New York’s boutique hotel developer Dream Hotel Group is moving west, debuting its flagship lifestyle Dream Hotels in Las Vegas with a new freestanding 450-room luxury outpost on the Las Vegas Strip. Designed by DLR Group in collaboration with McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., the 21-story boutique luxury hotel tower will feature a diverse mix of dramatic entertainment venues distributed vertically throughout a composition roof decks and terraces bridging the hotel design towers.
The project has been in the planning stages for about a year, noted Brian Murch, senior hospitality design leader and a principal of DLR Group, Overland Park, Kansas.
“There’s a lot of visual storytelling,” a particular challenge when nearby hotels tell stories of Rome, Venice, Paris and New York City, Murch observed. Instead, Dream Hotel will offer a quieter aesthetic.
Set to open in 2023, the contemporary design will feature a glass and metal façade boasting radiused corners, spacious double-height terraces, oversized windows and a unique aerodynamic character influenced by its context. When complete, Dream Hotel Las Vegas will provide a one-stop, highly energized destination in the heart of the city.
“People are looking for a boutique experience,” Murch noted. “We decided to create a hotel catering to service, with clean lines, an organic, fluid approach and then to give it an aesthetic that’s not too in-your-face.”
The exterior utilizes a significant amount of glass to take advantage of the views of the Strip, nearby McCarran Airport, and the surrounding mountains. (Triple panes will buffer the noise from the airport.) Barrel cactus and other shade plants will provide sustainable shade.
Inside, the hotel will boast a rooftop pool deck, bar and lounge, three feature restaurants, two additional bar and lounge concepts on the gaming floor, and a grab-and-go café on the street level, as well as 12,000 square feet of private meeting and event space, a full-service spa, fitness center, and on-site parking. LED lighting, low flow water fixtures and green roofs will also reduce the project’s impact on the environment.
“We’re trying to create a lush green environment that fosters a bit of cooling,” Murch said. “We’re trying to create a bit of an oasis in the desert.”
