General Manager Michael Dunbar will take the lead on hotel operations, guest relations, and execution of strategy for Fairlane Hotel, a luxe 79-room property that brings the style and personality of the 1960s & 70s back to downtown Nashville.
As a veteran hotelier, Dunbar brings nearly 25 years of industry experience and a keen eye for raising expectations to achieve luxury standards and five-star qualities. He will oversee employee performance and guest satisfaction within the property, while also monitoring and developing team member performance, and encouraging professional development.
Prior to his role at Fairlane Hotel, Dunbar successfully opened and managed AC & Element Hotels by Mariott in San Antonio Riverwalk. Dunbar also held general manager roles at Dream Midtown in New York, New York and 21c Museum Hotel in Cincinnati, Ohio. During this time, he grew his passion for not just the hotel and hospitality industry, but also for establishing cultural standards and rebranding initiatives to make each property a surrealistic, best-in-class experience for guests.
