This place is so cool, chic and spotless. I live in Las Vegas, have stayed in plenty of top notch hotels and Dream Downtown is among the best. When I checked in Curtis M helped me with great advice on the area and even set me up w a vip card to check out the 3 awesome venues on property....

We stayed for 1 night and we got upgraded to a larger bed/room since they were available. The front desk even gave us each a free drink ticket for the restaurant next door, which was very cool. The service and location is awesome and we cannot wait to go back!!

I rarely write online reviews, but I was so impressed with my experience at Dream Downtown the weekend of December 3rd that I felt the need to write this. Throughout my entire stay, the Dream staff exceeded my expectations. As soon as I stepped out of my taxi, the bellhop said "Welcome to Dream Downtown, Mr. Lund, we've been expecting...

Stayed for 3 nights at the Dream because of business in NYC. First, two thumbs up on interior design and layout of the hotel - love the vibe and "modern cool hip" atmosphere of the place. The location is prime - located right next to Tao, Buddakan and Megu with Chelsea Market just a short stroll away (make sure to...

I book this hotel frequently for my boss when he travels to New York. The management is fantastic as is the rest of the staff. Very friendly and prompt attention to requests. Great location and accommodations. I have booked with both of their locations and the experience has always been highly positive.Strongly recommend!

Was sent to NYC for a night on a business trip to event at IAC Building. Pick Dream due to rate and location. Expectations were far exceeded. Decor is incredibly stylish and modern - makes you feel very "high-end", cool and comfortable. Amazing service from Lindsey G., don't have enough words to even describe her level of detail.

I've spent 7 glorious days with Dream Downtown as part of a long awaited holiday for me and the missus. A large part of this being one of the best breaks we've ever had was due to the Dream hotel.

This was my first time staying at a Dream hotel. Great location, very good food in their restaurants (though prices were a bit over the top, even for Chelsea), and professional staff.

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.
