Also, the opportunities in the upscale tier
are compelling for lifestyle properties. Our
Unscripted brand has a lot of legs. I can't wait
to show the world what our brand of lifestyle in
that space looks like when we open Unscripted
Durham in North Carolina this May.

The current buzzword is experiential.
How do you define that?

JAY STEIN

CEO, Dream Hotel Group
What is your favorite project you're
currently working on?
For me, the maturation of Dream Hotels into
a first choice, fully borne lifestyle brand with
a more robust footprint has me really excited.
The opening of our Hollywood property is a
tipping point for the brand as far as consumer
awareness and availability of destination options
for our core guest. The new locations we recently
announced-Nashville and Dallas-have me
particularly fired up because they are both cities
with very rich cultures and vibrant populations
where the lifestyle segment is [currently]
noticeably absent.

Lifestyle hotels were built on engaging
experiences at every level-from vibrant
dining and nightlife and forward-thinking
design to unique brand partnerships and
the programming of our public spaces, even
hotel personnel and property management.
Engagement is boosted by dynamic spaces that
take on a different energy created by the crowd
in the room and not necessarily the room itself.
Without that, it's just another boring hotel.

How do you choose collaborators?
We look at not only each project but also each
venue within that project individually to see
what the best option is for the occasion and the
location. It's a requirement of ours to engage
partners that get us and if it's the right fit,
they will elevate us and take us in directions
we couldn't have predicted.
At the end of the day, our goal is to create

engaging environments that are part of the fabric
of the place it calls home. We look carefully
at each market and select partners that make
sense locally so that we can learn through the
process. No one is going to be an expert on every
environment, and we aren't afraid to get in bed
with a lot of different experts to help us bring the
best concepts to market.

What do you like most about your job?
Managing creative and sometimes challenging
employees that other companies choose not to
work with. We create an environment where
they can be disruptors but within a team setting.
In my experience, it's the only way to truly
innovate and keep your product unique.

What's keeping you up at night?
Labor issues, Airbnb, direct booking wars-but
mostly it's just the vast amount of work that
comes with the job. Overseeing 16 operating
hotels and working with our development teams
to design and program the next 15 hotels opening
over the next few years is a big task. Keeping up
with emails, phone calls, meetings, and travel
schedules takes up most of my day. Before I
know it, it's midnight and I need to get a few
hours of sleep. But I love it!
