Dream Hotels brand to enter historic Louisville
Designed by Cube 3 with stylish interiors from Josh Held and WATG, Dream Louisville promises to shake up the hospitality scene in Kentucky’s largest city.
An all-star team is joining forces to realise an exciting scheme in the Bluegrass State.
Making a mark in Louisville
Dream Hotel Group is partnering with Royal Investments to open Dream Louisville in 2025, it has been revealed. This newly announced project represents the second Dream Hotels-branded property for developer Royal Investments, following on from the 2019 launch of Dream Nashville.
The new Louisville outpost will showcase the architectural design of Miami-based Cube 3, along with the interiors of Josh Held and WATG. Its 168 guestrooms will be joined by four F&B concepts and 10,000 sq ft of event space.
“Given the success of our partnership in Nashville, we jumped at the opportunity to work with Alex Marks and his talented team to introduce Dream Louisville as the new gem of Bourbon City,” said Dream Hotel Group CEO Jay Stein. “Louisville is one of the fastest growing markets in the country and a critical addition to our growing portfolio. We are proud to play a role in creating what will be one of the most spectacular rehabilitations in downtown Louisville.”
“After opening the Dream hotel in 2019, I set my sights on the next city that embraced the same quality and energy we delivered in Nashville,” added Alex Marks, owner of Nashville-based Royal Investments. “Just two hours up the road, Louisville’s historic buildings on Main Street are the perfect setting to bring the elevated experience to an already lively and welcoming city.
“Dream was onboard day one and quickly jumped into action to begin designing a property with world-class accommodations, fine dining and chic entertainment experiences that they’ve delivered several times before.”
Drawing on the history of the area
Louisville’s newest hotel will take over the former Tapp Leather & Co building, which dates back to 1888. Altogether, the scheme is to encompass seven buildings from 811 to 823 West Main Street at the start of the famous Kentucky Bourbon Trail.
A stay here will place guests close to a variety of appealing sights, including Frazier History Museum, the Muhammad Ali Center and Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory.
“The Dream brand represents a vibrancy and sophisticated experience that we’re confident will become a focal point of the neighbourhood and the city of Louisville as a whole,” said David Kuperberg, chief development officer at Dream Hotel Group. “We have a great synergy with Alex Marks and his team at Royal Investments, and we are thrilled to partner with him again to bring our collective vision to life on Main Street Louisville.
