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
This is my second trip to Dream Midtown. Last time was great, this time was great. That’s what we call a perfect batting average. I was in NYC on business and didn’t have a lot time for play; having an amazing bar on the roof top of my hotel was very convenient! I managed to squeeze in some fun around what could have otherwise been a very stressful trip. Everyone was friendly, from the housekeepers to the maintenance gentleman (Jack) who fixed my thermostat for me. Adrian and Abi at the front door greeted me upon my arrival and I was stunned to see that Adrian remembered me from my last trip. Really made me feel at home. The other person I should mention is Holden. I went to the front desk looking for advice on where to grab a late night meal and he was so friendly. Thanks for another great stay, Dream Midtown — looking forward to staying with you again.
This hotel is wonderful from the bars to the restaurant to the rooms. The staff were attentive however, one person really like to thank is 2/2 Morgan, Night auditor for the hotel. He guided us through out our stay. He's very knowledgable and very patient. He made our trip worth it!
The Dream Midtown is an amazing hotel! The platinum suite is incredible and my new favorite room to stay in. Adrian was the most friendly and helpful man to ever offer me assistance at any hotel, the other staff were great too!
The location is great; i was able to run in Central Park, eat at great restaurants, and walk over to the St. Patrick's day parade on 5th ave. I will definitely be back to the Dream!
Having a great time at the Dream Midtown Hotel, thanks to Morgan & Adrian! Everyone has gone above & beyond to make my trip special & because it was my birthday they threw in a free drink voucher & breakfast . Highly recommend.
The hotel was really nice and clean. Adrian and Holden was very friendly as well. It is close to time square. Perfect location 👍 my only complaint is the elevators we're not working..they only had 2 working. But I would definitely stay again.
