other hotel in NYC. Everyone you meet is super nice and helpful and the music is always pumping, putting you in a great mood instantly. Check in was quick and easy (love... More

The dream hotel downtown is a great place to stay for the atmosphere, a lot of fun and cool comfortable rooms. The staff is very friendly and helpful hotel is decorated marvelously. The rooftop bar club is a lot of fun as well as the other lounges at the hotel there's always something to do.

It's always a pleasure staying at the Dream Downtown for our business trips, we are always very satisfied with our experience. When he had to make a last-minute change to our schedule, Yelena in reservations was very professional and helpful.

I love the DREAM downtown, it's right across the street from Chelsea Market (Which has my favorite taqueria) and is a hip and trendy hotel. The rooms are spacious and the hotel staff is very friendly. It definitely is a bust hotel and hosts a lot of parties but I like that there is a separate elevator for the hotel... More

Just got back after 1 week; this is definitely a very good place to stay in NY. Great location, lots of ambiance, great rooftop (and lots of music every night). Room space is never "the" thing in NY but it was also correct. Note : if you want to sleep well, dont book a room on the 11th floor as... More

Recently, I called Dream Downtown to inquire about the rates. Reservation agent Sikerita I believe but not 100%, was so friendly and charming, she convinced me to book a room there. She was also quite helpful to assist me with the location of couple of my business meetings. She should be recognized in some ways to go that extra mile.... More

My husband and I stayed here in June.... Late with review! We stayed in a king balcony room which was very nice... However after our suite in Vegas it did seem cramped. This hotel is very popular with the young hip hop happening people but we love to people watch so we didnt mind not being hip. We spent a... More

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.
