Awesome location, arty and inspiring rooms and restaurants. Staff are fab but unless you are in your 20's and super stylish you can feel like an extra! Check out the weekday happy hour at Megu - fab cocktail and bar menu for reasonable prices.

If you're heading to NYC to party, this is the downtown place for you. With five bars in the hotel, the most comprehensively stocked (with alcohol) mini bar I've ever seen (complete with 'Love Kit') and close to the Meatpacking District and in the heart of Chelsea, Dream Downtown gives you no excuse to not have a good time. The...

Stayed with Dream Downtown for second time in less than a year and it was as great as the first stay. This visit included our young adult son, so we opted for the platinum suite (for the space). Nicely appointed room that included a few extra amenities that our previous stay (silver king room) did not. Thoroughly enjoyed the (2)...

Having just returned from a second, week long stay at the Dream, I have nothing but good words to say! Dan obviously runs a tight ship as every detail is taken care of. However the relaxed and upbeat nature of his team shows just how much they enjoy their jobs. The house keepers are saints, the front desk and lobby...

I recently stayed at the Dream Downtown in NYC and had such a good time during my stay with friends. This was our first time in the big apple and I felt the location was central to everything on our itinerary! We were able to walk to some locations or hop on the train which is conveniently located at the...

I've been to the Dream Downtown several times for drinks at their rooftop bar. They have some of the best views, being all the way west. Only negative is the price, but it is meatpacking so you know what you're in for. A glass of wine runs about $15, so I stay for usually just one to relax and look...

We have just come home from a six night stay at the Dream Downtown in NYC. While the hotel is in a fantastic area, literally across the road from Chelsea market and also walking distance to superb restaurants. BEWARE this hotel has a big club vibe. It has a night club on the top floor (12th level) and after staying...

First time at Dream Downtown and I like it! The location with some of my favorite restaurants close by is awesome. The room me and my husband got is a bit small for 2 adults with 2 suitcases but its clean, comfortable beds and a nice view of the city so we forgot about the size of the room pretty...

Friendly staff at check in. Room was interesting, I had a platinum suite which was worth it because I had plenty of room. Was never able to figure out the lighting system in room. View from room was the other tower, and if I walked out on the balcony I had a view of the city to the right. Did...

A very nice hip hotel with a rooftop club and swimmingpool. Found the room a little to small but not a big problem, it was very clean and we had a nice vieuw on the city. The club is very good and busy. This may cause some more noise somehow, but nevertheles we enjoyed our stay.

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’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 neighbourhood 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.
