My mother and I came to NYC as a treat for my 40th birthday celebrations and what a great place. We were looked after the moment we stepped foot into this super-cool and brilliantly located hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and couldn't do enough to ensure our short break was a memorable one. Something really worth pointing out was...

I booked a suite as a special treat for a friend's birthday, and it couldn't have worked out more perfectly. Check-in was a breeze, even though we arrived slightly earlier than a standard check-in time, and we were shown right to our gorgeous, very modern 2-room suite overlooking the pool area. I can't speak highly enough of the customer service...

The front desk staff continues to be one of the best in New York City. The Dream has something for everyone--a great social scene if you're there for a fun trip and location near tons of bars and restaurants (including some great ones on-site), or comfortable rooms with desks if you're on a work trip. It's been my 4th or...

My room was ready early, which was awesome. Everyone I dealt with from the moment I walked in to the moment I checked out was personable, sincerely friendly, and so accommodating throughout my entire stay. The decor and ambiance gave off an effortlessly cool, yet still very "metropolitan" and trendy vibe. I ordered from In Room Dining from Bodega Negra...

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.
