Dream Hotel Hollywood, Los Angeles, USA

Dream Hotel Hollywood, Los Angeles, USA

With an MO based around a ‘built-in nightlife’, it’s no surprise that Dream Hotels has chosen to land its first West Coast location right at the corner of Hollywood’s Selma Avenue and Cahuenga Boulevard – an area that has become a bastion of limelight for the entertainment industry, with late-night revellers spilling out onto the streets until the wee hours.

Inside the Killefer Flammang-designed brick and glass building, New York-based Rockwell Group has taken its cues from the iconic homes of Los Angeles architects Richard Neutra and John Lautner, blending a dose of mid-century modern aesthetics with contemporary elements such as the custom wall screens behind the guestroom headboards that feature headlights at night on the freeway.

Highlights include the open-air bar on the ground floor and the rooftop pool and restaurant, but in true Dream Hotel style, a plethora of nightlife options – including the Studio Collective-designed TAO Asian bistro concept, Beauty & Essex – can be found in the adjacent building and are accessible via a linked walkway at street level.
