Dream New York Review

Part hotel, part Kafkaesque dream, this Midtown spot specializes in style over comfort but is still quite livable, despite some over-the-top design features—and noise from the scenesters headed to the rooftop bar. The dreamscape starts in the lobby, which combines an enormous two-story cylindrical neon-lighted aquarium, an unsettling two-story photograph of a tattooed woman, and a copper sculpture of Catherine the Great. Rooms have stark white walls, black furniture, and light-box desks that glow from within. Stay here if you love things modern: plasma TVs, complimentary iPod use, a Deepak Chopra spa, and a velvet-rope rooftop bar scene at AVA Lounge. There's a second Dream Hotel in the Meatpacking District.

    You'll feel like George Jetson, or Jane his wife.

    This place is tres chic and truly unique! I can't decide whether I felt transported to another country or another planet but this is like nothing else I've experienced! The lobby is highly technological and modern. I could barely figure out how to use the elevator or opens doors at first because it was so electronic and full of music and rythym. The room had portals for windows, round ones and bathroom strange but fantastic ambient lighting and chain shower curtains. I felt like I was in The Jetsons! If you want something different and hip pick dream you won't be disappointed!
