I had mixed feelings about this super-trendy hotel. The design is definitely cool - with round Windows In the rooms and chain-mail shower curtains. The beds are insanely comfortable. And they have an outdoor pool - a rarity in NY. But in a lot of ways, it felt a little heavy on style and light on substance. One of the elevators required a fist punch to get your floor to light up. The push button light switches in the bedrooms were hard to work and often seemed cross wired. The blackout curtains didn't really black out the light. The location is amazing, but the lack of attention to detail, given the prices, left me feeling a bit underwhelmed.

Nice trendy hotel in a great location downtown with a small swimming pool on the 2nd floor. The rooms are small but nice with super comfortable beds. Great architecture design. Beautiful view over the city from the rooftop bar.

Great location in Meatpacking district and across the road from Chelsea Markets and the High Line. Great vibe in the hotel, day or night! Bodega Negra is a real fun spot for dinner and the rooftop bar, PhD, kicks into gear at 23:30. Expect very young trendy types.

The Dream Downtown is just that, a retro-futurist's "dream". The aesthetic of it's wide open lobby is the perfect combination of a rustic hardwood motif with an unintentional 50's sci-fi flair. What really sets this place apart however is the pool on the second floor, whose glass bottom makes the ceiling of the main lobby/bar, giving visitors a unique perspective on things through porthole like windows above. Definitely something to be aware of when using this particular amenity. The staff is friendly and helpful in finding your way around town in addition to the two concierges. Dream Downtown boasts its own art gallery, live music, multiple restaurants and lounges, and a modern artistic atmosphere which makes the Dream hotel a trendy and modern choice for the hip traveler. They definitely tweak the model of a hotel and seek to create a social scene within its walls. If you are looking for a slice of NYC nightlife without leaving the building while still being close to some of the trendiest Meat Packing district locations outside, this place is for you.

YES. To experience the essence of NYC nightlife one has to experience the Dream Downtown. It is always a parade! I don't mean that literally but figuratively it is colorful with interesting people and great energy. The rooms are modern with all of the amenities you expect from this caliber hotel. If you are looking for someplace that is in a great location, close to the 'Meatpacking District', Chelsea and the Village then this will suit you just fine.

I was hesitant about checking out the Dream Downtown because I'm not a fan of the Dream at 57th. This hotel exceeded my expectations.

The rooftop bar, PH-D, is fantastic. Great views, and perfect for the location. The rooms are okay in size (the queen bronze room is the smallest. If you can, you should definitely get a king at the very least), but are really well-appointed. I was pleasantly surprised at the attention to detail.

The PH-D lounge up on the rooftop has one of the best views of the city. Definitely worth stopping by.

The Dream Hotel lives up to its name...a place that reflects a fantasy within the mind provocatively designed from the architecture to the interior. I haven't had the chance to check out one of their swank rooms yet, however their PH-D Rooftop Lounge is phenomenal. There are great scenic views of the Empire State Building, a beautiful crowd of people, and cocktails that pair well with the lounge atmosphere.

Smallest rooms ever, but seems to be the place to be for New Yorkers to hang out at.

If you like to party, this is the hotel for you! Especially in the summer! The pool area turns into a club. There's a dj, a vip section, cocktails passed around. It's a pretty fun place, but be prepared for it. If you like a quiet, calm stay this probably isn't the place for you.

Some of the best Christmas decorations in the city. It is the hot spot to go out at night but sometimes things get out of control.

This is an excellent hotel to stay at if you are in town looking for fun. Upstairs is a great rooftop night club called PhD and downstairs is a small exclusive rock and roll night club called the Electric Room. In early June, the famous Bungalow 8 reopened right next door to the Dream. In the main lobby is an excellent restaurant called Marble Lane that serves traditional american fare. Finally, the Dream has a pool with a pool bar. Not sure what else you could ask for from a Manhattan hotel.
