Pre-Christmas week-end

Everything was great. We began with a problem wherein my daughter's flight was going to arrive late and we would miss the Radio City Spectacular. SHE had the tickets. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and help us solve our problem and everything worked out well. It made the start go well and it only continued from there.

Not a great Dream

Room value was less than spectacular. King room upgrade got a tiny box of a space..yes, I know its NYC, but still a claustrophobic and tiny room from what Im familiar with there. Bathroom needed serious work...peeling grout, moldy in places, scuffed tiles and a 70's faucet set in shower. The room itself was truly uncomfortable at almost all times...all the windows had some fierce air leaks (especially in the bathroom, which lacked a separate heating vent...brrr), but putting the heat on in that tiny box resulted in a freeze/swelter cycle that left us both sweaty and unrested in the morning. The beds were spongy soft, uncomfortable for me, and when firmer pillows were requested, we received the exact same set, although we were assured these would be "very firm". The room lacked basic creature comforts like a mini- fridge or coffee maker, or even adequate storage space for a 4 night stay for 2 people in winter. Other than the location, I found that Dream was quite the disappointment, and we have noted this one as a "never-again".

Good value in NYC

Had really good experience with this hotel...hotel staffs are polite and helpful ...they even let me do early check-in at 12pm (suggest to call ahead in the same morning to check avail), location is great (1 min walk to subway station, 5 mins walk to time Sq), noise level is acceptable (Some noise but not bad in the morning from some construction activities), room is very clean and surprisingly roomy for nyc standard (compare to my last visit stayed at another 4 stars hotel; suggest to pick the the room w/ king-size), price is very reasonable considering the location and overall value (low $200 incl T&S). I would stay there again for my next visit. The room does not have complimentary wifi which is not great but it's a minute walk to starbucks where you can get your coffee and check your email... Not giving a 5 stars because of no complimentary wifi.

Dream

My experience was very bad here from start to finish. First of when i checked in the host was not social at all. When i got to my room it was tiny including the bathroom. Carpet was dusty, the do not disturb button did not work and i was woken up each morning by the maid. when the maids were cleaning in the room next to me it was very loud and could hear everything. The water pressure was terrible in the sink and shower. Would never stay here again, the pictures on the website are veru deceiving

Location!!!!

Location couldn't have been better. We walked everywhere. The bed was comfortable and room was clean. The housekeeping staff was very efficient and a pleasure to speak with. The common areas on the upper floors could stand a little refreshing (new carpeting, paint). But other than that this hotel was a good value for New York City.
