Funky Hotel in Great Location
Posted Nov 8, 2015 on Expedia
This is very funky hotel in an awesome location. It's described as boutique but is still sizeable which means you have the benefit of being full service/well staffed while still not feeling like you're staying at a major chain. The location in my view is unbeatable if you are not a first time visitor to New York and prefer the more chilled downtown Manhattan which in parts has a nice village vibe to it vs. the hustle and bustle of Time Square. Having said that it is not far from mid-town but perhaps not the perfect location for a first timer who wants to do Times Square, Central Park etc. although one could argue you are getting the best of both worlds with this location but that would be something to consider depending on your interests.
The hotel is situated in the midst of great eateries, Chelsea Market, the High Line Park, West Village, handy to the subway so I really can't fault it for location and vibe. Staff were always friendly, approachable and attentive although sometimes a little quick to respond rather than taking a moment to listen and understand the issue/request so we did at times have the wrong person turn up to resolve something as a consequence of staff not taking time listen and understand the issue - however they were always quick to send through the correct person to resolve it.
All in all, I'd highly recommend Dream Downtown for a stay in NY, I'd definitely stay again.
