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.

Dream Stay

I had a fabulous experience here, from beginning to end ...stayed 5 days, my room was always spotless. Roomy enough, with drawers and convenient closet - it was very chic, hip, and futuristic, while being completely serviceable. The staff couldn't have been more professional and accessible. Location is unbeatable - literally steps to Chelsea Market and the Highline ... found a charming bistro/cafe "Le Graninne Cafe" up 9th Street, and across the street heavenly cupcake's at "Billy's". I WILL be back!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Chelsea Market is across the street, as is entrance to the Highline. Excellent "New Yorky" neighborhood places to eat up 9th and 8th ... the Joyce Theater is two short blocks away...

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.

Fun hotel , fab design, no multilingual staff , very crowded

The Dream Downtown is a wonderful design fun hotel, NOT for families or kids. If you want a quiet stay don't stay here. The lobby is very crowded all the time (though the crowd are models and young good looking people) same as elevators, common areas. The front desk people are very nice but they don't speak another language that is not english, for my parents it was a NIGHTMARE to ask them anything, also room service people and house keeping only speak korean or english. Their restaurant Marble Lane is pretty good, also their Phd rooftop bar. Bronze rooms are soooooooo tiny , more tiny than in Paris , overpriced for what they offer. Silver rooms have a more decent size. Bath products are from ETRO, that a plus. Location is perfect between Chelsea and the Meatpacking. Overall it was a good stay because I like this type of hotels but my parents didnt like it as much.

Great hotel, but also loud party place too

Location was perfect right in between Chelsea & Meat Packing District. Room was great with (Gold Level) view of skyline, sink was more form over function and odd. Staff was nice and helpful though I could sense a few questions of the concierge made him not enjoy my presence. On the 9th floor could hear music late in the night probably from the club next door. Marble Lane was awesome!

Will stay here again...great time, wonderful location

Rooms are a little small, and didn't like having to use the room card key to also use the elevator....those cards are tempermental. Otherwise, loved everything else, for sure will stay there again. The most wonderful view of the city skyline from the roof top bar!

Great Location/Pool

Very cool hotel with great pool. The suites adjoining the pool are terrific. Only downside is the noise at night, even in the rooms and the fact that there are tons of drunk and messy people in the hotel at night.
