Loved this hotel- we picked the meat packing district and we picked this modern new hotel on purpose and were not at all disappointed. From being greeted at the main door, the room being ready, the trendy decor and the swimming pool (with a glass bottom) over the bar/ reception area we were very happy indeed. We loved the location, Chelsea Market 3 mins walk, Greenwich a stones throw away. We ate at Pastic, Buddakan and Bills Burgers all withing 5 mins of the hotel. We had cocktails int he roof terrace- with great views and welcomign service. Wehad a lovely room, and despite a great bar and roof terrace no noise at all (room 325) and we were so happy with it. Overlooking the swimming pool below, and big flat screen HD TV on the wall. We did not eat in the hotel because we were out and about but there is a steak restaurant and Japenese restaurant in the basement. The staff were all gorgeous, well dressed and they were all very happy to help. I will definitely be going back! Metro was one black over on 14th street and we enjoyed how easily we could get everywhere.

Room Tip: we were in the tower which shares the lift with the PHD roof top bar. We had a very quiet room and so we could be in the party but when it was time for sleep- we could.

This is a friendly and well managed hotel aimed at a young and trendy clientele but attractive for expetienced travelers.

The $330 room was clean and well maintained. Too often hot NYC hotels ignore basic maintenance and cleaning. This is an exception.

The pool, even in winter, is warm and relaxing. The rooftop lounge is overrun by young rather stupid and vacupys fashionable types but has s good ambience nonetheless.

The hotel is very modern, and well appointed, great location, great service from the staff. The restaurant and bar were well worth visiting and enjoyable. This seems to be the chic late night hangout for many people. The hotel rooms were average size and very comfortable. The only problem is the street noise, and the noise of the nightclub which thumps through the building until it closes. After it closes you are then subjected to noisy clubbers pouring into the street yelling and trying to organise themselves to leave, which leads to car horns etc. if you are a heavy sleeper, then your fine, and you can enjoy a good hotel in a great location. Hotel staff advise that the windows on the street front are double glazed - if this was so then why can you hear every conversation of people coming and going from the hotel. Would definitely stay here again but would request a room inside the building not street facing.

Dream Downtown is a well situated, expertly designed hotel, but it is not a hotel intended for children. It has a young, chic party crowd. Noise levels are very high. Some rooms come with earplugs.

The hotel is in close proximity to Greenwich Village, the High Line, Hudson River waterfront, Meatpacking District, night life, great area restaurants and some of the best public transportation options for the city. You can get from the hotel to any part of Manhattan in less than 30 minutes. Taxicabs are plentiful in the area.

The pool is heated and opens year round. It has a glass bottom view of the lobby. The lobby is spacious and comfortable, and its open concept allows you to see all the action in the bar and the pool at the same time. The lobby restaurant has an excellent menu. It’s a great place to have a breakfast meeting or an afternoon celebration. At night, it’s a very noisy hot spot that will work for some. It gets very crowded and there’s lots of traffic to and from the rooftop lounge, which is quite popular. It has a lively, fun, party atmosphere. It’s a bit more sedate by day.

The staff is very helpful and accommodating, professional and friendly. The rooms are cozy and not very spacious. Ours had a view of the Empire State Building. Some have balconies and some lead onto the pool deck. But beware. Those only work if you don’t plan to sleep at night. The beds are comfortable. The bathrooms are contemporary, but the sinks are the least practical items in the rooms, followed by the lack of adequate storage space. The minimalist furniture arrangements seem to work.

Everything is computerized and centrally controlled, so the lights shut off after you leave the room. But it also means that when one thing fails, everything has to be rebooted to be corrected. Not the most convenient aspect of your stay when you get in late at night or if you are not tech-savvy.

Overall, the stay was excellent. It’s a wonderful place to relax and lounge indoors or out. You can spend an entire day without leaving the hotel and not be bored. A rare find in the middle of the city.

Room Tip: If you seek peace and quiet, request a higher floor overlooking the pool. Be very specific that you want a quiet room.

Dream is a hip hotel with small but cool rooms. I was there on a business trip which kept me away from the different night clubs but there always seems to be a party around the next corner!

I arrived early for check in and was pleased that they were able to find a clean room so i could prep for my meetings. From doormen to front desk to concierge, everyone was polite and void of an attitude you might expect at hotel with a similar vibe. Wifi is free, everything was spotless and in order. Fun place to stay. Only criticism would be slow service in restaurant for breakfast (my fruit plate was wonderful) and slow bar service while sitting on the couches in the lounge.
Also, seemed unnecessary to charge me $4 bucks for a cup of coffee to take to my room after I just finished spending $20 for breakfast including a $6 cappuccino. Not sure why high end hotels need to nickle and dime guests in this manner BUT overall I was very satisfied with my stay.
