              • Couple

                A great price for a very nice room in NYC.

                I was expecting a very modern/chic designed/decorated room and got a very ornate old victorian themed room. I did not appreciated that the room looked nothing like the room pictures published on the website.

              • Couple

                unwashed bathrobes from the previous tenants, tiny rooms, no telephone shower,no hot water after midnight, booked a king size and was provided small queensize bed and the stuff was really unhelpful-bad customer service for a basic 4 star hotel in New York .there was no reply from reservation dept after 5 mails and a fax to reconfirm my booking.

              • Couple

                The location was excellent, it was the best thing of all, in the 7th Avenue in 55th, just 3 minutes to Times Square and the subway at the same door.

                The lobby is a little bit dark. Also they charge the whole amount of your stay plus $300 in case you break anything. I did not mind because I had enough money in my account but I did not know that until I checked it....imagine you want to buy something with that card and you don´t have enough money. Eventhough it is a common practice in the US they should say it.

                Excellent location comfortable rooms Great diner within 50 yards of hotel entrance Half of the most famous New York sights within 30 minutes walk/5 minute taxi ride. May bee tempted to use again.

                Saucy bar decor Has the feel of a nightclub on Saturday nights

                From the staff to the hotel appearance and quality at a great price! They offer loctain toiletries and they have 2 great restaurants to choose from. The spa is great and they have a state of the art workout center. Also 3 lounges and bars. One of which is a roof top lounge.

                Friendly staff. Good location. Quiet.

                Think it's about time they had free wifi in the rooms. The way the mirror, the shelf and the sink are positioned in the bathroom makes it awkward to shave

                The bose radios in each room was phenomenal!!! I haven't stayed in a hotel room where such radios were a part of the norm. I love music and found this to be most enjoyable.

                It was pretty close quarters. Small rooms. But it was very clean.

                Noise from the night club upstairs in the hotel, no free wifi in the room, room was small even though sold as spacious

                The staff at the front desk were very nice. The decor was lovely and the beds were very comfortable. The location is convenient for almost everywhere in the city.

                Services were minimal and at times the hotel seemed a bit understaffed. The concierge desk seemed unoccupied whenever I went by so I did not avail myself of concierge services like I would normally. Also the desk is so high that it is very uninviting. Services seemed a bit more difficult to access. For example, in order to get ice one had to call room service. The motion sensor mini-bar seems tacky and unnecessary.

                The best feature of this hotel is location. The staff was pretty kind. Guests in this hotel also were respectful.

                Noise from the street was pretty load at night. Our room with king size bed was small (abt. 12 sq.m.). WiFi free only on the ground floor.

                Room very clean; staff seemed very pleasant, although I did not need much attention.

                Not really a criticism, but the room I was in was quite small; bathroom small. For one person not a problem, but even for a couple it would seem cramped.

                I found the location to be right in the heart of Manhattan. All main attractions were walking distance. My room was very clean, and all staff were very helpful and nice. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family and I would stay at The Dream again in the future. L. Bollas
