I thought I would share a little about this hotel, and we know we all have plenty of choices when we travel on places to stay. I have been traveling to NYC fairly regularly now a days for business and as much as I like collecting some points for status with some chains, I decided to try a different boutique...

I recently stayed at the Dream while traveling on business, but was tough not to enjoy all the hotel has to offer. The location is fantastic, right near Chelsea Market and the High Line, accessible to many of Manhattan's neighborhoods but tucked in the quieter Chelsea. The hotel is definitely Cool and Funky - more so than I typically choose,...

The Dream is by far the best htoel for NYC. It is in the Meatpacking which is the coolest area of Manhattan. Great shops, great restaurants, great clubs. The service at The Dream is truly a dream. And the rooms are so clean and big. We had the best view ever.

My wife and I typically stay in the Midtown area of Manhattan. This time, on the advice of friends, we tried the Dream Hotel Downtown in the midst of the meatpacking district. The location could not have been better: walking distance to the relocated Whitney Museum, across the street from Chelsea Market and close to many stores and restaurants we...

Sleep Quality and Comfort: As someone not familiar with this hotel, I made a mistake by staying here last week.

It is right behind the Google building close to Chelsea and MPD. Great if you are here for the meetings and then head out to some cool places to bond at the end of the day. Or just to explore the wares of downtown NYC. Metro, fancy stores, great coffee, great restaurants all are nearby. So the most important buckets...

I was in NY for a short weekend visit and stayed at the Dream. All the staff were very helpful and friendly.

Always convenient (across the street from Google NYC) and reliable (rooms are always clean, quiet - despite the lively night life that goes on every night), the Dream has become my second home in NYC when on business trips. Staff is always reliable and courteous, and accommodating to various needs (like early check in).

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.
