CLEVELAND — A new hotel called Dream Cleveland will sit adjacent to the city’s historic Masonic Temple, featuring 207 guest rooms, multiple dining and nightlife venues and an on-site parking deck for 400 vehicles.
“Cleveland is the birthplace of rock and roll, and much like the Dream Hotels brand, it is a city marked by a youthful, vibrant energy, creative spirit and burgeoning arts and culture scene that many aren’t yet aware of. Together, with partners Beaty Capital Group, our goal is to deliver an experience-driven property that surpasses expectations, blending great food and beverage, creative programming, entertainment and world-class hospitality, in the heart of Midtown Cleveland," said Dream Hotel Group CEO Jay Stein in a news release.
Dream Cleveland is part of a larger development housed within the historic 2,300-seat theater in the Masonic Temple. Erected in 1921, the venue was the original home of the Cleveland Orchestra, and has since been host to a variety of live music events. Most recently, under the management of TempleLive, a company originating out of Fort Smith, Arkansas, Masonic Temple has hosted MGMT, Bastille, Fitz and the Tantrums, to name a few.
The presence of Dream Cleveland will transform a rather empty part of Euclid Avenue.
“Over the last decade we’ve seen hundreds of millions of dollars of investment into new offices, apartments, concert venues, museums, gourmet food markets, and restaurants in our dynamic neighborhood and we are excited to see this catalytic project breathe new life into a historic building," said Jeff Epstein, Executive Director of Midtown Cleveland, in a news release.
Local architectural firm Bialosky is working closely with general contractor Cleveland Construction. The firm’s design evolved from a simple hotel bar elevated above the adjacent historic structure. The design will give guests unobstructed views of Downtown, Cleveland Clinic, University Circle, and Lake Erie.
“We feel that adding a unique product like a Dream Hotel to the historic elegance of the Masonic Temple is truly an exciting project that we are proud to be a part of,” said Cleveland Construction, Inc. Vice President Dan Dietrich, in a news release.
Construction on the hotel is expected to begin in early 2021. Dream Cleveland will join other Dream hotels across the country, including Dream Las Vegas and Dream San Antonio.
