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.

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.
