Like its partner in crime around the corner, The Gansevoort Meatpacking, the Dream Downtown is less a hotel and more a nightclub/pool party that has a place where it is OK for your bachelor party to sleep for a few hours (aka your room). If it is the weekend and after 2PM expect a wonderful circus of half- dressed baby giraffes tottering around in high heels and oversized sunglasses. Not that there’s anything not amazing about that.

Of course the rooms are loud. Yes it is noisy. But with drunken models comes some downside. You’ll live.

Venue Tip: 

Rooms are small even by NYC standards so if you plan to spend any time in there or need some bachelor party hang time book at least one Junior Suite or bigger.

The Good: 
Close to the party, whether at the hotel or nearby in the Meatpacking. Pretty people abound.
The Bad: 
It can have the attitude of the cool nightclub. Rooms are tight and clearly not a hotel priority.
