Wyndham Hotel Group has entered a development agreement with Chatwal Hotels & Resorts to franchise and manage its Dream and Night boutique brands.

Dream and Night hotels are open in New York; Bangkok, Thailand; and Cochin, India.

The 108-room, art deco-inspired Dream South Beach is scheduled to open early this year in Miami Beach, Fla., adjacent to the former Versace Mansion on Collins Avenue.

Also, there are plans to open a Dream hotel in New York’s Meatpacking District during the second quarter of this year and expand in South Asia.

"The addition of the Dream and Night brands will complement Wyndham Hotel Group’s diverse brand portfolio, which focuses on meeting guest needs with a hotel product for every kind of traveler," said Eric Danziger, Wyndham Hotel Group's CEO.

"These design-driven, destination-within-a-destination brands are favored by travelers who crave an avant-garde yet cosmopolitan experience."

The deal is just the latest expansion by Wyndham, which last year entered a similar development agreement with Planet Hollywood. It also acquired the Tryp brand from Sol Melia.

Chatwal Hotels CEO Sant Singh Chatwal said Wyndham Hotel Group will "take the development of the Dream and Night brands to the next level" by leveraging Wyndham’s global distribution system, loyalty program and network of development professionals.

Chatwal Hotels will continue to own the Dream and Night brand trademarks and intellectual property. Chatwal also has a management arm, Hampshire Hotels & Resorts.
