Sixty degree weather in December? Lucky for you, Dream Downtown is bringing winter to hotel guests and New Yorkers alike with Dream Lodge – a rustic, cozy winter retreat. The hotel’s entrance welcomes guests with an animated snowflake projection above candlelit birch logs that line the walls alongside rustic adirondack chairs draped in warm fur throws.
As guests and the general public make their way through the lobby, the reception desk is made over with an illuminated modern log facade with a custom-made SKI marquee sign while an antique toboggan hangs on the back wall.
The lobby lounge and bar area will receive a rustic ski lodge makeover complete with plaid throw blankets and pillows, log tables and branch lamps.
The outdoor area (behind the sprawling floor-to-ceiling windows that line the back wall of Dream Downtown’s lobby) is transformed into a ski lodge porch complete with a fire pit, swinging log bench, kindle rack, hanging icicles and a pair of vintage skis.
The pièce de résistance of the holiday installation is a hand painted, snowy mountain mosaic installed on the outside wall of the lobby. Weatherproof gobos are installed to spotlight the area during the nighttime.
Pro Tip: Stop by in the evening hours to see snowfall!
