Good check in experience, let the hotel know our arrival time prior to arrival, and was ideal having our room ready and waiting for us before 3pm. Makes things a lot easier when you are only in the city for a few days. Rooms are super clean, and provided with good amenities. Staff are extremely helpful and friendly, nothing is...

The first thing you notice about the hotel is pretty obvious, it stands out from a couple of blocks away, at a glance it actually makes you wonder what type of building it is, a museum, a tech building, a modern office, an art gallery or maybe a Nasa space lab. My stay was very pleasant, I can't say I...

The Dream Downtown is truly a dream to visit. We were there to celebrate my brother's 30th birthday. The staff from the bellmen to room service, front desk and everyone in between was fantastic! The rooms are stylish, comfortable and sexy! Dream is an experience not just a hotel!

Fantastic neighborhood for a visit to New York. Good restaurants in the area and you must try Chelsea Market. Nice rooms, nice bar and friendly staff. Nice cafe for breakfast. Trendy rooftop club, but you should go somewhere else. But I recommend the mexican restaurant at the hotel - Bodega Negra! Very good!

My stay at the Dream was awesome! I absolutely love this hotel! It's a little city within the city. Everything was right at your finger tips. We had dinner at Bodega Negra which is right downstairs, drinks at Tao, literally next door and capped the night off PHD rooftop lounge. The rooms were a pretty decent size for new york...

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.
