Overview

Trendy hotel with expansive pool deck and outdoor pool
Property's trendy atmosphere is not ideal for families

Set between the trendy Meatpacking District and the stylish Chelsea neighborhood, Dream Downtown boasts luxury accommodations with lavish amenities. Every one of the 314 loft-style rooms comes equipped with a flat-screen TV, 350-thread-count Egyptian cotton linens and complimentary Wi-Fi access, making this property the perfect escape from New York City's buzzing city streets. But recent guests aren't only impressed with Dream Downtown's goose-down pillows; they're also smitten with the hotel's chic 5,000-square-foot pool deck that's surrounded by private cabanas. When you're ready for a quick bite or an afternoon cocktail, The Beach – Dream Downtown's St. Tropez-inspired poolside lounge – is at your service. Or if you're looking for a more substantial meal, check out Bodega Negra downstairs.

Design is no less important in the rooms, which are heavy on hyper-modern style (sleek white sofas, wall-mounted shelf desks, flat-screen LED TVs, chrome lamps) and have porthole windows -- many with killer views.

READ MORE 

When it first opened, this high-design hotel drew a lot of celebrities. Today, you're more likely to share the outdoor pool (complete with rentable cabanas), the party bar on the rooftop, and massive, state-of-the-art gym with corporate execs.
