I chose to stay at Dream Downtown because I get my hair done at IGK, which is inside the hotel (an amazing salon- yes I travel all the way to NYC just to get my hair done). The staff was so friendly, and before my stay they were communicating with me to make sure my room would be ready by...

Thank you for your review of Dream Downtown! I'm glad you enjoyed your experience wih us. You would be surprised at how many of our guests travel to the hotel specifically for IGK! It's my favorite amenity at the hotel. It's great to hear that you found our text messaging service useful. We've just recently implemented it and guest feedback...

this is an excellent place if you are looking for a lively hotel with a great location. But don't look for a quiet corner in the evening, apart from your room. Food in the cafe is good. Service is attentive; room service may be more discerning though

Stayed here recently for 3 nights on a business trip and I will come back again! I arrived really late for my check-in - 10 AM the next day and was given a room right away without being charged for it. Really appreciate that, since I had flown all the way from India and was really tired. The decor is...

I stay in many hotels around the city due to work but I must say Dream Downtown is a favorite! From the moment you walk in you're genuinely greeted by the doorman and escorted to the front desk. Staff members that check you in are down to earth, super friendly and very informative. The suite I stayed in was "pristine"...

The hotel was great located close to Chelsea market and a lot of nice restaurants and shops. The hotel has a pool and a gym. We were there in January, and the pool was closed. We however used the gym which was great, with free water and towels. Our room was the smallest one, and it was pretty small, but...

The Dreams Downtown exudes New York City glamour. It all starts off with a hot crowd, great music, cool lounge, hip night club, good food, and killer service.

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.
