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 guest rooms, 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 Californian menu, handcrafted cocktails, a swanky rooftop pool with perfectly padded loungers and private cabanas, and views out to the Hollywood sign.

I miss it already. The water went out in my apartment building so I booked a last-minute one-night stay at the Dream. Staff was incredibly warm and accommodating, everything felt very airy and COVID-safe, the view from my room was incredible, with perfect light at golden hour for me to get work done in a robe from my bed.... I slept so well, and I… Read more

Booked 4 rooms for the same price. Arrived at the hotel and they told us they were booked so each room had to pay different wages. Totally unfair. Staff was unpleasant and wanted to charge us for the $60 dollar parking. We cancelled our rooms and wanted our car back and the guy didn’t want to return our car keys..

Literally had to talked to the Manager and still had to wait half an hour to get our car. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. Read less

The room is very comfortable; the hotel is lovely and the staff friendly and helpful. Phillip, one of the managers made me feel very welcome and brought me my favorite drink after I checked in. My best friend asked Phillip to deliver my drink in honor of my birthday.

The Dream Hollywood is a beautiful hotel. It was clean for the most part, with the exception of a couple of stains in the carpet.

The Dream Hollywood is a beautiful hotel. It was clean for the most part, with the exception of a couple of stains in the carpet. They did not offer room service, which kind of defeated the purpose of staying at a hotel rather than an AirBnB. Also, there were always a lot of people outside and in the common areas. This is a popular hotel amongst younger people ( I am one myself), but when I go away I like to relax. If you're looking for relaxation the I'd suggest you look elsewhere. The hotel is conveniently located near Hollywood Blvd. This is only good if you want to see the stars on the walk of fame. There are a couple of good dispensaries within walking distance. There's not much else that is spectacular about the area that the hotel is located in. The best way to explore LA and its surrounding counties to me is to stay in one of the outer areas and drive or take a car service into the city when you want to do some exploring. Also, Beauty & Essex is attached to the Dream Hollywood. Sunday brunch there is fabulous. Read less
