    Exceptional 10.0
    Modern cool hotel in lively Chelsea, tons to do right outside the door. Simple check in with valet parking. Spotless funky decor, nice size rooms with super comfy clean bed. Totally soundproof. Exceptional room service meals served quickly and hot, priced reasonably. Very cool bars in the hotel, always something going on & easy to meet tons of new people. Incredibly friendly efficient staff, especially Christopher at the concierge desk. He went way above and beyond to help us with event tickets. Super cool, patient & kind guy. Zero compaints. Will definately return! We totally loved it!

    Below expectations
    There were just a a few things that surprised us about the room that didn’t make the rate worth it. Bed and bedding were uncomfortable, no trash bins in the room, trouble with lights and our key card rarely worked which was inconvenient. The bathroom door is not private at all (there is no door knob, only a whole). It’s not the worst but something you should be aware of...bathroom door is more like a glass shower door that swings. No bathroom fan. Hotel front desk text us to let us know the room was ready and ask if we needed anything. When we responded with a question we never got a response.

    You need to meet Christopher the concierge!
    We did a celebration for work with 16 people. We loved Christopher who is the concierge. He hooked us up with everything we needed. Truly spectacular individual!

    We’ve stayed here before. The hotel has changed and does not provide the same service level it used to. WiFi is also horrible. Location is excellent.

    Good 6.0
    Very average modern hotel in a great location
    I want to preface this review by saying that there's a good chance I'll stay here again because the location was fantastic and the rooms were clean, but other than that, everything about this stay was average. This hotel is the definition of hip and modern - my hotel room looked like a spaceship. The window was a circle, and there were buttons to do everything, and every inch of the bathroom was covered in tile. The room was very small but very high ceilings. The bed was extremely low and uncomfortable, and then the TV was quiet small and high on the wall. I was satisfied with my room on the 5th floor, however my boss stayed on a higher floor underneath the bar and he said it was noisy. I stayed there on a Tuesday and Wednesday night, and the lobby was filled with young women in tiny dresses. I'm a 30 year old woman who appreciates night life, however when travelling for work, I want to relax in a quiet environment. One of the three elevators wasn't working (from other reviews it looks like this is always the case), and another elevator was reserved for guests of the bar, so there's only one elevator for the hotel guests and an annoyingly long wait at 11pm when you just want to crash. That being said, although it wasn't a relaxing or cozy hotel, as I mentioned, it was very clean and the location was unbeatable, so I would likely stay here again. I just hope they get the elevator fixed!

    Fun hotel in great location- rooms not great.
    Hotel is great for socialization. Lots of great restaurants, bars and a pool. They’ve spent a lot of energy on the public facing areas so the rooms are not that nice. They were quite dirty in certain areas and not maintained as well as the other areas of the hotel. Overall, great location and a very fun hotel, but the rooms needed some refreshing.

    Dream Hotel? More like a Nightmare
    I travel to NYC often for work and I would not stay in the Dream Downtown hotel again. The hotel was in a great area and the rooms were large, but the hotel itself was more of a nightclub. Every night there were fights outside, people getting thrown out of the hotel by security, drunk obnoxious people being loud in the lobby etc. On the Saturday night of my stay the police/ambulance were called because of a fight, and the concierge quipped "just a typical Saturday". The check-in staff were incredibly rude and more interested in the party then the guests. The shower was one of the most poorly designed showers I have ever used.
