Dream Hollywood

Hollywood, Los Angeles

Virgin rating

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.

Extremely unprofessional!! I stayed at the hotel at the end of April, they held a $600 deposit (completely understandable, no problem at all). When we left on 2nd May they said it would be refunded within a week. It’s been 3 weeks and the funds haven’t returned to my account. The same has happened to my partners card at the hotel for the night… Read more
Extremely unprofessional!! I stayed at the hotel at the end of April, they held a $600 deposit (completely understandable, no problem at all). When we left on 2nd May they said it would be refunded within a week. It’s been 3 weeks and the funds haven’t returned to my account. The same has happened to my partners card at the hotel for the night stay that was on a separate booking. I’ve emailed numerous times, I had one reply back and have been ignored ever since. I’m so frustrated that no-one is responding to me or resolving the issue for us. Read less

From the time I booked Sara was excellent. I called with questions regarding the surrounding area and parking and she was patient and answered all question. The hotel is in a great location in Hollywood. It's walkable and calm during the day and certainly comes alive at night. With all of the action going on around, the hotel is still quiet… Read more
From the time I booked Sara was excellent. I called with questions regarding the surrounding area and parking and she was patient and answered all question. The hotel is in a great location in Hollywood. It's walkable and calm during the day and certainly comes alive at night. With all of the action going on around, the hotel is still quiet and peaceful for guests. We checked in around 1am and we wanted a room on a higher floor with a better view. Sara gave us a great room and a late checkout. The room was very nice, the lobby was very chic. I would certainly stay at the Dream Hollywood again. Read less

An amazing experience! My fiancé and I were truly wowed from the moment we stepped on the property! I had the pleasure of checking in with Sara AND she checked us out 6 days later… it’s all about alignment! We had the pleasure of meeting Vaughn Davis, the GM. It’s no wonder his hotel is so impeccable! Have you seen this man’s “work close”???… Read more

I spent last weekend at The Dream for a fun and relaxing weekend with a girlfriend. We do this regularly and like to choose hotels that have all the amenities so we don’t have to leave much. The Dream does have all the amenities and is in a great location. A couple glitches happened right off the bat (to no fault of the hotel) yet the staff, especially the manager Sara, who is the sweetest thing btw, did everything she could to literally fix the problems and make it right. Honestly, if she wasn’t involved I would probably be writing a horrible review because it could have derailed our weekend but she handled it so well it made everything ok! And because of that I will stay at The Dream again! Read less
