Just around the corner from the Maritime Museum, Dream Downtown offers a bundle of eclectic boutique charms, right in the middle of New York’s Meatpacking District. Flooded with natural light from oversized porthole windows, loft-inspired guestrooms feature a wealth of individualized delights including balconies, a private outdoor hot tub or direct access to the hip poolside deck and beach bar. Complete with a sandy “beach," a 50-foot glass bottom pool shines above the vast lobby lounge. Head on up and enjoy a poolside massage or spa treatment in one of the cabanas.

Highlights

Dream guests will find a myriad of downtown attractions right outside their door, from the unique galleries and cafés of Chelsea, to SoHo’s edgy boutiques and bars. Hop on a loaner bike and cycle along the Hudson, pick up a picnic at Union Square or take in a show at Madison Square Garden. Guests can sample luscious local eateries like Tao Downtown and Buddakan, or stay right in Dream after dark, to experience some of the city’s hottest restaurants and lounges. Savor upscale Mexican tapas at hacienda-inspired Bodega Negra, descend into the sultry crimson spaces of Japanese/French fusion eatery Cherry, head to the ultimate penthouse party at PH-D, or dance the night away at the subterranean Electric Room.

Perfect place for a girls getaway

The Dream hotel set out to make our dreams come true and they succeeded. We were 6 girls who could not wait to get away from the daily grind and celebrate our best friend's wedding engagement. The concierge team at Dream reached out to us and went above and beyond to make sure that our bachelorette was treated like royalty. We stayed in one of the platinum suites. The room was so modern and chic! We loved the decor of the room. The only small downside was that we couldn't figure out how to work the music on the TV and there was not an iPod dock. However, they quickly responded with providing an auxiliary cable but we did not get to use since we were mostly out and about. They were able to accommodate just about everything that we requested including a pull out sofa bed, complimentary champagne, special delivery of refrigerator, and also helped to receive and deliver a surprise cake that we ordered. Best part was the LOCATION. We were perfectly located in walking distance of shopping, cafes, coffee, restaurants, bars, clubs, convenience stores, and could not have asked for anything better. There was also a club and restaurant in the hotel itself. Overall, it was a fun and lively atmosphere. For our commute, the subway on 14th was just a few steps away making it so convenient to get to and from JFK even though JFK is far, it was so incredibly easy to figure out how to get to the hotel. Totally not worth taking a cab since it took the same amount of time. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it to anyone thinking of checking out meatpacking district for good eats and parties.

Chic Hotel

It will remind you much of the Gansevoort. Contemporary, trendy, stylish. The rooms were very comfortable. The Lobby/Marble Room area is fantastic. PhD has a great view of the city, but very pricey drinks with an uninspiring dj that caters to the decadent, meatpacking type. Great hotel, but avoid the rooftop.
