Dream Hotel's a Dream

I really enjoyed my stay at this wonderfully located NYC hotel. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. The room was quiet, comfortable and clean. The hotel is decorated in a way that makes the experience unique - it's not just another blah hotel.

Not a dream hotel

Location of Dream Hotel is great, very close to Columbus Circle and Central Park But rooms are tiny and the air conditioning, whilst working, sounds like a train roaring past in the room. On top of that, even if you don't put the air con on, every 30 minutes or so there is a massive roar through the room of some other machinery within the hotel, so it is impossible to get a decent nights sleep. Also, for the price you would expect free wifi but no, IF you can get it , its only free in the lobby and lots of times it didn't even work there

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.

great location

now the dream is in a very amazing area of the city you are close to everything by subway or by taxi. the room i had was very small but it was cozy and very stylish all white and modern with blue neon lights and space saving furniture the large screen tv was big enough to be impressive the bathroom was clean and very posh. I basically got my moneys worth because so close to the action and the price was decent i could have easily spent double the price for the same service elsewhere.

A well-named Dream

This is a sleek, cool deco-themed hotel close to anything you'd want to do in Midtown Manhattan. Just entering the lobby is an experience--dark wood, tiled ceilings, floor to ceiling aquarium, a quiet seating area toward the back, a street level restaurant and easy access to to a hip club. The signature color is a cool cobalt blue. The ads did not mention how sexy it is. Getting off the elevator on 4, I was met with a lovely photo mural of torsos and breasts, in the signature blue. I thought it was great, but perhaps startling to some. The room was small but well laid out--comfortable bed, cool white bedding, dark wood, writing desk, and blue indirect lighting at floor level. No need to set the mood, it's already there. A couple of quibbles: half the storage console was taken up with the minibar, half the other side with the safe (only 2 drawers). The closet was half-filled with 2 wonderful bathrobes. There was no wifi, only an ethernet type connection (I had only an iPod with me so was iMute). The bathroom had nice shelves and personal amenities, but the tub/shower was older but not cool old (e.g., clawfoot). The location is fantastic--cabs out front, subway and delis right at the corner. The major museums, TV studios, shopping, Broadway, Central Park, Tiffany's -- it's all an easy walk or cab ride away. I was so taken with grazing at my favorite deli that I didn't use the on-site restaurants. The menus were varied with a range of cuisines, reasonably priced for the area, and full room service available. To sum up, this is a great spot for a romantic weekend or quick business trip. I had theater tickets and museum passes for a couple of days before flying to Europe. For a longer stay, the small amount of storage could be a problem. I suggest calling to see if larger rooms have larger closets or more drawer space. A cool blue Dream overall.
