Dream Hotel Group announces the appointment of Weylan Rhame as General Manager of Unscripted Durham in North Carolina.
Tapping into more than 35 years of hospitality experience, including leadership positions for full-service hotels and resorts with Hilton, Marriott and Sheraton, as well as five-star timeshare resorts in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Rhame brings strategic leadership, attention to detail and in-depth experience to Unscripted Durham which will prove vital in the continued success of the brand’s flagship location.
“We are thrilled to appoint someone as experienced and passionate about hospitality as Weylan Rhame,” said Jay Stein, Chief Executive Officer, Dream Hotel Group.
“As an industry veteran, Weylan brings a deep understanding of hospitality and a proven track record of success and professionalism that will certainly support our goals for Unscripted Durham.”
As General Manager, Rhame is responsible for the day-to-day management of the 74-room boutique hotel and its three on-site food and beverage outlets, The Patio, The Studio and All Day Café, as well as executive oversight, recruitment and development of staff, annual hotel budgets and assuring guest satisfaction. Rhame most recently served as Area General Manager in San Antonio, Texas, overseeing both the Doubletree San Antonio Downtown and the Bevy Hotel, a Doubletree by Hilton, in Boerne, TX.
“In my thirty-five years working in hotels, I’ve learned you don’t get anywhere by sitting comfortably in a chair and having the chance to work with Dream Hotel Group and Unscripted Durham is a truly amazing opportunity,” added Weylan Rhame.
“Durham is buzzing with activity, and I look forward to offering our guests the highest level of service and hospitality they’ve come to know and love at Unscripted.”
A 1960s icon formerly known as the Jack Tar Motor Lodge, Unscripted Durham features 74 well-appointed guest rooms and studios, and six locally inspired restaurants and bars, including an expansive rooftop pool deck and lounge, and three restaurants on the street level. Maintaining its original architecture and signature mid-century modern façade, the building’s long glass windows, split-levels and minimalist lines are now accented by bright, bold colors, geometric patterns, and custom murals. Each space is full of distinct character, just like the city of Durham.
Located at 202 N. Corcoran Street in the heart of historic downtown Durham, North Carolina, Unscripted is walking distance from the American Tobacco Campus, Durham Bulls Athletic Park, Durham Performing Arts Center and some of the city’s finest restaurants and bars.
