Dream Hotel Group, in partnership with Memphis, Tenn., real estate developer 18Main, plans to open the Dream Hotels brand’s second Tennessee hotel in 2022. The 178-room Dream Memphis will feature a signature restaurant, a lobby lounge, a coffee shop and a rooftop bar with indoor and outdoor event space.

18 Main, owner of the Dream Memphis, will convert the Royal Furniture building in downtown Memphis, keeping the existing facade. The hotel will be located a short walk from Beale Street, as well as the FedEx Forum, home of the NBA Memphis Grizzlies and NCAA Memphis Tigers. The area is home to the world headquarters of several companies, including ServiceMaster, AutoZone, Indigo Ag and, soon, FedEx Logistics.

“We are excited by 18Main’s continued investment in the downtown core,” Jennifer Oswalt, president/CEO of the Downtown Memphis Commission, said in a statement. “Their commitment to revitalization and reuse aligns well with the Downtown Memphis Commission’s vision. This is a key site on Main Street and near the entertainment district, and we believe the reimagining of this beautiful building into a boutique hotel would create additional 24/7 vibrancy, which is always welcome downtown.”
