Wyndham to Franchise Two Chatwal Brands
s the phrase “boutique hotel franchise” an oxymoron? Wyndham Hotel Group and Chatwal Hotels & Resorts LLC clearly don’t think so. Wyndham has entered an agreement to exclusively franchise and manage Chatwal’s Dream and Night boutique hotel brands globally. Sant Singh Chatwal, chairman and ceo of the company bearing his name, says that teaming with Wyndham will “take the development of the Dream and Night brands to the next level” by leveraging Wyndham’s global distribution system, loyalty program and extended reach of its development professionals. Chatwal Hotels & Resorts will continue to own the Dream and Night brand trademarks and intellectual property. Dream and Night hotels currently are open in New York, Bangkok and Cochin, India. In addition, the 108-room, art-deco-inspired Dream South Beach is scheduled to open soon in Miami Beach, Fla. Chatwal has also announced plans to open a Dream hotel in New York’s Meatpacking District during the second quarter of this year, and to expand that flag in South Asia.

yster bars and art deco are on the rise, and so is a stretch of real estate in the Big Apple that’s embracing both those concepts. Among the new restaurants helping revive New York’s Flatiron/Gramercy area is Millesime, a new French seafood bistro located inside the Carlton Hotel. The space was designed by Douglas Fanning, a newcomer to the hospitality scene but not to design. His 17-year-old New York architecture and design firm, DYAD, is known for its contemporary furnishings and lighting, in addition to architecture/design projects and installations. Millesime is accessible from the hotel’s lobby, and the restaurant consists of two separate spaces joined by an inner stair. A lower level houses the Salon Millesime and lobby bar, while its brasserie is located on the mezzanine. In all, the restaurant has about 6,000 sq. ft. of space and can seat about 250. “For me, the idea of the Salon was to create a space with hints of early deco and the feeling of luxury in materials,” says Fanning. “Tables are ebony with inlaid bronze bars lining the middle, and the large cube shades and sconces are a lamination of brown linen with a glowing burgundy silk interior. Low, streamlined banquettes wrap the open stage with hand-stitched leather panels accenting columns and walls.”
