Make sure to ask if your windows are facing scaffolding. The work starts at 7 :15 in the morning. You will wake up for construction workers walking by your windows and loud contraction noise. Definitely not a 4 star experience.

This is one of my favorite hotels in New York because it's so close to the meatpacking area and the Chelsea market. The hotel has a pool and the roof top bar PhD is great for happy hour drinks or late night parties

Had some work to do in Chelsea and booked this hotel based on the outstanding location. I knew it had a funky vibe based on the online photos, but had no clue how trendy and unique it would be until I walked into the lobby, saw the impeccably dressed patrons and realized I was out of my element. But it...

Really cute hotel with cool vibes. Close to lots of restaurants and nightlife. Stefanie at the front desk was super friendly and knowledgeable! We booked a room with a beautiful city view. It was amazing to see the Empire State Building at night. Will definitely return soon!

Love the Dream Downtown! The combination of the friendly, helpful staff, the lively lobby, the incredible location and the peace and beauty of our lovely room (this time with a view of the Empire State Bldg) made for a fabulous stay.

This was my second time at the dream, and I love it! The rooms use the limited space excellently, e. g. the bar and closet hiding in the wall; however, when you open the door, you have another mirror. The shower is a 'dream', I could stay in there all day, well, it's large enough to have a crowd in...

The staff were responsive and personal. The lobby is really nice and the room is none like I'd seen before. Very modern with high ceilings and every current technology outlet for your use. The room has personalized messages welcoming you into the hotel. The best part was definitely the staff. Would recommend to anyone staying in that area.

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.
