Dream Hollywood

Hollywood, Los Angeles

The hotel

Daring to be different, this is fast becoming recognised as one of the hippest hotels in Hollywood. As chic and playful as the city that surrounds it, Dream Hollywood is dressed for the red carpet – from the fresh dove-whites of its lobby and gadget-stuffed guestrooms, to the sheer opulence of its dining venues. Led by the formidable TAO Group, the restaurants take you from the Far East at dramatic TAO Asian Bistro, to the sun of Sicily at Luchini Pizzeria & Bar, and to old Hollywood glamour at Beauty & Essex, with its multi-ethnic menu. But winning the Oscar for best-dressed set is The Highlight Room, an off-the-charts rooftop venue that brings together a spectacular cast: a contemporary Califonian menu, handcrafted cocktails, a swanky rooftop pool with perfectly padded loungers and private cabanas, and views out to the Hollywood sign.

Everytime I travel to LA, I stay at the Dream. It’s located in West Hollywood, and you have access to the best restaurants and clubs right beneath you including, Avenue, Beauty and Essex, and Tao. The rooms are extremely comfortable and there’s an amazing rooftop pool where I usually spend the entire day! Definitely recommended

My favorite hotel in LA! Always welcomed by friendly reception staff and the manager Yasmin who always makes my fiancee and I feel special when we arrive. I also love that they provide complimentary fresh coffee and orange lemon water at the front bar. The hotel is located a block from Starbucks and Equinox; two places I visit daily in NYC.

My favorite hotel in LA! Always welcomed by friendly reception staff and the manager Yasmin who always makes my fiancee and I feel special when we arrive. I also love that they provide complimentary fresh coffee and orange lemon water at the front bar. The hotel is located a block from Starbucks and Equinox; two places I visit daily in NYC. Also, if you like to buy your food from a grocery store, there is a Trader Joe’s a block away as well. If you like to go out at night for great food, drinks and music there’s TAO and Beauty and Essex. If you go up to the roof there is a fantastic pool with cabanas to relax and soak up the sun. Finally the rooms! The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. What makes them special is how modern and sexy the design is. Again, great hospitality and Yasmin thanks again for always going to the extra mile. Read less

This was my second time staying at the Dream Hollywood with my fiancé and absoutely loved it. Every time from the moment we checked in, the staff was incredibly courteous and helpful in any way in which we needed. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are clean and chic. My fiancé and I just got engaged in December and upon checking into our room we saw a personal note congratulating us on our engagement with a bottle of champagne. The rooftop pool and highlight bar/restaurant is my favorite part of the hotel with stunning views of Hollywood Hills. There are so many great restaurants and nightlife on site, it was so nice to step out of the lobby and be right next door to Tao, Beauty & Essex, Avenue and so much more. I definitely would recommended this hotel to my family and friends. Read less

This hotel is truly a oasis in the chaos of Hollywood. The front lobby is classy, comfortable, and has a fun vibe with a bar on the street. The front desk is friendly, helpful and efficient; the rooms very tastefully appointed with comfortable beds and linens.

This hotel is truly a oasis in the chaos of Hollywood. The front lobby is classy, comfortable, and has a fun vibe with a bar on the street. The front desk is friendly, helpful and efficient; the rooms very tastefully appointed with comfortable beds and linens. The rooftop pool area is also lovely, and the gym above-average for a hotel gym. The only negative from my stay is that I'd requested in advance a quiet room, and was assured at check-in that I was placed in a quiet part of the hotel. My room overlooked the loading dock of the Goya Studios sound stage (across the street from the hotel entrance) which has truck drivers playing loud music and loading studio props at all hours of the day and night. The sliding door to the balcony did a poor job of sealing out this noise. This is a great location in Hollywood - a few blocks away from Hollywood Blvd so you can get away from the tourist trappings, but close enough that you can walk to hundreds of restaurants and the Hollywood-Vine metro rail easily.
