I come to New York on a monthly basis for business and have stayed in different hotels from uptown to financial, after staying at the Dream for the first time a year ago I have not strayed away. The location puts you in the middle of the city with great access to transportation from the subway to taxis, for the...

I truly love this hotel. Every time I get to NYC, I love staying here. It's the location, it's the staff, it's the service and it's the cool atmosphere. Sitting in the lobby for a drink in the middle of the day is the best way to close good deals. The pool ..... Wow. Don't miss the PHD. It's the...

For the price, I would have rather stayed at The Standard. I liked the location, but the room was pretty sparse. The bathroom sink was stainless steal, reminding me a bit of a jail cell, and there was no counter space to even put my face wash on. Everyone knows a mini bar is expensive, but good luck trying to...

I stayed with my mother at the Dream Downtown in mid July for 5 nights. The Hotel itself was gorgeous with generous sized rooms - particularly given its NY! The location was super convenient - nice and close to the subway but away from midtown / touristy heftiness. Love the meatpacking area too - plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby....

I stayed in the hotel for 8 days and enjoyed the full time I was there.

My friend's room was loud, they're small too. Cool finishes but more like a well designed, modern hostel with a great bar and entry. Mehta restaurant was great but also over priced. It's location is great. Staff very good. No cell phone service and free wifi was not easy to use.

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.
