Everything was excellent. My colleague and I were accommodated from the moment we stepped into the hotel.

Amazing location - close to great restaurants and nightlife in the meatpacking district and the concierge made some great recommendations for everything from our group dinner to a private table

Great food - I have to recommend the room service breakfast, we loved our breakfast in bed looking out at a view of the NYC skyline

Cool rooms - you never know what you're going to get when you walk into an NYC hotel room and this one surprised with a great modern aesthetic, roomy enough to fit both of us comfortably, and the beds were divine - like sleeping on clouds!

Great music, Beautiful views with the NYC Skyline, sexy people and great vibe make for an amazing night out in the Big City!!!! Ricardo Lopez thanks for the invite because we had a fabulous time. It has been years since I left a lounge at the wee hours of the night. I can't wait to go back to see what the rest of the property is like.

The Dream Downtown is an Ultra Modern boutique hotel - very nice decor for the young crowd. Rooms are small.. And clean. Bathrooms are a bit too modern for functionality but useable. Great food in the restaurant. Upstairs bar can be a bit snobby as well as the PHD club to hotel guests.. Amazing restaurants nearby!! Cherry next door is a gem of a sushi place - off the hook! Also the Italian restaurant around the corner serves authentic Italian food

Room Tip: Go for a silver or gold room

I recently stayed for a night at the Dream as a part of a bachelor party get together. After months of planning our day at Dream's pool and over night stay, among other activities, with Rita Melssen the event came together better than planned. Rita was fantastic and the pool, rooms and service was even better than I had hoped and saw on online. I got many comments from my guests that it was one of the most fun hotel experiences they had been on and will definitely return again in the near future.

My wife and I wanted to get out of our house in the suburbs and have a "staycation." The Dream was everything and more. Alfonso at the door is a gem and checking in and out was effortless. Our favorite part of the hotel and stay was the pool. We found great chairs, and the staff was amazing. Jason, the poolboy, made it the most relaxing weekend and took the time to get to know us which is rare in this industry. Everyday he greeted us with cucumber water which is out of this world!! PHd was beautiful and will defiantly be back soon!!!
