Unique Chelsea hotel with outdoor pool
The staff and service here were fantastic, and the breakfast at Bodega Negra was excellent. Unfortunately we booked the hotel for the pool and did not know it turned into an adult hotspot, so much so that access for kids was closed down after noon on Saturday. However, the pool scene is highly entertaining and decadent. Almost every room has a view down onto the pool through the porthole windows, and there are portholes in the floor of the pool you can view from the lobby below. The pool has drink service and on a hot day, between the day rate visitors and guests, the pool turned into a crowded party. The DJ is audible from the hotel rooms throughout the day, but we enjoyed this. This continues every evening with a who's who in the lounge while young well-dressed socialites await their turns to go to the PhD lounge upstairs. Get a drink in the lobby between 9pm and 11pm for a great view of the scene. Our teens were amused, younger children might be disappointed with limited pool access.

Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to write an honest review of your stay with us here at The Dream Downtown!I am overjoyed we were able to exceed your expectations of us during your stay.
We know that on the weekends the pool does become a bit lively and we do limit child access for their safety. On the weekdays a manager would be more than happy to let your children swim, as long as there is nothing to rambunctious going on.
We are forever changing to and improving to better serve our guests needs, we thank you for your feedback, and look forward to welcoming you back to The Dream soon!
