Dream Hotel New York is a unique experience for the senses. This Upper West Side property occupies a renovated 1895 beaux-arts building four blocks from both Central Park and the AOL/Time Warner Center. Inside Dream Hotel New York’s exquisite rooms, guests will find themselves surrounded by the latest hi-tech gadgets -- plasma TV, pre-loaded Ipod, laptop compatible inroom safe, and high-speed Internet access. A glass elevator in the center of Dream’s lobby takes guests below ground to The Chopra Center NY, which provides Ayurvedic healing arts, as taught by Deepak Chopra. It is expected to open in autumn 2005. Dream Hotel New York also features an onsite Italian restaurant, a lobby lounge and a rooftop lounge. The latter -- Ava Lounge, named after movie star Ava Gardner, is an eclectic mix of 1950s retro and French Riviera. It offers stunning views of New York City.
