    YES. To experience the essence of NYC nightlife one has to experience the Dream Downtown. It is always a parade! I don't mean that literally but figuratively it is colorful with interesting people and great energy. The rooms are modern with all of the amenities you expect from this caliber hotel. If you are looking for someplace that is in a great location, close to the 'Meatpacking District', Chelsea and the Village then this will suit you just fine.

    The Dream Hotel lives up to its name...a place that reflects a fantasy within the mind provocatively designed from the architecture to the interior. I haven't had the chance to check out one of their swank rooms yet, however their PH-D Rooftop Lounge is phenomenal. There are great scenic views of the Empire State Building, a beautiful crowd of people, and cocktails that pair well with the lounge atmosphere.

    Some of the best Christmas decorations in the city. It is the hot spot to go out at night but sometimes things get out of control.

    The hottest hotel bars right now are Phd and The Beach at the Dream Downtown. Not only is this the place to be for locals, it is a top choice for visitors to stay here. The hotel is very stylish, modern with grandiose ceilings and luxurious decor.

    The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and the concierge will go out of their way to make sure you are happy and comfortable.

    I was hesitant about checking out the Dream Downtown because I'm not a fan of the Dream at 57th. This hotel exceeded my expectations.

    The rooftop bar, PH-D, is fantastic. Great views, and perfect for the location. The rooms are okay in size (the queen bronze room is the smallest. If you can, you should definitely get a king at the very least), but are really well-appointed. I was pleasantly surprised at the attention to detail.

    The PH-D lounge up on the rooftop has one of the best views of the city. Definitely worth stopping by.

    Great atmosphere, great music, great views. An all around good party/place to schmooze.

    Amazing day brunch parties on weekends at PHD.

    Electric Room is cool

    If you like to party, this is the hotel for you! Especially in the summer! The pool area turns into a club. There's a dj, a vip section, cocktails passed around. It's a pretty fun place, but be prepared for it. If you like a quiet, calm stay this probably isn't the place for you.

    Hottest new spot in NYC. Food and beverage heavy... It will be loud but you are almost sure to see someone famous and the food and drink are beyond all expectations - 4 separate party venues means there's always something to do for everyone.

    The new Dream Downtown is the place to stay in the Meatpacking District. Entertainment is the central focus of this hotel. Forget the surrounding ho-hum nightclubs, the pool area is the focus of the social scene with beach club cabanas right outside. The people who run this part of the hotel are the kings of nightlife in New York and Vegas, making this pool one of the HOTTEST pools in the city!

    The Dream Downtown is a very good hotel. It is located in the heart of the Meatpacking district, has a lot of personality, a pretty good restaurant and a very fun club if you are looking for some late night entertainment. In addition, there are a few A+ restaurants within a few blocks so all of your culinary needs will be addressed. My only complaints are that the rooms are very small (they barely fit a desk) and the gym is missing some standard cardio and weight equipment. I am going to try out some other hotels in the Meatpacking district but I would rate the Dream Downtown highly and encourage others to try it out.

    This is an excellent hotel to stay at if you are in town looking for fun. Upstairs is a great rooftop night club called PhD and downstairs is a small exclusive rock and roll night club called the Electric Room. In early June, the famous Bungalow 8 reopened right next door to the Dream. In the main lobby is an excellent restaurant called Marble Lane that serves traditional american fare. Finally, the Dream has a pool with a pool bar. Not sure what else you could ask for from a Manhattan hotel.

    In a great neighborhood- right between Chelsea and the Meatpacking district. Also, walking distance to my personal favorite- the West Village. The rooms look very futuristic and aren't a bad size, especially considering it is NYC. Dream is super trendy with a lot of Kim Kardashian types waiting to get past the red ropes onto the roof which can be a little douchey. It was winter when I went but no doubt the pool scene goes off in the summer. Got a deal on TabletHotels.com for $199 a night- normal price being close to $500 which is WAY over priced. If you can get a deal go for it- great location!
