We had a wonderful experience at the Dream hotel! From the time of check in, staff were friendly and helpful! The lobby was perfect and attracted so many people to just converse and take pictures. If there was a need from housekeeping, they were very responsive. I have not one complaint about this hotel and we cannot wait to come back when it warms up! The convenience of Phillipe Chow being downstairs and the rooftop lounge upstairs was wonderful because we didn’t even have to worry about going outside in the cold! Perfection! See you all in a few months!☺️

I made reservations to stay in a Platinum Suite at this hotel. This was one of the most horrible suites I've ever stayed in anywhere. I felt as though there was absolutely no quality check for this suite. In my opinion this room should have never been sold.
1. No glasses or Box tissues in the room (basic requirements)
2. One of 2 balcony doors broken (I was unable to utilize one of to balconies I paid for)
3. Worn out and shabby furniture (broken and ripped couch)
4. Nothing in the mini bar (empty fridge, once again basic necessity)

On top of all this I had to pay a $99.00 pet security, and obviously they were not using this for up keep or repairs.

The Hotel staff was friendly but, I was a little disappointed in the fact that even though I was staying at the hotel, I still had to pay $125.00 to rent a pool chair and still pay for food and drinks at the pool. There was also a $100 "minimum spend" at the rooftop bar.

I paid for a "suite experience" but received less than mediocracy, I will not be recommending this hotel to anyone without warning.

The Hotel is like a frat house, loud and uncomfortable. Staying on the fourth floor we were far from the action, however the music shook the walls until 1 am when we were finally able to fall asleep. Then they start vacuuming the halls at 9 am to walk up the guests that partied until 4 am. The actual hotel room is beautiful, however completely unfuctional. There is a hole in the bathroom door that looks directly onto the toilet, no washcloths, and a mental shower curtain we couldn't close. No iPhone 12/13 USB and a minibar with full size liquor bottles, however not one bottle of water. The experience was honestly exhausting.
On another note, the hotel posed a danger for guests, as I took the stairs out entire stay which was riddles with broken glasses, old food trays, cleaning equipment and dead roaches.

First and foremost my wife and I would like to Thank the G.M. at The Dream Hotel Mr. Raymond Wong. Mr. Wong and his amazing staff went above and beyond to welcome my wife and I at their beautiful hotel from Dec.30th-Jan.2nd. The hotel is spectacular from top to bottom: We stayed in a beautiful Silver King Balcony room overlooking 16th street and can't wait to go back in April of this year for the Phish shows ;) The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful, very clean/ spotless, the staff is very welcoming, very kind and always willing to help. You can't ask for a better location within the city, Chelsea is amazing!!! We will not stay anywhere else when we visit NYC , The Dream Hotel is the place to stay. Thank You to Dream Downtown for your hospitality, your professionalism and for just being YOU!!
P.S.= those shower heads in the rooms are amazing, was like standing in a waterfall!!! See Ya'll April 21st-24th

This hotel is beautiful, and we love the uptown location. But be warned: in the summer, their clubs are the priority.

At 11am, hotel guests are asked to leave the pool and get wristbands if they want to return, and then the lounge chairs are $150 a person on top of the room we were already paying for. If you don’t want to pay that, you have to sit on the concrete.

In addition, they are blasting music all day. They loved us to keep us from the rooftop club music, but that meant we could hear the pool music in our room all day. If you have to arrange your guests to try not to make them upset about the loud music, maybe just don’t have music that loud?

Finally, the rooms had no coffee or tea. Not even on request. They tell you to go purchase it at the lobby cafe.

It’s clear they are cutting corners to save money and their hotel guests are not important to them. The silly thing is: if they just made the pool for hotel guests only, they could fill their hotel and make the money they need without alienating the other guests.

We booked our room with only a 5 day notice because of last minute changes. Once we arrived the staff was wonderful and courteous and instructed us on the hotels amenities and policies. I had called in advance to order a bottle of champagne and balloons through concierge to surprise my husband for his birthday. Once we arrived the room was fully decorated in gold and white balloons, the bottle of champagne and a bottle of Prosecco from the Hotel Manager Felipe! The Dream Downtown is definitely by far the best hotel we have ever stayed ( and we’ve traveled to very nice hotels abroad). Everything in the room was well thought out, the decor was impeccable and the suite was very clean. Thank you to the whole Dream staff for making our short stay an unforgettable experience. We highly recommend anyone thinking of staying here for their future NYC trip. PS: make sure to visit the rooftop and lobby bar.. best cocktails!!!

We often travel to nyc and this was our first stay in this hotel. The location couldn’t be better for the HighLine, Whitney, the new City Island and ant other attractions in this area.
The staff was beyond helpful, friendly and even solicitous. Somehow they knew your name and greeted you with offers to help.
The concept of a beach club is totally unique for nyc with a beautifully designed outdoor garden pool, sumptuous chairs and great drinks/ food. Kudos to Morgan our server.
Yes the rooms are nyc small, but the brilliance of the design made them seem large and open. I would recommend a room overlooking the pool the very large round window makes it seem like you are open to the outdoors.

My only negative is that the furniture is not for older folks. Both the bed and chairs are so low that you need a young body to sit down and get up. The bathroom,although beautifully designed, has a tub/ shower that is very deep making access hard for some folks.
Having said this I would definitely stay here again. Note we stayed just post pandemic and not all services were yet available

A group of business associates and I stayed at Dream Hotel for 5-7 days for the UFC fight and launch of our tequila brand. We had an amazing time from start to finish. I particularly had to travel with 3 suitcases weighing 250 pounds, and as soon as I got to that prime location at Dream Downtown, Daniel Pérez (the manager) came out with the luggage cart to assist me. Super attentive, efficient, and with an easygoing and approachable smile, Daniel helped me get to my room quickly.

As all my business partners trickled in, Daniel smoothly and efficiently helped each of them get to their respective rooms too. The rooms were immaculate and cleaned every morning. The lobby had a good bar, TV, and alcohol selection; Chris, the bartender, was very friendly and gave generous pours (and gets a pass even though he’s a Brooklyn Nets fan. Go Lakers). And the rooftop at PhD was buzzing with electricity and beautiful people every night.

Daniel and the staff had the best recommendations for bars, food, restaurants, and everything else you can think of in NYC. Will definitely stay at Dream Downtown NYC again - this spot was 10 stars in every aspect! Thanks Daniel and everyone at Dream for an amazing time!
