Great hotel

Hotel was very clean and modern. Staff was very kind and helpful, letting us drop off our bags before check in and holding onto them after checkout until we were catching a bus. The room was clean, comfy modern. We had a queen size room which was perfect for one night stay. Location is excellent too- extremely close to times square and broadway. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it.

Very European experience

The rooms are comfortable. Aptly named Dream because at night the room is imbued with with a blue glow, beds are comfortable and reading lights are well designed. The room reminds one of a European Hotel, not huge but comfortable. It is well located, within walking distance of all Broadway theaters, shopping and a slew of restaurants. Only complaint, internet access costs you -- which many moderate price hotels are now offering for free.

Almost a perfect Dream

Very centrally-located with a boutique feel, and comfortable rooms, though some of the standard rooms could be a bit larger. Among the non-luxury hotels in the area, it is the best by far.

Cool atmsophere but could use a little improvement

It's a nice hotel with a good location. The staff could be a little more accomadating and the service in the bar could a be a lot better!! Plan lots of time for that drink!! The room seemed clean, except for the shower...it wasn't bad, but could have been a little better kept through the years. Might stay here again if it was $175 a night.

Loved the modern trend of this boutique hotel. The blue lights that illuminate the room were a great accent. Only complaint, no free Wi-Fi.

dream hotel

The hotel looked nice but it was pricey considering the mold in the bathroom wasn't Wat I expected for 300 a night . I like the decoration but not. The noise that comes from the club downstairs in the hotel ... Not to mention we had to wait extra because they had put our reservation for the day after when I had my reservation showing the right day n time . That was a no go !

Horrible

What a waste of money. There is no way that this is a 4 star hotel. The lobby is absolutely beautiful. The location is great. Those are the only good things I have to say about it. Whats wrong with this place? I have stayed at 3 star hotels that were better maintained. There is paint peeling in the bathroom and little bits of damage throughout the room. The room is absolutely tiny. I barely have room to set up the ironing board. The bathroom is ridiculously small. You cant even open the bathroom door all of the way. The shower door doesn't shut completely. How about service? The concierge is hidden behind a high desk. When I asked about the club attached to the hotel, I was told "not sure, I just know it is loud and I try to ignore it". Doorman? nope. I dragged my bags in and about when I was at the elevator, someone finally offered to help. elevators are absolutely tiny, fitting 6 people. being on the 13th floor, I had to wait a long time for them. I would never stay at this hotel again. I absolutely believe that this hotel is overrated, 3 stars at best, and an average 3 star hotel at that. Save the money and go somewhere else.

Not so dreamy

Location is great, but on check in was given a 2nd fl room next to the elevator, when asked to change was put in a room directly across the street from construction jackhammers 14 hrs a day, no other rooms available. Wonderful rooftop bar, just make sure you bring your own drinks, staff was scarce.
