Vikram Chatwal's Bad 'Dream' Continues in South Beach
Back in February, we did a drive-by of the South Beach site of Vikram Chatwal's Dream Hotel in Miami. Back then, the signs plastered over the construction said "Coming 2008." We chuckled. Six months later—guess what? Yup, this is what it looks like now.
We'd make a joke here about playing a game of "Spot the Difference in the Pictures," but given Mr. Chatwal's financial troubles, that seems a little cruel. And, besides, there is no prize.

It's a shame, as we'd really like to see what the South Beach Dream can bring to the crowded scene down in Miami. But given these shots of a not-very-active construction site, we realize that this is one hotel opening that may be nothing more than a recurring...yeah you know. So don't count on staying here for Labor Day.
This is what the site looked like in February.
