The staff at the Dream is always very helpful attending to any needs. The rooms are tastefully decorated and clean and well supplied with anything you'd need. In the spring the outside pool and lounge is fun. The location is great for taking the subway and/or a taxi. Recommend the Dream Hotel Downtown for sure

The hotel location is great. It's located near the meatpacking district (where everything is happening) and at the end of the block there's a subway station, so it's easy to manage in public transportation. The price is changing according to the day of the week, it's a bit expensive but still depends on the day of your stay. The hotel...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night and really enjoyed it. The lobby is chic and check-in was a breeze. Staff at the front desk were very accomodating. The bar attached is cool for a quick drink too (we even got a free drink ticket at check-in). We returned late-ish at night and the lobby was packed with...

This is a modern and clean hotel. I would recommend this hotel if you like to party and don't mind paying $20 per drink. Food and drinks are way too overpriced. I wouldn't recommend this place if you are a light sleeper or if you want to take advantage of a reasonably priced bar or restaurant within your hotel. Even...

I spent a week at the Dream Hotel Downtown during New Years and it was amazing, I loved it! I booked the Platinum King Room on the 11th floor as it had incredible views of the NYC skyline and was fairly spacious. The room was always immaculate, with housekeeping servicing the room twice a day (early afternoon and evenings). The...

I stay here a few times per year for a coupe of days at a time when on business in NYC. The place is young, fresh and the area keeps on growing with great restaurants and places to go to around it. Good place for a break or to stay when you want to unwind from work.

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.
