Housed in an 1895 Beaux-Arts flatiron building, the Dream Midtown feels fully modern thanks to a $22 million facelift. The lobby feels slick and tailored with mod charcoal and purple velvet seating, geometric-patterned floors and an open-plan layout. The only souvenir from the hotel’s previous design? A whimsical floor-to-ceiling fish tank housed in a giant pillar. Studio GAIA spearheaded the head-to-toe reno of the 216 guest rooms. Bright floral-patterned headboards wrap up into a canopy on the ceiling, and the pillowy beds are topped in soft duvets with chartreuse and violet pillows. Bathrooms spoil with gleaming Carrera marble, stainless steel fixtures and signature Dream toiletries. We dig the thoughtful tech perks, from wireless charging stations to Bluetooth-enabled radios. Off the corner of the lobby, Serafina restaurant dishes up creative Italian fare, like baked branzino encased in Sicilian salt, in Fellini-inspired digs. For after-dinner drinks head to The Bar, the cozy lobby lounge with dark leather seating, or up to PHD, a 2,500-square-foot rooftop den and outdoor space overlooking Broadway and Times Square.
In the Area
Guests don’t have to go far to see celebrities; past guests include everyone from Ozzy Osbourne to Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston. For more star-gazing, score discounted Broadway show tickets at the TKTS booth in Times Square, seven blocks south of the hotel. You’re also within walking distance of some of the city’s (and the world’s) best restaurants. Ask the concierge to help you score a table at Thomas Keller’s legendary Per Se, Michael White’s Italian seafood temple Marea or Eric Ripert’s elegant Le Bernardin. Afterwards, check out Jazz at Lincoln Center in the nearby Time Warner Center or walk a few blocks farther uptown to see the ballet, opera or symphony at the main campus of Lincoln Center.
How to Get There
The Dream is a nice hotel and close to a lot of main attractions, yeah the rooms are small but you only sleep in them, we stayed on the 3rd floor towards the back of the hotel which was good as we didn’t hear as much noise from outside or at the club upstairs.
A good suggestion would be to have tea and coffee making facilities in the room and allow guests to use the bar fridge to store there own items in.
To the issue with the lifts and a lot of people complain about this and I don’t blame them and seeing the reply from your staff back from 2018 that you are working to fix this problem but obviously you aren’t. There are 3 lifts (1 broke down towards the end of our stay) 1 is so small and staff use this lift so it can be a wait, the 2nd lift was ok and the 3rd lift during the PHD Club opening hours (controlled my security guards) is reserved for the club only, now that is wrong, guests who pay a lot of $$ to stay at your hotel should have 1st preference to the lifts, however you prefer to let people use it first who are going to the club. I’d stay here again when the issue is fixed, but when you think about it what could be done to fix the issue ??
Dream hotel located in the heart of midtown 4 blocks from Central Park and easy walking distance to restaurants, theatres and shopping. The rooms were updated, clean and comfortable. Special thanks to Adrian, Gustavo and Winnard who were very welcoming, helpful and definitely exceeded expectations. I can see why the hotel earned so many 5 star ratings. We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay here. Thank you.
Stayed in this hotel with my husband for 5 nights. Location of the hotel is good. Less than 10 minutes walk to Time Square & 5th Avenue. You can access to many attractions by foot. Many restaurants & cafes close to the hotel. Room is clean and bed is comfortable. Shuttle bus pick up from the hotel to airport can easily be arranged via Go Airlink NYC for about usd22 per person.
One con on this hotel is the rooms are not sound proof. As the rooms are very close to each other, you can hear doors opening & people chatting outside your door. Didn’t give a higher rating as the service is average. The staff accommodate to your requests but you don’t feel the warm to service. We were out most of the time so wasn’t really bothered too much on that. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.
