This is just a review for the rooftop lounge. We did not stay at the hotel, but were told by friends to go to the bar. So happy they did! Great comfortable seating, many layers of patios all around the roof for a 360 degree...More

Went to have a drink at DREAM with a great friend I haven't seen in ages. Personally, the decor of the lobby I found nauseating and tacky. Too much going on visually. The door to go upstairs to the bar, with a 2nd floor pool,...More

Really not much special about the AVA Lounge. Perhaps its better in the summer with an outdoor rooftop view. March inside was 'just ok'. Cocktails were fine, but pricy. Decor and ambiance not that great. Hard to have a conversation.

You’ll need to make yourself presentable to gain entry to the roof terrace of the Dream Hotel—no hats, trainers or ripped jeans here; you’d only ruin the chic, palm-tree-studded decor. Come for sunset or gaze at Times Square at night

This location was extremely too small for it to be advertised for anything other than a in-house hotel bar. The room has four couch seating area along the window with the supposedly picturesque views of the city (probably before the current construction/expansion of the nearbing...More
