In a city where hotels are a dime a dozen, do yourself a favor and look no further than Dream Downtown. The staff, amenities, atmosphere, and cleanliness separate a decent experience from an incredible experience. Please note, the hotel is welcoming to all, but 20-40 something’s benefit the most within this elite mecca of models, trendsetters, and their admirers. Don’t...

Warned that ground floor bar area gets very lively on Saturdays ( DJ in the foyer) but it was a good atmosphere and we weren't disturbed by noise. The...

Having booked through external travel desk I arrived into Ny to discover that they had totally screwed up my reservation and I had no hotel in NY! I arrived at the dream and they were super accomodating. Front help desk was superb - really appreciate all the assistance that they gave a frazzled traveller :)

The staff was all very helpful. The room was clean and had a good vibe. The hotel lobby area was a happening place and the guests all seem to be enjoying themselves. The check-in/out process was easy and efficient.

Stayed 1 night for my wife's birthday. The hotel was clean and appropriately busy for a hip place in the Meatpacking District- yet quiet when it was time to sleep. The text notifications were great and they were very kind in delivering a bottle of champagne. I would, and have, recommended it.

Everything about this hotel was great. The staff were amazing, the rooms were different to anything I'd seen before. The bar was just a lovely place to hang out during the early evening and the area that the hotel is in is perfect if you're a bit of a socialite. The fact every taxi driver knew the hotel by name...

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.
