Dream Downtown

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Right in the heart of the buzzy Meatpacking District, filled with stylish eateries, of-the-moment clubs and upscale shopping
  • Manhattan's only sand beach and a club-like scene at the rooftop pool
  • A stay here means access to hard-to-get-into nightclub PH-D and rooftop lounge 
  • Marvel at the eye-popping decor including an exterior that resembles block of steel Swiss cheese and a glass bottom pool cantilevered over the lobby


The Dream Downtown hotel takes its heritage seriously. Paying homage to its seafaring past, the 12-story shimmering building is chock-full of porthole-shaped windows and smaller bubble-like holes. The striking façade is hard to miss from anywhere in the vicinity; it’s like seeing a giant shiny block of Swiss cheese.

Inside the emphasis on aquatic pursuits persists. A glass-bottom pool is suspended over the entrance, giving swimmers and lobby loungers one-of-a-kind views. An outdoor sand “beach” beckons guests to catch a few rays and dream of islands less populated than Manhattan.

Rooms are on the small side, even the suites. An upgrade to a pricier room will get you a balcony thats larger than the rooms themselves. The design makes the most of the petite spaces, with illuminated orbs that dangle from the ceiling and silvery seaweed-like curtains swaying against a wall. Whites and pale grays envelope the walls and bedding, with fur-covered ottomans popping out against the muted backdrop.

Families traveling with kids should probably pass up a stay at this hotel, where young scenesters flock to the exclusive rooftop lounge, to hear DJs spin pulsating beats into the wee hours.
