Dream Hotel Group Names New COO

Michael Lindenbaum

Dream Hotel Group has promoted Michael Lindenbaum to chief operating officer.

In his new role, Lindenbaum will oversee the operations of all Dream Hotel Group-owned and managed hotels worldwide, including its Dream Hotels, Time Hotels, and Unscripted Hotels brands. He will continue to oversee the technical advisement teams working on newly signed projects and seeing those hotels through to opening.

Lindenbaum joined Dream Hotel Group in 2010 as VP of operations, where he oversaw the opening of Dream Hotels’ East Coast flagship, Dream Downtown. Prior to joining Dream Hotel Group, Lindenbaum held senior management positions for a variety of lifestyle brands including, Gansevoort Hotel Group, Gotham Hospitality, The Library Collection (formerly HK Hotels), and Born-Druckier Hotels.

“Michael is a seasoned and trusted leader who consistently delivers results,” said Jay Stein, chief executive officer, Dream Hotel Group. “Michael’s leadership overseeing the launch of our flagship Dream Downtown in New York City, coupled with the success of the company’s rapid global growth and development, demonstrates his invaluable role in our company.”

The news comes on the heels of Dream Hotel Group’s recent announcement plans to bring its Dream Hotels brand to Downtown Memphis, set to open in 2022, marking the second Dream Hotels location in Tennessee, following the highly anticipated opening of Dream Nashville earlier this year.

Dream Hotel Group plans to sign another 30 hotels and resorts across all its brands over the next four years, continuing to solidify its burgeoning global portfolio.
