The Dream Downtown was - to be cheesy - a dream to stay at for my staycation. The Dream aesthetics are beautiful to look at; the building itself is one of the most unique in town and worthy of an Instagram. Upon arrival, the front desk was the most helpful and welcoming. I forget the names of who I interacted...

This hotel is has something for everyone. It's in one of the most exciting areas of NYC. The restaurants are delicious. Hotel staff is endlessly helpful and accommodative. During the warmer months, the pool and pool bar is the hottest place in town. In the winter, the lobby bar is a great place to connect with people or make new...

I recently stayed at this hotel, and unfortunately my experience was ruined by the lack of care on their part. I paid extra for a better room than the basic. The receptionist told me he will give me a really nice room and it really was nice (looking out to the Empire State Building) on the 11th floor. What he...

This is a beautiful hotel in a wonderful location opposite Chelsea markets. The only downside to this hotel is the noise all night from the night club a few meters away. The Base thumping kept our whole family of 4 awake every night of our stay. When we complained to reception they were very thoughtful & apologetic and delivered a...

I had a terrible experience at the Dream Downtown. I'm a new mother traveling for work. I asked if I could store baby milk in their freezer and they said no problem. At the end of the trip they handed my a bag of rotten milk. They told me I was lucky that they let me use their freezer at...

Booked three rooms with my family. Found the first room to be too small and was immediately changed into a wonderful, much larger room by an excellent team on the front desk (Curtis and Lindsay). We also asked for a large bed for our eldest daughter who is expecting a baby and were again met by considerate service. In general,...

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.
