Is it a nightclub or a hotel

It was a nice place, but when you have trouble getting in because there's a line for the nightclub on the roof something's wrong.

Terrible Hotel

The staff was rude and they were very inflexible. The rooms are so tiny that it is scary and claustrophobic. The hotel is full of young children, I would never stay there again.

Birthday Trip

Fabulous hotel, very chic, wonderful bed. The only drawback is that the walls are thin and you can almost carry on a conversation with next door guests.

Perfect in almost every way

when I arrived at the hotel I had a grin from ear to ear that I could not for the life of me get off my face. I hit the pool first thing just to relax and have a couple drinks. I was giggling like a school girl as I called one friend after another to describe the amenities and decor. it was like a little piece of Miami or Vegas right in the city. enough bout that. the location couldn't have been better. right around the corner from meatpacking hotspots. the staff was excellent - polite, friendly, down to earth. One HUGE complaint...if you need to take a nap during the day, forget about it. For 3 hrs straight tried t get a nap in so I didn't fizzle at night but no such luck. Doors on my floor were slamming every 3 minutes...no exaggeration. Believe it was the cleaning staff going from room to room. the slamming sound was as loud as if it where my own door being slammed. The walls were paper thin. I could hear a conversation between two women in the very next room clear as a bell...no raised voices, just normal voices. I woke up the next morning about 930 to drilling (still under construction) and more door slamming. I opened my door and sure enough it was cleaning staff entering rooms and just letting the doors slam shut. Didn't mind the sound of vacuums or the drilling, but the door slamming must be fixed. I would stay there again, but will have to understand that a nap is out of the question.

Hotel was a some what dream

I stayed at the new Dream Hotel Downtown. I must say for the 6 weeks it has been open it was lovely. It is in a GREAT area the meat packing district and was young, fun and hip. The pool reminded me of a Miami pool which I loved and was very relaxing. The staff was on it at the pool area!! The rooms are small but great! I didn't love the shower (water pressure terrible) and the mechanics of the room still need to be worked out, but all in all you def want to stay at the DREAM Downtown for a nice getaway to NYC. Another aspect that I didn't love is that if you want to go to the lounge (and you are a hotel guest) you would have to wait in line. Which makes no sense-they should at least have a priority system going on for hotel guests at least if we are paying that much money you should be able to have some sort of jump of the line pass or priority over local customers who go to lounge. All in all, I LOVED this hotel and it is a must to stay there if you are in NYC or planning a fun little vaca to the city for 4 nights or so.
