With traveling for business, the Dream Downtown was a great location near Chelsea Market. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and I enjoyed the art on the main area and on the way to my elevators near the salon. My room was clean and modern, with a little pizzaz...entry music ;) A comfortable bed under a high ceiling, too....

There was a fire in our apartment so we stayed at the Dream for over a month. They were incredibly accommodating and even let us keep our dog with us. Everybody -- from the front desk to the bellhops to the restaurant staff to the housekeeping to the bouncers -- helped us get back on our feet. We're so grateful.

Great location first of all, in the meat packing district in Chelsea. The hotel is beautifully designed, with attention to details, from the lobby to the rooms: Good staff and service, which isn't a trivial thing in nyc from past experiences. Two wild bar/clubs inside the hotel, and a beautiful crowd. The weekend get's a little crazy here, but that's...

The Dream location, right next to Chelsea Market, is very convenient. The lobby is definitely a scene, but the room on the 5th floor was sufficiently far away, and quiet enough, not to feel like you were sleeping in a dance club.

I stayed at the Dream for a few nights in early December 2015. Location is great for getting around central NY with a $15 taxi getting you to Times Square etc (with daytime traffic). Rooms are comfortable and well proportioned, and I didn't notice any noise problems whilst there. The onsite restaurant serves a great variety of median inspired food...

The Dream is centrally located just outside the Meatpacking District, right near the A-C-E 14th street stop. The hotel itself is unlike any other -- ultra-trendy but accessible.

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.
