“The best lobby in town”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

The best in town, the lobby is fantastic, the staff is really friendly and most for al the let you feel to be a real guest, sleeping 120 day a year in hotels and can say if you like a place to stay to party this place is the place to be.
The location is great as well in the middle of all the clubs and bars, they have PHD is a real nice nightclub.

All you want under one roof.

Room Tip: Had 2 types of rooms and both nice for NY standards

The best hotel lobby in town that is a bold statement, however I agree with you and thank you for the kind words on Dream Downtown. Not only do I think we have one the best products in town I truly believe we staff the hotel with the best employees. They are the soul of the hotel and I am pleased to know that they made you feel welcome while on property. We hope to have you back at Dream Downtown in the near future

I stayed at Dream Downtown for a weekend in February, using it as my home base to meet with friends and family in the city. The location, if you want to be on the West Side, was super convenient, and the ACE is right up the street. It's also across from Chelsea Market and walkable to the High Line. The rooms were funky and well-appointed, and the bathroom was very interesting with a chain-mail shower curtain. Bath products were of good quality, as was the bathrobe. The lobby converts to a lounge by night and was busy with young, attractive people having a good time when I returned to my hotel each night. There is a night club in the hotel but I was not bothered by noise or unnecessary traffic. Valet service was superb and hotel staff was friendly and accomodating. I'd definitely stay here again on my next visit to NYC.

Arg1125 I really appreciate the glowing review on Dream Downtown. I am very happy to hear that you used the hotel as your home base when you are in the city. We want all guests to view Dream as a home away from home and love when they keep coming back for more. Being in the heart of the meatpacking district only adds to the top notch offerings at the hotel, which from the sounds of things you enjoyed all. I hope to have you back in the near future

A great location and very modern hotel. Rooms neat, tidy and comfortable. The desk in the room was a tad small but I have never found a large room in a New York hotel. The Staff could not have been more helpful & courteous

I love Dream for style and location, however the rooms are not comfortable/functional. The room looks great, but the bed was awful, the bathroom sink had no space to put cosmetics, etc., and the only other mirror was in the closet. The room was not functional for female travelers. The hotel is beautiful and there are great bars within. PhD has the best skyline in NYC! The location is great!

Dear Roxanne B,

Thank you for the candid review regarding your recent stay at Dream Downtown.

The skyline views at Ph-D still take my breathe away - it is fantastic that you were able to experience it. On the other hand, it is most regrettable that you did not find your guest room to be functional. Our beds are in fact padded with a pillowy featherbed which can be removed upon request. We are also adding an additional vanity shelf one by one into each bathroom. Please feel free to reach out to me directly when planning your next stay so that I can see to your arrangements personally.

Kind Regards,
Rita M.

I loved this hotel. New, modern with a great hotel staff. The size of the rooms were just fine, not too small, and after all, this is New York. How much time are you going to spend in your room?
Nice breakfast, a little expensive. Great location. Very nice and clean.
