Why Stay Here?

Are we in the future or are we in Chelsea? It’s hard to tell in the uber modern Dream Downtown, located directly behind the Maritime Hotel on the border of the Meatpacking District and Chelsea. The pool’s glass floor looks down into the lobby. There’s a 24-hour gym, a hair salon, a rotating art exhibition space, a fusion restaurant and a rooftop lounge where you can dance the night away, before collapsing into 350-thread-count Egyptian cotton linens.

While all Dream Hotels are drop-dead gorgeous, Dream Downtown is a show-stopper. A bombshell. A knockout. A perfect 10. Our competition gets left in the dust every time and our (temporary) inhabitants live like they’ve only imagined they could… until now.

By crafting a lively, creative and inspiring environment that is as welcoming and all-inclusive as it is beautiful, we pave the way for an experience that is exclusively yours – well, yours and the alter ego you play host to by night.

Integral to this discovery of your other self is the New York City everyone knows. Just outside our doors lies downtown New York, Chelsea Market, The High Line and The West Village. But we’ve also designed our hotel itself to be just as worthy of your exploratory spirit. Start up top at PH-D Rooftop Lounge. It’s the ultimate penthouse party, something every NYC visitor and local should experience at least once. By contrast, vintage guitars, bright serapes and a wall of tequila barrels fill Bodega Negra restaurant with so much south-of-the-border atmosphere, you might even forget you’re in New York City. Same goes for the Electric Room, an intimate subterranean speakeasy with a “Cool Britannia” influence. Finally, come full circle with a day at The Beach – the ideal summertime escape. With a real sand beach, glass-bottom pool, full-service bar, and a DJ booth, all ringed by 70 Cote D’Azur-inspired chaise lounges, Dream brings Manhattan the kind of cool that really matters.


When it’s time to head up to your room or suite, prepare to be impressed. Our rooms come standard with the upscale amenities you’ve always wanted but were never quite able to put into words. Plus, many also have exceptional views of the Manhattan skyline or our one-of-a-kind ultra-chic pool. In an atmosphere where authentic nautical vibes meet the roaring urban jungle that is NYC, a stay at Dream Meatpacking District is always a win.

Hyper-connected, dialed-in and utterly discreet. Tickets to a sold-out show, a pass under the velvet rope or an impossible reservation at whatever restaurant’s hottest right now. All standard stuff. What we really like is a challenge so hit us with anything and don’t be afraid to get weird. You ask. We deliver. Just between us.


Surf the web on us in all social areas, including the lobby, bars and restaurants. You can even log on while lounging by the pool.


Here’s something you don’t see every day (unless you’re working our front desk). Our glass-bottom pool floats directly above the lobby, offering one-of-a-kind views for both swimmers and arriving guests.


We know, we could’ve stopped at the trippy glass-bottom pool, but we couldn’t help it. Throw in one sand beach (the only in Manhattan), scatter 70 Cote D’Azur-inspired chaise lounges and two private cabanas around the pool, add one full-service bar and DJ booth and it all adds up to zero regrets. To complete the indulgent beach club vibe, guests can book massages or spa treatments in one of the cabanas.


Ultimately, it’s our dream that while staying here and playing here, you’ll enjoy this new side of yourself enough to take it with you when you inevitably return home.

From the enormous disco ball plated with 10,000 pennies hanging over the dining room to the wall of antique tequila barrels, Bodega Negra is as much a feast for the eyes as it is the palate. Amidst the cozy, intimate, moodily-lit “Tudor Hacienda” décor, Chef Michael Armstrong’s upscale Mexican menu is designed for sharing with small plates such as fresh ceviches, tacos and salads, as well as more generously proportioned dishes like Roasted Chile Rellano, Lamb Barbacoa Tacos and Carne Asade. Dishes are complemented by a selection of handcrafted mezcal and tequila cocktails. And be sure to leave room for dessert. If any one choice sums up the Bodega Negra experience it’s the Don Huevo – a molten chocolate cake encased in a white chocolate sphere that deflates when hot caramel is poured on top.

Situated in a posh subterranean setting beneath Dream Downtown, an infinity mirrored staircase descends into Megu - a 5,000 sq ft restaurant woven with cherry wood reminiscent of a futuristic shoji screen. The menu, created by Executive Chef Frances Tariga-Weshnak, features flavors of Megu classic dishes as well as renewed twists on offerings that stay true to fine modern Japanese cuisine. Dine amongst customary Japanese interior accents, complimented with a dynamic array of 3-D visuals that map every surface in the room.

An unconventional oasis, The Beach consists of a 5,000 sq ft deck with 800 sq ft of imported sand, Cote D’Azur-inspired chaise lounges, two private cabanas with flat-screen TVs, DJ booth and a glass-bottom swimming pool looking into our hotel lobby.

To accompany each day in the sun, the bar and grill offers a variety of flavorful and refreshing cocktails, as well as light bites from a seasonally evolving menu.


Whether you’re still in school or have been free for quite a while, it’s time to get your PHD (on) at our haute rooftop nightclub and lounge bar. Decked out in Italian Portoro marble, Macassar ebony, nickel finish walls and amber Venini glass chandeliers, this is the ultimate penthouse party. Swing, sway and swerve with locals to the on-point beats of guest DJs, and pop out to the landscaped terrace from time to time for one of the city’s most spectacular uninterrupted sightline views of the Hudson River and Empire State Building.

Lurking deep beneath the hotel, The Electric Room bathes beautiful nightcrawlers of all stripes in Rule Britannia cool with its wood-paneled walls, gothic chandeliers, subversive graffiti and leather couches embossed with Old Glory and Union Jack.

Run by proprietor Nur Khan, The Electric Room is the perfect spot for late night dancing and after-dinner drinks alike, featuring a newly energized cocktail menu crafted by mixologist Johnny Swet. On any given night, the rock & roll soundtrack jumps from Radiohead to The White Stripes. For a curated experience, enjoy one of our signature nights: Sundays with a rotating open format DJ set and Mondays featuring “underground” electronic music.

Be drawn in by the custom artwork, full sound system, 108” high-definition plasma screen TV, and a comfort food menu that includes spicy meatballs, mini cheeseburgers and BLTs. Hard to find (hint: head down the 16th Street loading ramp past the graffiti), The Electric Room is even harder to leave.

Ultimately, it’s our dream that while staying here and playing here, you’ll enjoy this new side of yourself enough to take it with you when you inevitably return home.
