Awesome design, rooms, lobby, nice people working there BUT don't come here if you need to have access to their internet. Their wifi is an absolute shame. Also, bring your earplug because the room isolation is not great. But I mean it is NYC so I could be ok with that. Wifi? No way.

We stayed at the Dream downtown for 3 nights before our trip to Cancun. The hotel has a cool nightclub vibe 24/7. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The only negative as the wifi speed was so slow, even to load basic emails and web browsing! All in all a great location and vibe for a few days R&R

We recently visited the Dream Hotel Downtown, deciding between different hotel choices for an event and Abigail Montalvo was incredibly gracious in taking us around and her hospitality made all the difference on our decision. We are definitely looking forward to being guests at the Dream.

The Dream is less of a hotel, more like a Club, with rooms - and that a good thing. Even on business trips, is cool to come back to a place that is alive, and this place is alive - 24/7. The rooms are actually quite large for New York.

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.
