108-room Dream South Beach Opens in Miami, Florida

MIAMI, June 9, 2011 -- Miami's newest hotel, Dream South Beach – which enjoys its official grand opening today – is the latest addition to South Beach's iconic Collins Avenue, located in the heart of the city's thriving nightlife and Art Deco Historic District. Situated directly behind the former Versace Mansion, the cosmopolitan-chic hotel offers 108 modern guestrooms, a restaurant by celebrated chef Geoffrey Zakarian, an intimate destination rooftop pool lounge with views of the Atlantic Ocean, and an accessory Ayurvedic spa.

Spearheaded by design house Architropolis under the direction of Michael Czysz and interiors lead Kelly Ogden, Dream South Beach is evocative of Miami's distinct atmosphere and history through its multi-million dollar renovation of two historic Art Deco hotels, the Palmer House and the Tudor Hotel, both originally designed in 1939 by top local architect L. Murray Dixon.

Decor elements include unique art objects showcased throughout the hotel, while the design of the guestrooms and sleek rooftop lounge, Highbar, evoke a feeling of the late '70s. The Tudor Hotel lobby has been transformed into the hotel's restaurant space, Tudor House, operated by Michelin-starred chef Geoffrey Zakarian. The restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and provide 24-hour room service and meals for the beach, located one block away. All public areas in the renovated hotel feature signature furniture and lighting fixtures, evoking a surrealistic "dream state." Beachside services are operated by The Boucher Brothers, while Tudor House and Highbar are run by the premier operations firm Trust3 Hospitality, Chef Geoffrey Zakarian, his wife and Marketing Director Margaret Zakarian.

Room rates at Dream South Beach start from U.S. $275, based on double occupancy. For reservations, contact 1.888.376.7623 or visit

The brainchild of hotelier Vikram Chatwal, Dream hotels provide a genuine connection to the distinctive character of each locale. The brand recently entered into an agreement with Wyndham Hotel Group, the world's largest hotel company as measured by nearly 7,210 hotels, in which Wyndham gained exclusive rights to franchise and manage the Dream brand globally.
