The Dream Downtown is a futuristic-looking hotel that is easily one of the hippest joints in the area. An edgier layout showcasing an industrial-meets-luxury design is perfect for the trend-conscious travel and partiers.

In conjunction with the Maritime Hotel, Dream Downtown blends public spaces together in a unique way. The modern style plays on the building’s history as a maritime operations center and provides guest with a bohemian, eclectic feel featuring velvet chairs, button ottomans and sofas, cowhide benches, and funky orb lighting.

The 316 rooms of the Dream Downton hotel, classified into Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum categories, did not have a renovation. They have a hyper-modern style with automated systems, sleek white sofas, wall-mounted shelf desks, chrome lamps, minibars, flat screen TVs, and porthole windows with a great city-view. In addition to traditional bathroom amenities, and dental kits with Q-tips, cotton balls, and mouthwash.

The Dream Downtown hotel is in a commuter-friendly location between Manhattan's stylish Meatpacking District and Chelsea neighborhoods. It is away from the hustle and bustle of Midtown and near a wide variety of attractions including Chelsea Market, High Line, Whitney Museum of American Art, Atlantic Theater Company, Chelsea Piers, Hudson River Park, and Madison Square Gardens, and Union Square. A decent amount of shops, restaurants, art galleries, theaters, and cafes are also nearby.

Amenities on site at Dream Downtown are a rooftop lounge, underground club, two restaurants, 24-hour fitness center, a posh salon, and a 5,000 square-foot pool area. The pool area known as "The Beach" brings a taste of the tropics to the concrete jungle. Dream Downtown’s trendy rooftop club, PHD, offers breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline, while the rock-music club, The Electric Room, has cocktails and cool British-pub décor.

The Dream Downtown hotel offers various dining and nightlife space that can be enjoyed by all or booked for private events. Whether at the pool deck, basement bar and club, rooftop lounge, or sleek restaurant, party-goers will have plenty of activities to keep them busy day and night.

7.1 Good
Pros:The price and location were great, though the deal we found clearly isn't their usual rate. I would never pay full price for a hotel like this.
Cons:The decor is clever, but makes it an incredibly uncomfortable room. Super echo-ey due to the cement, glass & metal design. The lighting is ridiculous to deal with, and half the lights seemed to be burned out. Simple on/off switches would be better than whatever they thought they were installing. Also - I really need to learn to research clubs. Because I never need to stay in a hotel that includes a night club for the rest of my life. Really should be front and center in the descriptions, since some of us don't want to spend every interaction with the elevators and lobbies dealing with an obnoxious club-going crowd that goes on well past 4am. This is a hotel for bored 20-somethings with a lot of money to waste. If you're just looking for somewhere decent to stay in the Chelsea area where you can get a good night's rest... maybe look elsewhere.
6.0 Okay
Pros:Good location, restaurant, bar, and pool were all lovely. Well-kept hotel.
Cons:Rooms are tiny, and the staff was very inattentive. I asked three times (including reaching out once before my stay) about booking an activity and each time the concierge or staff told me someone would get back to me. Each time, no one ever got back to me. Finally we ended up missing out on the activity we wanted to do because of the staff's lack of attention.
6.0 Okay
Pros:Location was good.
Cons:We got to the pool at 10am and put our names down to be told it was a 3 hour wait.
8.2 Great
Pros:The staff was AMAZING so cooperative and helpful with any little request!!! A+
Cons:The rooms are small and when you book you have to be very careful if want two double beds, the wording makes you think you are getting two beds and its is one. Three of our group independently made that same mistake.
5.4 Passable
Pros:It was convenient to where I was working and thew staff was awesome.
Cons:The room was dirty, uncomfortable, and just not worth the rate. I wouldn't stay there again.
5.4 Passable
Pros:Great location, lobby decor is very cool and onpoint. The rooms, though small, were very well done and loved the huge shower.
Cons:Service was just awful. First day shower curtain filthy, sink didn't drain. Second day, shower curtain fixed, sink still not working. Third day, room never made up Fourth day, asked for ice (there are no ice machines at all), never arrived. Constant - the hallways always smell like food, because the facility is so well insulated that any room service smells will linger forever, and yes it really does. Forget about sleeping. There's a DJ that spins until 4am. My room was on the 10th floor. You could hear it reverberating through the courtyard. There was not much to do about that. Only two elevators for the rooms - so you'll wait for a while to go up or down. Oddly too, you need to use your key in the elevators in *both* directions, and the key swipe hardly worked. The weekends were a joke. Bar/Bat Mitzvah's, parites, the rooftop bar.is a huge draw and all kinds of trendy beautiful people. But that meant that the elevators were packed with party goers, drinks spilled, lots of ruckus that the scene brings with it. Hey it 's fun once in a while but at Dream Hotel it never stopped. Will not stay there again. I hope you know what you're getting in to when booking there.
7.0 Good
Pros:Nice staff and chill lobby.
Cons:Very small rooms and a soft bed.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Great ambience. Great staff. Great food. Great location.
9.0 Excellent
Pros:Room was great. Juice Bar in the lobby was awesome. PH Bar is the best view in the city. Swimming pool. Ambiance.
Cons:My bathroom sink was plugged up. Houskeeping doesn't seem to be perceptive or ready to take action when they see something like this or I would not have encountered it. Also, I needed to print a boarding pass and their solution was for me to email them instead of having a computer where I could print my boarding pass. I was annoyed by that.
7.0 Good
Pros:The room was quirky and modern
Cons:It was underneath a nightclub and so all night the music thumped through the ceiling.
