This is a great spot in Manhattan. From the concierge, the staff, the cool lobby, pool and club, you have everything you need in one spot. It has a great nightlife and everyone is always very professional and friendly. The rooms are clean and modern, and there is so much to do in the area (if you need to leave!)....

I love Dream Downtown, it is a great party hotel, great destination especially if you want to enjoy the nights. Hey Christopher Scali and Joseph Sabatelli, thank you so much for making my stay so fun:) I would recommend to talk to Chris before going to New York, he will handle the toughest reservations even with short notice.

This is a very classy, modern hotel. The staff, from the front desk to the concierge to the staff bringing us ice almost instantly to the valet parking. Everyone was exceptional. The room was very clean and unique and ours overlooked the pool. We will return! Great restaurants and nightlife right on site as well.

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.
