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.

    Fun Family week end
    Very cool hotel. Fun to people watch. A little too cold to use the pool area but the lobby was nice to hang out in. Close food options were a definite plus. Hotel was great in honoring our request to not have a room close to the clubs. Definitely request this if you don't plan to be out in the clubs as it will be noisy near them.
    Caroline, us3 night trip
    Dream Downtown, New York
    Sheets soiled. People smoking marijuana and smell reaching our room and was extremely strong. Only good thing about hotel is location.
