I have stayed at the Dream Hotel several times in the last year and it continues to deliver outstanding personal service every time. It is by far the best Hotel to stay at if you are in the meatpacking area, I've tried the others and the Dream and its accommodations and staff is a level above the others. The whole...

I go to New York regularly and know a lot of hotels there. Dream Hotel is my new favorite. Jennifer at the front desk got us into a room early as I usually come in on a red eye and always struggle with the late check ins at the other hotels. From there on everything went smooth and the service,...

We stayed at the Dream Downtown for my daughter's engagement party. We had a suite in the south tower so escaped the noise of the two nightclubs that friends in the north tower complained about. We loved the aesthetic and comfort but the big hit was the staff. All were welcoming and beyond professional and friendly. I have to particularly...

Well located and very vibrant. The rooms aren't overly big but they were well appointed and clean. Loved staying there although my partner and I are mid aged and did feel at times, our age. Lots of young people obviously frequent the bars and love hanging out there.

This hotel is beautifully. The location (Meatpacking) is our favorite in NYC and is walking distance from some of the best restaurants and bars in the city. The rooms are spacious, clean, modern (exactly what you'd expect from the Dream-team), and beds are comfy! Lobby is beautiful, staff were extremely helpful and hospitable. Will definitely be staying here again in...

Place offers everything you need from a comfortable room, although you can hear between rooms. Location suits what we need when we come each year. It's a perfect place for what we use it for and will come back each year.

I always try to stay in new hotels but when I visit NYC my loyalty to Dream downtown kicks in. It's my 3rd time staying there and the service and quality keeps getting better.

Hotel location is extremely good: Meatpacking District, that is to say the most sparkling area of Manhattan, just few steps from Chelsea Market. Lobby and commons spaces are cozy, well maintained. Rooms are very spacious for NY standards, especially the bathroom (with nice amenities), and they are overall clean. Hotel has a very nice (and very small) outdoor pool, and...

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.
