When we go to NYC we always stay the Dream Hotel. From the second we pull up, they know our name and take care of us the entire visit. The rooms are trendy and clean. The Platinum Suite is particularly spacious. Lindsey at the front desk is fantastic!! She is super helpful and even sent us a free dessert for...

I stayed in a room of this hotel during 6 nights. Everything was ok. There was a very nice bar and a club in the ground floor that I never visited. The noise is very well managed, I didn't notice there was a club until my 4th night when I arrived very late and saw people getting in.

I spent almost 50 room nights at the Dream Downtown last year and appreciated the consistently friendly staff & personalized service, from the front door to the front desk. Given my work schedule, I always requested a quiet room and never was disappointed. While I've tried different hotels in the meatpacking district over the years, I've settled on the Dream.

It is definitely one of the hottest spots in the Meatpacking. The lobby is so cool, the rooms are big enough and the staff rocks, especially the concierge guys Eric worst and Christopher Scali. They both offered us great recommendations, and they made us discover new amazing spots and activities in the city. Additionally, it includes IGK salon, which one...

Thank you for your review of Dream Downtown! It sounds like you were able to experience all that the hotel and neighborhood have to offer.

Every aspect of our stay at the Dream was really pleasant. The atmosphere was fun and exciting and the room was so comfortable - had a great night's sleep too. The General Manager, Dan, personally greeted us and made the whole stay even more special. Even for our two little dogs. Couldn't recommend the Dream enough!

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.
