What I liked:

"On a scale of 1-10, I'd give it a 10000000000 :) :)

My experience at this fabulous hotel could only be described as a "dream." From the exceptional service we received from the reservation desk, even finding us up by the bar when we couldn't be reached to notify us that our room was ready, to the attentive servers who accommodated our requests for chairs pool-side while keeping our drinks full, we could not have asked for a more pleasant experience. We enjoyed our room to the fullest extent, especially the modern decor and super soft bed. The semi-transparent showers offering a view of the silhouette inside was also a very nice touch! This hotel was certainly in a class of it's own, stylish, sexy, and with every amenity imaginable. I will certainly keep this hotel on the top of my list when considering another stay in Manhattan."

Hotel Description

If it’s not an outright contradiction in terms, we’d suggest that Dream Downtown — new though it is — is best seen as a piece of New York hotel history. It’s just around the corner from the Maritime, and its historic building shares both an architect and a porthole-scored seafaring motif. And though the notion of the Meatpacking District as nightlife mecca would have taken the first generation of boutique hoteliers quite by surprise, the Dream hotels (and their founder, Vikram Chatwal) are a continuation of a tradition that began a generation ago, right here in New York.

First things first. The rooms are modestly sized, this being New York, but not outrageously small — in fact for this town they’re fairly generous, and those big porthole windows tend to magnify the space. The look is clean and modern, with particular attention paid to the bathrooms, as is the current custom, and to such necessities as fine, sturdy beds and high-end electronics. Meanwhile the suites begin to positively spread out, with such luxuries as private hot tubs and full-size living rooms. Brothers in head-turning Franck and Leo Izquierdo helm the on-site IGK Salon, for that extra kick of celebrity magnetism.

Of course, in a hotel like Dream, the public spaces are at least half of the story. The pool, open year-round and complete with sandy beach, is adults-only after noon, going from sun deck to nightclub over the course of a day. There’s an outpost of London’s popular Bodega Negra for cocktails and contemporary Mexican, Cherry restaurant serves up Japanese food with a French accent, Melvin’s Juice Box keeps things casual with organic juices and smoothies alongside light grab-and-go snacks, and PH-D is a postgraduate-level course in rooftop-terrace revelry, with a stringent admission policy to match. Or for a genuinely public experience, hop on one of the hotel’s loaner bikes and take a ride along Hudson, where the last thing you need to worry about is dressing to impress.
