Overall experience was great! Staff was excellent! Only complaint was the shower head in my room was a little defected and sprayed water. Again, the hotel staff made you feel like you were their most important guest VIP.

This hotel is so well-known for it's night life, that we didn't need to tell the cab driver an address. He said "everyone knows where the Dream Downtown is". That was a comfort, since we were coming from out of town and appreciated the confirmation that we chose an upstanding place to stay. We reserved a platinum king room, but...

Cool hotel. Nice location. Nice design and nice lounge bar. Service also great. Be aware though that it's very noisy in the night because of the rooftop club and the bar in ground floor. We heard hard pumping music in our room on 12th floor every night. Breakfast restaurant super pricey and not good value for money.

The hotel is centrally located in the meatpacking district, just right by Chelsea market and within minutes of a walk to the High Line. The lobby is very well decorated and the rooftop pool is really nice and trendy. However, the walls are rather thin as the street noise can easily be heard into the late hours of the night...

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.
