I chose the Dream Downtown for 2 reasons: (1) it was close to the West Village where my daughter lives and (2) since I was traveling with a friend, it was the only reasonably priced hotel where I could get 2 beds. The architecture is interesting with a porthole motif and very modern rooms with stainless steel and glass. There is not much drawer or closet space but, otherwise, the room and bathroom were a nice size. We were on the 2nd floor and our porthole window opened and we could directly experience the newly fallen snow. And the bed is comfortable. My friend is allergic to feathers and the hotel provided non-feather pillows and what the hotel called a hypoallergenic room.
At night, the entire lobby is taken up with a DJ in a bright ski hat playing loud, lively music for youthful hipsters. Fortunately, we could not hear it from our second floor room.
Housekeeping wasn't great but, otherwise, the staff was helpful. I would definitely stay at Dream Downtown again.
And, as an aside, when I returned home I realized I left my (non-valuable) jewelry in my room. I phoned and spoke to security. An hour later he called back to say he located it, asked me to describe each piece, and he arranged (at my expense) for the concierge to Fedex it to me. I am thrilled that he made it so easy for me.
