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 Hotel was an ideal location. We walked to so many things. The rooms are spacious , comfortable and clean. Adrian , Anthony and Winard we're super friendly making the visit fantastic. The breakfast at Serafina was average. The lounge PHD was nice.
"Ended up working late in the city and decided to stay over. Found this place on Hotels Tonight and thought I would give it a shot. The location of this place is amazing- it is simultaneously out of the way, and yet in the middle of everything. I went for a run in Central Park and it was only a five minute walk to get there! Aside from the location, the staff is incredible, especially Adrian the bellman. Next time im in the city for a show or an event, I will definitly be staying here"
Drove down from Charlestown with the crew and we couldn’t haven been more impressed with Dream and the staff! Adrian the bellboy and Arvin the concierge made sure we were taken care of from the second we pulled in! These guys go above and beyond for their guests! Special shoutout to Gustavo and Winard at the front desk for making sure our room was the best in the house. All around classy guys and a classy hotel. Thanks Dream! Will be back 100%
