A very nice hip hotel with a rooftop club and swimmingpool. Found the room a little to small but not a big problem, it was very clean and we had a nice vieuw on the city. The club is very good and busy. This may cause some more noise somehow, but nevertheles we enjoyed our stay.

So, on the surface I admit this hotel seems trendy for elites. Boy, was I wrong as this is the best hotel to stay in New York. The vibe in the hotel is cool and smooth. There are several outstanding restaurants within the hotel-as well as either 3 or 4 great clubs/lounges within the hotel also. I would say if...

We've stayed at the Dream Hotel several times over the past few months. We travel extensively and found the staff at the Dream to be incredibly friendly and accommodating. Special shout out to Jennifer at the front desk who helped us straighten out a reservation snafu (our fault!). Also Manny, Jorge, and Fernando could not have been more welcoming. Some...

Not overly impressed by the hotel. A little rough around the edges. So a few points. - you hear everything that goes on in the corridor from your room, all the doors slam and you hear it. - you have to be lucky to receive water on turndown. - sat in the lobby bar for over an hour without offer...

This hotel did not live up to our expectations. On the surface, it appears to be a cool, hip boutique style hotel with a fashionable vibe. Upon arrival we were impressed by the the artsy lobby and pool in the ceiling. Once we settled in to our room, however, it was all to clear that we'd booked a 3-star hotel....

PROS The staff is courteous and really nice. (Except for the girl in Guest Services who likes to slam the phone down without saying "goodbye" -- which must have seemed brisk and efficient on her end, but just seemed terribly rude on my end.) It's a nice hotel, but the lighting is terrible. The lights are operated with weird, hard-to-use...

First off, they have a pool – if you have ever visited NYC in late June, you appreciate that a lot – enough to give the place a 4-rating as they also have spacious suites.

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.
