The City that Never Sleeps

Our hotel, strangely called Dream, was on West 55th Street. All the streets are numbered like that in the horizontal direction. We wanted to get to some shops below 1st Street (below 1st street there are streets with normal names!), so we set out at 8:30am and walked more than 55 blocks south! It took about an hour and 15 minutes and on the way we …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Dream New York New York City

    Busmans holiday

    from

    After reading the first reviews slightly worried as to what to expect. Arrived 10pm to find lobby littered with workmen installing water feature / lift. Some rooms still not finished, corridor lighting features also dangerously exposed. As for the room itself the bed was very soft (almost too soft) but enormous. The bathroom was poor for this standard of hotel: grout to tiling had been overpainted, grout in floor tiles to shower had cracked already- not sure if the bathrooms had just been refurbished from previous incarnation as the Majestic. Worst feature was the shelving unit above sink which prevented being able to bend over the sink to wash in. As for the corridor noise mentioned by a previous reviewer, this could be down to the lack of intumescent smoke seals around door frames. Not sure if they are a requirement in the US, but the fire dept. in the UK would have prevented the hotel from opening in this state. Bar was so dark the poor staff can't see what they are doing, and also it is not possible to charge drinks to the room. In the process of checking out (four nights early) the next day, the lobby was in an even worse state of disarray; we almost tripped over a contractors trolley when exiting the lift.

    Dream is a nightmare

    from

    I stayed here on October 18, 2004, and the place really was a nightmare. It was still under construction and shouldn't have been receiving guests. My first room had exposed wiring and a lock that didn't work. They moved me. The second room also had a lock that didn't work and required a number of instrusive visits from hotel staff. A closet filled with garbage - yes garbage - was directly across from my room. Most of the time, the closet door was open. Although the decor purports to be hip, it's like sleeping in a meat locker. A clossal disappointment, especially for the price.

    Stayed less than an hour

    from

    I was disappointed in the chaotic front desk; the building site that was the first floor; the size of my room; the lack of any information about the hotel and the noise of the drilling, sawing and hammering that was constant from the floor below me. Front desk assured me this would only last from 8:30 until 5:00! Having booked and anticipated a peaceful haven, to find that the spa will not be opening until next January at the latest, I negotiated a departure within the hour. Unfortunately the phone in my room was not working to enable me to negotiate this departure in the privacy of my bedroom. I had a long hour of negotiations with the front desk before departing.

    Standerd prefab cool.

    from

    The rooms small, construction in the lobby.No breakfast or snack offered. But the location of the hotel is great. The bed is very comfortable and staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel bar was still empty for a Saturday night and the roof top bar did not offer any thing special to rave about. The decor of the lobby and room had a store bought prefab hip that you can copy from your local mall. Perhaps for a small hotel I expect a little more designer cool.

    Slept like a baby

    from

    I recently visited the hotel. I thought the lobby was amazing. There has been so much done in just this past week. I found the staff very pleasant. The beds are more than fabulous. The BEST robe, I have ever worn. Even though the Chopra Spa hasn't opened, it was still a great experience.

    Dream is getting better all the time...

    from

    I've discovered that much progress and many improvements have been made at the hotel in just the last week. The lobby is lovely and the overall design of the public areas is unique and very interesting. The guest rooms are tastefully done obviously with great care and thought given to the guest's comfort. Even though the Chopra Center has not yet opened Dream already offers guests a wonderful New York experience.

    You can Dream if you get a quiet room

    from

    Almost a nightmare! The room we were presented with upon arrival was on the 7th floor, next to the elevator. Our king size bedded room was very small, but did wow us initially with the large screen tv on the wall and cool blue lighting. The bed itself was excellent. Unfortunately, it ended there. The tiled shower stall had no place for the soap and no towel bars to hang towels....so much for trying to save water. At 2 am, I was awakened by brief loud talking in the hallway (indication of poor soundproofing around the door) and then a door shut hard creating a loud noise. When I finally tried to rest again, the elevator shaft made irritating noise as did the air-conditioning blower. The temperature was set at 70 degees and could not be adjusted. Lastly at 8:14 am, the clock alarm, which had been preset, went off. Enough, I said...we're getting a different room.

    Not the stuff that Dreams are made of

    from

    "4 star" hotels usually have service to offer, but the Dream Hotel, in it's incomplete state has little to recommend it. There was no doorman waiting...or maybe there was, but we never would have known, because nobody offered to help us when we arrived. Doormen and porters are not uniformed at the Dream Hotel. Uniforms may not be trendy, but they do help identify the guests from the staff.

    Construction site

    from

    It is possible that in a few monthes this hotel will be a better place to stay. But, right now it shouldn't be opened. They hadn't yet stocked the mini bar, it was completely empty. The lobby was still underconstruction. They told us we would have 24hr room service, but they had nothing to serve us. When we asked for a comment card, they told us they hadn't been printed yet.

    More like nightmare

    from

    Horrible experience. First impression was not good at all - there was a dumpster in front of the hotel and no one to take our bags or greet us. It looked like the hotel was still under construction (which it was!) despite the assurances of the staff that "we are just adding a light fitting and everything else is renovated". This was a lie! When we came back later in the day there was (still) dust all over the lobby, wires everywhere, furniture flung haphazardly all over the lobby and workmen still installing a lift - drilling, hammering etc. It was a disgrace! We were shown our "king size" room to find it was tiny - much smaller than a standard room in a chain hotel, and you could touch the next building if you opened the window! We asked to see another room, and the next room they tried to palm off on us also stunk, both literally and figuratively!
