About Dream Downtown, New York

Ultra-cool hotel with a pool in the hip Meatpacking District

Chelsea, near the Hudson

The Dream Downtown is in the hip and lively Meatpacking District of cool Chelsea, on the Lower West Side of Manhattan, just to the north of West and Greenwich Villages and 2 blocks from the Hudson River and its waterside park. It's an hour from JFK International airport by cab.

High Line views

By day, chic boutiques and galleries compete with foodie Chelsea Market for your attention, or you could look down on it all from the elevated green walkway of the High Line, a block from the hotel. After dark, the district becomes Party Central for the in-crowd. Dance the night away at the onsite nightclub.

Outdoor pool, urban beach

The sand sunloungers of Dream Beach, the large glass-bottomed pool, and poolside bar, bring a Riviera touch to the city. PHD, the rooftop lounge, offers dazzling night-time views along with live DJs and cocktails, and there's a choice of dining, from sushi to modern Mexican. Breakfast is on offer for a surcharge. A hair salon is featured on-site for guests' convenience.

Porthole city views

Large porthole windows frame views of the city, while the 314 guestrooms are stylish and indulgent, offering safari chairs for relaxation and high-quality linens. WiFi, along with flat-screen LED TVs featuring wireless keyboards and laptop connectivity, provide the high-tech edge.

    Usually pretty good
    The hotel is usually very nice but this room wasn't as clean as others in the past. No robes, only two pillows, and the room look half put together. The whole hotel was incredibly noisy during St Patricks Day weekend. The staff was very friendly! The lobby and location are nice.

    night club on top floor
    They have a nightclub on the rooftop. So if you are a light sleeper, please let them know and they can arrange you to stay somewhere quiet. We got a room close to the nightclub and couldn't sleep. They were very nice and switched us to another room. So, you just need to let them know in advance that you want to be far away from the nightclub if you don't plan on staying out late or you are a light sleeper.

    Great bars, but other than that...
    Our room was in the second floor overlooked 16th street and we barely slept because of the noise, mostly a multitude of garbage trucks servicing the building across the street all night long and then the club letting out at 4am-ish. Everything was just a little bit broken: most of the buttons for the lights and then the white noise dial that is supposed to cancel out external noise. We took the stairwell one day and there was tons of garbage and it smelled like cigarettes.

    Modern Chelsea boutique hotel with noisy rooms
    Convenient location for work, but also close to subway lines and some tourist attractions. Room was clean but noise was a constant issue. We could hear vacuuming and talking in hallway, doors opening and closing, and the TV from the neighboring room. Mini fridge was stocked but no room for personal items. Elevator buttons were a challenge and often wouldn't register the first time around. Front desk staff was friendly and accommodating.

    Nice hotel
    Nice hotel near Chelsea Market. Comfortable bed. Excellent water pressure in the shower. Clean. It was a bit loud from street noise being on the 2nd floor. Plus, the door rattled anytime any other room was opened, and then would slam shut.
