Dream DT lives up to its name as an experience!

Posted Sep 13, 2014
Pros: Location. Amazing Staff.
Cons: Maybe update the room a little bit. The finishing on the drawers looks old and the closets are solo small. I almost wished the whole wall was used.
Location: Awesome location. Great places to go have breakfast and walk around in.
It was my first trip to New York so I was very picky about the places I chose to spend my time in. I went for fashion week and I knew that the Meatpacking District was the trendiest area in terms of lifestyle and nightlife. I found the hotel online by complete accident and it completely surpassed m expectations. All my friends ended up booking in the same hotel as well and we loved it. PhD which is the in-house club was awesome! The pool was great, food selection in restaurants and room service was delicious and the staff made the experience 10x better with their friendly hospitality and welcoming demeanor. They took such good care of me and I would definitely see myself staying here again.

Not good for a sound sleep

Posted Sep 10, 2014
Pros: It is in the middle of Meatpacking District, very lively neighborhood. Very close to subway lines, easy to get to anywhere in the city.
Cons: Sound isolation!
I stayed on 11th floor and there was constant music base coming from PhD upstairs. I was there for a business trip so had to work long hours and could not rest at all. In addition to that, fire alarm went off on one night, around 3am and the announcement was not sufficient, I did not understand anything, no clear directions at all. The pool is a huge plus but since it is surrounded by tall structures around, not decent sunlight.

Trendy, cool, perfect spot and great service!

Posted Sep 9, 2014
This hotel had a super cool vibe and d├ęcor to match. The staff was amazing and when we did have an issue with our room, it was taken care of in an appropriate and timely manor. I would definitely stay here again when in New York. I wish there were more Dream hotels, I would definitely seek them out.

Perfectly located & very vibrant hotel

Posted Sep 9, 2014
The hotel was very lively and right in the midst of the meat packing district making the location perfect for bars and restaurants. Rooms were spacious and luxurious, one of the best nights sleeps I've ever had! The pool was fun with great dj's playing music day through to early evening. We did however have great difficulty in accessing any of the hotel bars within its facilities. The rooftop bar had queues out of the hotel doors and required a stamp to get into. The basement bar was the same which meant we couldn't access this bar at all during our stay. Often the hotel hires out the bars for private events so on two evenings we couldn't access either bar at all. Room service was great, and the staff were always very helpful and welcoming. Overall a great hotel and would definitely recommend to friends with the proviso of finding out what events are happening at the hotel at the time.

Great Hip hotel close to NYU

Posted Aug 31, 2014
I liked it a lot even though it was a little too hip for me. Top service. They aim to please. You can get a quiet room and you can enjoy the beautiful people in the lobby if you want and just go about your business if you don't. They learn your name and really do make you feel taken care of

Party scene

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Very crowded night club is part of hotel. Music blasting non stop 24-7 Not for a quiet couple visiting friends and family in NYC

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We do have a couple of night clubs on property that can affect a couple of our rooms. We are taking heavy measures of sound masking our rooms so that this does not affect our guests staying at the hotel. With that being said, we do have rooms that are not affected by our night club. Next time you come, please let us know so that we can make sure you are in a room that is on the quieter side. We hope you give us another shot so we can turn around this recent experience.

expected better

Posted Aug 8, 2014
check in was nice easy and quick but after that it went downhill. the waitresses by the pool were not very professional seemed as if ordering a drink or food was inconveniencing them, charged credit card without bringing a bill. the shower in bathroom had terrible water pressure and lastly when we checked out it took over 40 min to get a bell hop there to pick up bags, had to call 4 times. I'm disappointed cause I expected much better from the reviews I had read and heard about. maybe it was just a bad day for some

Just okay but pool is good

Posted Aug 4, 2014
Room was inconvenient, with slow light buttons that required learning and only one shower shelf that was wide enough to let soap fall through...this place tries too hard to be trendy and chic at the expense of practicality and ease of use. Too many mirrors, like a carnival fun house, in the room but without full light for makeup. Carpets and furnishings outside the rooms are worn and grubby. Pool area is very nice.
