A stylish hotel in downtown Manhattan with a chic outdoor pool and spa cabanas, loft-style guest rooms and incredible after-dark offerings

When you're staying in the Big Apple, you'll want to be right in the core of the action. That's where Dream Downtown puts you. Stylish Lower Manhattan is the perfect place to stay in NYC, holding the Meatpacking District’s boutiques, the High Line, the original Magnolia Bakery, bohemian Greenwich Village, the new Whitney location and the Hudson River. Based at this boutique luxury hotel, all of the above is within a leisurely five- to 15-minute stroll.

But if you've come seeking luxe sunbathing, high-end dining and nightlife, you won't have to stroll anywhere to find what you're looking for. That’s because this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winner takes its service and after-dark offerings seriously, featuring an outdoor pool with heated glass bottom, a plush Beijing-inspired restaurant, a Mexican bodega that somehow weaves in references to the Tudor dynasty, a bar that brings together England’s Gothic period and 1980s and one of Manhattan’s most exclusive rooftop terraces. A dream of a stay, indeed.

Good to know

City Sightseeing Shopping Hotel


Dream rooms are, well, exactly that. They’re among the most surreal and design-forward abodes you’ll find anywhere in the city, with Turkish rugs, bold artworks and metallic or pearlescent fixtures. With views of the Manhattan skyline and the Dream’s year-round pool, you can be a part of it all, even from the comfort of your own room.

Bronze Queen rooms provide 20 square metres, a queen-sized bed and city views and Bronze King rooms give you 24 square metres and a lovely king-sized bed. Silver King rooms allow for 30 square metres and two full beds.

The property's two spectacular eateries are sure to satisfy your inner foodie – the first an upscale Mexican-style restaurant, Bodega Negra, and the second an upscale Chinese restaurant recalling Beijing at its finest. After dinner, make sure to stop by the hotel's bars – The Electric Room transports you to London in the 1970s and ‘80s and serves you drinks by luxury-hotel golden boy Johnny Swet, while PHD Rooftop pairs great drinks with famously epic views and a killer vibe.


You can't beat a pool in the pulsing heart of Manhattan, and one with a heated glass bottom is even more flash. Stake your patch of the 460-square-metre pool deck on a luxe chaise longue, grab a refresher from the bar and perhaps book yourself in for a massage or treatment in one of the two private poolside cabanas.


Set in the heart of Manhattan's artistic Chelsea neighbourhood and offering unparalleled views, the hotel is just steps from many highlights of New York’s cultural scene. There’s a host of local galleries and museums, including the Gagosian and the Whitney, and the beloved High Line is within walking distance. Chelsea Market, with its bustling bake shops and restaurants, is also a short stroll away.

Of course, New York City’s extensive public transit and taxi systems mean that all of the city's iconic sights, from Times Square to the Empire State Building to majestic Central Park, are within reach.
