Trendy Spot

The construction in the front of the building is an eye sore. The roof top bar is also closed, which is one of the reasons that I enjoy the Dream Hotel. There is no restroom in the lobby, so you have to use the restaurant next door. The staff was friendly. However, they seem to stand around. There were three people waiting by the front door, and we opened it for ourselves. The lobby has a trendy feel. There is an aquarium right when you enter the hotel. The room was small but very clean and comfortable. The staff called to ensure we had everything we needed. It is great for a quick night in the city. Overall, I had a good experience and believe that once the construction is completed this will be a nice place to stay.

First visit to NYC .

A good base to explore from, on a first visit to NYC . Friendly enough staff, when we found our way to the reception desk, hidden at the back of reception . Told us that we had been upgraded, but the queen bed room we had booked, as an upgrade was a British sized double bed . The so called upgrade was on the back so that it was nice and quiet but we didn't go to New York for quiet .Confused ! But staff were generally helpful, and on hand almost all of the time . It would have been nice to be shown to the lift, let alone the room . The bar was mentioned but we never made our way into it . On the whole a very good experience , and would like to stay there again !

Excellent Stay

You can't beat this for the price! The hotel is undergoing renovations, but the inside is gorgeous and the rooms are super chic. No view from our room, but we were venturing outside anyway! Great location too! Parking is down the street, (about a half a block) so just keep this in mind and be sure to get your parking ticket sticker. I definitely recommend this!

Bad experience

Guy at the front desk couldn't t find my reservation. It took him 15 mn and he was rude. He asked me for my credit card and did not want to accept my husband s cause he was not there although the reservation has been paid for. We had to ask 3 times to get the wifi code. Elevator was not working and it took forever to come. I had no shampoo in my room and had to ask for it 3 times. Service was really bad and did not worth the money I paid for.

Great hotel but very noisy area

The Dream Midtown was a wonderful hotel in terms of comfort and service. The front desk staff was endlessly accomodating and the room was super clean and comfortable. I downgraded them on the amenities because they do not offer ice machines or soda machines on the floors - meaning you have to call room service and pay $8 for a cold soda and a bucket of ice. That's inconvenient especially when room service ends at 11 p.m. The hotel also doesn't have a gift shop or business center. I was unable to print my boarding pass which made for fun times at the airport for my early flight. My only other complaint was that outside the hotel was extremely noisy all night - sirens, and a constant clanging sound which I think may have been two metal pipes banging into each other in the wind. I will definitely bring ear plugs on my next trip. I will be staying at the Dream Midtown again next week. The convenience and comfort make up for a lot of the other issues.
