Dream Hollywood

Arrival/Check-In: The urban chic hotel dwells perfectly between Hollywood hip and corporate cool. Dream Hollywood welcomes you upon arrival with an open glass entryway showcasing a structured, organically lush lobby atmosphere filled with modern art and a lobby lounge bar that transforms for a morning cup of coffee or a post-work cocktail. Upon check-in with the extremely helpful and courteous staff, I made my way to the elevators and up to my room, enjoying the artwork as I awaited my elevator. I felt I had been transported to an ultra-cool setting — who knew who I’d run into here!

Guest Quarters: Each floor of the property features a calming, dimmed lighting to encourage a peaceful walk to your room. The room itself instantly had me saying, “Wow!” Many rooms (including mine) offer a floor-toceiling window with a view of Hollywood beyond. I happened to enter my room during the “golden hour,” which offered a lovely pink and orange California sunset. The room held every modern convenience necessary to stay connected while on a business trip but also offered modern, sleek furnishings for a fun and fashionable stay. The bed was extremely comfortable with luxurious linens. The minibar provided any essentials one would need for a nightcap, and the spacious bathroom, stocked with Co. Bigelow bath products, offered the perfect tools to head out the door looking red-carpet ready. If guests need any additional items, such as an umbrella, slippers, robe or a bag to carry a few items, they can check out the closet — everything is easily accessible and ready to use.

Services/Amenities: This property offers guests the opportunity to utilize one location for all their needs. Dream Hollywood and Tao Restaurants have something for every taste bud. If you are looking for nightlife and a club atmosphere, Avenue is the spot to go. It even has an exit that leads through to the pizza parlor on premises, Luchini Pizzeria & Bar. If you seek something a bit more refined yet trendy and elegant, the Beauty & Essex restaurant and the Tao Asian Bistro will surely please you. Want a view without leaving the property? Head to The Highlight Room, an amazing bar and lounge located poolside on the hotel roof. I ventured up there with my friend who lives in the area, and she enjoyed its customized cocktails and the superb views. After exhausting all those dining options, go for a quick jaunt in the hotel’s gym, custom-designed by trainer to the stars Gunnar Peterson, who curated each piece of equipment. For someone traveling, this facility is quite the treat. Overall, this property boasts an option to fit any lifestyle, placing everything right in your reach for a Hollywood trip to remember.

TOP TAKEAWAYS:

◆ Guests who decide to venture off property within a few miles can reserve the house car for going to dinner, a meeting or other activities.
◆ Dream Hollywood offers meeting and event spaces for parties, conferences and corporate events. The multiple Tao restaurants can also be reserved for events.
◆ In a rush, but want to look your best? Stop by the newly opened Glam & Go blow-dry bar attached to the hotel for an easy way to tame that mane and get you Hollywood-ready.
