I always stay at The Dream to celebrate my Birthday. Each time I come back, I come back with expectations that are always met. I used to work in the Hotel Industry in NYC, and I now own my own Restaurant on the Chesapeake Bay in MD - so I tend to be quite picky. The standard rooms are your...

This hotel is the place to stay if you want to party all weekend or anytime... Not where you stay if you need to sleep and be alert for business meetings. I arrived on a Thursday and stayed through Tuesday. The first two nights I got no sleep because people were loud all down the hall. I ask to be...

This is a hotel that delivers half of what a typical guest would expect: 1. No television service whatsoever for my 2 night stay, which was due to an "outside service provider", and then the television wouldn't turn off while it was making weird noises so I unplugged it 2. Doorbells on guest rooms either do not work and/or have...

Room was extremely tiny, the bed is maybe 14" off the ground and there is really no other comfortable furniture in the room so you are stuck with the bed that you have to climb up and out of. The bathroom is huge, which is very nice. Very large shower stall. The staff was polite, no issues there. The room...

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.
