I've stayed at the Dream a few times now and I have yet to be disappointed as my expectations get higher and higher. We are always interested in stopping by PHD, Bodega, and the electric room so it makes it very convenient. The staff has always been top notch and offers a very personable experience. They seem very genuine. The...

Stayed here for 3 nights with a group of people (shared a room with my brother). The hotel is not bad - the entrance is quite nice, the lobby has some nice details (an American flag made out of beer cans, you can see the bottom of the swimming pool as it is made of glass. However as there is...

This was the most expensive hotel on our trip and the worst. It is more like a giant nightclub for 20 to 30 year olds. Our room was on the 9th floor, the nightclub on the 10th. Until 3am every night we had to hear "douff douff" music.Add to that the bar and foyer was constantly crowded with club goers...

I always have a great experience when I stay at the Dream properties. Whether it's the room itself, the on site restaurant or phD and the pool, I'm never disappointed. The GM, Daniel, provided excellent service and made me feel welcomed upon check in. I would highly recommend this spot or their hotel in midtown to anyone!

I had stayed in this hotel once before as it was convenient for my visit. I enjoyed this stay as it was quiet and the room comfortable. A croissant and a coffee in the cafe was all I needed in the morning and it was well worth it. On our final day, my wife was not feeling particularly good and...

A very expensive hotel, for no reason. While the location in Chelsea is fine, the experience in the hotel is nothing special. At the same time, rooms are very small and not comfortable and the in-room design is basic. It is very noisy at evening time and while you are at the party scene, sleeping at the party is not...

The hotel is nicely located near the High Line park and the Chelsea market. There are some nice perks if you book on line at the hotel web site. But I was upgraded to a room (1103) which is too close to the load speakers from the club. At 11:00 pm the base made my bed vibrate. As it turns...

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
