Too small

Staff was friendly and polite. It's in a good location The rooms are very small - this can be tolerated What's hard to over come is the bathroom - no tub and absolutely no counter space!

The Dream Hotel

We Loved this place, the staff was very very helpful and the ambiance of the Hotel was very retro. The rooms were very cosy and clean..couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay.everything was in walking distance you only had to go an ave to Times Square. Lots of great shopping places to go through. This Hotel is right where you wanna be. Central Park is only 2 blocks away, lots to see and do. Take your comfortable shoes cause there's lots of walking. Love this place hope to come back again!!! Lots of night life in the Hotel too, if you come without the kids..LOL

Good but small.

The room was so tiny but that's what you get. The room was very clean and the staff was friendly. I was very happy to get the hotels Valet service. The bellhop dropped one of my bags and broke my souvineers though but the manager said shed replace the items and ship them to me since I was leaving that day onto my next adventure. Overall it was great. My suggestions is use the valet an the concierge for dining reservations.

family visit to NY

The Dream hotel is very pleasant - we had a 2 double bed room for 4 adults and could have been a bit bigger - however room was clean and comfortable. The location is perfect - near broadway, 5th avenue, Times square and subway station close by. lots of budget eating around the area and a couple of irish bars for a pint. Our only issue was that hotel arranged a car to the airport and advised that the cost would be the same as a taxi at 75$ - however the driver tried to charge us 95$ when we reached the airport. A row ensued which was not the perfect finish to an otherwise enjoyable trip

Perfect location for a New York theater vacation.

I loved Dream New York and will stay there again and recommend it to friends. It is a beautiful hotel with great staff and a wonderful rooftop bar. And amazingly quiet. Sweet dreams!

Great long weekend

Hotel has great value for a casual visitor to NYC. Great location and price. Rooms are a bit small but then again you don't spend a lot of time in the room. The only real complaint would be that the internet wireless service is as slow as I've ever seen, but again I was not in the room that much so no big deal. Roof top bar is great, staff is as friendly and helpful as any I've encountered. Would stay there again without question.

Great Time

Saw Rod Stewart in the outdoor cafe. I had a standard room. It was small, but more than enough room for the single traveller looking for value and a great midtown location. Saw Letterman taping a block away from the hotel. Times Sq, Central Park Rockefeller Ctr and more just 4-5 blocks away. Great breakfast at the Carnegie Deli around the corner. No soda ice and soda machine on the floor I was on. Overall Very satisfied.

Awesome location

Corner of Broadway and 55th St. Just steps to so many attractions (Letterman, MOMA, MOD, Central Park, Lincoln Center, theaters and great restaurants). Very fast elevators, free WiFi (lobby), loaner umbrella, and a very friendly staff made for a delightful stay. Small room typical of NYC, but central location more than made up for that. Talked to several repeat visitors and the attached Italian restaurant was raved about and great.

Room service prices were remarkably low. The attached Serafina restaurant was great so I would expect the food to have come from there. Small delivery charge but likely great food at ridiculous low cost.
