Leadership Cut From a Different Cloth

We know what makes us different makes us stronger, and because we were born of an entrepreneurial spirit, it has always been paramount that we look at things through the lens of ownership. Our team is your team, and when we put our experiences and partnerships to work on behalf of your hotel, our success becomes your success.

Our Founders




Founded in 1986 by Sant Singh Chatwal, Dream Hotel Group grew out of his unique vision of pioneering real estate on Manhattan's west side. Already a successful restaurateur, Chatwal procured several tourist class properties that would eventually become the foundation for what is today a dynamic group offering proprietary lifestyle brands as well as property and asset management services.
