Centrally located on famed Las Vegas Blvd., across the street from Mandalay Bay Resort and Bali Hai Golf Club, Dream Las Vegas will be one of the first hotel properties seen from the iconic Welcome to Las Vegas sign. A bold new design for Dream Hotel Group’s flagship property will provide a highly energized entertainment destination on the famed Las Vegas Strip. The hotel embodies both forward-thinking design and world-class hospitality to deliver a one-of-a-kind destination for Dream’s guests to Sin City.

Elevating A Boutique Destination

The Dream Las Vegas design features a 525-luxury guestroom hotel tower perched over three sprawling levels of dynamic gaming, dining, and nightlife venues. These stacked layers shift and undulate vertically to break down the large scale of the building and provide an elevated series of roof decks to offer new and dramatic views of the strip and desert landscape beyond.

Breaking Bad

The evolution of the traditional hotel block and how our design team sheared and twisted the architectural massing to craft a unique environmentally responsive solution. Daylighting, sculptural drama, and an elevated one-of-a-kind roof venue began to take shape.

Design solutions inspired by the native cactus and landforms give the architectural fenestration its unique appearance. Undulating lines trace the hotel tower and add a sophisticated texture that plays with the desert sun.

Design for Discovery

Dream Hotels represents an elevated and experiential approach to hospitality. Developing the circulation and programming closely with the brand design team led to a series of levels intimately choreographed as guests explore the nine different entrainment and food and beverage venues throughout the hotel.
