Loved my experience at the Dream Downtown. Excellent customer service, very friendly & professional staff, clean, great location with a beautiful modern design. Great breakfast bar, restaurants (food is delicious!) & club, very fun with awesome atmosphere. Extremely comfortable beds and great shower/bath. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel and I can't wait to come back!

This has to be one of the hippest and hottest hotels in town. Hotel + Bar + Club. Very nice breakfast place up front -- Jamaican theme. Nice lobby bar. Excellent service. And cool room with hyper modern decoration -- mesh wire floor to ceiling shower curtains -- funky light dimmers -- super comfy bed (a little soft maybe). Rooms on small side.

If your looking for a hotel for a w'end break that has a party scene then this is the one but bring ear plugs!! It's defo a people watching place & the club can be quiet varied in age, great main lobby bar. The area is fab for many bars & restaurants, Chelsea market for daytime food & bits & bobs shopping is just over the road this is great with a fab atmosphere we had b'fast there everyday. The hotels Is about a 20-30 min direct stroll into Times Square & 12$- 15$ In a cab to most tourist attractions.

Dear Sarahd831
Thanks for the review. For those with any sensitivity to noise, please request the South Tower. We have an entry to the building nowhere near PHD which really only effects 4 out of 315 rooms; well, maybe 8 out of the 315 rooms--no more than 10--and that’s that. We did try to offer those 12 rooms as Clu-tel which stands for “night club─hotel” hybrid. Guests were guaranteed access to PHD; instead of a wake-up call, we offer to call in sick at your job; 5pm check -out and some other goodies. We might have to bring that back.

One of the best trendy hotel in New York. Extremely alive, nice looking people. Friendly service.
Rooms are big enough for a trend hotel, shower is enormous, only the sink is a bit uncomfortable.
A part of the possibility to relax, some of the nicest part of the hotel are PH bar and the swimming pool.
PH bar is actually one of the best in new York.
Swimming pool is nice, especially in summer as it is open and has also a small beach.
Don't come here if you don't like lively atmosphere.

Hey, you’re right!! I recommend the Library Hotel if you’re looking to curl up with a good book. If you’re looking to curl up with something else, Dream Downtown is a great option

We stayed at the Dream for a long weekend. It's in a great location and very clean. Now here come the howevers..... Pretty pricey for the very small rooms. Also, we didn't really care for the bathrooms...no counterspace, it had a big mesh shower curtain (yuck), big ladder in bathroom to hang towels off of...we needed the space!! Also, very young crowd in lobby from about 9:00 on...with extremely loud music and dj (very clubby). This might appeal to some but certainly not all. We would not recommend for families at all. Not only were the rooms uber small, but the ambiance in the lobby was not really appropriate for children.

From the moment you walk in, to when you check out nothing is too much trouble for the team at the Dream Downtown. Very professional team, and it's a joy staying here. This is my second stay and I'll be definitely coming back again. Last time I stayed, complementary wireless was offered to all guests, which is no longer the case. This is a shame and I think it should come back, which is why a gave a 4 instead of a 5 rating.

This hotel is the perfect place to be exploring manhattan! Close to Highline, Chelsea Market, Meatpacking District with all its nice bars, restaurants and shops. But do not miss the Ph-D and the Electric Room inside the hotel - you will find a great atmosphere at these places.
Rooms are very stylish and comfortable.

Room Tip: View on Empire State Building is amazing
