Great Stay, would go again!

We had a fantastic time in NYC and the hotel was great, clean, and staff were friendly. The amenities weren't the best, it would have been nice to have free wifi though.

Don't let the name fool you!

Don't let the name fool you! It was anything but a "Dream" experience. The room I stayed in can best be described as being about the size, and offering the comfort level of Dan Aykroyd's room in the movie "The Blues Brothers"! Small, cramped and loud!

Good for a weekend getaway

I picked this hotel because the price was one of the cheapest for the area in Manhattan but I was pleasantly surprised. The staff is extremely nice and even though the room was smallish, it was clean, cute and more than enough for my 1 night stay. They have a rooftop bar that's fun for a few pre-evening drinks also. Overall it was a good value for the money since I booked only a day or two in advance. They said they were in the middle of upgrading currently but I would definitely stay there again

Not worth the price

$500 / night and tiny noisy room + still have to pay extra for wi-fi. That's not good deal at all.

Location not much else

The location is perfect for seeing the sights. The staff was nice. Don't expect a comfortable stay. The rooms are tiny. They gave us a full size bed and charged for anything bigger. At the prices they ask not much value. I was not expecting a large luxurious room but this was disappointing for the money we paid.

Great location!

The rooms are small but comfortable. The location is perfectly in the center of everything you'd want to do (central park, 5th avenue shopping, Times Square, Broadway shows). Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful.

Nice Weeekend

My girlfriend and I stayed at Dream for 3 nights and had a nice time. The outside of the building is being renovated so we had to come and go under scaffolding. Our room was about 10 feet x 10 feet - no exaggeration but we liked it. We ate at the bar once and had a few drinks on the roof, which were both nice. Nice décor, small and compact hotel.

No dream

Great location, near subway and in walking distance to good restaurants and central park! But be prepared to share the elevator with drunk, groping, awful people heading up to the roof top bar. Also, toilet not working in first room. Second room: the bathroom was not cleaned properly. Bed: mattresses are filled with feathers that poke you every time you move. Strange...
